Colts Notebook: Cox hopes to work into cornerback competition

(Continued)

"If they want me here, it'll happen," Cox said. "I just put it all in God's hands. At the end of the day, it's their decision, not mine. I just do my job."

MEWHORT MAY NOT BE ON THE MOVE

Versatility is among second-round pick Jack Mewhort's greatest strengths. But Pagano wants to make sure he doesn't overload the rookie offensive lineman.

The former Ohio State All-American has worked out at both left guard and center this weekend, but that looks to be the extent of the positions he will be asked to learn.

"You don't want to move him so much where he's not growing mentally as a football player, or physically," Pagano said. "He's a smart guy, and he's got position flexibility as we all know. But we want to be prudent on our part and not take advantage of that, so to speak, and have him all over the place. But he's handling what we're throwing at him. He's handling it pretty good right now."

FILLING A NEED?

Nose tackle is among the most important positions in Pagano's hybrid 3-4 scheme. But 23-year-old Josh Chapman is the only returning player listed on the roster at the position.

Last year's starter, Aubrayo Franklin, was not re-signed, and the team also let go of reserve Martin Tevaseu. That could open a door for Zach Kerr — 6-foot-2, 310-pounder who went undrafted out of Delaware and possesses some of the traits Pagano looks for in the anchor of his defensive line.

"Yeah, you know, big, fast, smart, got great feet, got great quickness," Pagano said. "Again, you can see the energy and passion that he has for football, and he knows the game inside and out. So, yeah, we're excited to have Zach here."

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
