Rogers got ample playing time the past three games with Donte Moncrief out, but had just three receptions on 11 targets. His production would likely improve if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018, but it's not clear if Rogers will be given a shot a top-three receiver role.
Bostic suffered the injury in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and while the specifics remain relatively unknown, his 2017 season has come to an end. Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are set for increased workloads at inside linebacker over the final two weeks of the season.
Kelly did not play in last Thursday's game against the Broncos, marking his third straight missed contest. The 24-year-old had not progressed through the league's concussion protocol as hoped and will have the entire offseason to recuperate, leaving Mike Person to continue as the Colts' starter at center.
After being drafted by Detroit in the sixth round of the draft in April, Kaaya was waived three times by two different teams before ultimately joining the Lions' practice squad in late October. The Colts evidently recognized some potential in the 22-year-old, who will get a look during their final week of practice of the season. Indianapolis could view Kaaya as a potential backup candidate in 2018 with Scott Tolzien set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Grace hasn't seen the field since Week 2 against the Packers, when he played strictly in special teams scenarios. Top middle linebacker Deion Jones rarely leaves the field, so don't expect Grace to log many defensive snaps or serve as a relevant fantasy option.
Castonzo was limited to a handful of snaps in practice Friday after not practicing early in the week, but he is apparently well enough to play Sunday. The 29-year-old will start at left tackle for the Colts against the Texans.
Mewhort underwent an MRI after his knee swelled up Friday and it was decided that another surgery was necessary. The 26-year-old sustained a meniscus injury late last season as well, and will finish on IR for the second consecutive season.
Because starting center Ryan Kelly is out with a concussion, Person is expected to snap the ball Sunday.
Jones joined the Colts organization just before the season began, and he suited up for just five games as he was often a healthy scratch or a practice squad player. The 2015 third-round pick will be faced with another offseason of fighting for roster spots, whether it's on the Colts or elsewhere.
Travis played 11 games with Kansas City prior to being waived and subsequently claimed by Indianapolis. The 25-year-old caught two passes for 33 yards in four games with the Colts, and will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2018.
Hooker underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in early November and has apparently been moving without crutches for several months at this point. The Colts are likely to wait until further along in the 21-year-old's recovery process before providing any sort of firm timetable for his return.
Melvin has acted as the No. 1 cornerback for an injury-ravaged Colts secondary for much of the season, but he's been sidelined the past four weeks with a dislocated metatarsal on his left hand and didn't make enough progress in his recovery to gain clearance for the Week 17 matchup with the Texans. With Melvin unavailable for the season finale, Kenny Moore, Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston should serve as the team's primary corners.
Johnson has spent the past month on the Colts' practice squad after spending previous stints with the Jets and Patriots. Look for the Johnson to play in a reserve role on the defensive line behind starter Margus Hunt.
Binford was released by Cardinals in May before signing with the Colts in June. He was not expected to land on the final roster before getting injured.
Hankins started 15 games at defensive end for the Colts in the first year of the three-year contract he signed in April 2017. The 25-year-old should serve a similar role on the Indianapolis defense for the 2018 season.
Turbin looks like he'll be in store for a normal offseason, but despite his good health, he won't be able to play in any of the Colts' final four games or practices during that stretch after the team already exhausted both of its designated-to-return-from-IR spots. The running back will enter the second year of his two-year contract with the Colts in 2018.
Hairston played a much larger role than anticipated in 2017 due to numerous injuries to the Colts' secondary, as well as the departure of veteran Vontae Davis. The rookie fifth-round pick should battle for defensive snaps in training camp, with starting cornerbacks Pierre Desir (pectoral) and Rashaan Melvin (hand) both headed for free agency in 2018.
Williams was promoted to the active roster prior to Week 6, but failed to participate in any games. Assuming he clears waivers, the 24-year-old will either look for a new opportunity or land on the team's practice squad.
The 44 tackles set a new career high for Woods, who had never broken 30 tackles in a season before 2017. The 30-year-old nose tackle typically serves as a run-stopper and is unlikely to maintain a similar level of production with the Colts in 2018.
Brent was brought in as a safety measure at wide receiver, as Donte Moncrief (groin) is questionable for the contest. Brent has been with the team since signing with the practice squad Oct. 24. Prior to that he spent time with the Seahawks and Raiders.
