Rogers had a more prominent role in the season finale with Donte Moncrief out with a shoulder injury. Rogers went from an undrafted free agent to climb to the No. 4 receiver role while also taking over as the team's punt returner. With Phillip Dorsett having a disappointing season, Rogers could contend for a larger role in training camp next season.
Bostic last played in a game while with the Patriots in 2015. He spent 2016 with the Lions but wound up on injured reserve prior to the start of the regular season. He'll compete for a depth linebacker and special teams role with the Colts in 2017.
Williamson, who went undrafted out of Vanderbilt in 2016, suffered an unspecified knee injury over the summer and reverted to IR after being waived/injured by the Colts. While the exact nature of his injury isn't clear, and neither is his current state of health, Williamson still has another two years left on his current contract and will likely be back in Indianapolis for the start of the 2017 campaign.
Jones was due to count over $7 million against the cap this season, which was unpalatable for someone that played in just 17 games over the past three seasons. The 30-year-old will now look to land elsewhere and get healthy ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Hailing from Wisconsin-Eau Claire of the Division III ranks, Cage went undrafted in 2016 only to sign with the Colts later on. However, he went down with an undisclosed injury in June and was waived/injured by the team in short order. He ultimately cleared waivers and spent the entire season on IR. While it isn't clear if he's still hampered by the injury, look for Cage to return to Indianapolis in 2017 as he still has another two years left on his contract.
Castonzo has been a starter for Indianapolis since entering the league in 2011.
Mewhort was getting these reps due to Gosder Cherilus unavailable. Mewhort entered the league as a left guard.
"Versatility is hard to find," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "So obviously him playing a bunch of spots and playing everywhere along the line is definitely the more you can do. I think everybody is well aware of that spot and us trying to fill that hole right now. I'm fully confident that we've got the guys in this building right now that we're going to be fine there."
Melvin's absence Sunday leaves the Colts secondary even thinner as they match up against an inconsistent Jaguars passing attack. He ends the season with a solid 60 tackles (52 solo) and two forced fumbles. In his absence Sunday, Christopher Milton, Darryl Morris and Charles James could all see added playing time.
Cole's season looked over after a back injury placed him on injured reserve after Week 3, but he's been a productive rotation at rush linebacker. He played a season-high 46 snaps in Sunday's loss. It was just his fourth sack in 18 games since joining the Colts.
Swoope had just 15 receptions, 297 yards, and one touchdown in 2016, but he's poised for a larger role in the Colts' offense this year. With Dwayne Allen gone, Swoope will share the tight end duties with Jack Doyle in an offense that is ripe with two-TE formations.
Hankins' deal reportedly includes $14.5 million in guaranteed money. The talented defensive lineman was arguably the best defensive player left in free agency, and while the Colts were originally unlikely to sign him, they eventually decided they were willing to pay him the type money he has wanted for the past couple of months. As a player, Hankins should provide a major boost for the Colts' run defense, which was a bottom-10 group in 2016.
Undrafted rookie Josh Ferguson handled most of the passing-down work early last season, catching 19 balls in his first five games but then adding just one more reception the rest of the year. Turbin and Frank Gore were the only running backs involved in the offense after Week 5, with the former serving as the clear backup to the latter while also handling a sizable chunk of the passing-down snaps. Although the Colts probably want to lighten Gore's workload in his age-34 season, Turbin won't necessarily have a larger role in the offense, as he'll likely have to compete with Ferguson and at least one rookie. Turbin re-signed with the Colts this offseason on a modest two-year, $2.7 million contract that could be worth up to $4 million with incentives. The deal suggests he could ultimately be resigned to No. 3 status on the depth chart -- especially if the Colts select Gore's eventual replacement in the draft.
Morris suffered a hip contusion earlier in the contest, but was ultimately able to return as he'll get plenty of snaps at cornerback moving forward.
Smith was promoted to the active roster a little less than a month ago, but failed to record a reception in two games with the team. He'll now hit the free agent market in hopes of finding his way onto a 53-man roster or practice squad.
Todman got some carries late in a blowout win. He's clearly third on the depth chart and doesn't get many snaps on offense.
