CINCINNATI — Colt Anderson is in competition to be a starting safety for the Indianapolis Colts.
Thursday night at Paul Brown Stadium, the former Butte High Bulldogs and Montana Grizzly certainly didn’t do anything to hurt his chances.
Anderson registered six tackles for the Colts, who fell 35-7 to the Cincinnati Bengals in the final preseason game for both teams. Anderson and Marcus Burley teamed to bring down Jeremy Hill after a 5-yard run on the game’s first play from scrimmage.
Anderson ended the game with six tackles, three of which were of the solo variety.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano rested 20 of his 22 offensive and defensive starters in the final tune up. Jack Mewhort, Mike Adams and Anderson were the only three possible starters to play.
