4 players who’ve proven they aren’t in Colts’ future
The Indianapolis Colts have had some underwhelming performances so far this season. Because of that, some players are unlikely to return.
When your team is 5-5, that usually means that some players just aren’t meeting expectations; that’s the position the Indianapolis Colts find themselves in. After getting off to a 1-4 start, the Colts have battled back to a .500 record with seven games to go, but not everyone has improved their play.
Indianapolis has been in tough games and has been scraping by with victories. Every week, fans have come to be prepared for multiple poor performances from the same culprits.
For some, the poor play may be attributed to injuries; for others, it’s just ineptitude. Either way, the film they are putting together will likely be their last with Indianapolis.
Here’s a look at four players who are proving they won’t be in the Colts’ future:
4. Colts safety Andrew Sendejo
Andrew Sendejo was signed to a one-year deal after Indianapolis’ first game, and despite being the starting free safety, it’s likely that he will be one and done.
The 34-year-old veteran has been underwhelming, to say the least. Sendejo was once a solid safety during his time with the Minnesota Vikings, but he has struggled in every aspect this year. He occasionally comes downhill and makes a nice tackle, but that’s it.
Watch any Colts game and Sendejo is frequently seen giving up big passing plays. The reason he remains as a starter currently is because of Julian Blackmon’s torn Achilles. With Blackmon likely to be healthy in time for next season, don’t expect to see Sendejo re-sign with Indianapolis.
