    Getty Pro Football Focus ranked Jonathan Taylor and the other Indianapolis Colts running backs among the top RB units in the league. The Indianapolis Colts enter the 2022 season with question marks at a few different offensive positions. But running back is not one of them. With Jonathan Taylor, who finished first in the NFL in rushing yards last season, leading the way, the Colts feature one of the best running back groups in the league. In fact, NFL analyst Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus ranked Indianapolis’ running back unit the second best in the league behind only the Cleveland Browns. “After a strong close to his rookie season in 2020, Jonathan Taylor staked his claim last year as the NFL’s top running back with an 87.0 PFF grade that led all players at the position,” Linsey wrote. “He’s the type of running back who Indianapolis doesn’t necessarily want to take off the field, but the Colts have the depth to feel comfortable giving him a rest here and there. “Nyheim Hines is one of the better receiving...
    Getty Running back Phillip Lindsay shared with reporters why he signed with the Indianapolis Colts. Coming into the offseason, the Indianapolis Colts were seemingly looking to improve a few different offensive positions. Running back, though, was not one of them. But that didn’t stop former Pro Bowl back Phillip Lindsay from signing with the Indianapolis Colts.  Lindsay signed a one-year contract with the Colts on May 17. The financial details of the agreement have yet to be disclosed, but in all likelihood, the Colts landed Lindsay at a bargain price. And despite the presence of the NFL’s leading rusher from last season, Lindsay described Indianapolis has an attractive place for him too. “It’s a great organization,” Lindsay told reporters at OTAs. “The way they run things, the leadership here, it’s something that you want to be a part of. It’s something special here.” ALL the latest Colts news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Colts newsletter here! Join Heavy on Colts!

    Getty There are a lot of underrated matchups on the 2022 schedule for wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. and the Indianapolis Colts The 2022 schedule for the Indianapolis Colts will feature eight matchups with postseason teams and four other games against teams who had at least seven victories last season. The 2022 Colts slate will also include three opposing starting quarterbacks who have been on Super Bowl winning teams. Indianapolis’ showdown with one of those Super Bowl winning signal callers is the most underrated matchup on the team’s 2022 schedule. That would be the Week 5 matchup against Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on Oct. 6.

    Getty NFL analyst Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report ranked a move from the Indianapolis Colts the best of the offseason. The Indianapolis Colts have done a lot of moves this offseason that members of the media have deemed smart. But one of them tops them all. That would be trading a third-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons for 14-year veteran quarterback Matt Ryan. NFL analyst Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report called the acquisition not only the best from the Colts this offseason, but the top move around the entire NFL. “Once Ryan chose to leave Atlanta because of the Falcons’ pursuit of Deshaun Watson, the Colts struck a deal to acquire the 36-year-old for their original third-round selection, which was lower than the one they acquired from Washington in the Wentz deal,” Sobleski wrote. “Also, Ryan’s salary-cap hit this season is $8.3 million less than Wentz’s.” ALL the latest Colts news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Indianapolis Colts media raved about the draft picks Chris Ballard made on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft. The Indianapolis Colts didn’t have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. But the early indication is general manager Chris Ballard more than made up for the lack of a first-rounder with a stellar Day 2 at this year’s draft. The early reaction from media members who follow the Colts is that Ballard and the organization had a terrific night on Day 2 picking talented prospects that fill needs. Count NFL Draft analyst Louis Riddick of ESPN as a fan of Indianapolis’ draft picks on Day 2 as well. To conclude the Day 2 ESPN draft broadcast, Riddick mentioned the Colts as a team that can make some noise this season with its second and third-round picks.

    Getty The Indianapolis Colts reportedly signed cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay has said this offseason that the Colts were looking into signing a big-named defensive free agent. The Colts finally followed through with that interest on April 15. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Colts are signing cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a two-year deal. Gilmore is signing in Indianapolis two days after visiting the Colts facility. Gilmore is a five-time Pro Bowler and won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 2019. ALL the latest Colts news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Colts newsletter here!

