Broncos short passing gameAfter Emmanuel Sanders’ trade https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Le_Raven-Clark-Jersey , 3 of the top 4 Broncos receivers are either tight ends or running backs, so it was key for the Colts to shut down the Broncos short passing attack, and the linebackers delivered. Even though Lindsay, Freeman and Fant collectively totaled 11 catches, they only managed to gain 48 yards. This was mainly due to Leonard and Walker’s excellent tackling and instincts. The duo finished the game with a combined 17 tackles, and were all over the field on Sunday. It is clear that Walker has benefited a lot from returning to his usual spot on the field after The Maniac came back from his concussion.Colts RBs and TEs Vs. Broncos linebackersOn the other hand, the Colts running backs and tight ends had a good game against the Broncos linebackers. Ebron Khari Willis Jersey , Doyle and Hines combined for 10 of the Colts 15 receptions and had 121 yards. On a day where the Colts receivers could not get any separation, the tight ends winning their individual battles and Hines providing a spark was key.Mark Glowinski Vs. Von Miller and Derek WolfeJust a week after getting destroyed by J.J Watt, Glowinski had to face yet another elite pass-rusher in Von Miller as well as Derek Wolfe, depending on the play the Broncos defense ran. Glowinski had perhaps one of his worst games in a Colts uniform, and could not handle any of the Broncos stunts on the defensive line. For example, if you look at Jacoby’s crucial play late in the 4th, Von Miller gets a free rush at the quarterback because Glowinski failed to recognize the stunt and react to it.Rock Ya-Sin Vs. Courtland SuttonWhat an ugly game for the Colts’ rookie cornerback. Let’s just hope this was his “Welcome to the NFL” moment and not the norm http://www.coltsfanshop.com/Bobby-Okereke-Jersey , going forward. Sutton had Ya-Sin’s number all day long, racking up 3 catches for 72 yards, but also getting 5 penalties called on Rock, all resulting on first downs. After the Broncos’ only touchdown drive of the game, Eberflus finally started sending some help Rock’s way, and also calling some zone coverages, which helped Ya-Sin a lot Parris Campbell Jersey , but it was already clear that Sutton dominated Ya-Sin. Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors last season despite an ankle injury that plagued him throughout the season.Leonard missed just one game due to the injury but it was a constant irritant during the campaign. Leonard had surgery this offseason to get the ankle cleaned up and is happy that it’s no longer an issue.“I thought, with the rest, that it would heal by itself, but coming back, running on it, it didn’t feel good,” Leonard said http://www.coltsfanshop.com/Ben-Banogu-Jersey , via Joel A. Erickson of the . “I wasn’t 100 percent. I’m just glad we caught it when we did.”The surgery has kept Leonard from participating in offseason workouts and he won’t take part in the team’s mandatory mini-camp this week while recovering. However, Leonard is confident he’ll be ready to go for training camp next month.“That’s the plan,” he said.Leonard 163 total tackles with 111 solo tackles during his rookie season in Indianapolis.
