Hankins (ankle) was released by the Colts on Saturday.
Hankins had just wrapped up the first season of a three-year, $27 million deal he signed with Indianapolis last offseason. Perhaps the team's new defensive scheme made the big fella a bit more expendable. Either way, Hankins, 25, should draw a sizable market for his services.
Hankins started 15 games at defensive end for the Colts in the first year of the three-year contract he signed in April 2017. The 25-year-old should serve a similar role on the Indianapolis defense for the 2018 season.
Hankins (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Hankins was a non-participant at practice this week after playing through the injury in last Saturday's loss to the Ravens. Hassan Ridgeway and Anthony Johnson should both see increased snap counts against the Texans in Week 17.
Hankins sat out Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.
Chuck Pagano classified the defensive lineman as day-to-day with the ankle issue, according to George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin. Though he hasn't supplied much pressure on the quarterback with two sacks through 15 games, Hankins is a key run stuffer for the Colts, racking up 44 tackles (24 solo) on the campaign.
Hankins (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday and is cleared for Saturday's game against the Ravens.
Hankins missed practice on Wednesday but will take the field against the Ravens after logging a full practice Thursday. The defensive end is coming off an impressive performance last week against the Broncos, in which he registered five tackles (three solo) and one sack.
