Geathers has cleared the league's concussion protocol Monday, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
Geathers made full use of Indianapolis' bye week to get fully healthy. He participated in practice Monday, per Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis, and appears on track to suit up versus the Texans on Sunday.
Geathers (concussion) is practicing in some capacity Monday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Geathers appears to still be in the concussion protocol after Indianapolis' bye week. He'll need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before retaking the field, which makes his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Texans uncertain.
Geathers (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.
Both of the Colts' starting safeties -- Geathers and Malik Hooker (knee) -- will sit out this contest. Indianapolis has a bye week after this game, so Geathers has a good shot at playing Week 7 versus the Texans. Khari Willis and George Odum are slated to serve as the interim starting safety duo against the Chiefs, but they'll have the unenviable task of trying to contain the league's most prolific passing attack.

Geathers was placed in concussion protocol Monday, so it's not surprising that he's unable to get back to work yet. The 27-year-old safety has been a fixture for this team at strong safety, and a prompt recovery would be a boost for the Colts' deep coverage against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Geathers is in the concussion protocol Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Geathers developed concussion symptoms after Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders, during which he notched nine tackles (six solo). The starting safety will need to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before retaking the field.
Geathers had five total tackles in Sunday's loss at the Chargers.
Geathers sat out of OTAs after undergoing "clean-up work" on his knee earlier in the offseason. However, he was healthy during the preseason and at full speed Sunday. He played on 56 of the defense's 63 snaps. He's always been an impact player when healthy.
Geathers participated in 11-on-11 drills Thursday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Geathers sat out of OTAs after undergoing "clean-up work" on his knee earlier in the offseason. When healthy, the 27-year-old will likely serve as a productive starter in the Colts' secondary. Geathers recorded 89 total tackles, three pass breakups and a forced fumble over 12 games last season.
Geathers has been sitting out of OTAs after undergoing "clean-up work" on his knee earlier this offseason, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
It's unclear how long the knee injury will keep him on the shelf this offseason. Geathers was sidelined in Weeks 16 and 17 with a knee issue, but returned to action for the postseason. When available last season, Geathers was a productive anchor for the Indianapolis secondary, racking up 89 tackles (61 solo) and one fumble recovery in 12 contests. Assuming the 26-year-old has made a full recovery from the knee procedure before the 2019 season kicks off, he should open the campaign as a starting safety.
Geathers and the Colts reached agreement Wednesday on a one-year contract, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Geathers averaged 7.4 tackles per appearance in 2018, but a four-week absence due to neck and head injuries brought his three-year total to 22 missed games. His medical history largely explains the failure to land a multi-year deal in free agency, as the 2015 fourth-round pick has been a solid starter when healthy. With fellow safety Malik Hooker often handling deep coverage responsibilities, Geathers should have plenty of tackle opportunities in 2019, assuming he retains the starting job at strong safety, an IDP-friendly gig.
General manager Chris Ballard said he will meet with Geathers' agents this week to discuss his contract status, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. "Do we want Clayton back? Yes, we want Clayton back," Ballard said Wednesday.
The 26-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. When healthy, Geathers has been an effective player when operating near the line of scrimmage and could certainly be of service to the up-and-coming Colts defense in 2019, though his going rate on the open market may be too rich for Indianapolis.
Geathers logged 11 tackles (nine solo) in Saturday's 31-13 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs. He finishes the regular season with 89 tackles, three passes defended and one forced fumble.
Geathers racked up a career high in tackles in 2018, and started all 12 of the games he played. Despite being hampered by lingering knee and neck injuries for much of the year, the-26-year-old managed to consistently maintain a heavy workload -- eclipsing 70 defensive snaps during both of the Colts' playoff games. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, it remains to be seen whether Geathers will return to Indianapolis in 2019.
Geathers (knee) is active for Saturday's wild-card game against the Texans.
A lingering knee issue kept Geathers sidelined for the final two regular-season games, but it looks like he is good to go Saturday. Barring any setbacks, look for him to resume his usual role as the Colts' starting strong safety, which should reduce Mike Mitchell's role as a result. The fourth-year veteran started all 12 games he played in this season.
Geathers (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans.
Geathers has sat out the last two games due to a lingering knee injury, and his status for Indianapolis' playoff opener remains up in the air. If Geathers were unable to suit up versus the Texans, Mike Mitchell and J.J. Wilcox (ankle) would once again split snaps at strong safety.
Geathers (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Geathers has missed the last two games while nursing his knee injury, but it seems like he'll be ready for the Colts' playoff game Saturday. Barring any setbacks, Geathers should be ready to start at strong safety for Indianapolis.
Geathers (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Geathers was listed as questionable though he was unable to practice this week. Mike Mitchell and George Odum should assume heavier workloads in the secondary as the Colts attempt to secure a playoff spot.
Geathers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Geathers was unable to practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's game against the Giants, so the questionable tag is somewhat surprising. The 26-year-old seems likely to be a game-time decision given his lack of practice reps, assuming he isn't ruled out beforehand.
Geathers was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants due to a knee injury, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Geathers was limited to 37 defensive snaps last week against the Cowboys, as he apparently sustained the knee injury during the contest. Mike Mitchell and George Odum should see increased snaps at safety this week, and the Colts also signed J.J. Wilcox on Tuesday to bolster their depth.
Geathers had eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 23-0 win against Dallas.
Geathers entered Sunday with a knee injury and played only 37 of 69 defensive snaps, yet still managed to finish second on the team in tackles. The 26-year-old is averaging 7.4 tackles per game but his minimal involvement in pass defense -- three passes defensed and no interceptions -- somewhat limits his IDP potential.

Geathers will slot in to his usual role as starting strong safety. The fourth-year pro is having a career campaign with 81 tackles through 11 games, surpassing his previous career high of 59. His stats don't add much in pass defense, however, which caps his IDP potential.
Geathers (knee) didn't participate in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.
Geathers is in the midst of a career year with 81 tackles in 11 games. If he's unable to shake his injury by game time, expect George Odum to see a hefty workload.
