He also hinted that Wong would see some action at ILB as a pass rusher, and I am assuming that Wong would be stepping in for Foreman in that case because Sharper is definitely a better pass rusher than Foreman.
The logical progression is that Wong likely starts on normal down and distance packages at ROLB, when it becomes more of a passing down Foreman will go out and Wong shifts inside and Peek comes in to man the edge. I read somewhere that the Colts will be moving Freeney from right to left this year to create a bit more opportunity for him and for teams to have more to scheme for, so this kind of shifting of our linebackers will likely be something akin to that.
