INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts (2-2) on Sunday travel to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) in their 2019 Week 4 matchup Arrowhead 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 Chiefs matchup, with some notes for each unit:
— 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, Hale Hentges
— RB: Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams
» One notable change comes at the running back position, where Jordan Wilkins is now listed as the No. 3 back, while Jonathan Williams is No. 4 (Williams was No. 3 and Wilkins No. 4 previously). Wide receiver Ashton Dulin, who was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad late last week, also appears for the first time.
» With T.Y. Hilton (quad) inactive Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, the Colts saw added snaps for Deon Cain (57 snaps), Chester Rogers (55 snaps), Zach Pascal (53 snaps) and Parris Campbell (49 snaps). Dulin played three offensive snaps in his NFL debut and also logged 13 special teams snaps and his first-career special teams tackle.
» With Marlon Mack dealing with an ankle injury throughout the second half of last Sunday's game, we saw an uptick in snaps for Nyheim Hines (35 snaps) and Jordan Wilkins (16 snaps).
— DE: Justin Houston, Kemoko Turay
— NT: Margus Hunt, Grover Stewart
— UT: Denico Autry, Tyquan Lewis, Jihad Ward
— DE: Jabaal Sheard, Al-Quadin Muhammad, Ben Banogu
— WLB: Darius Leonard, E.J. Speed
— MLB: Anthony Walker, Bobby Okereke
— SAM: Matthew Adams, Zaire Franklin
— CB: Kenny Moore II, Quincy Wilson
— FS: Malik Hooker, George Odum, Rolan Milligan
— SS: Clayton Geathers, Khari Willis
— CB: Pierre Desir, Rock Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III
» No major differences this week compared to last week; cornerback Ryan Lewis, who appeared previously, was waived by the team late last week to make room for wide receiver Ashton Dulin.
» We saw some interesting movement along the defensive line last Sunday against the Raiders. Most notably, the Colts saw the return of defensive end Jabaal Sheard, who underwent a minor knee procedure during training camp and missed the first three games of the season; Sheard played about 51 percent of the defensive snaps against Oakland, finishing with four tackles.
» In the defensive interior, Grover Stewart got his first start of the season and logged 40 snaps; Margus Hunt, who had been the starter at that defensive tackle spot, played 21 snaps.
» At cornerback, with Pierre Desir working his way back from a hamstring injury that kept him out of two days of practice last week, the Colts saw Rock Ya-Sin (67 snaps) and Kenny Moore II (65 snaps) get a majority of the snaps at the position. Desir ended up playing 23 defensive snaps.
— P: Rigoberto Sanchez
— PK: Adam Vinatieri
— H: Rigoberto Sanchez
— LS: Luke Rhodes
— KR: Parris Campbell, Nyheim Hines
— PR: Chester Rogers, Nyheim Hines
» No differences this week compared to last week.
» After top kickoff returner Parris Campbell suffered an abdominal injury during last Sunday's game against the Raiders, the Colts utilized Zach Pascal in that role the rest of the game; he had one return for 18 yards. Pascal served as the Colts' primary kickoff returner last year, and logged 13 returns for 273 yards (21 yards per return).
