AFC South: Devin Moore

A Sunday evening look around

August, 28, 2011
A quick look around the AFC South Sunday evening…

The Colts released eight players. Gone are guard Josh Beekman, tackle Casey Bender, receiver Joe Horn (no, not the old one), running back Devin Moore, defensive back Chip Vaughn and quarterback Mike Hartline. Linebacker Cody Glenn and defensive back Mike Newton were waived injured. If they are unclaimed, their rights revert back to Indianapolis.

The Jaguars got a pep talk from Maurice Jones-Drew, who didn’t play, after they fell behind 17-0 in Buffalo Saturday night. "I thought we were pressing a little bit too much,” he told Tania Ganguli. “There were certain things I was seeing that were very uncharacteristic of our offense. I kind of pointed those things out and said we don't practice like this, we don't work like this so why play like it? The guys, they settled down, they played well. Sometimes you just gotta point out certain things and guys understand it.”

The Texans seem optimistic about Arian Foster and his left hamstring. “Everything was positive today,” Gary Kubiak said. “It looks like we’re dealing kind of with the same thing we were dealing with at the start of camp. Hopefully get him back on the rehab train and get him ready for opening day. He’ll be day-to-day. I’ll keep you guys up to date, but we feel like we’re fortunate.”

The Titans plan to get Kenny Britt working with the first team Monday in practice. “The only reason he hasn’t been at times is just because when we got into getting ready for the game mode or the carded-periods, there was no reason for him to take away reps from someone who was actually going to play in the game,” Mike Munchak said. “I think it will be a little bit different the next couple of days where he will get a chance to run with the first group and get some reps and continue that on hopefully for the rest of the season.”

First look: Colts' depth chart

August, 9, 2011
ANDERSON, Ind. – A first look at the Colts’ first unofficial depth chart gives us some nuggets to consider:
Reading the coverage …

Houston Texans

Arian Foster developed a left hamstring issue in his first practice of training camp, says Dale Robertson.

Ben Tate is looking to make up for lost time, says Craig Malveaux.

DeMeco Ryans responded to the accusations that the Texans are soft, writes Robertson. I don't think they are soft, though their mental toughness is a fair question. But putting a non-player in pads and subjecting him to hits isn't the best way to disprove an accusation.

The Texans offense has a challenge going against the new 3-4 in practice, says Robertson.

Indianapolis Colts

Veterans such as Joseph Addai were happy to get involved again, says Mike Chappell.

Austin Collie is not going to dwell on concussions, says Chappell.

Getting to know Devin Moore.

Practice details from Phillip B. Wilson include a solid review of Tommie Harris’ pass-rushing work. It's one snapshot of one period, but still encouraging.

Fili Moala avoided jail time in a drunken-driving conviction.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Clint Session is focused on stopping the run and an MRI gave David Garrard good news, says Tania Ganguli.

As Josh Scobee heads into a contract year, Jack Del Rio’s looking for the kicker to hit 90 percent of his field goals, says Vito Stellino.

Aaron Kampman will play either side, says Ganguli. If he's the best rusher, I say he should be on the right, going against left tackles and coming from quarterbacks' blind sides. Don't overthink this and overcomplicate it.

Blaine Gabbert has the look of the real thing, says Pete Prisco.

The Jaguars have to be happy to be uninvolved in the Tim Tebow circus, says Gene Frenette.

Garrard should not be part of the scrimmage tonight, says Alfie Crow. Agreed.

Tennessee Titans

Akeem Ayers looks to be lining up as the franchise’s first rookie starting linebacker since Eddie Robinson in 1992, says John Glennon. Ayers shoud be out there openig day and I think he will be.

Jordan Babineaux looked comfortable from the start, says Jim Wyatt.

Frank Walker says he’s nasty, according to Glennon.

Derrick Mason is weighing his options.

Colts offer updates on injuries

July, 29, 2011
The Colts just sent out a pre-camp injury report.

They says Peyton Manning's injury "continues to progress, but there is no timetable for his return to unrestricted activity.”

The one item of note I see here is that while most of the key players get updates that say they have “been cleared for full participation,” Austin Collie’s note on concussion recover is worded differently: He’s “been cleared to return for football activities.”

