Colts ‘Two-Deep’ Depth Chart
Defensive End: Kendall Langford, *Henry Anderson
The Colts defensive ends may actually comprise one of the team’s strongest positions, assuming promising 2nd-year pro Henry Anderson can fully recover from a season-ending torn ACL suffered near midseason of last year.
The Stanford rookie defensive end was arguably the team’s best defensive lineman and a premier run-stuffer before suffering the significant knee injury, starting in the team’s first 9 games. He could be a building block for years to come along the defensive line, but may not be ready for the team’s regular season opener–initially beginning the season on PUP as he finishes his rehabilitation.
However, regardless of Anderson’s status, the Colts already have a solid veteran starter, Kendall Langford, who was consistently the team’s best defensive lineman all season and tied for the team high with 7 sacks. Langford made all 16 starts for the Colts, and it’s an easy bet to pencil him in as a starter at defensive end again.
