Colts Notebook: Colts waiting for word on Angerer

INDIANAPOLIS — Not all the news was good for the Indianapolis Colts coming out of Sunday’s 38-3 preseason dismantling of the St. Louis Rams. Four players left the game with injuries — running back Delone Carter, linebacker Scott Lutrus, left guard Mike McGlynn and linebacker Pat Angerer. Angerer was wearing a boot after the game, and head coach Chuck Pagano said the team is waiting for further word on his status after a scheduled

MRI today.

“We’re hoping and praying it’s nothing too serious,” Pagano said. “But, again, once we get the MRI results back, then we’ll know more.”

HUGHES COMES UP HUGE: Maligned third-year outside linebacker Jerry Hughes emerged as one of Sunday’s more pleasant surprises.

Making the switch from defensive end in the Colts’ old 4-3 scheme to linebacker in the new hybrid 3-4 defense, Hughes responded with a pair of third-down sacks. On the first, he came nearly unblocked up the middle and ran through St. Louis starter Sam Bradford.

“I was kind of shocked because I came free on that,” Hughes said. “It definitely threw me off. I thought they were doing a trick play or something. I thought I messed up somewhere.”

DE-FENSE, DE-FENSE: After allowing the Rams to drive across midfield and into their territory on the opening drive, the Colts defense became something of a brick wall Sunday.

Indianapolis allowed just 215 total yards and did not allow St. Louis to reach the end zone. The Colts also forced two fumbles, recovering one, and intercepted the Rams on their final possession of the game.

“Everybody was hungry so everybody came to play,” outside linebacker Robert Mathis said. “Everybody was tired of hitting on each other and was ready to hit somebody else. We came out full of excitement and ready to play. That’s good for our psyche right now.”
