The Indianapolis Colts and Frank Reich drafted Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell in the second round of the 2018 and for obvious reasons. The organization had high expectations for the speedy wideout.
While Campbell underwhelmed didn’t have a major impact in year one as many thought he would, there’s at least one member of the Colts organization who is incredibly excited for Campbell’s second year.
Colts head coach Frank Reich spoke to the media this week regarding the former Buckeye star and mentioned how excited he is to see Campbell develop.
“I’m super pumped about Parris and his upside,” Reich said per Kevin Bowen of 1070TheFan.
The third-year head coach also told the media that fans can expect to see Campbell in the slot more this season and that the team will try to move him around. Reich also mentioned that he is staying in touch with the Colts’ training staff to see how Campbell is rehabbing from a broken foot that ultimately ended his season.
Campbell also suffered from several other injuries last season including a nagging hamstring, a midseason sports hernia and a fractured hand. For that reason, the former second-rounder appeared in just seven games last season for the Colts, making three starts.
In those games, the 6-foot, 205-pound pass-catcher totaled 18 catches for 127 yards and one touchdown while also rushing the ball four times for 34 yards.
The development of Campbell in his second season will be imperative for veteran starting quarterback Philip Rivers, who joined the Colts this offseason after spending the last 16 with the Los Angeles Chargers.
