Colts' Khari Willis: Ready to face Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Willis has managed to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries, and he'll suit up Sunday against Tennessee. The rookie fourth-round pick plays a key rotational role in Indianapolis' secondary.

Colts' Khari Willis: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Willis suffered the concussion Week 11 but put in two full practices this week, though he apparently hasn't fully cleared the concussion protocol. The 23-year-old is progressing toward his return but isn't guaranteed to clear the protocol before Sunday's contest.

Colts' Khari Willis: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Willis is making good progress in his recovery from a concussion, but it remains to be seen whether he's officially managed to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries. It's possible that the 23-year-old still needs to meet with an independent neurologist. In any case, the rotational safety appears to be trending towards retaking the field against the Titans on Sunday.

Colts' Khari Willis: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (concussion) practiced in a no-contact capacity Wednesday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Willis is taking his next step through concussion protocol, and he'll have two more practice sessions to elevate to full capacity. If he's able to do so, the 23-year-old has a good shot at playing Sunday against the Titans. When he's ready to go, the rookie is expected to log a respectable workload since he averaged 42.4 defensive snaps per game before this injury.

Colts' Khari Willis: Unavailable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (concussion) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Texans, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

It appears Willis entered concussion protocol following Sunday's win over the Jaguars. George Odum is in line to serve as the Colts' No. 3 safety until Willis is healthy. Indianapolis' secondary is in rough shape heading into the divisional clash, as cornerbacks Pierre Desir (hamstring), Kenny Moore (shin) and Rock Ya-Sin (ankle) will all be monitored during the practice week.

Colts' Khari Willis: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (foot) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Willis exited Week 8's win over the Broncos due to a foot issue and wasn't able to practice Wednesday, but he's now managed to resume working without limitations. Barring any setbacks, the rookie fourth-round pick is on track to suit up versus Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Colts' Khari Willis: Out for remainder of Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (foot) won't return to Sunday's game against the Broncos, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

It's unclear when and how Willis picked up the injury, but it's apparently serious enough to force him to miss time. In his stead, George Odum and Rolan Milligan are both in line to see an increase in depth reps at safety and on special teams.

Colts' Khari Willis: Plays well in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and a pass defensed across 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Willis is replacing Malik Hooker (knee) for next month or so in the Colts secondary and played well in his first start. He was second on the team in tackles and play every defensive snap in the contest. He'll be facing quite the challenge next Sunday night against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Colts' Khari Willis: Opportunity knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis is primed to play a key role in Indianapolis' secondary with Malik Hooker (knee) expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Willis played 27 snaps (44 percent) on defense during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Falcons, during which Hooker managed to retake the field and play through his injury. The rookie fourth-round pick's snap count appears set for a large increase as long as Hooker remains sidelined, and he could provide some value in IDP formats.

Colts' Khari Willis: Two tackles in Indy debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis had two total tackles and played 16 snaps in Sunday's loss at the Chargers.

The 2019 fourth-round draft pick will serve in a reserve safety role as the season begins.

Colts' Khari Willis: Indianapolis drafts in trade up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts selected Willis in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 109th overall.

The Colts traded two late fourth-round picks to move up and secure Willis, so they clearly were attached to him as a target. Not much in his prospect profile stands out -- the Michigan State product stands at 5-foot-11, 213 pounds and offers a solid but unremarkable 4.52-second 40-yard dash -- but the Colts' interest in him might indicate a fondness for his zone-coverage sensibilities. He might be the swing backup safety for Malik Hooker and Clayton Geathers, who have both seen their share of durability concerns.
