Colts prepare for playoff run in 2013

(Continued)

The Colts have pretty good quality at receiver with Wayne, Heyward-Bey and Hilton. Heyward-Bey and Hilton will share one outside receiver position, with Hilton also getting work in the slot. Whalen is the No. 4 receiver for now with Brazill being sidelined for the first four games of the season due to violations of the league’s substance abuse policies. Reed is recovering from a concussion suffered in the final pre-season game but is expected to be the No. 5 receiver for now.

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN:

Starters – LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Donald Thomas, C Samson Satele, RG Mike McGlynn, RT Gosder Cherilis. Backups – C/G Khaled Holmes, G/T Jeff Linkenbach, T/G Joe Reitz, G Hugh Thornton.

Castonzo is recovering from a sprained knee but is expected to be in the starting lineup against Oakland in the season opener. McGlynn is also rehabbing a sore knee. He should start as well. Satele returns for his second season as a starter. Thomas and Cherilis were signed as veteran free agents during the offseason and will hopefully help to stabilize the Colts’ offensive line. Holmes and Thornton are promising rookies who could push for playing time. Linkenbach and Reitz are both versatile veterans who can play several positions.

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN:

Starters – DE Cory Redding, NT Aubrayo Franklin, DT Ricky Jean Francois. Backups – NT Josh Chapman, DT Montori Hughes, DT Ricardo Mathews, DE Fili Moala.

Two new starters in Franklin and Jean Francois with Redding the lone returnee from the 2012 season. Chapman is expected to see plenty of work as he rotates with Franklin at nose tackle. Versatility earmarks the rest of the defensive line as Hughes, Mathews and Moala can all play dual positions. Hughes has been impressive as a nose tackle and defensive tackle. Mathews and Moala have proven adept at playing tackle and end.
