  • Colts' Nick Cross: Impresses in Year 2

    Cross racked up 39 tackles (24 solo), two pass breakups and one interception across 17 regular-season games with the Colts in 2023. Cross began his sophomore season playing mostly on special teams, but he increased his role on defense after Indianapolis' bye in Week 11, then stepped into a starting role for the final three games of the season due to an injury to Julian Blackmon (shoulder). Blackmon is now slated for free agency, so there's a possible path for Cross to take on a larger defensive role during the 2024 campaign, especially considering that he performed solidly in limited action in 2023.

  • Colts' Nick Cross: Taking on starting role

    Cross will take over as a starting safety due to Julian Blackmon (shoulder) being moved to Indianapolis' injured reserve list, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports. Blackmon won't be eligible to come back until the week of the AFC Championship at the earliest, so Cross will likely start for the Colts from here on out. In 55 snaps Sunday at Atlanta, he recorded five tackles (four solo).

  • Colts' Nick Cross: Loses starting role

    Cross played just one snap on defense and five snaps on special teams in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Chiefs. Cross, a third-round 2022 draft pick, began the season as the starter at strong safety and played on every defensive snap Week 1. However, he was replaced by Rodney McLeod as a starter. It looks like Cross may be stuck on the bench while being developed. However, he could be more of a factor Week 4 if Julian Blackmon missed time with a sprained ankle.

  • Colts' Nick Cross: Starts at strong safety

    Cross started at strong safety and had four tackles in Sunday's overtime tie at Houston. Cross, a third-round 2022 draft pick, was thrust into a larger role after the surprise retirement of Khari Willis. He held his own in pass coverage, as he allowed all three passes thrown his way to be completed but gave up just 18 total yards, according to Pro Football Focus.
