A change at quarterback? No, it’s not time for quarterback Andrew Luck to return yet. And coach Chuck Pagano has already said Scott Tolzien will start at quarterback against the Lions in the preseason opener on Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
But there could be changes when it comes to who backs Tolzien up. Undrafted rookie Phillip Walker out of Temple has appeared to move ahead of Stephen Morris, who is in his third season with the team, on the quarterback depth chart, as he’s been getting the bulk of the snaps with the second unit.
The Colts say they haven’t determined the rotation behind Tolzien on Sunday, but Pagano did acknowledge that Walker has seen increased snaps.
“He’s done a nice job and he’s performed well,” Pagano said. “We’re taking a really good look at him.”
