Colts' Bobby Okereke: Makes practice return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okereke was a full participant for the Colts' practice session Thursday.

The 24-year-old linebacker underwent surgery on his thumb earlier this week but has been able to make a prompt return to practice, albeit with a club-like cast on his left hand. Okereke has logged three starts this season, playing at least 80 percent of the defensive snaps in Weeks 2, 3 and 4. Barring a setback, it appears he will be available Sunday for a matchup against Cleveland's top-ranked rushing attack.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okereke will undergo surgery to address a thumb injury this week, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Colts' Bobby Okereke: Excels in larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okereke played 61 snaps in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Falcons, finishing the game with eight tackles (six solo).

The snap total was a season-high for Okereke who played just 20 snaps the week before. Starting in place of Darius Leonard (concussion), Okereke finished second on the Colts with eight tackles, trailing only Anthony Walker (14). If Leonard can't go in Week 4, expect more of the same from Okereke when his team hosts the Raiders.

Colts' Bobby Okereke: Heading to Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts selected Okereke in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 89th overall.

A three-year starter at Stanford who picked up Pac-12 Honorable Mention nods in each of his last two seasons, Okereke adds even more talent to a loaded Indianapolis linebacking corps. He had 96 tackles in each of the last two seasons and has impressive length and athleticism for a linebacker. Okereke checks in with 34 1/2-inch arms and ran a 4.58-second 40-yard dash at the combine. The Darius Leonard comparisons will be tough to escape because of Okereke's speed, length, and ability.
