D'Qwell Jackson: Released by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) was released by the Colts on Thursday.

Jackson had a nice season for the Colts before being suspended for its final four games due to a violation of the NFL's performance enhancing substances policy, racking up 78 combined tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles. The veteran inside linebacker would have been owed $5.5 million of non-guaranteed money in 2017 had the Colts kept him, so it is not necessarily surprising to see him released, especially taking the recent suspension into consideration. Jackson is now entering his 11th season, but still appears to have plenty of gas left in the tank and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Suspended four games for PED use
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) has been suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Jackson's suspension is a big blow as he's one of Indy's best players on a defense that's struggled at the linebacker position. He'll miss the rest of the regular season but could return for the playoffs. He's currently in the concussion protocol, so he'll have four weeks to recover from that injury if the Colts make the postseason.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Has nine tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had nine total tackles, a sack and a defended a pass in Sunday's win over Tennessee.

After a slow start to the season where he averaged just 5.3 takles per game over his first four games, Jackson is averaging 7.6 tackles over his last six games. However, that's still a decline from the 9.3 tackles per game he averaged last season.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Nine tackles in Sunday victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had nine tackles Sunday against the Titans.

Jackson has now registered nine tackles in two of his last three matchups, and he's averaging 7.5 stops over his last four contests. The veteran has posted at least 140 tackles in four of his last five seasons, and although he's far off that pace through seven games this year, he's certainly someone who can string together a number of double-digit tackle games before the year ends.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Has nine tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had nine total tackles, a tackle for a loss and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over Chicago.

After a slow start with just eight tackles the first two games, Jackson's tackle totals are starting to increase. It's no coincidence the increase comes as Indy's secondary returns to full health, forcing opponents to attack the middle of the field more frequently.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Four tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had four tackles, a tackle for a loss and defended a pass in Sunday's loss at Denver.

Jackson improved his tackle totals after making just two in Week 2, but he's still far off his career averages. He's likely been involved in fewer plays with the opposing defense focusing on throwing deep amid Indy's injury-depleted secondary.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Active in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (quadriceps) is active Sunday against the Jaguars.

After putting in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, he was held out of practice Friday, yet will be in the lineup at inside linebacker. After racking up 11 tackles in each of the last two games, he'll be needed to slow down TJ Yeldon and the Jaguars rushing attack.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Game-time decision for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (quad) has been listed as a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

Jackson missed practice on Wednesday and Friday due to a quad injury, but was a limited participant on Thursday. If he is held out, it'll be a sizable loss for the Colts' defense as he leads the team with 122 tackles along with two sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception. If he isn't able to play Sunday, look for Sio Moore to grab the start.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Suits up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Jackson - who has 93 tackles in 10 games to date -- missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday this week, but he was able to get a full session in Friday, which suggests that he should be able to handle a decent chunk of work Sunday, in the absence of any setbacks with his hamstring.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: Probable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Jackson did miss practice on Wednesday after tweaking his hamstring during Monday's practice session, but should be ready to go by Sunday. Jackson is a pivotal part of the Colt's defense, as he has 93 tackles through nine games this season, so having him on the field will be a big boost this Sunday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hamstring) missed practice Wednesday.

Per the report, Jackson "tweaked" his hamstring at Monday's practice session, but the linebacker -- who has racked up 93 tackles in nine games to date -- should be back on the field come Thursday.

Colts' D'Qwell Jackson: 13 total tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had 13 total tackles and a tackle for a loss in Monday's loss at Carolina.

Jackson is averaging 11.5 tackles per game, which is far ahead of his pace from last season of 8.8 tackles per game. Indy's offense has struggled to get off the field, so Jackson looks set to easily top his career-high of 158 total tackles if he stays healthy.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson (toe) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Jets.

Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson (toe) logged a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jets.

Any concern over Jackson's toe injury was likely alleviated by his full participation in practices the last two days. After racking up nine tackles in the Week 1 loss to the Bills, Jackson will be relied upon heavily to stymie the Jets' Chris Ivory-led running attack.
