Colts interim head coach Bruce Arians could face tampering charges from the NFL for stating that he'd love to have Lions star Ndamukong Suh on his team.
As much as Bruce Arians is enjoying leading the Indianapolis Colts as the team's interim coach, he has made it clear exactly where his loyalties lie. Arians, who has led the Colts to a 7-4 record heading into Sunday's game at Detroit, continues to give all credit for the team's unexpected run of success this season to his boss, coach Chuck Pagano. Indianapolis was...
It probably wasn’t meant a recruiting pitch, but Bruce Arians of the Indianapolis Colts went a little too far while discussing the talents of Ndamukong Suh. Arians made comments about Suh that were in contrast to those made by Texans QB, Matt Schaub. Unlike Schaub, Arians doesn’t see Suh as a dirty player. He should [...]
The spotlight continues to shine brightly on T.Y. Hilton.
The Indianapolis Colts rookie receiver/return man has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his impactful game against the Buffalo Bills.
Hilton, a third-round draft pick, gave the Colts a 7-0 first-quarter lead by returning a punt 75 yards for a touchdown. It was the Colts first TD with a punt return...
Colts cornerback Vontae Davis, who has missed the last four games with an injured left knee, is expected to start Sunday at Detroit.
Interim coach Bruce Arians says safety Tom Zbikowski will not make the trip because of a right knee injury. Sergio Brown will likely replace Zbikowski in the starting lineup, and Brown will split time with backup Joe Lefeged.
Arians also says coach...
Rookie safety Delano Howell was signed to the Indianapolis Colts' active roster from the practice squad of the Buffalo Bills. Howell entered the league as an undrafted free agent from Stanford. He played in one game with the Bills and was waived, then re-signed, twice. Offensive guard Seth Olsen was cleared to return to practice, but remains on injured reserve. Olsen has...
Luck vs Stafford will undoubtedly provide entertainment
It’s no secret that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been as good as advertised so far in 2012. He’s turned a 2-14 ball club into a playoff contender, and has done it in style.
Luck has thrown for 3,205 yards and 13 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, leading the Colts to a 7-4 record.
If the season ended...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer As the NFL game slows down for him, T.Y. Hilton is playing faster. As opponents pay more attention to Reggie Wayne, he is emerging as a key contributor. And as the smallest player on the Colts' roster, Hilton is making a huge impact.
The 5-foot-9, 183-pound rookie couldn't dream of a better way to start a...
Colts interim coach Bruce Arians expects Chuck Pagano to take full control of the team when he returns -- even if that means making a coaching change in the playoffs.
"If he comes back, he'll be the head coach," Arians said when asked if Pagano would be making all of the game day decisions.
It's the most definitive answer the Colts (7-4) have given since Pagano...
Not much was expected of the Indianapolis Colts this season, but they're right in the AFC playoff hunt.
The Detroit Lions are well out of the NFC race after ending a lengthy postseason drought a year ago.
The Colts will go for their sixth victory in seven games on Sunday while the host Lions try to avoid a fourth straight loss.
While much was expected from No. 1 overall pick...
Colts rookie tight end Coby Fleener (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. SOURCE: Tom James, Terre Haute Tribune-StarFantasy Spin:Fleener hasn't played since Week 8, but he hasn't been fantasy relevant since Week 1. He shouldn't be started until he proves otherwise.
Indianapolis Colts (7-4) at Detroit Lions (4-7)
The Lions are in a bad spot and normally this is the type of team I like to stay away from. They are favorites after a loss as dogs and will next be dogs. Last week, they lost to the Texans and next week they have to go to Green Bay. That’s called a sandwich game. Teams tend to take it easy in the middle part of that 3 game stretch...
Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions The Colts running game is dead. There is a glimmer of hope going against a bad Lions defense, but with this being the last match up for many playoff hopeful teams, I wouldn’t risk going with Vick Ballard or Donald Brown. I will take the risk of Mikel Leshourse. Two [...]
Former Colts offensive coordinator Tom Moore has been hired by the Titans to assist with the teams offense the rest of the season.
Moore, who coordinated the Colts high-flying offense for 12 years, was at Baptist Sports Park on Thursday, and attended practice.
Munchak said Moore doesnt have a title, but hell work with the team the rest of the season.
Hell be a resource...