    Getty The Indianapolis Colts and head coach Frank Reich visited with two-time All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore. The Indianapolis Colts began the offseason slowly by only re-signing a few of their own free agents. But things have begun to pick up for the Colts in April, and the team could still make a major splash in free agency. At least that’s the indication after Colts beat writer Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star tweeted on April 13 that the team hosted two-time All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore for a visit. This visit comes less than two weeks after Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay told Colts.com that the organization is still considering veteran free agents on defense. “There could be — it would have to be at the right price because we don’t have much cap room — an addition that excites some. But we’ll see,” Irsay said. “It’s possible. I know Chris Ballard is looking hard at that, trying to find the right individual. It has to be the right guy at the right number. “One more veteran possibly to come in and...
    Getty Quarterback Carson Wentz said he was 'definitely surprised' with how things ended with the Indianapolis Colts during his introductory press conference in Washington. The Washington Commanders held an introductory press conference for new quarterback Carson Wentz on March 17. But a lot of the presser seemed less like an introduction and more of a rehashing of what happened for Wentz with the Indianapolis Colts. In particular, Wentz answered a few different questions about how things concluded with the Colts. While the quarterback said he is very excited about the new opportunity in Washington, he was “definitely surprised” by how things ended in Indianapolis. “Anytime you are in a new place, you want it to work out,” Wentz said. “You want to be there. You want to do the best you can for that team, that organization, that fanbase. God willing — it works out for a long time. It didn’t. God changed our plans.” Carson Wentz said he was "definitely surprised" by how things ended in Indianapolis. pic.twitter.com/s2IoKjGNLV Read More From Heavy Bet $5, Win $150 Whether Your...
    The NFL quarterback carousel keeps turning at a dizzying pace. And yet Jimmy Garoppolo is still on the San Francisco 49ers roster. Wednesday’s big move — the Colts trading Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders — doesn’t actually do much to appreciably change the odds of Garoppolo being traded in the coming days. The top target has simply moved west. Before Wednesday’s baffling trade — the second clear-cut fleecing in a quarterback trade as many days (in this case, the team trading the quarterback won the deal) — the Commanders were the most viable landing spot for Garoppolo. Seeing what they sent to Indianapolis for Wentz and the money they’ll take on as part of the deal, they were correctly identified as marks. The Colts are anything but marks. Acquiring Wentz was a mistake, but they corrected that mistake in short order. They’re only marginally worse for wear. Now they need a starting quarterback. Looking at the market, Garoppolo is the top option available. And while my negative opinion of Garoppolo the player is...
    The Indianapolis Colts have to be one of the teams who could conceivably trade for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. No good NFL team has had more chaos at the quarterback position in recent years than the Indianapolis Colts, so it would not be shocking if they ended up trading for San Francisco 49ers starter Jimmy Garoppolo before the 2022 NFL Draft. Garoppolo is in the final year of his contract with the 49ers. He will be 31 years old in 2022, slated to make $25.55 million for whatever team he plays for. With San Francisco potentially looking to start last year’s No. 3 overall pick in Trey Lance, that makes the former second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois expendable. The 49ers could trade him, but will Garoppolo being going to the Colts? Here are the pros and cons of the Colts orchestrating a trade for Garoppolo this offseason.Indianapolis Colts: Pros of trading for Jimmy GaroppoloThe biggest thing Garoppolo can provide the Colts is stability. He knows what he is and he can thrive playing in Frank Reich’s offense. Garoppolo would be playing...
    Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich has watched Alan Williams in action the last four seasons, impressed with Williams’ ability to teach and lead the team’s secondary. “Alan has great energy on the field,” Reich said Tuesday. “Watching him run drills, he has good energy, good body language. There’s a good, positive vibe to him. He can connect. Alan’s an excellent football coach.” Williams has been the Colts defensive backs coach since 2018, working under Reich and Matt Eberflus. Now he’s following Eberflus to Chicago, agreeing Wednesday to become the Bears defensive coordinator. It’s a role Williams, 52, has held before — for two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings in 2012 and 2013 — but that stint wasn’t spectacular. The Vikings went to the playoffs in Williams’ first season overseeing the defense, winning 10 games while finishing fifth in the league in sacks, 22nd in takeaways, 16th in total yards allowed and 14th in points allowed. The following season — on the way to a 5-10-1 backslide that cost head coach Leslie Frazier and much of his...

After four years with the Dirty Birds, it certainly feels like wide receiver Calvin Ridley has played his final game in an Atlanta Falcons uniform. The former first-round pick out of Alabama only played in five games with the Falcons this past season. He cited mental health issues as the reason he has not suited up for the Falcons since Oct. 24. Because Atlanta did extend him the fifth-year option, he will be under contract for the 2022 NFL season for whatever team he ends up playing for. Ridley will hit free agency in winter 2023.

