Butler had one tackle in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Pittsburgh while playing 49 snaps at free safety. Butler has moved into a more prominent role with Malik Hooker out for the season with a knee injury, as he's splitting playing time with T.J. Green opposite Matthias Farley. However, Butler hasn't been a prodigious tackler in his career, which limits his IDP value.
Butler (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. With Butler's ankle issue not proving to be an overwhelming concern, he'll be able to suit up in Week 8 and compete with T.J. Green (hamstring) for reps at safety with Malik Hooker (knee) out for the season. While it's unclear who will start alongside Matthias Farley at safety Sunday, both Butler and Green should be in line for substantial defensive snaps with the Colts also missing cornerback Rashaan Melvin (concussion) from their secondary.
Butler (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns. Butler was limited in practice throughout the week after being inactive in Week 2, leading to his questionable status heading into Sunday's game. Butler is the only active safety on the Colts' roster behind starters Matthias Farley and Malik Hooker.
Butler (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports. Butler recorded three tackles in Week 1 against the Rams, but 2017 first-round pick Malik Hooker will take over at free safety in Week 2. If Butler can get healthy soon, he'll be slated for more starts, since Clayton Geathers (neck) is out through Week 6.
Butler started at free safety and had three tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Butler has permanently moved from cornerback to safety after switching between the positions last season. He played 53 snaps and should provide a steady veteran presence in an inexperienced secondary without injured Vontae Davis.
