Geathers (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 2 contest against the Redskins.
Geathers saw significant time last week and it's unclear if he'll have a similar role or be limited due to his injury. Look for him to start and for Matthias Farley to see extra reps if Geathers is limited or aggravates the injury.
Geathers started at strong safety and had seven total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Geathers played in just five games last season while recovering from a neck injury. He played all 56 of the defense's snaps and should be a good source of tackles on an Indy defense that will struggle to get off the field.
Geathers (knee) was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Geathers played in just five games for Indianapolis while recovering from a neck injury in 2017. He also had offseason knee surgery and is looking to steer clear of the injury bug during the 2018 campaign. When healthy, Geathers is a potential starter for the Colts, battling with Malik Hoooker (knee) and Matthias Farley for the two first-team slots. Geathers can practice as early as Friday, but the Colts may ease him into the swing of things to avoid aggravating his injury.
Geathers (knee) will likely start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
According to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis, Geathers underwent offseason knee surgery to repair an injury that 'flared up late last year.' The safety is reportedly '80 percent' recovered, though, and there isn't any concern over his availability for the start of the regular season. With Geathers likely to be sidelined during the opening days of training camp -- alongside Malik Hooker (knee) -- Ronald Martin could take extended reps with the first-team defense.
Geathers' 2017 season was marked by injury, as the safety played in just five games while dealing with a neck injury. It's unclear what has prevented him from practicing during the Colts' offseason program, but it's expected he'll be ready for the start of the regular season if not the start of training camp.
