Sheard made four tackles (two solo) and one sack during Saturday's 31-13 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs. He finishes the regular season with 50 tackles, 5.5 sacks and four passes defended.
Sheard started all 16 regular season games in 2018, and managed to successfully transition from outside linebacker to defensive end. The 29-year-old has only missed seven regular-season contests since entering the NFL in 2011, and remains a valuable pillar of reliability in Indianapolis' 4-3 defense. Sheard has one year remaining on his contract with the Colts.
Sheard (knee) is active for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Texans.
Sheard was unable to participate in Thursday's practice after limited sessions the few days prior. That seemed to indicate he was trending in the wrong direction, but it now looks like the Colts were just exercising caution with him. Assuming he avoids a setback, he figures to resume his responsibilities as a starting defensive end.
Sheard (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans.
Sheard did not practice Thursday after having been a limited participant Tuesday and Wednesday. If the 29-year-old is able to play through his knee injury versus the Texans, he'll draw his usual start at defensive end.
Sheard has knee and teeth issues and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Sheard started the week as a limited practice participant but was unable to partake in practice Friday at all. The 29-year-old appears to be trending in the wrong direction, with Al-Quadin Muahammad the likely benefactor should he be sidelined Sunday.
