Margus Hunt: Cut by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts are releasing Hunt on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hunt started 25 of his 47 games for Indianapolis the past three seasons, recording 76 tackles, six sacks and 13 QB hits. Now preparing for his age-33 season, Hunt can provide depth at defensive tackle or defensive end, but he isn't anything special at either spot.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Hunt's sack Sunday gives him four on the year. His performance has been consistent this season, while he's vastly outperformed the prior five seasons of his career. His ability to get to the passer could play a large role in the team's Week 5 matchup with Patriots.

He'll look to continue what is by far the most prolific campaign of his career against the Texans in Week 4.

Colts' Margus Hunt: Recovers from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt was kept out of Friday's practice with an illness, but he's ready to play Sunday against the Titans.

Hunt has rotated in on Indy's defensive front as a reserve player, but with Henry Anderson (neck) headed to injured reserve, Hunt has a good shot at a near-full snap count. However, the fifth-year pro has just nine tackles (five solo) and one sack this season, so it'll be interesting to see how he reacts to a full workload.

Colts' Margus Hunt: Posts sack in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt had two tackles, a sack and two QB hits in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Hunt's play was about the only thing that well for the Indy defense in an embarrassing 46-9 loss. Hunt played 20 snaps on defense and provided a strong pass rush. He could be someone to monitor in deeper IDP leagues.

Colts' Margus Hunt: Signs with Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt signed a two-year contract with the Colts on Monday, NFL Network reports.

Hunt has been a disappointment in the league since the Bengals selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft, but the native Estonian emerged as a serviceable run defender this past season, albeit in a limited role. Now in Indy, he merely projects to serve as depth along the defensive line.
