  • Colts' Kemoko Turay: Resumes on-field work

    Turay (ankle) is rehabbing at the Colts' facility and has resumed participating in some on-field work, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

    Turay is working his way back from ankle surgery undergone in October. He was limited to just four contests in 2019, but he appeared in 14 games as a rookie and notched four sacks to go with 15 total tackles. The 2018 second-round pick has flashed upside in the form of dominant speed when healthy, so if he recovers in time to kick off the 2020 campaign it could provide a notable boost to Indianapolis' defensive front.

  • Colts' Philip Rivers: Could stay in Indy past 2020

    Coach Frank Reich is optimistic Rivers will play more than one season for the Colts, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

    Rivers had one of his worst seasons in 2019 and then signed a one-year, $25 million contract with Indianapolis. While both factors may hint at a short relationship, it sounds like the Colts will try to keep Rivers around if he rebounds in his age-38 season ahead. Already boasting an elite offensive line, the team added USC wideout Michael Pittman and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor in the second round of last month's draft. A better running game than the one he had in Los Angeles could provide Rivers with more red-zone chances, but it also means he's unlikely to approach his 2019 total of 591 pass attempts.

  • Colts' Nyheim Hines: Expected to play significant role

    Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni indicated during a media session Monday that he anticipates Hines playing a significant role in the passing game in 2020, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

    Hines has more competition for reps with second-round rookie Jonathan Taylor joining Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins in the Indianapolis backfield. Fortunately for Hines, none of the other three is particularly proficient as a pass catcher, an area where the third-year back shines. With Indianapolis bringing in quarterback Philip Rivers to run the offense, Sirianni suggested Hines could handle a similar role as Danny Woodhead did with the Chargers in 2015, when he compiled 80 receptions while playing alongside Rivers. The 38-year-old Rivers has become even more reliant on his running backs in the years that followed Woodhead's departure, as he targeted Austin Ekeler 108 times in his final season with the Chargers.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Still viewed as focal point

    Hilton is still viewed as the focus of the Indianapolis offense even with the star receiver being slowed by injury the past two seasons and with the Colts taking Michael Pittman in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni told the team's official web site. "I think about where we're at - things will be schemed to get him the football," he said.

    Hilton played a career-low 10 games last season due to a calf injury after missing two games and being limited by abdominal and ankle injuries in 2018. Sirianni said Hilton has been working hard in the offseason to get back to top shape and Hilton didn't need offseason surgery for his calf injury, which he said was fully healthy at the end of the season. While better health could improve Hilton's outlook, improved quarterback play from new starter Philip Rivers could be just as large a factor.