Geathers returned from the Physically Unable to Perform list from his preseason neck injury for the final five games of the season. The 25-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie contract and has played only 14 games over the past two seasons, and will likely require a strong training camp to have any chance at a starting role in 2018.
Mingo started the season with limited production, but turned things on in the second half of the season with 33 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in the final eight games. The former first-round pick enters the 2018 season as an unrestricted free agent and could be an attractive rotational option at outside linebacker for a number of teams.
Milton didn't participate in Friday's practice and was given a questionable designation, but it appears it may have been just for cautionary measure. The second-year pro has only played seven defensive snaps all season, so don't expect much of an impact Sunday.
Hilton continued his boom-or-bust season as he had four games of 100 yards or more receiving, and eight games of 30 yards or less. He had a big decline in production without Andrew Luck as his 57 receptions and 966 yards receiving were the lowest since his rookie season in 2012. His four touchdowns were a career low. No player may get a bigger boost if Andrew Luck is able to return in 2018.
The Colts stuck with Frank Gore as the primary ball carrier all season even though at age 34 he's unlikely to return next season and Mack could be the future starter. Mack had 358 yards rushing and four total touchdowns in his rookie season. He had just a 3.8 YPC, but showed explosiveness and could be poised to become the starter if Gore doesn't return.
Adams, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft by the Vikings, was waived by the team in late October and joined their practice squad shortly after for the remainder of the season. He'll now spend the offseason with the Colts and have the opportunity to earn a spot on the final roster during training camp later this year.
Morrison started all 15 games for Indianapolis and finished the season as the team's top tackler. The 23-year-old looked to take a step forward in his sophomore season and likely heads into 2018 as a presumed starter at inside linebacker for the Colts.
Back-to-back injury-plagued seasons have derailed the 24-year-old wideout's ascent, and his modest 2017 numbers (26 catches on 45 targets for 391 yards and two TDs in 12 games) were also in part fueled by the absence of franchise QB Andrew Luck. Per the report, Moncrief -- whose rookie contract is set to expire -- would prefer to re-sign with the Colts, but GM Chris Ballard seems unlikely to be inclined to offer the wideout a lucrative extension offer. Moncrief is thus a candidate to test free agency unless he's willing to accept a "prove-it" deal to remain with the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Doyle was one of the few things working well for the Indy offense in 2017 as he finished with 80 receptions for 690 yards and four touchdowns. His production could get a boost if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018.
Farley also added seven pass breakups and finished second on the team in total tackles. The 25-year-old put forth a productive sophomore season and will likely compete with Clayton Geathers for a starting role at safety for the Colts in 2018, opposite of Malik Hooker.
Considering that the weighted balls are heavier than the football, Luck's announcement Tuesday that he has ruled out the possibility of a second surgery on his throwing shoulder seems to have some merit. Now throwing for the first time since being shut down in late October, Luck's progress will likely be monitored extra carefully as the Colts aim to get him ready for the 2018 campaign after he was sidelined for all of last season. According to Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star, Luck, who is training in California with noted quarterback and throwing motion gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, said that his main focus at this time is strengthening the muscles around the shoulder to make sure he's capable of handling a full workload by the time the upcoming season starts. It remains to be seen if he'll rejoin the Colts for Organized Team Activities this spring or if he'll be on the field for the start of training camp in the summer.
Daniels' full session to begin Week 16 preparations offers optimism about his chances of suiting up Saturday against the Ravens, though the coaching staff would surely like to see him put in another full practice or two to feel better about his availability. The reserve tight end has missed the last four games with the hamstring issue and shouldn't be expected to play a major role in the passing game if he suits up Saturday.
Eberflus' scheme calls for the defensive front to provide more pressure on quarterbacks and limit big plays, something that wasn't asked of the Colts' linemen as often in the 3-4 setup used under recently fired head coach Chuck Pagano. In the new one-gap line arrangement, Johnathan Hankins is expected to slide over from defensive end to defensive tackle, opening up a spot on the edge for Sheard. The 28-year-old Sheard is coming off a 2017 season in which he recorded 52 stops (37 solo), his highest total since 2012, his second season in the NFL. The presumed move to the line will minimize the tackle opportunities available for Sheard, though he could notice an uptick in the 5.5 sacks he registered last season; over his career, Sheard has delivered three seven-plus sack campaigns, all of which came under coordinators who favored 4-3 defenses.
