  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Will play Sunday

    Thomas (knee) is active Sunday against the Panthers.

    Thomas was a late addition to the team's injury report, not appearing there until Friday. However, the second-year pro is well enough to take the field in Week 9 and should continue to start at free safety.

  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Questionable Week 9

    Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    Thomas did not appear on the Colts' injury report Wednesday or Thursday before popping up with a knee issue Friday. However, the 25-year-old was still a full participant Friday, so it appears the injury may not be all that serious. Thomas has recorded 22 tackles, three passes defended and an interception across eight games as Indianapolis' starting free safety this season.

  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Three tackles in loss

    Thomas started at strong safety and had three total tackles in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.

    Thomas was a revelation for a struggling Colts secondary last season as he moved into the starting lineup. He missed time with a toe injury during training camp, but looks fully healthy. He and fellow starting safety Julian Blackmon played all of the defense's 70 snaps at safety against the Jaguars.

  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Returns to practice

    Thomas (toe) returned to practice Tuesday, the Indianapolis Star reports.

    Thomas was a revelation for a struggling Colts secondary last season as he moved into the starting lineup where he is expected to remain in 2023 alongside fellow safety Julian Blackmon. His toe injury sounds minor, but monitor his status the next week or two.

  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Sitting with injury

    Thomas is not practicing Tuesday due to a toe injury, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    It's unclear how long Thomas may need to be sidelined, but any kind of extended absence would be detrimental to the Colts' secondary. He'll now focus on getting healthy and back out onto the practice field.

  • Colts' Rodney Thomas: Seven stops in blowout loss

    Thomas recorded seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 38-10 defeat to the Giants.

    Thomas matched his season high for tackles while playing all but six of the Colts' 63 defensive snaps Week 18. The rookie seventh-round pick has played in a very prominent role in the team's secondary with nickel cornerback Kenny Moore (ankle) sidelined over the past four games. As a result, Thomas has recorded 20 tackles and three passes defended, including two interceptions, over this span. He should have a chance to continue adding to this strong end to his rookie season Week 18 against Houston.

    Thomas had one total tackle but played on all 59 of the defense's snaps in Sunday's loss at Tennessee.

    Thomas got the start at free safety even with Julian Blackmon active and playing 21 snaps. It's not clear if Thomas has overtaken Blackmon for the starting job or if Blackmon is just working his way back to full speed after not playing for three games due to an ankle injury.
