INDIANAPOLIS – The month of September is now in the books and the Colts head into October sitting at 3-1.
In the span of four weeks, the Colts offense has seen some large turnover from what the group carried with them into the regular season.
Here’s a look at some burning questions at each offensive positional group at the quarter poll…
So far, those assumptions hold true as Luck is up 10 percentage points in completing 64.1 percent of his passes.
He’s on pace for over 3,600 passing yards (4,374 in 2012) and that’s to be expected with the Colts rushing attack vastly improved.

The role of the tight end in Pep Hamilton’s offense hasn’t been as extensive as it was at Stanford but Fleener’s versatility has been used very well after one month.
How’s the depth along the Colts offensive line?: The Colts offensive line deserves some credit for the physical running nature the offense has relied on in 2013.
While the pass blocking has given up 10 sacks, the line appears to be meshing together after some change in the interior.
The Colts certainly have a pair of bookend tackles in the Boston College tandem of
