Frank Reich concerned about Colts throwing the ball so much
The Indianapolis Colts turned incredibly pass-heavy in their last two games, and that’s not something Frank Reich wants to see.
The Colts’ first-year head coach acknowledged on Friday that he has concerns about how much they’ve thrown the ball, saying it’s “killing him.”
Reich on the offensive balance:
“It’s killing me having to throw it this much. The story doesn’t end well when you have to sustain this level of throwing."

Indianapolis fell behind against the New England Patriots on Thursday night and ended up throwing 59 passes, compared to just 21 runs. The week before, they threw 62 passes compared to 17 runs. They lost both games.
Andrew Luck is on pace to set a career-high in pass completions and attempts, and potentially passing yards. He’s also coming off a serious shoulder injury that left concerns about his arm strength and ability to throw. If there were any thoughts of easing him back into the league after missing last season, they’ve left long ago.
