  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Tallies 8.5 sacks in 2023

    Paye notched 52 tackles (31 solo), 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 16 regular-season appearances in 2023.

    Paye solidified himself as one of the Colts' more exceptional defensive players in 2023, setting a new career-best sack threshold. The 2021 first-round pick could be a candidate to reach double-digit sacks with another year in defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's scheme, as Indianapolis' defense as a whole ranked fifth in the NFL with 51 sacks in 2023.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Logs sack in win

    Paye logged two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Indianapolis' 27-20 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Good to go for Week 12

    Paye is not on the Colts' injury report ahead of Sunday's Week 12 game versus Tampa Bay.

    Paye left the Week 10 win over the Patriots early due to a hamstring injury, but he appears to have recovered from the issue during Indianapolis' Week 11 bye. The defensive end thus appears set to suit up and start against the Buccaneers this Sunday. Paye has tallied 31 tackles (19 solo), including 4.5 sacks, over nine contests so far this season.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Will suit up at Jacksonville

    Paye (concussion) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at the Jaguars.

    Paye was a full participant at practice all week, so it's no big surprise that he's ready to return from the concussion he sustained in Week 4 versus the Rams. He'll probably start on Indianapolis' defensive line Sunday.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Logs full practice Wednesday

    Paye (concussion) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

    His full availability for practice would suggest he's on track to play Sunday, but there may still be outstanding steps for Paye to get through the league's concussion protocol. He sustained the concussion in Week 4, and he already had to sit out in Week 5.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Will sit out vs. Titans

    Paye (concussion) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus Tennessee, Stephen Holder of reports.

    Paye was unable to clear the league's concussion protocols this week after sustaining a blow to the head in Week 4 versus the Rams, so he'll spend Sunday on the sidelines as he continues to recover. Tyquan Lewis (knee) will probably be in line for extra work if he plays. Otherwise, Jake Martin could see an uptick in snaps in Week 5.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Enters protocols

    Paye entered the league's concussion protocols after suffering a head injury in Sunday's loss to the Rams, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Paye will now need to clear the league's five-step protocol to play in Week 5 against the Titans. If Paye is unable to suit up, Dayo Odeyingbo and Tyquan Lewis will be the most likely candidates to see extra snaps when the team hosts Tennessee.
