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.

Recent Shark Bites

Colts DE Justin Houston (calf) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Houston missed practice both Thursday and Friday with the issue, so he'll likely be playing at less than 100%. There's some risk, though he remains in play for IDP lineups. CB Rock Ya-Sin is inactive, a surprise scratch after he didn't appear on the injury report all week. Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports that Ya-Sin has an illness (not COVID).

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

The Colts have ruled slot CB Kenny Moore (ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Saints. It'll be his 2nd straight missed game. CB Pierre Desir (groin) is questionable for the game. Desir was limited in practice Thursday and Friday but returned to full participation Saturday. If he's active, he'll carry bit IDP upside in likely shadow coverage on New Orleans WR Michael Thomas. If you need insurance to wait on Desir, check for Colts S Khari Willis, Colts CB Rock Ya-Sin, Saints S Marcus Williams or Saints CB Eli Apple on your waiver wire.

Colts S Malik Hooker (foot) and CB Rock Ya-Sin (ankle) are active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Neither is a high-level IDP, but there's upside to facing Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston.
