Rugby star eager to prove himself with Colts

Indianapolis Colts

Daniel Adongo finally feels comfortable playing football in America.
He's figured out the lingo and nuances of the sport, learned the right way to put on pads and a helmet, and understands how he fits into the Colts' locker room. Now the African rugby star turned NFL linebacker will get to show the football world how far he's come.
One day after being promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Adongo would be used primarily on special teams against the Bengals on Sunday - his first football game of any kind.
