The Colts have released their initial regular season depth chart. See who is playing where.

We had plenty of preseason depth charts, but for the first time with the 53-man roster, let's take a look at the Colts depth chart:

Offense:

QB: Andrew LuckMatt Hasselbeck

WR: Reggie Wayne, Hakeem Nicks, Da'Rick Rogers

LT: Anthony Castonzo, Joe Reitz

LG: Jack Mewhort

C: Khaled Holmes, Jonotthan Harrison, A.Q. Shipley

RG: Hugh Thornton, Lance Louis

RT: Gosder Cherilus, Xavier Nixon

TE: Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener, Jack Doyle

WR: T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, Griff Whalen

FB: Mario Harvey

RB: Trent RichardsonAhmad Bradshaw, Dan Heron, Zurlon Tipton

Defense:

DE: Cory Redding, Ricky Jean Francois

NT: Josh Chapman, Montori Hughes

DT: Arthur Jones, Zach Kerr

OLB: Erik Walden, Jonathan Newsome, Andy Studebaker

ILB: D'Qwell Jackson, Henoc Muamba

ILB: Jerrell Freeman, Josh McNary

OLB: Bjoern Werner, Cam Johnson

LCB: Greg Toler, Josh Gordy, Loucheiz Purifoy

SS: Mike Adams, Colt Anderson

FS: LaRon Landry, Sergio Brown

RCB: Vontae Davis, Darius Butler

Special Teams:

P: Pat McAfee

K: Adam Vinatieri

H: Pat McAfee, Griff Whalen

LS: Matt Overton

KR: Dan Herron, Donte Moncrief

PR: Loucheiz Purifoy, Griff Whalen

There really aren't any surprises here, which is to be expected.  Also, there aren't really any changes from the preseason and camp one, only less players.  It is interesting to note the returners - Dan Herron at kick returner and then Loucheiz Purifoy at punt returner.  We'll see how often the Colts change that up, but I don't mind either of them.

Overall, it's obvious from looking at this depth chart that this actually looks like a really great team on paper.  Of course, that's without injuries and anticipating that everyone plays as well as we know they can.  Neither of those will happen, but I think it's an encouraging depth chart for Colts fans.  As long as they're healthy.  And as long as Andrew Luck is the starting quarterback.

What are your thoughts on the initial regular season depth chart for the Colts?