Woods spent his last three seasons with the Titans, racking up 66 combined tackles while plugging holes along the defensive line. The Colts were 25th in opponent rushing yards per game in 2016, so Woods should provide a nice boost for their run defense going forward.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound safety had 59 tackles (50) in only nine games last season, eventually landing on injured reserve with a concussion and a neck injury. Assuming his health checks out, Geathers could get a look at inside linebacker, which stands as one of the glaring weaknesses on Indy's roster. He'd probably only play linebacker in sub packages while staying at safety in the team's base defense, but such a role would still give him triple-digit tackle upside.
Mingo spent last season on the Patriots after being traded from the Browns last August. The former sixth-overall pick had just 11 tackles while playing in all 16 regular season games. He'll likely be a backup linebacker for the Colts in 2017.
Bray was near the bottom of the Colts' receiver depth chart last season before injuring his ankle and ending the year on injured reserve. He'll compete for return duties in 2017 and could work his way up the depth chart as well.
Hilton topped the 90-yard mark eight times this season, including four times in the last five games. Quarterback Andrew Luck's favorite target finishes the 2016 campaign with 91 catches for 1,448 yards and six touchdowns. The former two numbers represent new career highs for the fifth-year speedster.
Williams' vacant roster spot opens the door for fellow cornerback Darryl Morris to be re-signed and provide the Colts' secondary with additional depth.
Morrison played 49 of 67 snaps on defense as it looks like he'll get the bulk of playing time at inside linebacker while D'Qwell Jackson is out another three games after a PED suspension.
Jackson had a nice season for the Colts before being suspended for its final four games due to a violation of the NFL's performance enhancing substances policy, racking up 78 combined tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles. The veteran inside linebacker would have been owed $5.5 million of non-guaranteed money in 2017 had the Colts kept him, so it is not necessarily surprising to see him released, especially taking the recent suspension into consideration. Jackson is now entering his eleventh season, but still appears to have plenty of gas left in the tank and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.
The Colts need depth with Clayton Geathers placed on injured reserve with a neck injury. Williams played nine games with the Bills this season, but had just four tackles. He'll likely have a limited role with Indianapolis.
Edwards played in five games for the Colts this season after being claimed off waivers in mid-October, totaling four tackles and a sack in limited action. However, he's been inactive in each of the past two contests and appears to have fallen out of favor in Indianapolis. Fellow outside linebacker and second-year player Deiontrez Mount was signed in a corresponding move.
Moncrief did most of his damage in the red zone during an injury-plagued 2016 season, catching 30 passes for 307 yards and seven touchdowns in only nine games. His size (6-foot-2, 220 pounds) makes him a seemingly ideal complement to speedy No. 1 wideout T.Y. Hilton, but the Colts would like Moncrief to have a bigger impact between the 20-yard lines, perhaps emerging as a primary chain-moving target for Andrew Luck. The big-bodied wideout figures to be back at full strength before training camp as he prepares for the fourth and final season of his rookie contract.
Doyle's status as the top dog was confirmed without question when the Colts traded Dwayne Allen to the Patriots shortly after signing Doyle to a sizable three-year contract. The Indy offense has always made heavy use of tight ends with Andrew Luck under center, and the team is now left with just Erik Swoope behind Doyle on the depth chart. More help is likely coming through free agency and/or the draft, but everything is in place for Doyle to play a huge role in the Colts' 2017 passing game.
Luck had surgery in January to repair what Colts owner Jim Irsay called a "slightly torn labrum" in his throwing shoulder. While it was speculated that Luck was playing through some discomfort, just how long he'd been doing so wasn't fully disclosed until Monday. Despite an abdomen/kidney complication ultimately ending his 2015 season after seven games, Luck and the Colts decided rehab would be the best way to handle his shoulder going into 2016. Although Luck went on to play 15 games, he was a regular on the Colts' injury reports throughout the year, and his subsequent surgery helped explain some of his inconsistencies. Now that the full story is known and Luck's problem has been fixed, fantasy owners can look forward to him being uninhibited this season, even though it wouldn't be surprising if the Colts limit his involvement during the early stages of their preparations.
