    If you’re looking for a candidate to become an emerging figure for the Indianapolis Colts this fall, the name of second-year linebacker Philip Wheeler shouldn’t be far down your list. Limited almost entirely to special-teams duties last season, partly because of some training-camp injury difficulties, Wheeler — a four-year letterwinner at Georgia Tech who was the Colts’ third-round draft choice in 2008 — is being given a chance to earn a starting spot at strongside linebacker this year.
