INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts know they've got to improve their ground game.
The Colts haven't scored 20 points in either of their first two games, and running back Joseph Addai has 27 carries for just 64 yards in two games. Thirty-five other NFL players have more yards rushing than the Colts have produced as a team.
Part of the problem for Indianapolis is adjusting to a rebuilt offensive line. Injuries have completely changed the Colts, including sidelined starters Jeff Saturday and Ryan Lilja. Tackle Tony Ugoh left Sunday's game at Minnesota with a groin injury.
But coach Tony Dungy says the replacements have played well despite the continuing struggles. And he says the running game will come around if the rest of the team executes well.
