What went right: Herron was eventually brought back to the Colts? That might be about it. Herron was given just 14 carries in the final six weeks of the season. He finished fourth on the team in rushing with just 42 yards. Nothing really went well for any running back on the roster outside of a meh season for Gore.
What went wrong: Using Herron in the final preseason game as a return man only to see him get injured. Yes, the Colts needed to figure out who should be returning kickoffs (its Quan Bray), but using your backup running back to fill that role? Bad idea.
Offseason expectations: The Colts should bring Herron into camp. He’s comfortable with the team, healthy, and has shown that he can be the kind of back the team needs. Herron was great last season in the playoffs and will likely get a shot to make the final roster. He would have been a lock to back up Gore last year if not for the injury in the final preseason game.
