The biggest problem besides the injuries has been the play of the offensive line. The starters have looked extremely poor during camp and both preseason games. Even though all of the starters have yet to play together, they should still be better than what they have been.
Same thing with the backups. None of them have looked good either. Because of this poor play, the running game has been poor as well. Because of the lack of holes being opened, the team hasn’t been able to get anything going on that front.
This has to change very quickly. That’s especially true if Luck isn’t available for week 1. Jacoby Brissett will need all the time he can get it if he is out there. Brissett did look good against the Browns despite of the poor effort from the line, but that play has to improve.
There aren’t really any quick fixes as far as the backups are concerned. They even re-signed Evan Boehm to improve that depth, but he has had his problems too. None of the starters better get injured. Even though they have looked bad, they’re still way better than the backups.
