Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught just three passes for 20 yards during Sunday's win against the Raiders. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw saw just seven carries, six fewer than Vick Ballard . Head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that he wants to see both players get more chances in upcoming games.
According to George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin, Pagano said getting Hilton more plays and touches was the "first thing coaches talked about" coming out of Week 1. Hilton was on the field for just 24 of Indianapolis' 53 plays Sunday.
And according to Kevin Bowen of Colts.com, Pagano said the team will try to give Bradshaw and Ballard an equal amount of work.
Hilton is a fine WR3 this week against the Dolphins. I'm a little more concerned about Bradshaw because it seems like his carry limit is set at about 10-12 right now. Things will improve as the season ages and Bradshaw works off the rust of no preseason action, but the Dolphins have a good run defense, so you should probably put him on your bench for this week.
