Which Colts Played Every Game In 2018?

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s a list that includes some very important names, along with six rookies.

The Colts had more than a dozen players suit up and participate in every single game of the 2018 season.

Here’s a look at the Colts’ 13 (non-specialists) position players who didn’t miss a game all year:

-QB-Andrew Luck: This is the most important name on the ‘ironmen’ list for the Colts in 2018. Not only did Luck play in every game for the first time in 2014, he also participated fully in every practice. This was a huge goal for Luck in 2018.


-RB-Nyheim Hines: The Colts have 6 rookies who played in every game in 2018. That’s impressive. I can’t really recall Hines being on the injury report in his first NFL season.


-RB-Jordan Wilkins: Wilkins started 3 games early in the season before his role diminished significantly, with Marlon Mack healthy. To have your two rookie running backs (both Saturday draft picks) survive an NFL season, barely show up on the injury report, and contribute, is a nice win for the Colts.


-TE-Eric Ebron: For a second straight season, Ebron played in all 16 games. He started in just 8 games though as the Colts tried to use him in specific situations (mostly on passing downs).


-WR-Chester Rogers: The former undrafted wide receiver actually started 10 games for an inconsistent wideout group in 2018. Rogers was also the team’s punt returner. Rogers is a restricted free agent this offseason, after he caught 53 balls, which was easily the second most for any Indy receiver last year.


-WR-Zach Pascal: Pascal was the other returner for the Colts this season. One of the guys who snuck his way onto the 53-man roster, Pascal saw chances as a receiver rise more and more as the year went along. Pascal was an undrafted free agent of the Redskins in 2017.


-LG-Quenton Nelson: The stud left guard didn’t miss a single offensive snap for the Colts in 2018. He was the team’s only player to have that distinction. Nelson played the third most offensive snaps (1,137) of anyone in the NFL last year.


-DE-Jabaal Sheard: The only defender to start all 16 games, Sheard battled through injuries to once again play in each contest. Sheard’s durability (7 missed games in 8 years) is notable for a defensive lineman.


-LB-Zaire Franklin: The seventh-round pick from Syracuse played more than half of his 176 defensive snaps in two games last year (NE and NYG). Franklin was mainly a special teams presence.


-LB-Najee Goode: Easily the eldest member of an incredibly young linebacker group, Goode didn’t log a single defensive snap in the final 11 games of the season. Goode was dressing though and playing on special teams.


-LB-Matthew Adams: Like Franklin, Adams was the other 7th round pick of the Colts in 2018. Adams saw his time on the field rise later in the year, serving as the team’s third linebacker in their base package.


-CB-Pierre Desir: This was an important year for Desir to show his availability. He played all 16 games (started 12), after having played in double-digit games only once from 2014-17.


-S-George Odum: The undrafted rookie from Central Arkansas first started mainly as a special teams guy, before playing more and more on defense. Odum battled through some late-season injuries to help the depth at safety.


Colts that played in 15 games: OT-Braden Smith, DL-Margus Hunt, DL-Al-Quadin Muhammad, DT-Grover Stewart, LB-Anthony Walker, LB-Darius Leonard, CB-Kenny Moore, CB-Chris Milton, S-Corey Moore.
