Colts' Quenton Nelson: Fifth-year option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts have exercised Nelson's fifth-year option for 2022.

The move locks Nelson in with Indianapolis through the 2022 season at a salary of around $13 million, but it may only be a placeholder for an eventual long-term deal. One of the best lineman in the NFL, Nelson may be in store for a contract that would exceed the $46.89 million guaranteed Joe Thuney received from the Chiefs earlier this offseason, which currently stands as the NFL record for a guard.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (back) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's contest in Jacksonville, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Nelson's back injury caused him to miss some practice time, but there was never serious doubt about the star guard's availability. With Anthony Castonzo (oblique) and Ryan Kelly (knee) both also off the injury report, Indianapolis' top-five O-line is set to kick off the season at full strength.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Jaguars. Andrew Walker of the Colts' official website reports.

Nelson sustained a concussion during the first half of last week's victory over the Panthers. He was able to return to Thursday's practice and has now been given a clear bill of health. Look for him to take on his usual workload, assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Questionable for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Nelson suffered a concussion in Week 16 and has been working his way through the league's protocol. The guard was a full participant Friday, but it remains to be seen if he will suit up. If Nelson is out or limited, expect Joe Haeg to be the favorite to fill in at left guard.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Nelson left Sunday's game against the Panthers with the issue and missed practice Wednesday. That he was able to get back out there is certainly a good sign, but he still has hurdles to clear before passing the league's concussion protocol.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Dealing with head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson left Sunday's game and against the Panthers and won't return due to a concussion, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

It's unclear how Nelson picked up the knock, but he'll get checked by an independent neurologist and have to clear the league's concussion protocol before having a chance to return to the field. Now that Nelson is sidelined, however, Joe Haeg is expected to take over as the team's starting left guard.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hip/neck) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Nelson turned in two limited practices this week before upgrading to a full one Friday. He hasn't missed a snap this year and will take his usual spot at left guard Sunday.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Lands on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Texans due to a hip injury.

It is unclear when Nelson picked up the injury, but it presumably occurred at practice. He went from full participant all week to sidelined Friday. Joe Haeg would be in line to replace him at left guard should he ultimately be unable to go.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.

He won't play in Indy's next preseason game, but it looks like the ankle injury that kept him out of a few days of practice isn't a serious issue.

Colts' Quenton Nelson: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson isn't practicing Monday due to an ankle injury, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

The injury is described as a minor concern, so Nelson is expected to return to practice relatively quickly. The 23-year-old started all 16 games at left guard during his rookie campaign and remains locked in heading into the 2019 season.
