by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Darryl Slater of reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets' Tarell Basham: Claimed by New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday but he didn't even hit the open market. A knee injury prevented from Basham participating in the offseason as much as he would have liked, and his chances of sticking with the Colts suffered as a result. He'll now have a new opportunity in New York.

Tarell Basham: Let go by Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

Basham seemed on track to earn a key defensive role in Indianapolis, but he was sidetracked due to a knee injury all offseason and ultimately waived. The 2017 third-rounder will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Plays just nine snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bashim didn't have a tackle and played just nine snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Bashim, a third-round 2017 draft pick, looked to have a shot at starting role at the beginning of training camp, but a knee injury hurt his chances. It looks like he'll have a limited reserve role initially this season.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Off Tuesday injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) is not among the players listed on Tuesday's injury report.

Basham required multiple stitches for a minor knee laceration in late August, but it wasn't expected to cost him any regular-season action. His absence from the injury report furthers that notion.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Knee injury minor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is dealing with a minor laceration on his knee that required multiple stitches, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Basham fortunately dodged any sort of serious injury and faces decent odds being ready for Week 1 if he survives final roster cuts this weekend.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Hurts knee Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham left Thursday's preseason win over the Bengals with a knee injury, but head coach Frank Reich said it was minor, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Basham had been nursing a knee injury during most of the preseason, so hopefully this isn't a significant setback.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) was active for Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Basham had been nursing a knee injury for a couple days prior to Saturday's contest, but it doesn't look like it was anything serious, as not only was Basham active, but he managed to appear in 28 defensive snaps for the Colts.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is dealing with a knee injury, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

The specifics of the injury have yet to be released, leading to plenty of speculation. Given the nature of knee injuries, it'll be interesting to see what kind of further medical evaluations, if any, are needed. Basham entered the preseason expecting to compete for a depth role along the defensive line.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Working with third-team defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham has spent the bulk of the last two training camp practices running with the third-team defense, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Basham had a chance to start at defensive end, but John Simon's performance in training camp and in the first preseason game has pushed Basham back to a reserve role.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Opportunity to start this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham has performed well during the Colts' offseason program will have an opportunity to start opposite Jabaal Sheard in 2018, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Basham, who is down 15 pounds from his rookie season, has been playing with the starting unit throughout the offseason and is beginning to separate himself from the rest of his competitors. The 24-year-old's physical transformation coupled with the Colts' change to a 4-3 defensive scheme -- which he thrived in during his collegiate career at Ohio -- may allow him to open camp atop the depth chart at the left end spot.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Will get more pass-rush chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Chuck Pagano said Basham will get more chances in pass-rush situations with John Simon (shoulder) on injured reserve, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Basham hasn't played more than 19 defensive snaps this season, but it sounds like he'll surpass that number Sunday against the Bills. The rookie third-round pick has two sacks already this season, proving he's capable of taking on the challenge.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Gets third sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham had a sack and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's 30-10 loss at Jacksonville.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Two QB hurries in NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham played just 15 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to the Rams. He didn't have a tackle, but had two QB hurries.

The 2017 third-round draft pick didn't make a strong impression in training camp and begins the season as a reserve player. He could get more playing time if he continues to show some spark in rushing the passer, however.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Not making strong impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham hasn't made a strong impression in training camp so far and seems unlikely to be in the linebacker rotation, ESPN reports.

The Colts are desperate for any kind of pass rush and the 2017 third-round draft pick would appear to be a good candidate since his final season at Ohio featured 10.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss. However, it looks like it may take awhile before he makes an impact.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Headed to Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts selected Basham in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 80th overall.

Basham (6-foot-4, 269 pounds) is a big, athletic edge prospect who has good upside at a position of need for Indianapolis. He logged a 4.7-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 119-inch broad jump, and he finished his final season at Ohio with 10.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss.
