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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

The Colts have ruled S Khari Willis (concussion) out for Thursday night's game against the Texans. That should mean more time for Clayton Geathers back on the field, but Indianapolis has limited his playing time at every turn. S George Odum figures to split snaps with him to some degree. CB Rock Ya-Sin (ankle) is questionable vs. Houston. We'll update his status Thursday evening.