The severity of McGill's injury wasn't specified, but he will have ample time to recover from this issue in the offseason with the Colts out of playoff contention.
A versatile defender who can line up at both outside linebacker and defensive end, Sheard churned out 70 tackles and 13 sacks across 28 games for the Patriots the past two seasons. He'll now look to compete for a starting role with the Colts.
Depending on how early in the draft Indianapolis addresses its backfield, Gore could be looking at immediate competition for carries. A first- or second-round selection would be expected to contribute immediately, potentially even posing a threat to Gore's grasp on the lead job. On the other hand, a middle-round draft pick might be viewed as more of a developmental project, with eyes on grooming him for 2018 and beyond. Set to turn 34 just two weeks after the draft, Gore is entering the final season of his three-year contract, coming off back-to-back campaigns in which he fell shy of four yards per carry. He was still a useful part of the Indianapolis offense last season, contributing 1,302 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns while also providing a steady presence in pass protection. The Colts don't have much talent behind him, with Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson rounding out the depth chart.
It isn't clear how long Green could be on the shelf, but his injury doesn't appear to be serious so he should be ready to go in time for OTAs.
Haeg suffered an ankle injury at practice this week and wasn't able to recover in time for Week 1's game. At this point it looks as if he will be week-to-week, and once he is back he will move into a backup role along the Colts' offensive line.
T.Y Hilton and Donte Moncrief are locked in at the top, but with 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett shaping up as a disappointment, the rest of the Indianapolis wideout depth chart should be up for grabs. Aiken had to settle for a one-year deal in the wake of a disappointing 2016 season, but he did catch 75 passes for 944 yards in 2015 while serving as Baltimore's No. 1 receiver for much of the year. The Andrew Luck-led Colts could give the 27-year-old a real shot to get his career back on track, as Moncrief's injury history and Dorsett's poor performance leave the team without reliable pass-catching options behind Hilton.
Langford was restricted to just 10 tackles in seven games last season due to lingering symptoms from surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his knee. Although the defensive end is still going through rehab, Langford guaranteed he'd be ready for camp, which would bode well for his availability ahead of the regular season. In his first season with the Colts in 2015, Langford tied for the team lead with seven sacks.
Tolzien turned in a solid effort in what was his first start in exactly three years, but a combination of factors helped derail any chances of a victory. The 29-year-old was victimized by drops on several occasions and also saw T.Y. Hilton go down with a back injury on a hit deep down the middle after a drop. Tolzien also came up short of the goal line on third-down scrambles on two separate occasions, and then couldn't connect with his receivers on the subsequent fourth-down play in either instance. Luck could well be back from the Colts' Week 13 road match-up versus the Jets, but if he's unable to be cleared in time, Tolzien certainly showed enough Thursday to be considered a fairly sneaky, albeit somewhat desperate, fantasy option against New York's vulnerable secondary with 10 days of prep time.
Even if the Colts hadn't signed Aiken, it's quite likely Dorsett would've faced competition from Chester Rogers, Quan Bray (ankle) and/or a draft pick. Simply put, the 2015 first-round selection hasn't developed as expected through two seasons, catching 51 passes for 753 yards and three touchdowns in 26 games. Dorsett did manage efficient marks of 16.0 yards per catch and 8.8 yards per target last season, but he only drew four targets per game in an Indianapolis offense that badly needed someone to step up while Donte Moncrief (56 targets in nine games) was injured. Dorsett has yet to prove he's anything more than an occasional deep threat.
Mathis will play one final game Sunday against Jacksonville. He has four sacks this season and 122 career sacks along with five Pro Bowl appearances.
Walden had a career high 11 sacks as he became the clear leader of Indy's pass rush. His career year came at the right time as he's set to be a free agent. However, he never had six sacks prior to this year and was never seen as a pass rush specialist.
Overton tweeted on his personal account that he will be with the Colts for another four years. In three seasons with the Colts, Overton has appeared in 48 games and has made 22 special teams tackles.
He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013.
A 2012 third-round selection, Spence has started 19 of his 46 regular-season games, recording 144 tackles (100 solo) and five sacks. He's never locked down a role as an every-week starter, but he could get that opportunity with an Indianapolis team that has a clear weakness at inside linebacker.
