Colts' John Simon: Not taking starting reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simon has moved to a 4-3 defensive end role in minicamp and hasn't received any starting reps, 1070 am Indianapolis reports.

Simon appears to be competing for a roster spot rather than a starting role, according to the report. The sixth-year pro had 43 tackles (28 solo) and one interception as a linebacker in 2017 while playing just nine games before a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve. It sounds like he's not prominently in Indy's plans on defensive unless he has a strong training camp.

Colts' John Simon: Will put hand in dirt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simon (shoulder) will be moved from linebacker to defensive end in 2018, Greg Rakestraw of 1070 The Fan reports.

Simon ended the season on injured reserve, and he's working towards his new role now that he's healthy. The sixth-year pro had 43 tackles (28 solo) and one interception as a linebacker in 2017. Standing at 6-foot-1, Simon is shorter than traditional defensive ends, so it'll be interesting to see how he adjusts when the Colts shift from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme.

Colts' John Simon: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simon (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Simon suffered the shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. His season ends after nine games, in which he recorded 43 tackles (28 solo), three sacks and one interception which he returned for a touchdown. In his absence, look for Barkevious Mingo to take over starting responsibilities.

Colts' John Simon: Full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simon (neck) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Simon has missed the Colts' past three games with a stinger. His full availability Wednesday puts him in good standing for the divisional matchup with the Titans on Sunday, when he's expected to take back a starting role at outside linebacker. Prior to going down with the neck injury, Simon accrued 39 tackles, three sacks, an interception and a touchdown across seven contests.

Colts' John Simon: Hopeful to return Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts are hopeful that Simon (neck) will play Sunday against the Titans, Mike Wells of ESPN reports.

Simon has been sidelined suffering a neck injury in the Colts' Week 7 loss to the Jaguars. Barring any setback, he should resume his role as starting strongside linebacker.
