Mitchell (calf) will start at free safety Sunday against Tennessee with Malik Hooker out with a hip injury.
Mitchell was a relevation for a banged up secondary when he signed Oct. 9, but missed last week's game due to a calf injury. It looks like he's healthy and ready to return to a high usage role.
Mitchell (calf) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans.
Mitchell has been dealing with the calf issue for the last few weeks and was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, but was able to finish the week with no limitations. The veteran safety could be more heavily relied up Sunday with Malik Hooker (hip) set to be a game-time decision.
Mitchell (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
Mitchell suffered the calf injury Week 8 against Oakland and the bye week apparently didn't provide enough recovery time. Corey Moore should see increased work at safety for the Colts, especially if starter Malik Hooker (hip) is unable to play or is limited Sunday.
Mitchell is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a calf injury, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
Mitchell drew the start at free safety with Malik Hooker (hip) inactive, but he was forced to exit the Week 8 contest. Corey Moore will slot into the starting lineup and attempt to contain the Raiders' Derek Carr-led passing attack as long as Mitchell remains sidelined.
Mitchell had an interception, seven total tackles, a tackle for a loss and two passes defensed in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Mitchell started at free safety in his second game with the Colts after signing Oct. 9 and played well in coverage and as a tackler. It looks like he could be a surprise mid-season addition that pays off for a team needing help in the secondary with injuries to Clayton Geathers (concussion) and Matthias Farley (shoulder).
