On Monday at practice, there was an interesting tidbit about the Colts’ starting lineup that is worth noting: Darius Butler took the overwhelming majority of reps as the first-team safety.
Part of that was due to injuries. Both starting safeties were out on Monday, as Mike Adams got a rest day and Clayton Geathers is still on the non-football injury list. Rookie safety T.J. Green returned to practice and worked with the first-team, and at the other safety spot was Darius Butler – playing ahead of Winston Guy and others.
This wasn’t the first time we’ve seen Butler at safety, either. In fact, he’s been working there for the majority of his reps in training camp so far. It seems very possible that Butler could indeed be moving to safety.
