The Colts defense has stepped up after a rough first

  • half on Sunday and that put the team’s offense in position to score its first points of the afternoon.Rookie linebacker Darius Leonard forced and recovered a fumble by Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins with just over a minute to play in the third quarter. That gave the Colts the ball on Kansas City’s 20-yard-line [url=https://www.coltsfanshop.com/customized]Indianapolis Colts Customized Jerseys[/url] , but they wouldn’t make anything good happen with the prime location.Andrew Luck was incomplete on first down and Dee Ford stripped the Colts quarterback of the ball on second down. Justin Houston, who has two sacks on Saturday, recovered the football to keep the Chiefs up 24-7 and a miserable day continued for the Colts offense.Luck is now 12-of-20 for 121 yards and the Colts offensive line has looked nothing like the strength it was while the Colts were winning 10 of their last 11 games. They have 15 minutes left to try to change that around, but there’s little sign that the run will last past Saturday. Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton has played only once in the past six games. A nagging calf injury has limited him to 25 offensive snaps and three catches for 18 yards since being injured in a Week Eight win over the Broncos.He may or may not play again this week, but Hilton plans on playing again this season.Hilton was adamant Wednesday that injured reserve was “never in question” and won’t be an option despite the team’s slim playoff hopes.“I would never quit on my team,” Hilton said, via Mike Wells of ESPN. “I signed up for 16 games. Some guys may shut it down and call it quits. I don’t do that.” The Colts re-signed receiver Dontrelle Inman earlier this week [url=https://www.coltsfanshop.com/t-shirts]Indianapolis Colts T-Shirts[/url] , with a season-long rash of injuries at the position. In addition to Hilton’s nagging calf issue, Devin Funchess, Chester Rogers, Parris Campbell all are on injured reserve.“It’s crazy,” Inman said, via Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com. “You walk into the training room, and it’s like [url=https://www.coltsfanshop.com/hats]https://www.coltsfanshop.com/hats[/url] , ‘Is this our new meeting room?’ 1, 2, 3, 4. . . .”
