INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts (6-7) on Monday travel to take on the New Orleans Saints (10-3) in their 2019 Week 15 matchup at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome — 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 Saints matchup, with some notes for each unit:
— WR: T.Y. Hilton, Marcus Johnson
— 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, Ross Travis
— WR: Zach Pascal, Ashton Dulin, Chad Williams
— QB: Jacoby Brissett, Brian Hoyer, Chad Kelly
— TE: Mo Alie-Cox
— RB: Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams
» Today's unofficial depth chart is a little light for the Colts' 53-man roster, which as of right now only has 51 players listed after wide receiver Parris Campbell and kicker Adam Vinatieri were placed on injured reserve on Monday. Head coach Frank Reich said on Monday that the team will address those open spots "in the next couple days."
» With T.Y. Hilton continuing to deal with a calf injury, Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson continue to step up at the wide receiver position. They combined for eight receptions for 179 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Pascal played all 63 offensive snaps, while Johnson lined up for 56 offensive snaps (89 percent). Look for that trend to continue down the stretch.
» With Marlon Mack officially back Sunday against the Buccaneers after missing two games with a fractured right hand, we actually saw Nyheim Hines take the most snaps at running back in that contest, with 35 (56 percent). Mack played 26 snaps (41 percent), while Jordan Wilkins played nine offensive snaps (14 percent). Jonathan Williams played five snaps, all on special teams.

» With Kenny Moore II missing Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with an ankle injury, safety Rolan Milligan got a majority of the snaps playing in Moore II's place at nickel cornerback; Milligan played 50 defensive snaps in all in the game, 49 of which from the slot corner spot, according to Pro Football Focus.
» Grover Stewart had his most extensive defensive action of the year Sunday against the Buccaneers, with a season-high 58 snaps at defensive tackle; he finished with two total tackles.

» For the first time since the 2005 season, kicker Adam Vinatieri does not appear on the Colts' unofficial depth chart. Vinatieri on Monday was placed on injured reserve with a left knee injury, ending his 24th NFL season with three games to go. Rookie Chase McLaughlin, who converted 2-of-3 field goal attempts and all three extra-point tries in his Colts debut Sunday against the Buccaneers, now gets the opportunity to finish out the year in Indy.
