Indianapolis Colts Connections: Week 3 vs. Cleveland Browns


Each week we like to look at some players or coaches who have been on both sides of this week’s matchup between the Colts and Browns.

Tackle Zach Banner

Zach Banner‘s time in Indianapolis was incredibly brief as he never made the 53-man roster after being drafted in the fourth round by general manager Chris Ballard.

Cleveland signed Banner to add to their multitude of young players to see if he could develop into a possible starter down the line.

Defensive Tackle T.Y. McGill

T.Y. McGill played for the Colts for the past two seasons, and he was a decent interior pass rusher racking up 5 sacks over 25 games with Indianapolis.

McGill was cut at the end of training camp after the Colts invested heavily in upgrading the defensive tackle position this offseason.

Defensive End Jabaal Sheard

The Browns selected Jabaal Sheard in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and he played his first four seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Patriots.

Sheard sacked the quarterback 23 times with Cleveland, and the Colts are hoping he can bring an even higher amount of production to Indianapolis.

Running Back Robert Turbin

Turbin has bounced around a bit during his six-year career, and one of those stops was a three-game stint in Cleveland. He joined the Colts last season, but his backup running back job is currently being challenged by rookie Marlon Mack.

Outside Linebacker Barkevious Mingo

Mingo is one of the many draft busts Browns fans have endured over the years as he only put up 7 sacks in three seasons after being selected with the sixth overall pick in 2013.

Mingo is looking to resuscitate his career in Indianapolis, and the Colts could use his athleticism off the edge.
