The 44 tackles set a new career high for Woods, who had never broken 30 tackles in a season before 2017. The 30-year-old nose tackle typically serves as a run-stopper and is unlikely to maintain a similar level of production with the Colts in 2018.
Woods was dealing with a knee injury but won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Woods was a late addition to the injury report this week, but he was able to return as a full practice participant Friday. Although the 30-year-old has started at nose tackle for the Colts this season, his 18 tackles (10 solo), one sack and reduced snap count give him limited fantasy appeal.
Woods started at nose tackle and had two tackles and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Despite an overall poor day from the Indy defense in a 46-9 loss. Woods fared well against the run as the Colts limited Todd Gurley to just 2.1 yards per carry. Woods won't produce many fantasy stats in his run-stuffing role, however.
