Colts WR Josh Downs Starts in the Slot over Isaiah McKenzie

Colts beat reporter Nate Atkins also said that Indy could rely on Josh Downs’ skillset on underneath and short routes to help acclimate Anthony Richardson to the NFL climate.

McKenzie, who was a relatively cheap free agent acquisition coming off a solid year in Buffalo, took the first snaps in the Colts' preseason opener, but the script was flipped in this weekend’s action with Josh Downs getting the start.

Downs has received rave reviews so far in camp and should be able to challenge for significant snaps as the Colts starting slot receiver in the regular season. His ultimate ceiling, of course, will depend on Anthony Richardson’s development in year 1.
