Colts hoping to turn things around at Tennessee

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Andrew Luck has no problem doing his homework.

Colts With a Run Game: What?

It looks a little early to say, but the Associated Press just reported that the 2012 Indianapolis Colts have a run game. Shocking, right? Still, I'm thinking it must be true. 147 yards on Sunday, next to 186 passing yards, with a backup running back. In perspective, the Colts rushed for over 100 yards five times last year, and have already rushed for 100+ three times in six...

Widlic: Colts Look to End the Streak

I've taken some heavy flak recently for linking to Bob Kravitz and Brad Wells, but I think I finally have an entirely uncontroversial reporter in Chris Widlic.
