Bjoern Werner LB IND May 12 '79
Colts first-round OLB Bjoern Werner has spent most of camp as a backup.
Defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said that Werner is behind starting rush linebacker Robert Mathis "right now." Werner is also getting second-team reps behind Erik Walden on the strong side. We'd expect the No. 24 overall pick to settle into some kind of rotation with Walden, pinning his ears back on passing downs.
