The Indianapolis Colts will continue to use a split at the right guard position between veteran Mark Glowinski and Chris Reed.

With how Reed performed in the absence of Quenton Nelson for the three weeks that the latter was on the injured reserve list, the Colts were impressed enough o give him a shot at winning the starting right guard spot over Glowinski, who has struggled a bit in 2021.

Head coach Frank Reich told reporters that a starter has yet to be named for the Week 8 matchup with the Tennessee Titans, but the duo will split reps for now.

“No, at some level those guys are going to split the reps,” Reich said. “We’ll make a decision later in the week as far as the starter, but either way we go those guys are going to split the reps.”

The Week 7 win against the San Francisco 49ers was the first time the duo split reps. While Glowinski got the start, it was Reed who played 65% of the snaps compared to the former’s 35%.

Reed has given the Colts a lot of push in the run game and helped the unit get back on track while Nelson was recovering from his high-ankle sprain. Meanwhile, Glowinski is tied with Eric Fisher for having allowed the most pressures (21) on the team through seven games, per Pro Football Focus.

Both players are fighting for a new contract either with the Colts or with another team following the 2021 season and it seems they will split time for the foreseeable future.
