INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts (3-2) on Sunday play host to the Houston Texans (4-2) in their 2019 Week 7 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 Texans 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
— RB: Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams
» The only difference this week coming off the bye week is at the second tight end spot, where Eric Ebron is the only player listed. This reflects the move made to waive tight end Hale Hentges prior to the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs in order to make room for cornerback Shakial Taylor; the undrafted rookie Hentges was eventually claimed by the Washington Redskins and made his NFL debut this past Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
— 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
» With Kemoko Turay being placed on injured reserve Monday after suffering a broken and dislocated ankle Week 5 against the Chiefs, there's a little bit of shuffling at defensive end, as rookie Ben Banogu goes from the third player listed at the second DE spot to the second player listed under starter Justin Houston at the first spot.
» This week's unofficial depth chart is the first you'll see the team's two new defensive tackles: Carl Davis is listed as the third nose tackle, while Trevon Coley is listed as the third under tackle.
» Shakial Taylor now appears as the third player at the first cornerback spot after the undrafted rookie made his NFL debut Week 5 against the Chiefs.
— 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.
» Zach Pascal took over kick returner duties with Parris Campbell (abdominal injury) out against the Chiefs. Head coach Frank Reich said this week Campbell, who underwent a procedure, continues to make progress, but wasn't sure he'd be able to return to practice this week.
