I heard he handled Samson Satele in practice. Does anyone know if he is playing at all Sunday?

I don't think he has been activated yet. He is practicing under the PUP rules but I don't think they have put him on the active roster. Keep in mind he's a rookie with no camp experience and no OTAs. So even if he has natural talent (which I think he does) it'll take him a little time to get into the flow of things which is why I don't think he will be officially activated till they have too. He might be the answers to our prayers next year or something but I don't think he will be this year. He might make an impact but I don't think he's going to be the superstar some are hoping he will be day one.

@pwilson24: RT @philrichards6: #Colts Arians: On NT Josh Chapman -- not out of question he'd be added to roster next week but probably not be active.

I think, realistically, the earliest chance for him to play meaningful snaps is the New England game since it's coming off a long week's rest. There's a chance we give him a couple snaps vs Jax to get his feet wet.

If he is dressed on Sunday, there should be no reason not not give him some snaps, especially once the game is in the bag (for either team). If it goes down to the wire, then unlikley he plays.

What's your source? I know Satele said good things about him, but I never read that Chapman 'handled' him.

I hope people don't get their expectations up too high about this kid. That's a hard position for a rookie to learn. It took Mount Cody about a season before he was considered effective and he was a higher rated prospect from the same system.

I think Chapman is our future NT, but I don't expect miracles from him if/when he plays this year.

When Pagano speaks of building "the monster", Chapman needs to be the lead monster. Judging from what he was able to do in Bama on one leg, plus his interviews and what the buzz is about him, we have every right to be excited about this guy. Not everyone will admit it, but we all hope(expect) he is more than just a good rotational player. That he is going to be special. I know I do.

I think he may be referring to article about him in the indy star. There is a thread on the forum about it. http://forums.colts....-colts-dt-josh-chapman-realizes-gain-through-pain/

Colts teammates are only now getting their first feel.

Defensive end Cory Redding describes Chapman as having "thighs on his arms."

Center Samson Satele lined up across from Chapman for the first time last week.

"Man is a load, man, and he knows how to move," Satele said. "I don't know how he was in college, but he's pretty darn good out here."

he is practicing under the rule, and he is not practicing at 100 percent. he was told to throttle down his practice effort and that also means he WILL NOT be playing anytime soon. They don't want to rush him back at his current weight, which is VERY large even though he is a VERY LARGE individual sporting arms the size of thighs. PLAY? NO WAY!

I think he has a very good chance of playing against the Jaguars. The coaches are throwing too many hints out to believe otherwise.

We don't need him to be a superstar just a 2 down play who can make an impact

He has not been activated. The Colts have to make a decision next week to moving him to the active roster or sit him for the rest of the season. Not possible for him to play Sunday and I doubt he will play at Jacksonville. New England will be the first real chance.

and that's fine but if you listen to some talk about here I think some have the hope he's going to be the answers to our DT prayers. As a rookie who has had zero camp and zero OTAs, and zero action it's going to a little while for him to get into the flow of things. Chapman might end up being the answer to our prayers down the road but I don't think he will be right away. I would even think that the impact he'll have right away will be a small one and I just don't want to see people going off on what a let down he has been because he didn't meet their unrealistic expectations day one like we have at times with other rookies around here.

I don't know if he handled Satele but he did handle one of our 345lbs guards (someone can figure out which one).

I personally cannot wait til this kid gets on the field. I've been screaming DT for 10+ years and now we may well have a good one that'll be here for awhile.

It was Hayworth Hicks.

Chapman will come back when he is ready.

Mookie has done a decent job so far, even though that is not his natural position.

Once Chapman is healthy and ready, he will start

    • Ok, that's fine. But can you enlighten me on why you think he will be fine. What have you seen that makes you think he's better than Butler? Especially since he's rarely been on field. Hopefully he will be as good as Revis but he needs to be playing at some point.
    • Lets not get to carried away while we'v seen some good things its just the preseason its hard to judge the play on the field in these glorified practices lets wait until the regular season starts against starters stupid penalties need to be addressed that stood out glaringly , I'm hopeful & I believe this year will be much better but we are just getting started with 2 preseason games in the books we'v seen flashs I can agree with that but the sizzle can fizzle I need to see more consistency for 60 minutes before I buy what your selling .
    • Why did John Spanos, the President Of Football Operations in San Diego, even release this statement publicly about Bosa?    http://www.profootballrumors.com/2016/08/john-spanos-joey-bosas-holdout-absolutely-asinine   Why feel the need to air your dirty laundry about negotiations that broke down or never came to mutual fruition? It's so amateur & unprofessional IMO. Just say to your fan base that Bosa rejected your new offer, doesn't wanna play here, & move on.    Spanos looks like a darn cry baby. Grow the hades up John Jesus. If I was a free agent, I'd never wanna play for the Chargers since they put their grievances in the public eye if they are ticked off in the front office. Private player contract negotiations need to stay behind closed doors. Who cares if Bosa hasn't signed his rookie deal? He's not costing San Diego any money right now. Okay, your pick was a wash big deal. It happens all the time. Just cut your loses & turn the page John.    What's asinine John is your childish, unprofessional behavior in this case John. 
    • The MIGHTY football God Belichick has once again struck fear into the Colts fans with a wave of a hand in the media. May God have mercy on our football souls.
    • I agree Bosa is not a Colt, if he were he would already be signed .
