Clayton Geathers Injury Updates

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.

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 (neck) and DE Jabaal Sheard (abdomen) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Geathers put in a full practice Wednesday before sitting out the next 2 days. He has followed odd practice schedules for weeks, whether active or inactive come Sunday. We'll have to check on his status Sunday afternoon (barring earlier word). If Geathers can't go, S Mike Mitchell will make for a solid IDP starting option in his place. Sheard's injury lacks clarity. He popped up on Thursday's report as "did not practice" but then returned to full participation Friday. We'll see about his status Sunday afternoon as well but would anticipate Sheard being in the lineup.

Colts S Clayton Geathers left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Patriots and did not return. The team eventually ruled him out with a concussion and a neck injury. That, however, followed Indy initially saying he cleared the concussion protocol and deeming his return "questionable." We'll see about Geathers' status heading into Week 6. Matthias Farley stepped in and grabbed a 3rd-quarter INT.

Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. He entered the night questionable, just like he had the past 2 weeks. Elsewhere on the Colts D, CB Nate Hairston (ankle) is active but not playing. Fellow CB Kenny Moore had already been ruled out. Neither corner is much of an IDP option when healthy, but all the injuries can only help New England's passing outlook.

Colts S Clayton Geathers is active for today's game against the Eagles. He entered the day questionable with knee and elbow injuries but is OK for normal usage in IDP lineups.

Colts S Clayton Geathers is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He's listed with knee and elbow injuries. Geathers returned to a full practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. But then he missed Friday's workout as well. We'll see about his status Sunday.

The Colts expect S Clayton Geathers to make his 2017 debut Sunday against the Titans, according to ESPN's Mike Wells. The team reportedly plans to have the former starter on a "pitch count" after a little more than a year off for a neck injury he suffered last year against Tennessee. But we wouldn't be surprised if Geathers works his way back toward starter-level snaps soon. HC Chuck Pagano said Geathers still "knows the defense inside and out" and that he has looked good in practice in recent weeks.

The Colts will be placing S Clayton Geathers (neck) on the PUP list to open the regular season, ESPN reports. That will cost the 3rd-year safety at least the 1st 6 games. Geathers finished 2016 on IR because of a neck injury that eventually required surgery in March. He has yet to return to the field. A decision this early to put him on the PUP casts some doubt on whether Geathers will be available at all in 2017. And the fact that it's a neck issue looks worrisome for his outlook beyond the coming season. Needless to say, we've knocked him way down the 2017 IDP rankings. And he has tumbled down our dynasty IDP rankings as well. Converted CB Darius Butler is the early favorite to start with rookie S Malik Hooker. We'll see whether 2016 rookie T.J. Green enters the mix.

The Colts on Monday placed S Clayton Geathers on IR with the neck injury that cost him the past 3 games. Indy signed former Bills S Duke Williams to fill the roster spot. Rookie S T.J. Green has played a minimal role even with Geathers out, as the Colts have started 3 CBs. Mike Adams is the only full-time safety and the only IDP consideration at the position for the team. Geathers was on a roll stat wise before his injury and will carry plenty of fantasy intrigue into next season.

The Colts have ruled S Clayton Geathers out with the neck injury that cost him Week 13.

The Colts have ruled S Clayton Geathers (concussion, neck) and OLB Robert Mathis (biceps) out for Monday night's game against the Jets. Geathers had practiced in full Wednesday but sat out Thursday. He was reportedly set to see a neurologist Friday afternoon in the final step of the concussion protocol but is clearly not ready to play between the 2 injuries. We'll see about his status next week. Mathis hasn't been an IDP option this season anyway, and the Colts hold little appeal as a fantasy team D.

According to multiple reports, Colts HC Chuck Pagano on Monday called S Mike Adams day-to-day with his ankle injury. That means we'll need to watch the practice reports this week to see if Adams can return for a Sunday night trip to Pittsburgh. If he doesn't, then rookie Clayton Geathers would start again and be a solid bet for tackles against a busy Pittsburgh offense.
