DE Cassius Marsh signed to practice squad


Recommended Posts

Not sure I understand the move, but OK. Wonder if they are thinking SAM and/or DE.

 

From everything I've read, flashes some, but doesn't really have the power and speed for DE. High motor guy though.

I realize its a highlight reel, but the dude plays very physical, and brings some violence with the hit.  Looks very active and high-motor.  Could-be a special teams gem at the very least.

from what i read, high motor, over emotional, but not fast or strong enough to hold up as a DE. 

not sure what to think given the recent pick up of Carter. maybe they see him as a SAM/DE hybrid.

Seems like a weird move to make right before Turay's set to return.

 

Who said Turay is returning? Everything I've heard, or rather haven't heard, tells me Turay probably is not all that close to returning.

Hopes to, yes. But not necessarily expecting him to be ready. Here's what he said at the press conference last Monday:

 

Reich wasn't quite ready to declare one way or another if Turay — who is perhaps the Colts' top speed rusher off the edge — would be available starting next week or not.

"(He's) making good progress," Reich said of Turay. "We'll see after the bye whether he's ready for Detroit or not. I'm not sure about that yet, but he's making good progress."

If he's making progress that's all that matters he'll probably be back by week 9 if everything is good to go

This dude was signed to the practice squad.   Has nothing to do with Turan or anyone else on the active roster or IR

Agree, hope he's back soon. Guess we'll know more in a couple days...Reich also says Turay will have to practice a couple of weeks before he is ready to play.

Colts want more pressure off the edge. Good depth signing.

Yeah have to agree with you. The more depth we have the fresher players will be on defense.

    • Interesting that he didn't say the Colts doctors are keeping him from practicing.  It's up to AC.  To me that says there is a possibility he plays Sunday.  He could sit out again on Thursday and be limited on Friday.  Decide game day.  Maybe he wears a brace and he plays.  Sounds like it's all up to AC when he goes.  
    • I'd just prefer to use him at 3T on passing downs only. If he puts wait on, I think he'd lose explosiveness. No need to use him vs the run at all, unless of course due to injury (like last week).
    • are the colts planning on beefing up lewis ? he seems to small to play defensive tackle . why not have him gain some weight ?
    • lewis is good in passing downs at defensive tackle but was getting bullied against the run he is to small .  If they want to keep him at the 3  why not get his weight up to at least 290  and build his strength up .    lewis was getting pushed back against tenn pretty badly , but against the pass gets push from using his athletic ability and speed .
    • Yep, I agree that he'd likely have been available later. There have been several like that, but I don't get too caught up on that so long as it works. It seems to be working out, but yes, I think we could have waited.    Lewis at OSU had his best moments at OSU when moving inside as a rush 3T. His production decreased as OSU recruited some high star guys, but OSU still was able to move him around get pretty good use out of him. I do agree with you though that he's destined to be at his best when playing a role. I'm not sure what his future holds, but with all our DEs being FA next year, and 3T locked up for the future, he could end up playing more DE than expected. Personally, I'd prefer he be rush DT in passing downs with Buckner moving over.