Their updates:

Bye Week Report: Indianapolis Colts

October, 22, 2010
Our 10-point bye report on the Indianapolis Colts:

Major issue: Injuries. We won’t even know a full list until Wednesday. Austin Collie is not going to play a week from Monday night against Houston, and Joseph Addai might not. Antonio Johnson just had knee surgery. Anthony Gonzalez hasn’t played since opening day. Already out long term: Dallas Clark, Bob Sanders, Melvin Bullitt.

Invitation to run: The Colts have run the ball quite well in two games when dared to do so, with great showing from Addai in wins against the Giants and Redskins. Addai is averaging 4.4 yards a carry, his best number since his rookie season when he was the second back. The Colts need to continue to find space for their backs when teams load up with defensive backs.

A major virtue: Against those loaded defensive backfields, Peyton Manning’s shown excellent patience, waiting for the right situations to throw it and accepting those invitations to hand off. This team, at least until healthy, is likely to have to scrap and claw more to win, and he’s perfectly comfortable working to make sure no one out-scraps or out-claws him.

Leaving us wondering: The Colts began the campaign in camp, reminding us how long it takes a pass-rushing end to get comfortable. So Jerry Hughes has appeared in three games and has one special teams tackle on his resume so far. The way injuries have gone, it seems likely they’ll need him on defense at some point.

Second-year jump: Jerraud Powers has built upon a good rookie year and is playing even better this season as the starting right corner. Fili Moala pushed his way past Antonio Johnson into the starting lineup at defensive tackle. But the interior line hasn’t done a whole lot to distinguish itself so far.

Return troubles: Devin Moore is on IR and Kenneth Moore was just cut. Jim Caldwell has promised to work on the return-game issues during the bye. Justin Tryon, Javarris James and Andre Brown look to be options. They could continue to use Powers on punts.

Star performance: Manning’s got 13 touchdowns, two picks and a passer rating of 103.4 despite all the injuries among his supporting cast. Reggie Wayne leads the league with 45 catches. Robert Mathis has 5.5 sacks while Dwight Freeney has three.

Notable numbers: The Colts have just one run of 20 yards or more … Manning is 16th in the NFL on third down with a 85.9 passer rating, but has a league-best 116.5 rating in the fourth quarter … Only four teams have fewer than the Colts 26 penalties … According to ESPN Stats & Info, Indianapolis has dropped 13 balls, but no individual has three … The Colts have run more offensive plays out of three-wide sets than any team in the league.

APB: Kelvin Hayden missed a lot of time last year hurt. He figured to be a boon to the secondary, but Powers has outplayed him. Hayden’s been off his game and is a guy who needs to play better considering the team is working a third-string free safety and is going to see guys like Andre Johnson, DeSean Jackson, Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, Wes Welker and Miles Austin.

What’s to come: The rematch with the Texans is a giant division and conference game. Three more tough ones come after that, with a trip to Philadelphia, a home game against the Bengals and a game at New England.
A fourth-string running back signing isn’t big news. But the addition of Javarris James to the Colts may tell us a bit.

First, the corresponding cut was Tyjuan Hagler. He was brought in as emergency help for a dinged up linebacker corps. The Colts clearly feel better about that situation with Clint Session back in the lineup after a couple missed games with a hamstring injury.

Second, Donald Brown’s injury appears a concern. He was out last week and didn’t practice Wednesday with a hamstring. Dan Dakich of 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis suggested last week that Brown’s injury was a lot more than minor. James could rank behind Joseph Addai and Mike Hart with Brown hurt and Devin Moore, a returner first and foremost, finished for the year.

Third, maybe they just liked the kid. They had to cut him a while back, and have seen him with the Patriots and on the Redskins practice squad since. Bill Polian doesn't sign a lot of players off of other team's practice squads. He feels a bit as if it's poaching. When he does it, it's usually a big combination of need and like.

Final Word: AFC South

September, 10, 2010
NFC Final Word: East | West | North | South AFC: East | West | North | South

Five nuggets of knowledge about Week 1:

Big, but not too big: The Texans have been focused on the Colts quite a bit. Teams tend to spend a good deal of time in an offseason thinking about the team they are chasing in the AFC South. Teams tend to spend a lot of time pondering their opening day opponent. On the rare occasion a franchise is 1-15 all-time against an opponent, it probably thinks about it a lot too. Indianapolis is all three for Houston. Here’s hoping Gary Kubiak has managed things inside the building . The Texans need to have the right balance. It’s a giant game, and it’s just one of 16.

