Expect to see a lot of Josh Ferguson
Head coach Chuck Pagano has made it clear that the starting offense and defense will see much more action this week against the Baltimore Ravens and veteran QB Andrew Luck will open the game and is expected to play the entire first quarter. He did not play in the win against the Bills last week.
While RB Stephen Morris had a good game in limited touches (3 carries, 19 yards) the Colts, expect veteran Frank Gore to open the game but play just a series or two. Expect rookie Josh Ferguson, whom have been intrigued with since before the draft and leading to his drafting, to play many more minutes Saturday.
“It was good just to get out there and play some ball again,” Ferguson said of his NFL debut. “It was a great learning experience and I’m just excited for the next one.”
“Josh has done a great job,” said quarterback Scott Tolzien.

Luck expected to take limited snaps

The team will return home for the second preseason game against the Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

After getting blown off the field last week in a 44-20 blowout by their AFC rival Buffalo Bills, the Colts responded with a 20-12 win over the New York Giants.
Second year quarterback Andrew Luck was 9-13 for 177 yards and a 133.7 while his backup Matt Hasselbeck finished 6-10 for 43 yards.
The Giants were in some disarray as the offense was limited to only four field goals. Even head coach Tom Coughlin was out of character getting flagged a 15-yard penalty for continually stepping out of the coaches box.
”I was wrong,” Coughlin said. ”It wasn’t a smart thing but the frustration in terms of how we played was there and I am disappointed in tonight’s game.”
The Colts next face the Cleveland Browns at home. Tickets are still available.
