Anderson registers tackle, QB hit

INDIANAPOLIS — Colt Anderson got some serious playing time for the Indianapolis Colts Saturday.

The New York Giants rallied for a 27-26 win over the Colts in the second preseason game for both teams.

Anderson, a former Philadelphia Eagle safety, registered a tackle and a quarterback hit in the loss. He was also flagged for defensive holding — a penalty that was declined — on the Giants first touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The NFL has put an emphasis on defensive holding calls this preseason, drawing criticism from players, coaches and analysts.

Anderson, a 2004 Butte High graduate, signed with the Colts as a free agent this past offseason. The former All-American at the University of Montana, spent the past four seasons as a special teams ace and backup safety for the Eagles.

The game is currently being replayed on the NFL Network. It started at 9 p.m. 1 comment
