The Colts activated Autry (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. Autry was limited by an illness in his return to practice Thursday, but it seems like he has a solid chance of returning from his two-game absence during Sunday's tilt against the Texans. Over his last three appearances, Autry has notched four sacks.
Autry (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday and won't play Sunday against the Packers, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. While teams are not required to reveal whether players put on the list have the illness or were simply in close contact with someone who did, Autry missed practice Thursday due to an illness, so the former scenario seems to be the likely one for him. If that's the case, Autry will need to remain away from the team for 10 days after receiving a negative test, meaning he'll more than likely have to miss the Week 11 clash with Tennessee as well. All we know for now, though, is that he'll sit out against Green Bay, and there have been no other COVID-19 cases reported among Colts players at this time.
Autry (ankle) is active Week 6 against Cincinnati. Autry will join fellow defensive end Justin Houston (hip) on the active roster, giving the Colts nine healthy defensive linemen available for the home matchup. Autry is coming off his best statistical performance of the season, racking up a season-high seven combined tackles against the Browns.
Autry had two tackles, two sacks and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. Autry started at defensive end and played on 38 of the defense's 50 snaps. Autry took over a starting role at defensive end with Kemoko Turay on the PUP list and had an immediate impact. He had the most defensive snaps of any Colts defensive lineman.
Autry (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Autry will miss his second straight game due to this concussion. The 29-year-old had felt regression in the sack department, recording 3.5 after posting nine last year, but he still managed to accrue 17 quarterback pressures compared to 18 last season. Expect Tyquan Lewis and Margus Hunt to both enjoy upticks in usage in Autry's stead.
