Castonzo (ankle) announced his retirement Tuesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
The 32-year-old contemplated retirement last offseason before re-signing with the Colts on a two-year contract. He apparently won't play the second season, following a 2020 campaign in which he dealt with knee, ankle and oblique injuries, ultimately requiring surgery on the ankle. Castonzo's dozen starts in 2020 brought him up to 144 for his career, spanning the entire Andrew Luck era and then some. The Colts' offensive line otherwise remains strong, but they now have a major hole to address on the blindside. The decision to bring in 33-year-old Jared Veldheer at the end of the 2020 season suggests the team doesn't have much confidence in the likes of Chaz Green or Casey Tucker to replace Castonzo.
Castonzo (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Castonzo is scheduled to undergo season-ending ankle surgery, so the shift to injured reserve was only a matter of time. Chaz Green is poised to work at left tackle for the Colts, and Joey Hunt was promoted from the practice squad to bolster the depth on the offensive line.
Head coach Frank Reich said Wednesday that Castonzo will undergo season-ending ankle surgery, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
Castonzo will be placed on IR in the near future. He started 12 games this season and has one year remaining on his contract. Chaz Green is expected to slot in at left tackle for the season finale against the Jaguars.
Castonzo (knee/ankle) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday afternoon's game against the Steelers.
Castonzo appeared to be trending in the right direction upon logging a limited session Wednesday, but a reversal to no participation Thursday seemingly doomed the 32-year-old's Week 16 status. He was able to power through his knee issue to get the start last Sunday versus Houston, but now Chaz Green is expected to man the left tackle spot against Pittburgh's injury-depleted front seven.
Castonzo (knee/ankle) is questionable for the Colts' Week 16 matchup against the Steelers, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Castonzo has dealt with a knee injury since Week 12 but was able to play all 54 snaps against the Texans in Week 15. Though he seemed to be on a positive trajectory, Castonzo reportedly picked up an additional ankle injury in the lead-up to Week 16. He was unable to practice on Friday as a result, leaving his status for Sunday in doubt.
Castonzo (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Castonzo came into the game drawing the questionable tag with the knee issue that has hampered his practice time this season. Now healthy, expect the veteran to assume his usual starting left tackle role for Sunday's contest.
Castonzo (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Las Vegas.
Castonzo was considered questionable with the knee injury but has been cleared to play Sunday. The 32-year-old missed one game with the MCL sprain and should reclaim his starting spot at left tackle following the quick recovery.
Castonzo (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Castonzo missed last weekend's narrow win over the Texans due to his MCL sprain, but it appears that he has a real shot to return versus Las Vegas. With backup left tackle Le'Raven Clark (Achilles) having been placed on IR, it will be a notable boost for Indianapolis' offense if Castonzo is able to go.
Castonzo (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Houston, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Castonzo sustained an MCL sprain during last week's loss to the Titans, so it's not much of a surprise he won't be suiting up this weekend. Le'Raven Clark filled in at left tackle against Tennessee and could do so again this weekend.
Castonzo (knee) sustained an MCL sprain in the Week 12 loss to the Titans and is expected to miss some time, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 32-year-old was able to avoid a serious injury, but the MCL sprain could still force him to miss some games. It's unclear if the Colts are considering a move to injured reserve, which would sideline Castonzo for at least the next three contests.
Castonzo apparently avoided a serious knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Colts have determined that Castonzo is dealing with an MCL injury. However, the initial diagnosis is that he doesn't have a major injury. The 32-year-old tackle will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of this issue, at which point a timetable should be provided.
Castonzo (knee) suffered an MCL injury Sunday against the Titans and will undergo an MRI, Jim Ayello of the The Indianapolis Star reports.
The 32-year-old suffered the injury during the first half and was ruled out shortly after heading to the locker room. The severity of the injury won't be known until after the MRI, and Castonzo could miss some time depending on the results.
Castonzo (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's matchup against Tennessee, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Castonzo was sent to the locker room in the first half and promptly ruled out for the remainder of Week 12. Le'Raven Clark took the first pair of series at left tackle upon Castonzo's exit, but he could be replaced by Chaz Green if he struggles in his assignments.
Castonzo (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Titans, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
If Castonzo proves unable to return to action for the rest of Week 12, Le'Raven Clark or Chaz Green would be responsible for holding down Philip Rivers' blindside. It remains to be seen if Tennessee can take advantage of a depleted offensive line, as the Titans defense ranks 30th in the NFL with 1.2 sacks per game this season.
Castonzo (ribs) is active Week 6 against the Bengals.
Castonzo was able to avoid any setbacks after nearly logging a complete week of practice, so he'll suit up for his primary role as the starting left tackle.
Castonzo (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan reports.
Castonzo was listed as a full participant for Thursday and Friday's practices, indicating that he'll start at left tackle Sunday if he can avoid a setback. If he's ruled out, however, Le'Raven Clark is next in line.
Castonzo (ribs) logged a full practice session Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
The 32-year-old tackle dealt with an oblique issue leading into the regular season, but he was able to shed any sort of injury designation and suit up for 90-plus percent of Indianapolis' offensive snaps Weeks 1 through 4. Castonzo suffered a ribs injury last week and ultimately could not play against the Browns during a 32-23 loss, but it appears he is trending towards being activated for a Week 6 matchup versus Cincinnati.
Castonzo (ribs) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Castonzo's absence should pave the way for Chaz Green to start at left tackle in Cleveland. The steadfast veteran will set his sights on getting healthy in time to face the Bengals in Week 6.
Castonzo (oblique) is not listed on Friday's injury report, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.
Castonzo was forced to miss a bit of practice due to his oblique injury, but he's set to draw his usual start at left tackle against the Jaguars on Sunday. Quenton Nelson (back) and Ryan Kelly (knee) have also been cleared of their respective injuries.
Castonzo is dealing with an oblique injury, but head coach Frank Reich downplayed the issue, the Indianapolis Star reports.
It's not clear how much practice Castonzo has missed or when he may return. Castonzo is a key component on the offensive line, so his status is definitely one to monitor as the team gets ready for Week 1.
