Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram is not worried about facing Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday.
When asked after practice Thursday what kind of problems the former Bears’ QB presented the Chargers’ defense, Ingram was concise in his answer.
Bruce Arians earned AP Coach of the Year honors in 2012 as Indianapolis’s interim leader in the wake of Chuck Pagano’s cancer diagnosis. That success led him directly to Phoenix, where’s he’s coached the Cardinals through three good seasons and one mediocre one.
On Sunday, he’ll face the Colts for the second time as Arizona’s head coach, his first time coaching in Indianapolis since 2012. However, he won’t see his one-time quarterback, Andrew Luck, on the playing field.
Luck is currently recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and will not play for the second consecutive week. The Colts have been tight-lipped about Luck’s status, but they need him back as soon as he’s healthy. Scott Tolzien looked horrible as the starting quarterback in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams, so the Colts will turn to Jacoby Brissett in Week 2.
But Arians will at least get the opportunity to talk to Luck during pregame warmups. That’s not exciting, but it’s something to look forward to, right?