[+] EnlargeAaron Kampman
AP Photo/Margaret BowlesThe Jaguars brought in Aaron Kampman for leadership but will need some of their younger players to step up as well.
Looking for leadership: The young Jaguars imported Aaron Kampman for production and leadership, but they need young guys to emerge to go with Kampman and Maurice Jones-Drew. The Titans let a lot of veteran leadership walk, and also need leaders to emerge. Opening day is a good time for some of those guys on both teams to do something to indicate who they will be.

Winners: Guys who won real training camp position battles will want to perform well in the opener so as to not leave any doubts. So watch Jaguars left guard Justin Smiley, Texans kicker Neil Rackers and right guard Antoine Caldwell (though he will yield at times to Mike Brisiel), Titans right cornerback Jason McCourty or Alterraun Verner (thought they could share time) and Colts return man Devin Moore. Poor play by any of them is likely to create debate -- premature as it might be --- about whether the right guy won.

Tight ends: The Texans have star power that matches or surpasses the Colts. But a team is usually held together by the next tier of players, and that’s where the Texans have sometimes been lacking while it’s a department in which the Colts typically thrive. An example for this game could come at tight end. The Colts will look to their second guy, Brody Eldridge, to help out as run-blocker, pass-protector and target. The Texans expect to limit Owen Daniels in his first action since suffering a torn ACL halfway through the 2009 season. They will need quality work from Joel Dreessen and/or James Casey.

Rookie impact: There’s been a good deal of debate in Jacksonville this week about media attention on Broncos rookie Tim Tebow's return to his hometown. A backup or third quarterback, Jaguars faithful said, was not worthy of the sort of attention being bestowed on his visit. People saying that don’t have quite the understanding of stardom required of the situation -- and he's a star without having done anything in the NFL. I suspect Tebow gets in the game and has at least one chance to score. But the Jaguars are home favorites in a game that won’t be blacked out. The Jaguars need a good game from the No. 10 pick in the draft, Tyson Alualu. A good result from the Jaguars could mean more than 1-0.
Jim Caldwell reacted about as you’d expect to Anthony Gonzalez expressing dismay earlier this week about his role.

Here’s Caldwell Wednesday, according to a team transcript:
On if he was distressed by Gonzalez’ comments on Monday:

“Distressed? No. Probably the best way to sum it up would be this: In that locker room we probably have some of the most competitive men in the world that just have an obsessive desire to be on top. If you don’t have that kind of drive you do not last very long in this league, and I think that is something you have to consider. If there was anything in dealing with miscommunication that is strictly my fault. That is one of the things we have to make certain of that we communicate clearly so guys do understand their role. But we have a 53-man roster and it is a 16 game regular season, and that is a long time. Everybody on the team has a role to play, a significant role at that, and we need all 53 men to win. He is one of those men. Even though he may be disappointed about where he is located, I do not think there’s one guy that is happy about being anywhere but No. 1 at his spot. I think he will handle the disappointment like a professional, like he always has and we will be fine.”

On expecting Gonzalez to be the punt returner on Sunday:

“He has a chance to be. He is certainly a guy that is going to work at it. He has been working at it. He is very capable.”

I have no idea if we will see Gonzalez with the return role. Peyton Manning said he thinks Gonzalez can make some big plays for the Colts in that capacity.

But we could see Devin Moore handling kickoffs and punts.

Indianapolis Colts cutdown analysis

September, 4, 2010
Check here for a full list of Indianapolis’ roster moves.

Biggest surprises: Undrafted running back/returner Devin Moore, undrafted offensive tackle Jeff Linkenbach and undrafted cornerback Brandon King all won roster spots. Defensive tackle Mitch King, who also ranked as a long shot when camp started, survived. So did Gijon Robinson, the primary blocking tight end in recent years who figures to lose snaps to rookie Brody Eldridge. John Chick, a CFL star, lost out to Keyunta Dawson in his bid to be the fourth defensive end.

No-brainers: Two out of three of the return candidates were going, and those turned out to be Brandon James and seventh-rounder Ray Fisher.

