07:23 AM ET 12.05 | A combination of injury and performance has led to recent lineup changes in Indianapolis, particularly at running back and at right guard. More might be on the way. At wide receiver, signs point toward more of rookie Da'Rick Rogers and less of veteran Darrius Heyward-Bey. Rogers made his NFL debut last Sunday against Tennessee when he was on the field for 13 offensive plays. He failed to catch a pass, but drew a 26-yard interference penalty against Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner in the second quarter that led to one of Adam Vinatieri's five field goals. "More snaps means more opportunities to make plays," Rogers said. "I just want to get out there and do the right things and be in the right place for Andrew (Luck)."

Heyward-Bey couldn't even cut it in Oakland. Another mistake by Al Davis in his later years.

Darrius - hope you saved that money Bro.

It was a colossal mistake by Al Davis who was blinded by speed and taken right before Michael Crabtree.

I'll drink to that.

After seeing DHB fail in Oakland, I had surmised (incorrectly) that Torrey Smith, from the same program, was cut from the same cloth. Fortunately, I was quite wrong about that.

I was surprised anyone would give him a big contract after showing how poorly he played in Oakland. I saw a few Colts games this year and it was more of the same. Dropping so many catchable balls and basically playing like he just doesn't care. If he gets cut this year, it will be buyer beware for whoever signs him next and if they were smart, they'd make it incentive laden. Maybe that will give him some motivation to put forth some effort.

I see where the Pats resigned WR Austin Collie. Their rookie receivers Dobson and Thompkins have been banged up.

He'll probably get a knee injury running out of the tunnel

There you go...

You never know about a guy. I don't know whether the tragedy Smith had to deal with impacted his commitment to the game... but there is no doubt you guys have a keeper.
