Morrison, who has been impressive throughout training camp, has a chance to make the 53-man roster, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.
According to the report, Morrison's strengths align nicely with newly minted defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's system. Morrison seemingly has positioned himself to make a strong case for a roster spot with 53-man cuts looming in the near distance. Even if he makes the team, however, it's likely Morrison will be of most service on special teams.
Morrison started all 15 games for Indianapolis and finished the season as the team's top tackler. The 23-year-old looked to take a step forward in his sophomore season and likely heads into 2018 as a presumed starter at inside linebacker for the Colts.
Morrison had 11 total tackles in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.
Morrison is averaging 7.3 tackles per game. He's been a steady source of points for IDP leagues that use tackles, despite the fact he's failed to record a sack or interception.
Morrison recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-0 blowout loss to the Jaguars.
Morrison was the only member of the Colts' defense with more than five tackles in a game the team likely wants to forget. It was the 22-year-old's best statistical output of the season, following tallies of seven tackles in each of the last four contests.
