INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts and linebacker Pat Angerer spoke this week about how he wasn’t ever going to get back to himself this season.
He broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in the preseason and missed the first five games. We speculated about the difficulty his return would present the team as Jerrell Freeman and Kavell Conner played well in his absence. But Angerer's been playing only off the bench since then.
Today, however, he is starting in place of Conner. We’ll have to see how much it means when we see how the linebackers are deployed throughout the game.
There are no big surprises on the inactive lists.
