Moncrief’s return gives the Colts some size and also a possession receiver for Luck to turn to. Moncrief injured his shoulder in the first half of their game against Denver in Week 2.
“He is a heck of a player,” offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said. “He can catch the ball down the field, he is good in the short game. He is a big, strong guy that can make plays on top of guys even when he is covered.”
Luck threw for 353 yards with no interceptions against the Tennessee Titans without Moncrief and Dorsett. The quarterback could be even more effective with healthy group of receivers while facing a Kansas City team that only has eight sacks on the season.
