  • Colts' Khari Willis: Only 11 appearances in 2021

    Willis recorded 63 tackles (43 solo), 1.5 sacks, five pass breakups, two interceptions and one fumble recovery across 11 games in 2021.

    Willis missed a total of six games this season due to groin and calf injuries, plus a stint in the league's COVID-19 protocols. When healthy, Willis did handle a starting role, providing modest value in IDP formats due to his tackle numbers. The 25-year-old is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract with Indianapolis during the 2022 season.

  • Colts' Khari Willis: Activated from COVID-19 list

  • Colts' Khari Willis: Heading to COVID-19 list

    The Colts placed Willis (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    Per Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston, all 18 players that landed on the COVID-19 list Saturday tested positive for the virus. Willis thus will sit out Saturday's game in Arizona and also may be in danger sitting out Week 17 versus the Raiders. With Andrew Sendejo (concussion) also sidelined, the Colts will be down to Jahleel Addae, George Odum and practice squad call-up Will Redmond at safety Saturday.
