We were out there for the joint practice with the Browns today, and there were a few observations that are worth noting.
The Colts hosted one of their two joint practices with the Browns today. We were out there for the entirety of practice. Both teams got some valuable work in. The first team offensive line did not look good, and it’s concerning because of how they looked against the Bills.
Anthony Castonzo looked like he didn’t belong next to Myles Garrett. Several times during individual drills, he got beat badly by Garrett. The rest of the line didn’t get much of a push during team workouts either, which was the most concerning part. Quenton Nelson was not out there though.
The defensive line on the other hand looked really good. Several Colts had great moments along the defensive line. Grover Stewart owned individual drills. Ben Banogu had some good moments as well, and so did Justin Houston. The entire line looked really good.
I spent more time watching the defensive side of the ball today. The defense as a whole looked good in spots, although the secondary could have played better. EJ Speed continues to impress me with his play. He has done a really good job in camp, and could end up starting this year.
Tomorrow I will be spending more time watching the offensive side of the ball. I did see Jacoby Brissett look good on some throws. Chad Kelly did not. T.Y. Hilton had some good battles with Denzel Ward, and both made their fair share of plays.
We will keep you updated on everything that we see tomorrow in the second joint practice session.