    The Indianapolis Colts are donning some pretty sweet throwback helmets from 1956 going up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  One of the more intriguing matchups of the weekend is no doubt the showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even leading up to the opening kickoff, though, the Colts were stealing the show thanks to their uniforms. Better yet, their helmets. For the Sunday tilt, Indy is rocking throwback helmets from the 1956 season.

    Kyle Zedaker/Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Colts’ star player, running back Jonathan Taylor is Tom Brady’s main competition for the MVP award this season and coming off one of the most dominant performances by a player we’ve seen in the past decade. The former Wisconsin Badger did it last week against one of the best defenses in the NFL (third to be exact) in the Buffalo Bills, racking up five total touchdowns and 185 yards rushing. Don’t expect Taylor to have another elite performance against the Bucs and their top rated run defense, but with the Colts’ dominant offensive line and Taylor’s dynamic playmaking ability, the Bucs could be in for a rough game. Indianapolis is one of the hottest teams in the NFL going into today’s matchup, having gone 6-2 in its past 8 games since a 0-3 start to the season. Their only losses came against two of the best teams in football in the Ravens and the Titans. All of this spells what could be a really difficult matchup for the defending Super Bowl champs, especially with Antonio Brown...
    The Indianapolis Colts beating the New York Jets 45-30 Thursday night didn’t get great TV ratings.

    Frank Reich, Indianapolis Colts. (Mandatory Credit: Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports) The NFL will run through some head coaches, and will continue to do so for the rest of time. Every offseason, roughly a quarter of the NFL‘s teams will be employing a new head coach. It may not always be an ineffective head coach’s fault, but the NFL is a business. Most teams are in the business of winning, so some organizations may not tolerate excuses, posturing or losing above all else. Though only one team has a vacancy heading towards 2022 (Las Vegas Raiders), these head coaches could be feeling some pressure after how the first eight weeks have gone.

    Carson Wentz was supposed to help save the Indianapolis Colts but the quarterback might’ve just effectively ended their season against the Titans. After winning in a monsoon against the 49ers last week, Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts seemed as if they might be on the verge of making a run. A Week 8 matchup against the rival Titans was a huge opportunity for them to prove that. Early on, it seemed as if that would be the case and Indianapolis would keep rolling as the Colts jumped out to a big lead largely because of Wentz. But with Tennessee clawing back into the game, the wheels started to come off when it mattered most. Namely, at the end of the fourth quarter and then in overtime, Carson Wentz might’ve put the nail in the coffin for Indy’s season.Carson Wentz’s terrible interceptions might’ve ended the Colts’ seasonWith the game tied at the end of regulation, Wentz made a throw he should’ve never attempted and Titans cornerback Elijah Molden let it fall into his breadbasket and waltzed into the end zone...

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz threw an awful interception against the 49ers. During the 30-18 Sunday night win for Indy, the Colts had driven deep into the end zone when Wentz made one of the worst passes I’ve ever seen.

    Getty Troy Reeder celebrates his interception with Darious Williams and David Long Jr. against the Indianapolis Colts. In April of 2019, Troy Reeder was an undrafted linebacker out of Delaware fighting his way to a roster spot on the Los Angeles Rams. Two years later, Reeder delivered the crucial moments on Sunday, September 19 in Indianapolis that prove the Rams were smart to keep this undrafted underdog on the roster. In a 27-24 road win over the Indianapolis Colts that saw the usual standout defenders Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey make the defensive plays they’ve grown accustomed to making during the fall months, Reeder quietly put together a memorable performance on his end…including bailing out the Rams during one sequence at Lucas Oil Stadium.Being at ‘The Right Place at the Right Time’Facing 3rd and goal from their 4-yard line, the Rams’ early 7-3 lead was in jeopardy of going back the Colts’ way.

    Frank Reich, Indianapolis Colts. (USA Today) You are only a head coach in the NFL until you are fired or you decide to retire from coaching. As it will be every NFL offseason, several head coaches will get the ax either around Black Monday or even sometime before that if their former team was terrible enough. Last offseason cycle saw seven head-coaching changes. It may not be that many this winter, but there is no way all 32 head coaches are returning in 2022. While some head coaches like Urban Meyer and Arthur Smith did not look good in their NFL debuts, it is not like the Detroit Lions, the Jacksonville Jaguars or the Atlanta Falcons were expected to contend for the playoffs anyway.

