  • Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Part of DE rotation

    Odeyingbo didn't have a tackle but batted down a pass in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.

    Odeyingbo played on 35 of the defense's 70 snaps, as the Colts had a rotation among defensive ends. He didn't provide much pass rush, however, with no quarterback pressure stats.

  • Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Puts on weight in offseason

    Odeyingbo said Wednesday that he's up to 285 pounds and indicated that he can feel his Achilles getting stronger now that he's more than two years removed from tearing it, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    The Colts made Odeyingbo a second-round pick in April 2021, three months after he tore his Achilles' tendon while training for the draft. He played only 173 defensive snaps in 10 games as a rookie before progressing to 518 snaps (45.5 percent), 31 tackles and five sacks in 17 games last season. Odeyingbo, 2021 first-round pick Kwity Paye and offseason signee Samson Ebukam project to handle most of the snaps at defensive end for Indianapolis in 2023, but Odeyingbo could also get some interior snaps on passing downs, especially if he keeps his weight above 280.

  • Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Career high in tackles, sacks

    Odeyingbo recorded five tackles (four solo) and two sacks during Saturday's 39-26 loss to the Vikings.

    Despite having played just 47 percent of the Colts' defensive snaps Saturday versus Minnesota, Odeyingbo logged the first multi-sack performance of his career. The second-year defensive end also amassed a career-high five stops this past weekend, so he'll likely retain his usual rotational role on the team's defensive line when Indianapolis hosts the Chargers next Monday night.

  • Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Just four snaps in season opener

    Odeyingbo had one total tackle and played four snaps on defense in Sunday's tie at Houston.

    The Colts selected Odeyingbo in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 54th overall, despite him suffering a torn Achilles' tendon just a few months before the draft. He returned to play in 10 games last season, but he played just 167 snaps and had just six tackles. It looks like he'll begin the season far down the depth chart.

  • Colts' Dayo Odeyingbo: Placed on reserve/NFI list

    The Colts placed Odeyingbo (Achilles) on the reserve/non-football injury list to open the regular season, Joel Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

    This move was expected as Odeyingbo tore his Achilles while training for the NFL Draft. The 22-year-old will be inactive for at least the first six weeks of the season after being placed on the reserve/NFI list, but it remains to be seen if that is all the time that he will miss. The rookie wants to play this season, but the Colts will most likely be extremely cautious with their second-round pick.
