The Indianapolis Colts wrapped up their first preseason game last weekend at Philadelphia. With that said, let's take a look at an updated 53-man roster projection:
Note: Hasselbeck didn't play well against the Eagles, but he's a veteran with 17 years of NFL experience. Bennett threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.
Note: Tipton only averaged 2.1 yards a carry against the Eagles, but the Colts know what they'll get out of him. The team is still waiting for Ballard to play in a game for the first time in almost two years. The front office and coaching staff can only wait for so long.
Note: McGrath is a player to keep an eye on. He's gotten a lot of praise in training camp so far and he had two receptions for 19 yards against Philly.
Note: Bray didn't help himself by fumbling a punt Sunday. But he can surpass Brown if he bounces back and looks like the player who turned a lot of heads during the first two weeks of training camp.
Offensive linemen (10): Anthony Castonzo, Jack Mewhort, Khaled Holmes, Jonotthan Harrison, Todd Herremans, Lance Louis, Hugh Thornton, Joe Reitz, David Arkin, Denzelle Good (cut: Will Corbin, Donald Thomas, Tyler Hoover, Ulrick John, Brandon Vitabile)
Note: Like Ballard, the Colts don't know what Thomas will be able to give them because he hasn't played in a game in almost two years because of injuries. He's still on the physically unable to perform list.
Note: Anderson only had one tackle against the Eagles, but he made several impressive moves that didn't show up in the final stat sheet. The coaching definitely noticed in the film review.
Linebackers (9): Trent Cole, Erik Walden, Robert Mathis, Bjoern Werner, Jonathan Newsome, D'Qwell Jackson, Jerrell Freeman, Nate Irving, Henoc Muamba (cut: Cam Johnson, Daniel Adongo, Amarlo Herrera, Zack Hodges, Justin Shirk, Junior Sylvestre)
Wells: Herrara, the team's sixth-round pick, will be in the mix for a roster spot after getting an interception Sunday. Now it's up to him to continue climbing the ladder because the Colts need help at the backup inside linebacker position.
Note: Price didn't do much to help his cause after starting in place of the injured Davis and Butler.
Note: Anderson will remain in position to make the roster based off his special teams skills.
Note: McAfee averaged 56 yards a punt on his eight punts.
