Newsome will start at outside linebacker with Erik Walden (foot) inactive against Jacksonville, the Indianapolis Star reports. Newsome will see an increase in snaps, but he has just one sack this season after leading the Colts with 6.5 sacks last year.
Newsome was a healthy scratch in Sunday's loss to New Orleans, the Indianapolis Star reports. Newsome led the Colts in sacks last season with 6.5 but had just one through the first five games.
Newsome had three tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss at New England. It was Newsome's first sack of the season. He had 6.5 sacks in a surprising rookie season last year, so hopefully this outing gets him back on track.
The Colts signed outside linebacker Jonathan Newsome, a fifth-round pick out of Ball State. Newsome spent his first two seasons at Ohio State before transferring.
The Colts selected linebacker Jonathan Newsome from Ball State with the 166th pick in the draft Saturday. Newsome has 64 tackles and eight sacks as a senior for Ball State, and finished his two-year career with 16 1/2 sacks, finishing third in the MAC both seasons.
