Colts DE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He'll be a lackluster IDP option even if active.

The Colts have ruled LB Shaquille Leonard out for the 3rd straight game as he continues to work back from June back surgery. Leonard's continued absence leaves E.J. Speed in the lineup and Zaire Franklin joining Bobby Okereke as full-timers at LB.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner and CB Kenny Moore are both active for today's game against the Jaguars. Each player turned up questionable with a hip injury but is in play for IDP lineups.

Colts CB Kenny Moore (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He sustained the injury in Wednesday's practice and then sat out Thursday. But Moore returned to a full workout Friday. So it seems we should expect him to play.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars with a hip injury. ESPN’s Stephen Holder writes “odds are that Buckner will play” but adds that he’ll test the hip Saturday. We’ll watch the status for the defensive star

The Colts have ruled LB Shaquille Leonard out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Leonard — working back from June back surgery — returned to full practice this week, which suggests he’s a strong possibility for Week 3. E.J. Speed stepped into Leonard’s starting role in Week 1, supplying 7 tackles (3 solo) and a sack. But he played just 54% of the snaps, which makes him tough to believe in for Week 2. LB Zaire Franklin joined Bobby Okereke as the full-timers. Expect Okereke to join Leonard in that pairing once the star is all the way back

Colts LB Shaquille Leonard (back) participated fully in practice Wednesday, pointing to a potential return for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Leonard rejoined the team late in August but wasn't quite ready to play in the opener. If he's ready for Week 2, expect LB Zaire Franklin to lose playing time.

The Colts have ruled LB Shaquille Leonard out for Sunday's opener against the Texans. The veteran is still working back from June back surgery. We'll see about his status for Week 2. Leonard's absence leaves Bobby Okereke as the best play at LB for the Colts, and a high-upside IDP option for the week.

Colts LB Shaquille Leonard hit the practice field Wednesday for the 1st time since his June back surgery. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready for the regular-season opener, but it's another sign that his full return is approaching. We'll watch the official practice reports on Leonard leading up to Week 1 and see if HC Frank Reich offers further status updates.

The Colts are taking LB Shaquille Leonard of the PUP list, according to multiple reports. We'll see what the team says about just when we should expect Leonard to return to the field, but this is obviously good news. It means Indy at least expects its defensive stud to be ready inside the 1st 4 games. Leonard has missed all of training camp and the preseason while recovering from June back surgery.

Colts DE Kwity Paye hurt his left knee in Wednesday's practice. Despite initial fears, however, the 2nd-year player suffered only a bone bruise "and should be fine," according to ESPN's Stephen Holder. We'll see whether the issue threatens Paye's Week 1 status.

Colts HC Frank Reich spoke positively this week about LB Shaquille (Darius) Leonard staying involved in training-camp practices despite not taking part physically, as he works back from June back surgery. But it still doesn't sound like the team knows exactly when he'll be back. "I know he is continuing good rehab, having progress, but we are still not in that mode," Reich said, per SI.com's Horseshoe Huddle. "I don't think it is imminent, but I think he is making progress." Jake Arthur told us Friday on the podcast that he doesn't think Leonard would need much practice time to be ready for the season once his body's good to go. We'll keep watching, though, for some indication of when that will be.

The Colts have activated DE Tyquan Lewis and S Rodney McLeod from the physically unable to perform list. Each guy has been working back from a knee issue, and it appears each is now ready for regular training camp participation.

The Colts have placed LB Darius Leonard on the PUP list to open training camp. It's not a surprise. Leonard had back surgery in early June, and it was reported at the time that he'd miss some of camp. Lingering trouble with the ankle that has been bothering Leonard since before last season started might be the bigger concern, though. We'll see how long the star remains on the PUP list, from which the team can activate him at any time. If Leonard winds up on the regular-season PUP list, he'd have to miss at least 4 games. To date, we haven't seen that reported as a possibility. The Colts also placed S Rodney McLeod (undisclosed) and DE Tyquan Lewis (knee) on the PUP ahead of camp starting.

Colts S Khari Willis announced his retirement Wednesday after just 3 years in the league. Willis said he plans "to devote the remainder of my life to the further advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." His retirement leaves an opening in Indy's starting lineup, with Rodney McLeod, rookie Nick Cross and Julian Blackmon looking like the primary competitors. Cross -- a 3rd-round pick out of Maryland -- looks most interesting from an IDP standpoint. He tested great at the Combine -- 98th-percentile 40, 92nd-percentile broad jump, 71st-percentile vertical -- at 6'0, 212 pounds. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein called him "the bouncer of the Maryland defense," lauding his "aggression and explosiveness." Zierlein also highlighted Cross' tackling ability near the line of scrimmage and in the open field, which sounds good for his tackle-collection potential in the pros.

The Colts are signing CB Stephon Gilmore to a 2-year deal, according to multiple reports. The move lands Indy's defense the top remaining corner on the market and a guy capable of performing as 1 of the top cover men in the league. Gilmore hasn't been much of an IDP factor throughout his career, though, and shouldn't be counted on for worthwhile fantasy numbers in his new spot.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He arrived questionable and is likely well short of 100% after missing the entire week of practice with a nagging knee injury. He'll be risky but also carry upside as an IDP option.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Buckner missed practice all week with a nagging knee issue and seems like a legitimate game-day decision.
