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.”

    Early in Thursday night's practice at Anderson University, Colts tight end Coby Fleener found himself running free behind the defense in 11-on-11 drills. Seconds later, a laser-like pass arrived just past his shoulder, and he had a free run to the end zone. A crowd of 7,540 erupted inside Macholtz Stadium, adding a unique energy to the lone evening practice of this year's training camp.

  • 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 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.