The 26-year-old Wright didn't log any NFL action in 2017 after having accrued 18 receptions for 197 yards across 24 games with the Bengals the preceding two seasons. The 2014 seventh-round pick will try to earn his way back onto an NFL roster with a strong showing for the Colts during training camp.
He has 14,026 yards rushing in his career. Gore says he plans to play in 2018, but it seems unlikely he'll return to Indianapolis with a rebuilding team. Gore finishes the season with 961 yards rushing and four total touchdowns, but just 3.7 yards per carry.
Green's season stats look quite similar to his rookie season (43 tackles, 32 solo), and he didn't see a consistent defensive role until the second half of the season. The 22-year-old is likely to start the 2018 season as a reserve safety, but a solid training camp could create an opportunity to perhaps carve out a starting role.
Winn didn't practice Monday due to an undisclosed injury. His placement on IR opens a roster spot for the addition of fellow tailback Daryl Richardson.
Perry was waived in order to make room for Clayton Geathers on the active roster. The 23-year-old linebacker could be a target for the Colts' practice squad should he clear waivers.
It was a tough first go-round in Indianapolis for Aiken, who logged career-lows in receptions, yards and touchdowns, despite making seven starts with the team. It's difficult to say if his 2017 performance will garner another deal from the Colts, especially with Donte Moncrief also entering free agency. However, Aiken's breakout 2015 season with the Ravens could still be relevant enough to get him a deal somewhere in the league.
Stewart dominated the competition in the Southern Conference at Albany State. He was a three-time first-teamer in the Southern Conference and has good size at 6-foot-4, 334 pounds, but Stewart will have a learning curve at the next level as he adjusts to NFL competition. Stewart is a project with upside, but some may consider him a reach even at the bottom of the fourth round.
Though Brissett has been with the Colts for less than a month after being acquired from the Patriots prior to final roster cuts, Tolzien performed poorly enough as starter in the team's embarrassing loss to the Rams in Week 1 for coach Chuck Pagano to go in a different direction. If Andrew Luck's shoulder injury keeps him sidelined for the foreseeable future and Brissett fails to ignite the offense or succumbs to an injury, it's possible that Tolzien gets another look as the team's signal caller, but he's unlikely to yield promising results in that scenario. For his career, the 30-year-old Tolzien owns a mediocre 61.6 quarterback rating and a 2:9 TD:INT ratio.
Michael suffered an injury during practice Wednesday and it appears as though it was at least somewhat serious. Indianapolis signed running back Troymaine Pope to take the place of Michael on the team's current roster.
Bond suffered a torn quad muscle in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, and the injury will require surgery. With that, Bond's season likely is over, and the Colts will be down to their third center until they can get Ryan Kelly (foot) back on the field.
Walker was a member of the Colts' practice squad for the entire 2017 season after being waived during final roster cuts in September. The former Temple standout likely will get the opportunity to compete for No. 2 or 3 quarterback duties if he remains on the roster through training camp this summer.
Walker was active for only two games in the first half of the season but managed to earn a pair of starts to finish the year. The rookie fifth-round pick had 19 tackles over the final three weeks of the season, and could have a chance to earn an increased role in 2018 with starting linebacker Jon Bostic headed for free agency.
At this point in the season, Anderson will be unable to return by Week 17 once he undergoes surgery Friday. Oft-injured throughout his three-year career, the defensive tackle has appeared in just 29 games, accruing 65 tackles (43 solo), three sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Expect some combination of Margus Hunt and Hassan Ridgeway to cover the gap left behind by Anderson on the defensive front.
The accident occurred before 4 AM, when Jackson and a ride-sharing operator were killed. Jackson, an inside linebacker, posted 66 tackles and two sacks in 16 games with the Colts in 2016 before spending this past season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.
Basham hasn't played more than 19 defensive snaps this season, but it sounds like he'll surpass that number Sunday against the Bills. The rookie third-round pick has two sacks already this season, proving he's capable of taking on the challenge.
