  • Colts' Julian Blackmon: Unclear role against Tennessee

    Blackmon is active for Sunday's game against Tennessee, but it is not clear if he will play, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    Blackmon was active in last week's win over Jacksonville but did not play as he was on the sidelines only in case of an emergency.

  • Colts' Julian Blackmon: Active, but doesn't play

    Blackmon was active in Sunday's win over Jacksonville but did not play as he was on the sidelines only in case of an emergency, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Frank Reich said he wasn't ready to play but at the same time had him active. It would appear that Blackmon will be ready to return next week against Tennessee, but it may be best to see him in action again before using him for fantasy purposes. Rodney Thomas got the start with Blackmon held out.

  • Colts' Julian Blackmon: Questionable for Sunday

    Blackmon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville.

    Blackmon has missed back-to-back games due to an ankle sprain, but he returned to practice ahead of Week 6, logging two limited sessions and one full participation (Thursday).

  • Colts' Julian Blackmon: Upgrades to full participant

    Blackmon (ankle) practiced in full Thursday.

    Blackmon missed the team's last two contests due to an ankle sprain, but his ability to log a full practice Thursday suggests he's ready to return for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. With the 24-year-old more than likely to reclaim his starting spot this weekend, Rodney Thomas is slated to revert back to a depth role for the Colts' secondary.

  • Colts' Julian Blackmon: Struggles in season opener

    Blackmon started at free safety and had one tackle in Sunday's tie at Houston.

    Blackmon struggled in pass coverage by allowing completions on all three passes targeted his way for 69 yards and a touchdown, according to Pro Football Focus. Blackmon emerged as a key piece in the secondary last season with 34 tackles (27 solo), a pass breakup and a forced fumble through the team's first six games game before suffering a season-ending torn Achilles in practice after Week 7.
