Bills vs. Colts, NFL Week 1: Robert Mathis wants to play

The Colts' best pass rusher, Robert Mathis, wants to play against the Bills in Week 1, despite only having just been activated following a year-long Achilles recovery. Will he make it? Indianapolis Colts pass rusher Robert Mathis missed the entirety of the 2014 season with an Achilles injury, and he was only removed from the team's Physically Unable to Perform list this week. If he has it his way, however, he'll make good on an offseason-long proclamation that he'll be playing in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Colts 2015 Player Preview: Outside Linebacker Robert Mathis

The Indianapolis Colts will report to training camp on August 1 with a 90-man roster, and we'll be taking a look at every single player on the roster (though it obviously will change some) as we approach camp. Today, we look at outside linebacker Robert Mathis. Robert Mathis is one of the few remaining links from the current Colts teams to the teams that were led by Peyton Manning and that achieved incredible success, and Mathis is also one of the all-time great Colts and a player who will, one day, end up in their Ring of Honor.  Yet entering the 2015 season, there are still plenty of...
