Colts | Proehl's role will increase

John Oehser, of, reports Indianapolis Colts WR Ricky Proehl is expected to get an increased role in the team's offense with the loss of WR Brandon Stokley (Achilles') and TE Dallas Clark (knee) to injuries. "He'll step up," said QB Peyton Manning of Proehl. "I think if it was any other player, with less experience than Ricky, you'd have a point. This is a guy who has been in the league 16 years, who is very knowledgeable of football. He has picked up the system as quickly as anybody we've had here in the short two or three weeks he has been here." Proehl has 668 receptions for 8,871 yards and 54 touchdowns in his career. In Week 14, he caught two passes for 23 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
