Tolzien effective as Colts edge Steelers 19-15

Tolzien effective as Colts edge Steelers 19-15”

The Indianapolis Colts picked up their first victory of the preseason Saturday night, beating the Steelers 19-15 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

CARDINALS: The Cardinals dropped to 1-2 in preseason play with a 24-23 loss to the Bears last week. Boswell's kick was true this time from 37 yards out.

Scott Tolzien has spent most of training camp watching Stephen Morris inch closer and closer in the race to be the Week 1 Colts starting quarterback if Andrew Luck's surgically repaired right shoulder doesn't heal in time.

Tolzien completed 7 of 10 passes for 123 yards, while Morris went 12 of 16 for 143 yards.

Brown sat out the first two Steelers' preseason game as the team decided not to risk injury to their star wideout. Roethlisberger completed 6 of 9 passes for 73 yards. Morris has led a scoring march in all seven preseason games he's played for Indianapolis. Luck is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and may not be ready for the regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Rams on September 10 at Los Angeles.

Saturday was a confidence-builder for Tolzien and the Colts because they needed to see something out of the offense to give them hope that they can be effective without Luck if he doesn't play against the Rams. Morris has never taken a regular-season National Football League snap.

"There's going to be times when you're not clicking or not starting games fast", Tolzien said. It is just the whole sequence of things, even just the pregame stuff. After a three and out, the Colts marched six plays for 60 yards for another field goal. Yet he may have helped his trade value more than his status with Indianapolis. He hit Moncrief over the middle on the Colts' first snap. We got off to a good start, forced a turnover on defense and then get some points on the board with our offense.

"It was just fun to make some plays", Dorsett said. Pittsburgh got the ball back with under a minute to go but Josh Dobbs could not orchestrate a game-winning drive.

The Steelers, who fell to 2-1 in the preseason, were driving in Colts territory on their first possession when Roethlisberger was stripped from behind and fumbled. Simon was signed to a three-year, $14-million contract as a free agent in the offseason after spending his first four seasons with the Houston Texans. Brown will continue to serve as the primary weapon in the Steelers' wide receiver corps, while Martavis Bryant, Eli Rogers, Sammie Coates and rookie Juju Smith-Schuster (knee) battle for targets behind the veteran.

"It was OK", Roethlisberger said.
