Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Football News 2019

Colts CB Rock Ya-Sin (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Texans. Indy gets CB Pierre Desir back, however, after 4 games lost to a hamstring injury.

The Colts have ruled S Khari Willis (concussion) out for Thursday night's game against the Texans. That should mean more time for Clayton Geathers back on the field, but Indianapolis has limited his playing time at every turn. S George Odum figures to split snaps with him to some degree. CB Rock Ya-Sin (ankle) is questionable vs. Houston. We'll update his status Thursday evening.

Colts DE Justin Houston (calf) and S Malik Hooker (knee) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each guy turned up questionable but is available for normal usage. Houston looks less attractive for IDP lineups than usual with the calf issue and strong Pittsburgh pass protection.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He suffered a calf injury in Thursday's practice that then kept him out Friday. We'll need to watch Houston's status Sunday morning. S Malik Hooker is also questionable. He returned last week after missing 3 games with a knee injury. Hooker opened this practice week on the field but then was limited Thursday and sat out Friday, again with a knee issue. He hasn't been much of an IDP option even when healthy, at least. His previous replacement, Khari Willis, looks ready to go if Hooker sits.

Colts DE Justin Houston is active for today's game against the Texans. He turned up questionable after a calf injury kept him out of practice Thursday and Friday. But there's too much upside against a Houston offense missing RT Tytus Howard to leave this guy on your IDP bench.

Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans with a calf injury. Houston missed the final 2 practices after beginning the week as a healthy participant. We've moved Houston down the DL rankings for the week and will update his status Sunday morning.

The Colts added DE Justin Houston to the injury report after he missed Thursday's practice with a calf injury. We'll have to watch the situation into the weekend. An active Houston would face a terrific matchulp with Houston -- boosted further by Texans RT Tytus Howard being out with a knee injury.

The Colts have ruled LB Darius Leonard (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight game missed. LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is also questionable for the game. Walker didn't miss any practice this week and wasn't even listed on the injury report until Friday -- when he put in a full workout. We'd have to bet on him playing, but the status obviously means we'll need to check the Sunday night inactives.

Colts HC Frank Reich said MLB Darius Leonard will put in a limited practice Wednesday, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. There's no word yet on Leonard clearing the concussion protocol, but this progress bodes well for his potential Week 5 return. If Leonard is ready for Sunday's game at Kansas City, then LB Anthony Walker would likely return to playing about half the snaps and not being a big IDP help.

Colts DE Jabaal Sheard will make his season debut today against the Raiders. He's active for the 1st time following a summer knee injury that required surgery. Sheard still hasn't returned to full practice, and we wouldn't bet on a big role for him today. We'll be curious to track his participation and progress, though.

Colts MLB Darius Leonard will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against the Raiders with a concussion. Leonard has yet to return to practice since suffering the injury. Leonard's absence boosts the tackle upside of LB Anthony Walker, who becomes a full-time player. DE Jabaal Sheard is questionable, however, for the 1st time this year. Sheard had knee surgery in early August and has been out since. Indy listed him as a limited participant in practice leading up the Week 3, but Sheard remained inactive. He continued to be limited this week but now officially has a chance to play. We wouldn't use Sheard in IDP lineups until we see about his snap count and readiness.

The Colts have ruled MLB Darius Leonard out for Sunday's game against the Falcons because of his concussion. Rookie Bobby Okereke expects to see increased playing time in Leonard's absence. LB Anthony Walker will likely lead the group in snaps.

Colts HC Frank Reich told reporters Monday that LB Darius Leonard developed concussion symptoms after Sunday's game against the Titans. Leonard is now in the league protocol and will need to pass through before he can play the Falcons on Sunday.

Colts DE Jabaal Sheard recently had knee surgery to address an unspecified injury that has kept him out for nearly all of training camp, Mike Chappell of Fox59 reports. Sheard took part in the team's 1st camp practice back on July 25 but has been sidelined since then. Indy has offered no timeline yet for his return. We'll watch for more details on Sheard's situation. Kemoko Turay and Al-Quadin Muhammad are the 2nd-team DEs, according to the team's initial "unofficial" depth chart.

ESPN's Adam Schefer reports that the Colts have agreed to a 2-year, $24 million deal with OLB Justin Houston. He joins a defense that couldn't get much going opposite Jabaal Sheard on the edge in 2018. Houston has missed 4+ games in 3 of the past 4 seasons and turned 30 in January. But he also racked up 18.5 sacks over the past 2 seasons and has averaged 0.85 sacks per contest since 2012, his 2nd year in the league. There's at least matchup-starter potential for Houston in pressure-friendly IDP leagues. His value could get a major boost, however, if the move nets Houston DE/DL eligibility

S Clayton Geathers has re-signed with the Colts on a 1-year deal, after visiting the Bucs and Cowboys as a free agent. Geathers missed 4 games last season while dealing with a neck injury and concussion but tells the team website he's now "back healthy, looking good, feeling good." A healthy Geathers has been a starting-level IDP and should continue to be so in the same defense.
