Colts hoping rebuilt offensive line holds up

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Colts spent the early hours of free agency revamping their offensive line.

They're about to find out if they'll get the desired results: reducing the hits on franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

As a rookie, Luck was sacked 41 times and took dozens more hits, far too many in the eyes of team owner Jim Irsay, general manager Ryan Grigson and coach Chuck Pagano.

So the front office wasted no time making changes. The Colts signed free agents Gosder Cherilus and Donald Thomas and drafted two more linemen in April, hoping that would fix the problem.

While Luck has taken some hits in the first two preseason games, the Colts are convinced this line will be better.
