We were out there once again for Colts camp and this was the last day of camp. Several things happened today, and most were not good.
The Colts were able to host the Browns for the second consecutive day at Grand Park today. Yesterday, I spent more time watching the defense. Today, I spent much more time looking at the offense, and what I saw was not a pretty sight.
The biggest thing that happened was Daurice Fountain‘s injury. Fountain dislocated and fractured his ankle during practice today. As soon as it happened, both the Browns players and the Colts players took off their helmets and took a knee. Several said prayers for him.
This injury is devastating for Fountain. He had played really well in camp and had played himself onto this roster in my opinion. But now his season is over, and he has a long road to recovery. This also opens up the receiver competitions even more.
As far as the play on the field is concerned, the offense in general did not look good. Fountain was actually one of the few bright spots today. Brissett still looks apprehensive and does not look sharp. The entire first team offense doesn’t look good, even the offensive line.
On defense, they looked a little better than they did yesterday. Khari Willis jumped in front of a Baker Mayfield pass for an interception in the end zone. The defensive line still looks pretty good, and they might be the sharpest unit on the entire team right now.
There were a lot of extra curricular activities on the field today too. There were several scraps between the two teams, especially at the end of practice. These teams are clearly ready to do battle on Saturday for their second preseason game of the year.
The offense needs to get themselves together in a hurry. If they don’t, this could be a bad start to the year. And that’s whether Andrew Luck plays or not.
