INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Robert Mathis still remembers the first time he wandered into the Colts' no-hit zone.
As the fifth-round draft pick went through yet another practice in 2003, he wound up getting a little too close to Peyton Manning on a pass rush. No, he didn't hit the franchise quarterback, but Indy coaches immediately scolded the rookie and reminded him of the potentially dire consequences of being cut if he made the same mistake again.
Mathis wised up fast, which is why he is still hanging around Indianapolis (4-2) and wreaking havoc in opposing backfields.
On Sunday, they'll be taking aim at Manning when he leads the Broncos (6-0) into Lucas Oil Stadium for the first time since the Colts released him.
