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.
Colts S Malik Hooker is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves Indy without its deep cover man against a pass offense plenty capable of exploiting the deficiency. Potential replacement Mike Mitchell is also out. DT Denico Autry is active after entering the day questionable
Colts S Malik Hooker (foot) and DT Denico Autry (shoulder) are questionable for today's game against the Chiefs. Hooker's absence, in particular, would be tough on an Indy secondary that will already be stressed by the league's top offense.
Colts S Clayton Geathers and DE Jabaal Sheard are active for today’s game against the Texans. Both entered the day questionable
Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans. Geathers, though, got back to his usual practice schedule of missed workouts sandwiching a full Wednesday practice. He missed the final 2 regular-season games. Sheard missed Thursday's practice but took part the previous 2 days. That matched last week, when he played through a questionable tag. We'll check their statuses Saturday afternoon.
Colts S Clayton Geathers is inactive for tonight's game against the Titans. It'll be the 2nd straight game he has missed with his injured knee. DE Jabaal Sheard is active, however. He arrived questionable with knee and "teeth" issues but is good for regular IDP usage.
Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Titans. Geathers missed practice all week after missing last week's game. The late kickoff means you can't wait for him in IDP lineups, if you were inclined to in the 1st place. Sheard sat out practice Friday and was listed with a "teeth" issue (whatever that means). He put in limited workouts the previous 2 days. Sheard matched his season high in playing time last week and seems like at least a solid bet to play. Of course, the late kickoff means you'll need to have an insurance option available if you plan to wait for him.
Colts LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. S Mike Mitchell (calf) is active after hitting the day questionable. He should start in place of the inactive S Clayton Geathers. Mitchell is an option but will carry risk for IDP owners.
The Colts have ruled S Clayton Geathers out for Sunday's game against the Giants because of a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. S Mike Mitchell remains behind Geathers on the depth chart -- after filling in at both safety spots earlier this week -- and would likely start in Geathers' place. Mitchell is questionable, though, with a calf issue that limited his practices Wednesday and Thursday. Mitchell returned to a full Friday workout and is an option if active, but he'll carry some downside risk.
Colts S Clayton Geathers is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He arrived questionable but looks fine for normal IDP usage. Geathers has been managing physical issues all season.
Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Geathers has for weeks been following odd practice schedules, often sitting out Wednesday and Friday workouts. Geathers put in just a limited practice Thursday this week, though. That marks the 1st time since Week 6 (which he missed) that Geathers finished the week without any full practices. He even put in 1 full practice in Week 7 before missing that game as well. We'll check Geathers' status Sunday morning.
