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.
Butler (head) will remain at safety after changing positions during the 2016 season, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports. 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.
Butler (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports. Butler has not yet passed the league's concussion protocol and will therefore be forced to miss the Colts' season finale. He'll end the 2016 season with 33 tackles, seven passes defensed, three interceptions, and one forced fumble. Expect Vontae Davis and Christopher Milton to see expanded roles with Butler sidelined.
Butler (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday. Butler entered the concussion protocol after Saturday's game against the Raiders and he's a tough road ahead as he looks to return for the Colts' season finale in Week 17. His ability to practice the rest of the week will provide a better indication of his status for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
