Hooker done for season | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Colts S Malik Hooker suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That will end the 1st-round pick's rookie season. We'll see if it also threatens the start of his 2nd year. Hooker grabbed 3 INTs among his 5 games as a starter.

Recent Shark Bites

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

The Colts expect to get FS Malik Hooker on the game field Saturday for the 1st time since he suffered an ACL tear last October. According to the team website, HC Frank Reich said Hooker had a "good solid week last week" in practice. A healthy Hooker is likely the FS starter. Clayton Geathers filled in against the Ravens on Monday. In the 1st preseason game -- with Geathers also out -- it was T.J. Moore. Matthias Farley has been manning the SS spot. Hooker, a 1st-round pick in 2017, nabbed 7 INTs in his final season at Ohio State and would help the defense's turnover potential.

The Colts picked Ohio State S Malik Hooker in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. Hooker should claim a starting job right away, with Mike Adams having left for Carolina. We'd bet on him starting next to Clayton Geathers soon, with Geathers the much better IDP option.
