Lang still hasn’t practiced on back to back days since the pads came on, and didn’t appear in either of the joint practices in Indy. And the guys who are out there haven’t exactly blown the roof off the joint. Graham Glasgow has been up and down on the left side, while Joe Dahl has been underwhelming — and on Friday, he was awful. He barely got a hand on Colts DT Henry Anderson on his first rep in one-on-ones. How that happens, I don’t know — and then he did the exact same thing against Margus Hunt on his next rep. Dahl wasn’t much better in two-on-twos either, where he got tossed like a rag Dahl during stunt work. (A joke so bad, it obviously came from the Detroit News’ Justin Rogers.)

The former first-round pick has done little to climb out of the doghouse, including whiffing entirely on a one-on-one Thursday.
