Ya-Sin posted 62 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception over 15 games in 2019.
The rookie second-round pick started 13 of the 15 games he played in. Ya-Sin had growing pains in pass coverage this year, as he allowed 9.7 yards per target and a 69.7 completion percentage. Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore (ankle) are both under contract in 2020, but Ya-Sin figures to continue as a starter next year barring free-agent or draft additions.
Ya-Sin (shoulder) is not listed on Thursday's injury report.
Ya-Sin exited Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers due to a stinger, but he already appears fully recovered. With Kenny Moore (ankle) and Pierre Desir (groin) both nursing injuries, the rookie second-round pick could be in line for another key role in Indianapolis' secondary during Monday's tilt against the Saints.
Ya-Sin was forced out of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a stinger, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Ya-Sin left the contest late in the fourth quarter, so it's unlikely he returns to the contest. The Colts play New Orleans on Monday night in Week 15, so the rookie second-round pick will look to leverage the extra day of rest to suit up for the prime-time matchup.
Ya-Sin (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Ya-Sin popped up on the injury report Thursday and had come into the contest considered questionable. Now that the 2019 second-round pick is officially healthy, he'll look to get a bump in snaps with fellow corner Kenny Moore (ankle) inactive for Week 14.

Ya-Sin sandwiched full practices Wednesday and Friday around a limited one Thursday and seems to be trending toward playing Week 13. The Colts would be without some of their depth at cornerback if the 23-year-old can't play.
Ya-Sin (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Ya-Sin practiced in full to start the week, but he hasn't yet shaken the ankle injury that caused him to sit out Week 12.

Ya-Sin (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
After sitting out Week 12's loss to the Texans, Ya-Sin is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against the Titans. The rookie second-rounder should continue working in a starting role even though Pierre Desir has recovered from a hamstring issue.

Ya-Sin was injured during this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars, and he was listed as a DNP over the first two days of practice. The rookie second-rounder upgraded to a limited participant, and he'll likely test out the ankle before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.
Ya-Sin (ankle) is ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
The Colts' secondary takes another hit, as Pierre Desir (hamstring) is already inactive while Kenny Moore (shin) left the game as well. That leaves just Marvell Tell and Shakial Taylor as the team's only healthy cornerbacks in this divisional matchup.

It's unclear how Ya-Sin picked up the injury, but he was forced to exit late in the third quarter. In his stead, look for Marvell Tell and Shakial Taylor to see an increase in snaps. Ya-Sin already picked up an interception in the game, so his absence will be felt in the defense.
Ya-Sin is expected to start at one of the cornerback positions for Sunday's game against Denver, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.
With Pierre Desir inactive for the contest nursing a hamstring injury, Ya-Sin will get the promotion. The 23-year-old has been solid this season, racking up 24 tackles (23 solo) and one pass defended. The Temple product will face a strong matchup against a Denver offense that looked in disarray last week against Kansas City.
Ya-Sin (hip) is active for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.
The Colts' secondary is in rough shape with starting safeties Clayton Geathers (concussion) and Malik Hooker (knee) inactive, so Ya-Sin will likely be used often in pass coverage. The rookie second-round pick played every defensive snap in Week 4 against the Raiders and made four solo tackles while breaking up a pass, but this will be a tougher outing against an explosive Chiefs' offense.
Ya-Sin (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's clash against the Chiefs.
Ya-Sin went from limited at practice Thursday to a non-participant Friday, which indicates he is trending in the wrong direction. Still, the Colts may just have been erring on the side of caution with his practice availability. Quincy Wilson and Marvell Tell would be in line for bigger roles if he is ultimately forced to sit out.
Ya-Sin had two total tackles in Sunday's loss at the Chargers. He started at right cornerback with the Colts moving Kenny Moore to slot cornerback on the first series.
Ya-Sin played on 42 of the defense's 63 snaps, as the second-round pick is essentially a starter and has moved ahead of Quincy Wilson on the depth chart. He did allow all three passes targeted at him to be completed, however, according to Pro Football Focus.
Ya-Sin started ahead of Quincy Wilson in the starting nickel package in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports. He did not have a tackle and was called for pass interference.
While Ya-Sin didn't have a great game Thursday, he's drawn rave reviews in training camp and is pushing for a larger role at the start of the season. He could quickly get more snaps than Wilson in the secondary.
Ya-Sin had two tackles in Thursday's preseason game. He's drawn praise in training camp for his consistency, TheAthletic.com reports.
Ya-Sin looked well in coverage Thursday which corresponds with reports out of training camp. The second-round draft pick get playing time early in the season in nickel and dime packages.
The Colts selected Ya-Sin in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 34th overall.
Ya-Sin (6-foot, 192 pounds) doesn't possess great recruiting pedigree out of Temple and mostly showed average athleticism aside from a 39.5-inch vertical, but his 32-inch arms indicate good press potential and he was the best defensive back on a strong Temple pass defense that held opponents to a 56.9 percent completion rate and intercepted 19 passes last year. His selection probably indicates an intention by the Colts to largely stand by a Tampa-2 approach on defense.
