The Indianapolis Colts limits the number of reps they can achieve on a first-team offense through their first two preseason games.
So what are the plans for their final exhibition game before the final roster cut?
Speaking to the media on Sunday, Colts head coach Frank Reich revealed his plans for the third game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
They announced that players starting with the NFC South champions would play "till the half".
For quarterback Matt Ryan, it will be his first action since August 13 against the Buffalo Bills.
He went 6 out of 10 for 58 yards, which was ultimately a 27–24 loss.
Ryan will apparently go toe-to-toe with Tom Brady, who is also expected to play in that game.
This will be Ryan's last chance to get a live rep before the September 11 first season against the Houston Texans.
The Indianapolis Colts acquired Matt Ryan in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons.
He dropped a third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to bring him into the fold.
At 14 years in Atlanta, Ryan was a four-time pro bowler, winning the NFL MVP award in 2016.
Taking the Falcons to the Super Bowl in the process. He went 120-102 as a start.
The Colts have a roster that is ready to make a deep playoff run if they can correct the quarterback position.
Are the Colts making the right move with their plans for Matt Ryan?