What’s next: The team traded an undisclosed pick to Washington for defensive back Justin Tryon, so it appears more settled with cornerback depth. Despite fan desires for a change from Curtis Painter, I’d expect he’s locked in as the backup quarterback to Peyton Manning. The team is currently 10 deep on the offensive and defensive lines, but there doesn’t seem to be a spot screaming out for help at the expense of a lineman right now.

Thoughts on Bengals 30, Colts 28

September, 2, 2010
Some bullet-point thoughts on the Colts’ 30-28 preseason loss to Cincinnati on Thursday night.
  • The Colts sat 32 players.
  • The kick and punt return candidates didn’t seem to do a whole lot to differentiate themselves. Devin Moore took two punts 4 yards and Brandon James took one punt 2 yards. Those two and Ray Fisher all had averages between 17.5 and 25 yards on kickoffs.
  • James and Tom Brandstater certainly had nice statistical nights, linking up for three touchdowns and a 2-point conversion in the final 20 minutes of the game.
  • Indy gave up a 93-yard touchdown run to Cedric Peerman and didn’t get a run longer than Javarris James’ 12-yarder.
  • Even playing a large share of guys who will be cut by Saturday, the Colts played pretty clean. They committed just three penalties worth 30 yards, while Cincinnati had 11 for 99.

Houston Texans

Right guard: It’s third-year man Mike Brisiel, who missed all but the opener last season with an injury, trying to hold off second-year man Antoine Caldwell. I’d think they view Caldwell as having more upside and being more suited to the system, but it seems too close to call still.

Kicker: Kris Brown could be limited with a bit of a foot injury, but it doesn’t sound like it will factor into the decision. He and Neil Rackers have been quite even, so the question becomes does Gary Kubiak stay loyal to Brown or decide a change of scenery will be healthier and go with Rackers?

Outside linebacker: While Brian Cushing sits the first four games to serve his suspension, it's still unclear what the Texans will do. There was a lot of talk about Zac Diles playing strongside while rookie Daryl Sharpton took Diles' spot. Now the local media is talking as if Kevin Bentley is the front-runner.

Indianapolis Colts

Left guard: The offensive line’s been a complete scramble in the preseason because of injuries. Presuming Charlie Johnson is set to return as left tackle for opening day in Houston, this spot looks like the one most up in the air. Tony Ugoh was plugged in at the start of camp, but then wound up at tackle when Johnson was hurt. Jamey Richard could also win it, and if the Colts are being secretive, rookie Jacques McClendon could factor in.

Return man: Three newcomers -- Brandon James, Devin Moore and Ray Fisher -- have all gotten looks in games. Moore had the best results with the ball in his hands. But he's been dinged and the other two have made fielding errors with Fisher booting one against Buffalo and James doing the same at Green Bay. How they stack up in-house right now is unknown, and Thursday could certainly still factor into things.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Right guard: Has Vince Manuwai, an incumbent starter, held on to the one open spot on the line? If so he should play on the right. If not, Uche Nwaneri will probably play on the right with Kynan Forney on the left. It seems Jack Del Rio’s decided, but just isn’t sharing yet.

Safety: Both spots are hardly cemented, and it will be a bigger surprise if the team doesn’t add a safety from waivers than if it does. Anthony Smith looks to lead at strong with Gerald Alexander at free, but they have Sean Considine and Reggie Nelson and even Courtney Greene and Tyron Brackenridge in the mix too. None of them has stepped forward and made a huge push so far.

Tennessee Titans

Right cornerback: Jason McCourty is steadier and faster, rookie Alterraun Verner is a bigger playmaker. Jeff Fisher’s left open the possibility of playing them both, but that’s a difficult juggling act that could slow the progress of both. It’s also a good way for the coach to keep quiet on the starter in the opener until just before kickoff.

Returner: Damian Williams is the guy they’d like to win it, but he’s been a little timid and lost a fumble during a return in Carolina. Another rookie, Marc Mariani, is the primary alternative.

Outside linebacker: While Gerald McRath serves his four-game suspension, who lines up with Stephen Tulloch and Will Witherspoon? Colin Allred would appear the leader, with Jamie Winborn the other possibility. Activating David Thornton off PUP and using him is an outside option. I don’t see it considering his scheduled salary of around $5 million, his propensity for getting hurt and his current physical status.
