With too many players missing to hold an effective rookies versus veterans scrimmage, the Colts offense took on the Colts defense in front of over 3,000 fans in Terre Haute. Points were awarded to each unit for scoring, offensive plays of 20 yards or more, takeaways, forcing fumbles, tackles for a loss or a sack, and forcing a punting situation.
The offense emerged victorious when quarterback Shaun King, who ran two series in the scrimmage, hit undrafted rookie Brian Hare out of Purdue on a 14-yard pass play with no time remaining that gave the offense a narrow 16-15 edge over the defense. King used his scrambling ability to roll right and put the ball perfectly where only Hare could pull it in.
King said it's a play they've worked on in camp.
"We do a little scramble drill – high in the back of the end zone where it's his ball or nobody's ball," he told John Oehser at Colts.com.
