The Colts play the hapless Dolphins in Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Even if they have to play a backup quarterback, is there reason for concern?
The Colts have a bunch of injuries that are converging on them right now. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they play the Dolphins this week, who have only won one game. Even with all of those injuries, should the Colts be concerned about losing a second straight game?
In a word, no. Even though Miami is coming off their first win of the season, they won that game over the somehow worse Jets. Even if Jacoby Brissett can’t play on Sunday, Brian Hoyer should be able to to still lead the team to a victory. But there are still some concerns.
The concerns come from the offensive side of the ball. There aren’t a whole lot of healthy playmakers left on this team. Marlon Mack is the lone guy who can be effiecient and make a lot of plays in the offense right now. Only having one guy who is a threat is rough.
Again, playing Miami should help Mack play even better and make some plays. Hopefully they won’t need much more than him, because they don’t have much more than him on the roster that are healthy right now. But even a group without great offensive playmakers should be enough to win against the Dolphins.
It would be a massive upset to see Miami come into Indy and win this game, even if the Colts don’t put Brissett out there. There shouldn’t be too concerns with this game.
