|Colts GM wants Bjoern Werner to get stronger |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/16/14) Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has challenged 2013 first-round pick and outside linebacker Bjoern Werner to bulk up in the offseason.
"He knows he needs to get stronger. He knows that," Grigson said in his postseason press conference.
Grigson did add that he felt Werner got better against the run as the year progressed. Werner started just one game in 2013 and managed 18 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks.
|Colts largely healthy for Saturday's showdown |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(1/4/14) Though the Colts entered the Wild Card game against the Chiefs with an extensive list of injured players on the defensive side of the ball, all but one was able to play Saturday. Among the 10 players listed on the injury report, only defensive lineman Fili Moala (knee) was unable to play.
The list of Colts defenders able to play through injuries reads as follows: defensive backs Sergio Brown (groin), Darius Butler (quadriceps), Vontae Davis (groin) and Greg Toler (groin); linebackers Bjoern Werner (ankle) and Robert Mathis (not injury related); and defensive linemen Cory Redding (shoulder), Ricky Jean Francois (foot) and Aubrayo Franklin (knee).
|Three Colts defenders day-to-day |

(12/30/13) Colts coach Chuck Pagano said cornerback Vontae Davis (groin), defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin (knee) and outside linebacker Bjoern Werner (ankle) are day-to-day ahead of Saturday's playoff game vs. the Chiefs, reports the Indianapolis Star. An MRI on Davis came back negative, Pagano said.
|Bjoern Werner questionable to return Week 17 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/29/13) Colts LB Bjoern Werner is questionable to return Week 17.
Werner is listed with an ankle injury. Werner has not been involved in any tackles, but did have a pass defensed.
|The Colts have seemingly replaced Dwight Freeney with Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner. The German-born athlete closed his career with the Noles with 35 tackles for loss, 23.5 sacks, 18 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in just two seasons. Werner's size (6-foot-3, 266 pounds) gives the Colts some versatility to play him in the box. He's probably just big enough to play end in their 3-4 front and just sleek enough to be a pass rush force. It's a pretty safe pick for the Colts. If he ends up as a defensive lineman for Fantasy purposes then Werner has some appeal as a mid- to late-round pick in seasonal leagues. If he's an outside linebacker then he's more of a late-round flier. Either way he's a mid- to late-round pick in rookie-only drafts and dynasty/keeper leagues. (Updated 5/15/13) |
