The Colts head to Cincinnati to play the Bengals who ironically, they play week one of the regular season. With a 2-1 record this preseason, most of the Colts first stringers will not play much if at all which allows us to see some position groups with the most competition.
The Colts wide receiver group is stacked with each week having a UDFA lead the team in yards and receptions. Over the past three weeks, the wide receivers have impressed hugely against some top-tier cornerbacks. This final preseason week look for who’s getting the most reps and who is shining as not only a member of the 53 man roster but as a potential starter later into the season.
Linebackers seem to be the number one struggle spot as of now for the Colts. With the former fourth-round pick, Antonio Morrison traded to the Packers, there’s a couple spots left for grabs. The left outside linebacker spot seems to be second-round pick Darius Leonard’s but as for the middle and right outside linebacker spots, there are a couple contenders. UDFA Skai Moore has had a great preseason along with veteran Najee Goode. 2017 late round draft pick Anthony Walker is also a sleeper at the Mike spot as he has battled an injury just a bit ago. Whoever plays today, look for any surprise players that could stick around.
Lastly is the Bengals, who the Colts face week 1 this season. Watch what play types and schemes the Bengals run to possibly read into their week one play. Being able to predict their plays and plays type would give the Colts a huge advantage come the first game of this hyped season!
