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.

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 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.

The Colts have ruled S Clayton Geathers (concussion) out for Week 7. He participated in practice 2 of 3 days this week, so we'd bet on Geathers being ready for a Week 8 trip to Oakland. We'll check his status leading up to that one.
