Colts' Denico Autry: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday and won't play Sunday against the Packers, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

While teams are not required to reveal whether players put on the list have the illness or were simply in close contact with someone who did, Autry missed practice Thursday due to an illness, so the former scenario seems to be the likely one for him. If that's the case, Autry will need to remain away from the team for 10 days after receiving a negative test, meaning he'll more than likely have to miss the Week 11 clash with Tennessee as well. All we know for now, though, is that he'll sit out against Green Bay, and there have been no other COVID-19 cases reported among Colts players at this time.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (ankle) is active Week 6 against Cincinnati.

Autry will join fellow defensive end Justin Houston (hip) on the active roster, giving the Colts nine healthy defensive linemen available for the home matchup. Autry is coming off his best statistical performance of the season, racking up a season-high seven combined tackles against the Browns.

Colts' Denico Autry: Practices fully, still questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (ankle/knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bengals.

Autry didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, and despite getting on the field without limitations Friday, he'll enter the weekend with a questionable designation. He appears on track to play, but his final status won't be revealed until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Colts' Denico Autry: Two sacks in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry had two tackles, two sacks and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. Autry started at defensive end and played on 38 of the defense's 50 snaps.

Autry took over a starting role at defensive end with Kemoko Turay on the PUP list and had an immediate impact. He had the most defensive snaps of any Colts defensive lineman.

Colts' Denico Autry: Listed as starting defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry is listed as the starting defensive end opposite Justin Houston on Indianapolis' initial unofficial depth chart, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

After Kemoko Turay was placed on the PUP list to begin the season, the Colts will likely have a rotation on the defensive line with Al-Quadin Muhammad and Ben Banogu also getting time at defensive end. Autry will also log snaps at defensive tackle as well.

Colts' Denico Autry: Could start at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry is likely to start at defensive end opposite Justin Houston with Kemoko Turay (ankle) placed on the regular season PUP list, The Athletic reports.

The Colts will likely have a rotation on the defensive line with Al-Quadin Muhammad and Ben Banogu also getting time at defensive end. Autry will also likely get time at defensive tackle as well. Moving outside more could result in a few more sacks. Autry had 32 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 14 games in 2019.

Colts' Denico Autry: Likely retaining starting spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (concussion) will be competing to retain his starting spot in training camp, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Justin Houston and offseason acquisition DeForest Buckner are two obvious starters along the defensive line, but the other two spots remain somewhat up in the air. Autry is likely the favorite to start on the interior after totaling 32 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble through 14 starts in 2019, but he can also shift to the edge if necessary. The 29-year-old missed the final two games of the season due to a concussion and is entering the final year of his contract.

Colts' Denico Autry: Won't suit up for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Autry will miss his second straight game due to this concussion. The 29-year-old had felt regression in the sack department, recording 3.5 after posting nine last year, but he still managed to accrue 17 quarterback pressures compared to 18 last season. Expect Tyquan Lewis and Margus Hunt to both enjoy upticks in usage in Autry's stead.

Colts' Denico Autry: Doubtful for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Autry has yet to exit the league's concussion protocol after exhibiting concussion-like symptoms in Week 15. If Autry sits out, Margus Hunt, Tyquan Lewis and Trevon Conley figure to see additional work at defensive tackle.

Colts' Denico Autry: Out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

The 29-year-old sustained the concussion during Monday's loss to the Saints and has yet to clear the concussion protocol. Tyquan Lewis and Trevon Coley figure to see increased work at defensive tackle as a result of Autry's absence.

December 19, 2019 09:04 AM
Colts' Denico Autry: Still in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

Autry suffered the concussion during Monday's loss to the Saints, so it's not a major surprise to see he wasn't expected to practice only two days later. The 29-year-old will need to fully clear the concussion protocol to take the field Week 16.

Colts' Denico Autry: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry is in the concussion protocol, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Autry played his usual allotment of snaps in Monday night's loss to the Saints, so it is unknown precisely when he suffered the injury. He has until Sunday to clear the concussion protocol if he wants to go against the Panthers. Tyquan Lewis and Margus Hunt would be the likely candidates to replace the 29-year-old if he is unable to make it back in time.

Colts' Denico Autry: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (eye) returned to Sunday's game against Atlanta, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Although the injury wasn't revealed, Autry likely got poked in the eye during the game and had recovered following the halftime break. Now that he's returned, expect him to slot into his usual role as a starting defensive tackle.

September 22, 2019 03:48 PM
Colts' Denico Autry: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (eye) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

It's unclear how Autry suffered the injury, but it's likely he was poked in the eye. The hope is that the 29-year-old just needs some time to shake it off then return, but as long as he's out, Tyquan Lewis and Grover Stewart are the leading candidates to see increases in snaps.

Colts' Denico Autry: Two sacks in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry had two sacks, four tackles and two QB hits in Sunday's win over Tennessee.

Autry is off to a strong start as a pass rusher with 2.5 sacks in his first two games, and he looks set to improve on his career-high nine sacks last season.

Colts' Denico Autry: Gets to quarterback Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry had four tackles and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's loss at the Chargers.

Autry started at right end and played on 50 of the defense's 63 snaps. After a career-high nine sacks last season, Autry looks set to contribute in the pass rush again.

Colts' Denico Autry: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (shoulder) is listed as active for Saturday's AFC divisional-round tilt against the Colts.

Aubrey returned to practice Thursday in limited fashion after sitting out the previous few days, which indicated he was trending toward being available Saturday. He indeed is, and will presumably take on his usual workload at defensive tackle assuming he avoids any setbacks.

January 11, 2019 09:36 AM
Colts' Denico Autry: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Chiefs.

Autry did not practice Tuesday or Wednesday and was a limited participant Thursday. The starting defensive tackle appears to be nursing a shoulder injury picked up during last week's wild-card win over the Texans, and he could be a game-time decision. If Autry were to miss any time, Hassan Ridgeway would benefit from increased defensive snaps.

December 18, 2018 03:36 PM
Colts' Denico Autry: Continues sack streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry recorded one sack during Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Autry has racked up six total sacks throughout the Colts' past three games, playing over 40 defensive snaps in each of those contests as well. He'll remain busy at defensive tackle again in Week 16 against the Giants.

December 11, 2018 09:12 AM
Colts' Denico Autry: Two sacks in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Autry had two sacks, 2.5 tackles for a loss and four total tackles in Sunday's win at Houston.

Autury has already set a career high in sacks, posting eight in nine games after tallying five last season in 16 games. It looks like he's found a new gear in his career at age 27.
