Description: The team's official site reports that Wheeler will be moved to the strong side to compete for a starting job. Last year's starter there, Clint Session, is being moved to the weak side.
Insight: Wheeler was mainly a special-teamer in his rookie season but was a productive middle linebacker in college. The other two linebacker spots have been more productive in the Colts' defense over the past few years -- and tend to be more productive in general -- but Wheeler will be worth watching if joins the lineup.
