INDIANAPOLIS – Lost in the news of linebacker Pat Angerer going on injured reserve because of a knee injury was that the Indianapolis Colts signed running back Shaun Draughn to take Angerer’s spot on the roster.
If that’s the case, Trent Richardson, who rushed for 64 yards against the Texans, would move back into the starting lineup and Tashard Choice, whom the Colts signed last week after Chris Rainey was lost for the season, would likely back him up against Kansas City this weekend.
“Really don’t have a choice,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday when asked about putting Choice in the rotation. “I wouldn’t have any regardless, but it’s really all we have. He’s going to have to. And I like what he did [Sunday] coming in and had the good return on the kickoff return and got some carries in the back. He’s a smart guy, he’s a tough guy, he’s ran the ball before, so I have no problems.”
