Indianapolis' defensive tackle rotation will certainly have a different look to it in 2009. The Colts are deeper, depth-wise, at the position and are certainly bigger along the defensive line heading into training camp.
"Overall, and rather than going right down the list person-by-person, I can tell you they are making good progress. Fili (Moala) is doing a good job. Terrance Taylor is doing a good job. The entire group is really working well, Adrian Grady, and so forth," head coach Jim Caldwell said.
"The guys are learning and they are adapting. (Defensive line coach) John Teerlinck coaches those guys and does a tremendous job in terms of getting them in place and ready to play. We have a lot of work to do in that area, but I do believe that they are making good progress."
