Two of the Indianapolis Colts’ highest profile defenders will be back on the field Saturday night against the Giants.
Per the Indianapolis Star, Coach Chuck Pagano said that he expects both safety LaRon Landry and cornerback Vontae Davis on the field in the second preseason game at home.
“It looks like [Davis] and LaRon are going to get some playing time on Saturday, which is a great thing. How many reps that is, I don’t know.”
This comes as good news to Colts fans who haven’t been able to see much of Davis or Landry since January. Both players have been dealing with lower body injuries, sidelining them against the Jets and in practice. While Davis has been practicing quite a bit and was held out for precautionary reasons, Landry hasn’t been participating in many of the Colts practicing besides standing and listening.
With both players back in the lineup, fans can expect to see the starting 11 that the Colts will implement Week 1 against the Broncos, barring any other setbacks or rest days. Whether Robert Mathis will play is still undetermined as Bjoern Werner continues to get most of the No. 1 reps at outside linebacker.
Coach Pagano also told the Star that T.Y. Hilton is expected to play on Saturday despite sitting out two consecutive practices this week.
The offense will also get more looks on Saturday, as Pagano has expanded the role for Andrew Luck and the first-string guys to a full quarter instead of just one possession.
