Quote:
Here are some things to watch:

• Offensive growth: There’s little doubt quarterback Andrew Luck will direct an efficient, productive passing attack. In two games – six possessions, 32 plays – he has completed 68.4 percent of his passes with a 128.8 passer rating. Luck’s final three drives last Sunday against the New York Giants produced two touchdowns and a field goal by Adam Vinatieri.

But the running game has yet to gain traction. Some of that has to do with the absence of Ahmad Bradshaw, who will miss his third game while recovering from January foot surgery. Minus Bradshaw, Colts running backs have averaged 3.1 yards. Vick Ballard and Donald Brown are a combined 53 yards on 16 carries (3.3).

Look for coordinator Pep Hamilton to continue to stress the running game, but he’ll be without starting tight ends Coby Fleener (knee) and Dwayne Allen (foot). As much as he might want to lean on his tight ends for blocking, he can’t wear down Justice Cunningham and Dominique Jones.

• Tighter defense: It’s been a mixed bag for coordinator Greg Manusky, but things are trending in the right direction. The run defense is allowing 115.5 yards per game, but that figure is inflated by the Colts being gashed for four runs of at least 15 yards. Opponents are getting just 3.6 yards per attempt.

The front-liners occasionally bent against the Giants, then showed their stubborn side by allowing three field goals on New York’s four first-half red-zone trips. The defense also flashed its playmaking potential with cornerback Greg Toler’s interception and six sacks.

However, of the seven preseason sacks, Erik Walden’s is the only one from the front-liners. Robert Mathis has played sparingly, and that likely will be the case against Cleveland. Continued growth from first-round draft pick Bjoern Werner is critical.


Quote:
• First timers: Safety LaRon Landry and rookie guard Hugh Thornton make their debuts as Colts, and linebacker Pat Angerer makes his first appearance since undergoing a second surgery on his right foot in January. Each needs repetitions under game conditions.


Quote:
Last timers: The NFL’s unemployment line swells by 480 on Tuesday when 90-player rosters must be trimmed to 75. The final cut to 53 is Aug. 31.

Among players ruled out of the game by coach Chuck Pagano are running back Ahmad Bradshaw, tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, and guard Mike McGlynn.

However, safety LaRon Landry, linebacker Pat Angerer and rookie guard Hugh Thornton are expected to see their first action of the preseason.

How could they not?

I am looking forward to seeing Luck play again, even if he was the 4th best QB to come out last year. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Wonder if Brazil has injury, or they know he wont be available till week 4 so why have him get major reps in what is last dress rehearsal before regular season.