In his second season, Ferguson had less responsibilities on offense due to rookie fourth-round pick Marlon Mack's emergence. Still, he kept his consistent place on the roster with his special teams contributions, and he'll continue to battle for offensive reps in 2018.
Burwell was moved to the active roster after Andrew Luck (shoulder) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday. Burwell should serve as a depth lineman and special teams contributor for the time being.
Butler started the season as a reserve safety, but saw an increased workload once rookie Malik Hooker was lost for the year with a torn ACL. The 31-year-old will enter the 2018 season as an unrestricted free agent and is likely to serve as a reserve secondary option with his new team, assuming he parts ways with Indianapolis.
George mostly served in a reserve role for the Colts this season, but did earn a start in Week 2. The 25-year-old is entering the final year of his two-year contract with Indianapolis and is likely to serve a similar role in 2018, assuming he remains with the team.
Frank Gore did most of the work on Brissett's lone score, taking the dump-off and weaving through the defense for a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Not much has gone right this season for Brissett and the Colts, and about the best thing you could say about the second-year passer is that he's now gone three straight weeks without a pick. He should get an opportunity to end the season on a high note in Week 17 against the Texans. Brissett put up a season-high quarterback rating of 122.6 against the Texans in Week 9, tossing two touchdowns and piling up 308 yards.
Wilson was active for the first two weeks of the season, but didn't see game action again until Week 13. The rookie second-round pick started the final four games of the season and could have a chance to earn an increased role in 2018 with starting cornerbacks Pierre Desir (pectoral) and Rashaan Melvin (hand) slated for free agency.
Vander Laan did not participate at practice again this week and hasn't made the necessary progress to clear the concussion protocol. The 25-year-old will finish the 2017 with zero targets in four games with Indianapolis.
Simon suffered the shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. His season ends after nine games, in which he recorded 43 tackles (28 solo), three sacks and one interception which he returned for a touchdown. In his absence, look for Barkevious Mingo to take over starting responsibilities.
Ridgeway doubled his total of 1.5 sacks from his rookie season, but is typically featured as a lane blocker on the interior of the Colts defense. The 2016 fourth-round pick is likely to serve a similar role with Indianapolis for the 2018 season.
Hunt had a limited defensive role to start the season, but earned five starts over the final seven games of the season for Indianapolis. The 30-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with the Colts and should serve in a rotational role at defensive end in 2018.
Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis first reported Wednesday that the two parties were working out a one-year extension, and now Vinatieri's return for a 23rd NFL season is official. With a 29-for-34 mark on field-goal attempts last season -- including a 5-for-6 showing from 50-plus yards -- Vinatieri showed no signs of decline in his age-44 season. Assuming he's able to maintain the accuracy he's displayed in recent years, Vinatieri could be in store for an uptick in the 109 points he tallied in 2017. The Indianapolis offense should benefit greatly from the expected return of franchise signal caller Andrew Luck from shoulder surgery, which sidelined him for all 16 games last season.
Williams suffered the concussion in last Thursday night's game against the Broncos and was eventually admitted to the local hospital. To no surprise, the Colts will exercise caution with the tight end and shut him down for the rest of the season. Williams was primarily used on special teams in 2017.
The Colts secondary was already shorthanded with Rashaan Melvin (hand) inactive Sunday, but will now likely be without the two starting cornerbacks. Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore should see significantly increased snap counts with Desir unlikely to return against the Jaguars.
Glowinski will provide the Colts with another depth option along the interior of the offensive line with starting center Ryan Kelly (concussion) landing on injured reserve. A fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2015, Glowinski is capable of playing both guard spots and made 10 appearances (two starts) with Seattle this season before being dropped from the 53-man roster.
Martin will fill the open roster spot created by the placement of tight end Brandon Williams (concussion) on injured reserve. Martin will likely be a depth option in the secondary while seeing time on special teams.
Hogan tore his ACL in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. The 22-year-old was elevated from the practice squad prior to Week 4 in order to provide depth at wide receiver. He failed to record a reception during his stint with the club.
Good didn't participate at practice this week after sitting out last Saturday's loss to the Ravens. Joe Haeg should continue in his stead at right tackle, with Le'Raven Clark filling in at right guard.
