Indianapolis Colts Injury Updates

Colts LB Darius Leonard returned to full practices Thursday and Friday and finished the week off the injury report. So he should be good to go for IDP lineups in Week 17. S Khari Willis (shoulder) is doubtful after missing practice all week. CB Kenny Moore (ankle) returned to limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days and is questionable for the game against Jacksonville. Moore makes for a shaky bet after missing the past 3 games.

The Colts have several defensive starters who sat out practice Wednesday and will bear watching this week. LB Darius Leonard (back) joined the injury report after not appearing on it last week. CB Kenny Moore remained out with the ankle injury that cost him the previous 3 games. DL Denico Autry remained out with the concussion that kept him out of Week 16. S Khari Willis (shoulder) sustained his injury in Sunday's win over the Panthers. All will bear watching on the IDP front, and their statuses could impact the outlook for the Indy team defense against the Jaguars on Sunday. With both teams playing for nothing this week, don't be surprised if Indy deactivates any starters with even minor injury questions

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
