INDIANAPOLIS – Back from injury, Donte Moncrief has wasted little time inching his way up the Colts record book.
Moncrief has snagged a touchdown pass in four straight games---the first Colt to do that since Austin Collie in 2010.
The franchise record for consecutive games with a touchdown reception is 7, set by Raymond Berry in 1959-60.
When Moncrief was lost for a month and a half after injuring his shoulder in Week Two, Chuck Pagano said the skillset of the 6-2, 220-pound wideout was going to be missed.
The excitement of Moncrief returning prior to the Chiefs game on Oct. 30 was heard loud and clear.
"He is a dynamic player and an incredibly good receiver," quarterback Andrew Luck said when Moncrief returned a month ago. "We welcome him back with open arms."
T.Y. Hilton said he might have been happier than Moncrief when No. 10 came back.
"I can't wait to have him out there, have his excitement out there making plays," Hilton said in late October. "I know once he is out there he is going to feel very comfortable."
Moncrief has looked pretty comfortable, especially when the field shrinks.
The four touchdowns Moncrief has had since returning from his fractured scapula have all come inside the 10-yard line.
On the season, Moncrief has 24 catches for 251 yards and five touchdowns in six games played.
The only game in which has Moncrief played this season but didn't score was against Denver, when the injured shoulder took him off the field after just nine plays.