    "I think once I get a grasp of it — just like the playbook — you've got to get comfortable with something. You can say, 'OK, I'm going to put this in my body.'" We might be seeing a breakthrough in the debate about the NFL's COVID vaccine crisis, though. And by that, I mean that the Colts might be starting a public debate about it rather than what we've seen so far, which is vaxxers barking at their moon and anti-vaxxers barking at theirs. We don't recognize actual thinking on this topic, don't grasp nuance or lack of absolute certainty. No one asks the questions. No one offers the answers. Leonard is an example of what big-name football players should be doing. That might be what's going on with the Colts and could lead to a healthy discussion about the vaccination. The pressure to be jabbed has created a new minority: Unvaxxed Americans. They don't have a voice. And the media were supposed to speak for the voiceless. Instead, they are bullying them on a highly personal subject....
    Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Sam Ehlinger pulled off an unreal pass during Friday’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions. Indianapolis Colts fans got a good look at the backup quarterbacks Jacob Eason and Sam Ehlinger this preseason after starter Carson Wentz underwent foot surgery. In the final game of the preseason, Ehlinger made the highlight reel. At the tail end of the first half against the Detroit Lions, Ehlinger was seemingly wrapped up by defensive lineman Kevin Strong for a surefire sack. That was not the case, as Ehlinger escaped the tackle and unleashed a beautiful dime pass to wideout Dezmon Patmon for a 60-yard gain. Next level from Sam Ehlinger. @[email protected] | #INDvsDET pic.twitter.com/A0jPJWLW8n — NFL (@NFL) August 28, 2021 Sam Ehlinger has best throw and play of the 2021 preseasonSorry Trey Lance, but Ehlinger has you beat on the best pass of the preseason.

    Credit: The Indianapolis Star-USA TODAY Sports With the status Carson Wentz up in the air, where could the Indianapolis Colts turn for a fill-in? Training camp has barely started around the NFL, and there’s already a notable injury. According to ESPN, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz will be sidelined indefinitely with a foot injury. Adam Schefter has reported the injury is not expected to be season-ending. But NFL Network’s Michael Silver reported the team was “bracing” for surgery, and Wentz’s injury involves a bone and a ligament. It’s early to make any broad declarations about how much time Wentz will miss. But surgery would definitely sideline him into the regular season, and leave the Colts without the quarterback they invested a lot in with an offseason trade. The Colts are an AFC contender, with a run to the Super Bowl within the range of outcomes if Wentz could stay healthy and play more like he did earlier in his time with the Philadelphia Eagles. The first part of that equation already looks to be out the window, at least partially,...
    Indianapolis Colts running back is hopeful that players will be treated with respect no matter what vaccine choice they make. Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has something in common with every running back in the NFL or probably whoever played the game of football. “There is a guy on our team who had open heart surgery so he is scared what the vaccine can do,” Hines said. “Each person has different health precautions. I think every person’s reason to why they are getting vaccinated or why they are not is something we should take into account.” Nyheim Hines is supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) through the Jiffy Lube #Drive2DoMore campaign that supports research and care to fund treatments and find cures for people living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases.
    INDIANAPOLIS, IN – AUGUST 20: Le’Raven Clark #62 of the Indianapolis Colts is seen during the game against the Baltimore Ravens at Lucas Oil Stadium on August 20, 2016 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Michael Hickey/Getty Images) The 2017 season featured a win in Super Bowl LII. Now the Philadelphia Eagles begin anew. And it figures to be a busy time for general manager Howie Roseman. In 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles gave up plenty to move up to the second spot in the draft to select quarterback Carson Wentz. He started all 16 games as a rookie and put up MVP-like numbers a year later before suffering a knee injury. His stay with the club was eventually marred by more injuries and a penchant for turnovers. This offseason, he was dealt to Indianapolis. And after a highly-disappointing 4-11-1 showing, head coach Doug Pederson was shown the door. Speaking of the Colts, former Colts’ offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni is the new sideline leader. The team has its share of holes to fill after missing the playoffs for the first time since...
    Sam Ehlinger is headed to the Indianapolis Colts. The former superstar Texas quarterback was drafted in the sixth round of the draft Saturday, and he’ll now join the same quarterbacks room as Carson Wentz and Jacob Eason. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Indianapolis Colts (@colts) I’m very happy to see Ehlinger get selected in the draft and find his new home in the NFL. He was a hell of a player for the Longhorns, and his intelligence is off of the charts. When you see him speak, you can see the wheels turning in his mind. In terms of QB intelligence, he’s got all you could ever want.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Sam Ehlinger (@sehlinger) There have been a lot of questions about whether or not Ehlinger has the arm to make it in the NFL, and I understand the concern. He’s an outstanding athlete and he did well in college using his legs...
    Next1 of 5Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse The Indianapolis Colts have a new quarterback, but these five breakout candidates will be critical cogs in 2021. For the fourth time in his four seasons as Indianapolis Colts head coach, Frank Reich will have a new starting quarterback in 2021. But it’s one he knows well, as Carson Wentz was acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles. Reich was the offensive coordinator in Philadelphia for Wentz’s first two seasons. With Philip Rivers under center last year, the Colts went 11-5 and narrowly lost to the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card Round. At some point the next step has to come, with roster that has a nice mix of veterans and promising young talent. General manager Chris Ballard deserves a ton of credit for a calculated rebuild/reload, but the Colts have hitched their wagon to the idea Reich can fix Wentz. Wentz finding his form again will be the No. 1 key for the Colts in 2021. But if they can get breakout performances from these five players, a deep playoff...

