INDIANAPOLIS – Coming into 2014, the talk about the Colts safeties focused on who would line up next to LaRon Landry.
Now the question, for the next four weeks, becomes who will be starting for Landry?
On Monday afternoon, it was announced that Landry has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.
The Colts currently have four safeties on the team's 53-man roster.
Veteran Mike Adams has started all four games in 2014 alongside Landry and has been a durable piece at the backend of the Colts defense.
Colt Anderson (four starts in 51 career games) and Sergio Brown (three starts in 59 career game) are the backups, with virtually all their contributions in 2014 coming on special teams.
Anderson and Brown have played seven and 15 defensive snaps respectively, compared to the 162 logged by Landry after four weeks.
With Landry missing a major part of the offseason, Anderson and Brown have gotten their fair share of first team reps.
The Colts also signed safety Dewey McDonald to the team's active roster on Monday afternoon. McDonald is an undrafted free agent, who has spent the entire season on the Colts practice squad.
The suspension for Landry will have him miss the next 4 weeks (Baltimore, @ Houston, Cincinnati and @ Pittsburgh. He will return to the Colts following the Pittsburgh game, prior to the team traveling to take on the Giants for Monday Night Football on November 3.
