Colts ILB D'Qwell Jackson suffered a concussion in Monday night's win over the Jets. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before playing against Houston on Sunday. Having a day less than usual certainly won't help. IDP owners should plan to have someone else in the lineup. Rookie Edwin Jackson will gain further tackle upside if the veteran sits.
The Colts on Thursday released veteran LB D'Qwell Jackson, who finished the season on a drug suspension. As it stands, 2016 rookies Edwin Jackson and Antonio Morrison look like the leading candidates to start at ILB for Indy in 2017. Of course, we have yet to hit free agency or the NFL Draft
Turns out it won't matter whether LB D'Qwell Jackson's concussion is better by Sunday (at least for his playing status). The league suspended him 4 games for violating the PED policy, which will sideline him for the rest of the season. That leaves rookie Edwin Jackson as the only usable Colts LB in most leagues and further depletes an already weak defense. We'll see if the 33-year-old sticks around for 2017.
Colts ILB D'Qwell Jackson has been found guilty of simple assault for a February 2015 incident. Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports that Jackson turned down a plea deal and will now face April 6 sentencing for the misdemeanor. He could get up to 180 days in jail. Jackson might also be subject to league discipline. We'll see if he loses any 2016 games.
As expected, Colts ILB D'Qwell Jackson (quad) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. Use him as you normally would in your IDP lineup for a high-ceiling matchup with teammate ILB Jerrell Freeman out.
Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson (quad) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, but it sounds like he'll play. HC Chuck Pagano told Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star: "You know D'Qwell, I know D'Qwell. He's gonna play." So lock him into your IDP lineup unless he shows up inactive.