Jackson took over as a starter at inside linebacker after several injuries and suspensions. He averaged 6.6 tackles per game over his last five games after getting more playing time and put himself in a position to contend for a starting job next season.
The specifics of his injury remain veiled. Nonetheless, Thompson is now free to sign with another organization.
It was Ferguson's first carries since Week 5 as he got some playing time late in a blowout win. Ferguson had a regular role in the passing game to begin the season (19 receptions in the first give games), but hasn't played much since with just one reception and no carries in his previous six games. It's not likely Monday's performance earns him a significant role like he had early in the season.
Mitchel has struggled with injuries throughout his young NFL career. In 2015 he missed the entire season due to a torn left labrum. The cornerback then suffered a hamstring injury in the Colts' third preseason game this past season, resulting in his release from the team. He was brought back to the practice squad in Week 8, so he has plenty of experience with the team's personnel.
Butler asked to play safety more as the 2016 season wore on, and he'll remain there for the foreseeable future. He's expected to start alongside Clayton Geathers (neck) or T.J. Green (shoulder) in the back end of the defense next season.
Suspicion of Davis' game status grew after the corner logged a limited practice Thursday, but he ended the week with full sessions both Friday and Saturday. Barring a setback prior to kickoff, Davis will be ready to play.
Ayers played just 19 snaps, but his production could earn him more playing time.
After signing defensive end Chris Long earlier in the day, the Eagles continue to add veteran playmakers to their defense as Robinson heads to Philadelphia after spending last season with the Colts. The cornerback was limited throughout last season due to a groin injury but still managed to record 26 tackles, five pass deflections and one forced fumble in seven games (six starts). Robinson should secure a starting role in an otherwise young Eagles secondary as long as he can remain healthy.
Mount (6-5, 249) is a 2015 sixth-rounder from Louisville who spent his rookie season with the Titans, but only lasted four games before landing on IR and was ultimately cut in August. He's resided on the Colts' practice squad since. Now on the active roster, he looks to provide depth at outside linebacker and contribute on special teams.
In three games with the Colts earlier this season, Street caught one pass for 20 yards. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder will add depth to the Colts' wideout corps, but it would take a rash of injuries for him to surface on the fantasy radar.
Simon joins his former division rival after spending the past three seasons in Houston. He recorded 51 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two pass deflections, and one forced fumble through 11 games with the Texans last season. Simon will now look to compete with Akeem Ayers and Curt Maggitt for a starting role at outside linebacker.
Ridgeway, a fourth-rounder out of Texas, missed Thursday's practice but was back to being a full participant Saturday. He projects to rotate in behind starter Henry Anderson.
Hunt has been a disappointment in the league since the Bengals selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft, but the native Estonian emerged as a serviceable run defender this past season, albeit in a limited role. Now in Indy, he merely projects to serve as depth along the defensive line.
Parry plead guilty to one count of attempted unlawful means of transportation and one count of disorderly conduct, avoiding jail time in the process. Having said that, he's scheduled for sentencing on May 31, when the terms of his probation will be determined. In addition to the aforementioned charges, he still faces a DUI charge in Scottsdale, Ari. City Court, potentially augmenting his legal woes. Once the process has played itself out, Parry will likely be subject to a fine and/or suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Vinatieri, playing at 43 years old the majority of the season, tied for the sixth-best field goal percentage in the league at 87.1 percent. He was one of the few kickers to not miss an extra point throughout the year, too, and was a fantastic 7-for-9 on kicks longer than 50 yards. Set to return for the Colts in 2017, Vinatieri is yet to show any signs of slowing down his Hall of Fame career.
Williams arrives in Indianapolis after the team traded tight end Dwayne Allen earlier this offseason. With only Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope remaining at the position, Williams adds depth to the Colts' options, even though his four-year totals of six receptions for 80 yards are rather uninspiring.
Maggitt injured his knee Sunday against the Texans. While the details surrounding his injury still aren't clear, its evidently severe enough to bring Maggitt's season to a close. He'll finish the 2016 campaign with seven tackles, including three solo.