    The Indianapolis Colt brought back veteran wide receiver T.Y. Hilton on a. one-year deal worth up to $10 million with incentives. The Ghost is back in Indy. On Wednesday afternoon, the Indianapolis Colts re-signed wide receiver T.Y. Hilton to a one-year, $8 million deal worth up to $10 million with incentives. The 31-year-old Florida native has spent his entire nine-year career with the team. For the Colts, bringing Hilton back into the fold makes ample sense. Indianapolis has barely spent any of its considerable cap space, and while the former FIU star isn’t what he once was, he remains one of the better route-runners in the league who can produce at a WR2 level. Last year, Hilton played in 15 games and caught 56 passes for 762 yards and five touchdowns. This was coming off a 2019 where the veteran receiver was limited to 10 games, notching 45 receptions for 501 yards and another five scores. However, he’s largely been both very productive and durable, with five 1,000-yard seasons and only 10 games missed over his pro career. For...
    PITTSBURGH, PA – DECEMBER 27: Head coach Frank Reich of the Indianapolis Colts looks on during the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on December 27, 2020 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images) The Colts need to spend wisely in free agency to help Carson Wentz succeed. That means Indianapolis should avoid overpaying these three stars.  Indianapolis’ decision to trade for Carson Wentz is still reverberating around the NFL landscape. The Colts’ front office can’t afford to rest on their laurels. They should already be making plans on how to spend the massive amount of cap space they possess later in the offseason. For the record, Indianapolis still projects to have over $43 million in space even after absorbing Wentz’s contract. The time is now for the Colts to go all-in to become a legitimate Super Bowl contender in 2021. That doesn’t mean Indianapolis can afford to spend its money haphazardly. It’s still imperative that the franchise continue to build their roster in a fiscally responsible manner. Overspending on a big-name free agent could do a...
    New York : The Indianapolis Colts closed Thursday the acquisition of quarterback Carson Wentz after closing its transfer with the Philadelphia Eagles, who received a second-round selection from the 2022 Draft, which could later become a a first round if Wentz reaches the 75% of plays completed and the team reaches the playoffs. The Indianapolis team believes that can relive the player’s career trained at North Dakota State University and has assumed the four-year, $ 128 million extension of dollars that Wentz signed with the Eagles before the 2019 season.

[????: brgridiron] pic.twitter.com/RYdjfydj10 – Colts Mexico (@Colts_Mexico) February 18, 2021 Wentz, second overall pick in 2016 Draft quickly fell from grace in Philly after helping the franchise win its first Super Bowl in 2017. He started 13 games that season before a serious knee injury ended his year. It never fully recovered its effectiveness and finally lost the starting job to Jalen Hurts in 2020. Wentz concluded his final season in Philadelphia with 2,620 passing yards, career-low 16 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions in 12 games....
    The Indianapolis Colts are hoping for resurgence with Carson Wentz on the roster.  Give it up for Chris Ballard. He entered the starting contest and didn’t blink. Best of all, the Eagles will take a $33.8 million cap hit just to have Wentz playing in Lucas Oil Stadium. Call that a win for Ballard. If Wentz can return to 2017 form, the Colts should be a contender. Credit to Indianapolis for going all-in instead of playing it safe. Next: Who won the Carson Wetnz trade?

Here are three signal-callers they can target to fill the vacancy.  The Colts wanted Philip Rivers to come back for one more season, but his retirement could easily turn into a blessing in disguise for the franchise. Indianapolis now has a chance to go out and acquire a real difference-maker at the quarterback position. Finding that kind of upgrade won’t be easy. Quarterback is, after all, the most important position in the modern NFL.
