2019-depth-chart-broncos

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts (4-2) on Sunday play host to the Denver Broncos (2-5) in their 2019 Week 8 matchup Lucas Oil Stadium — and, accordingly, it’s time to look at the team’s unofficial depth chart for the game.

Here is a position-by-position look for the Broncos matchup, with some notes for each unit:

OFFENSE

— WR: T.Y. Hilton, Deon Cain, Parris Campbell

— LT: Anthony Castonzo, Le’Raven Clark

— LG: Quenton Nelson, Joe Haeg

— C: Ryan Kelly, Josh Andrews

— RG: Mark Glowinski, Joe Haeg

— RT: Braden Smith, Le’Raven Clark

— TE: Jack Doyle, Mo Alie-Cox

— WR: Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Ashton Dulin

— QB: Jacoby Brissett, Brian Hoyer

— TE: Eric Ebron

— RB: Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams

Notes:

» No differences this week compared to last week.

» For those keeping track, the Colts' five starting offensive linemen are yet to miss a single snap through six games this season. That trend continued in last Sunday's victory over the Houston Texans, but with a little caveat: Quenton Nelson, usually, of course, the starting left guard, lined up at fullback for one play early in the third quarter. On that play — a 3rd and 1 attempt from the Houston 4-yard line — Nelson actually reported as an eligible receiver and ran a route to the end zone, but quarterback Jacoby Brissett opted to throw the ball tight end Eric Ebron's way. Ebron made a sensational one-handed grab and kept both feet in for the touchdown.

DEFENSE

— DE: Justin Houston, Ben Banogu

— NT: Margus Hunt, Grover Stewart, Carl Davis

— UT: Denico Autry, Tyquan Lewis, Trevon Coley

— DE: Jabaal Sheard, Al-Quadin Muhammad

— WLB: Darius Leonard, E.J. Speed

— MLB: Anthony Walker, Bobby Okereke

— SAM: Matthew Adams, Zaire Franklin

— CB: Kenny Moore II, Quincy Wilson, Shakial Taylor

— FS: Malik Hooker, George Odum, Rolan Milligan

— SS: Clayton Geathers, Khari Willis

— CB: Pierre Desir, Rock Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III

Notes:

» No differences this week compared to last week.

» Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus mixed it up quite a bit last Sunday against the Texans, opting at times for more speed on the field against elusive Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson. Accordingly, we saw an uptick in defensive snaps for several players, including cornerback Shakial Taylor (32 snaps) and safety Rolan Milligan (27 snaps).

» With pass rusher Kemoko Turay being placed on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs, we saw Al-Quadin Muhammad (35 total snaps) seem to get a bulk of the opportunities in Turay's place last Sunday against the Texans. Rookie Ben Banogu also played 13 snaps in the game.

SPECIALISTS

— P: Rigoberto Sanchez

— PK: Adam Vinatieri

— H: Rigoberto Sanchez

— LS: Luke Rhodes

— KR: Parris Campbell, Nyheim Hines

— PR: Chester Rogers, Nyheim Hines

Notes:

» No differences this week compared to last week.

» Chester Rogers continues to excel as the Colts' punt returner. He ranks fourth in the NFL with a 10.3-yard punt return average, which equates to one fewer first down the offense has to get on its ensuing drive.
