Melvin had two total tackles and a pass defensed in Sunday's win at Houston.
Melvin played on all of the defense's 71 snaps, so he looks back to full speed after missing a game due to a concussion.
Melvin (concussion/ankle) put in a full practice Thursday.
It's believed that Melvin remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, so he'll still likely need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before he can be considered a safe bet to play Sunday against the Texans. Aside from a two-interception game against the Browns in Week 3, Melvin has been a rather quiet IDP contributor, logging 29 tackles and forcing no other turnovers in seven contests.
The Colts will have to wait and see if Melvin can practice Thursday or Friday and then pass tests administered by an independent neurologist before having any confidence that he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Texans. Melvin was held out of the Week 8 loss to the Bengals with the head injury, allowing Pierre Desir to pick up a start at cornerback.
Melvin (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Melvin was knocked out of Week 7's matchup with the Jags early due to a concussion, and he was unable to complete the league's protocol the following week. The 28-year-old has been playing lockdown defense, breaking up 11 passes and snagging two interceptions. Without him in the lineup, either Quincy Wilson or Nate Hairston will move into the No. 2 corner role, but expect both of them to see an increased workload.
Melvin has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a concussion, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
Melvin has been a monster in coverage this season, racking up 11 pass breakups and two interceptions. The Colts are light on corners, so expect Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore to see a substantial increase in snaps while Melvin is out.
