At some point early during Thursday’s preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals look over at Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano and you’ll likely see a player wearing the No. 46 jersey standing near him.
It’ll be like that in the second third and fourth quarter too.
Linebacker Daniel Adongo stood close to Pagano in the first three preseason games.
The rookie likes to stand near his coach so he can learn and also be ready in case he gets called into the game.
The coaching staff hasn’t called his name yet and they likely won’t call on Adongo against the Bengals.
“I don’t think we’re ready to throw him out there yet” Pagano said. “I’m just going to protect Daniel from himself. I’m not worried about him giving effort. I’m not worried about him knowing what to do. I’m just worried about the speed of the game and our opponent and something happening to him.”
Adongo will likely be cut once the Colts trim their roster to the league-mandatory 53 players by 6 p.m. on Sat
