  • Colts' Ben Banogu: Gets sack in preseason opener

    Banogu had three tackles and a sack in Saturday's preseason loss at Buffalo. Banogu has been a disappointment as a second-round draft pick, as he had just two tackles while playing 66 snaps on defense last season.

Banogu is expected to undergo further testing in the coming days before a specific diagnosis is provided.

  • Colts' Ben Banogu: Splitting work between DL and LB

    Banogu worked with the defensive line Tuesday during OTAs, but will alternate between end and linebacker in future sessions, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. Banogu, a second-round pick in April, is expected to play linebacker in the team's base defense and rush from the end in sub-packages. He warrants monitoring in IDP leagues thanks to the pass-rushing upside he might offer thanks to his 4.62-second 40-yard dash time, 40-inch vertical and 134-inch broad jump.
