  • Colts' Bobby Okereke: Finishes with 132 tackles

    Okereke tallied 132 tackles (89 solo), four pass deflections, two interceptions and one sack in 17 appearances during the 2021 campaign.

    Okereke appeared in every game and nearly played every single defensive snap during the Colts' up-and-down campaign. He recorded double-digit tackles in four games en route to his first ever season with 100-plus tackles. The 25-year-old has one year remaining on his rookie contract, so he's expected to be back in the middle of Indianapolis' defense next year, which should mean he'll be a consistent producer in IDP leagues once again.

  • Colts' Bobby Okereke: Ready to go

    Okereke does not have an injury designation for Saturday's game against New England.

    Okereke was unable to practice to start the week due to an illness, though he returned for a full session Thursday.

Across 13 games this season, Okereke has recorded 107 tackles, three passes defended, one sack and one interception.

  • Colts' Bobby Okereke: Absent from practice Tuesday

    Okereke (illness) did not participate at Tuesday's practice.

    The middle linebacker popped up on the injury report Tuesday, missing practice with a non-COVID illness. With the Colts' next game coming Saturday versus the Patriots, Okereke's participation in the coming days is worth monitoring. If he can't go in Week 15, E.J. Speed and Matthew Adams would likely step into larger roles at linebacker.
