Nunez-Roches was waived by Kansas City earlier in the week after totaling 24 tackles (13 solo) and a half-sack in 16 games with the Chiefs in 2017. The 24-year-old could serve in a rotational role on the Colts' defensive line if he cracks the 53-man roster in September.
It's likely a minor ailment, but we'd like to see Rogers healthy and in full speed heading into training camp after a hamstring injury limited him to just 11 games last season. He's competing with Ryan Grant and rookies Daurice Fountain and Deon Cain for the No. 2 receiver role. Either Rogers or Grant has been said to be in the lead for the role at points this spring.
Kelly's 2017 campaign was riddled with injuries, leading to him finally being placed on injured reserve in December due to a concussion. However, he now appears to be healthy and cleared of all symptoms, leaving him ready to participate in offseason workouts.
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.
Castonzo's health is key for the Colts' offense in 2018, as he's expected to serve as the starting left tackle and protect Andrew Luck's (shoulder) blind side. Thankfully, Castonzo is only expected to be absent for the opening days of training camp, as his injury isn't believed to be severe.
The Colts have been careful with Mewhort in his return from last year's season-ending knee injury, but it doesn't look like he'll be under any restrictions when training camp opens in late July.
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.
Ballard indicated that Hooker could be back on the field as soon as mid-August, though it's possible that the safety's absence could extend into the preseason. With Clayton Geathers (knee) also working his way back from injury, T.J. Green or Ronald Martin are the favorites to open training camp with the first-team defense.
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.
Slauson was placed on injured reserve by the Chargers in October after undergoing surgery on his torn biceps and signed a contract with the Colts in March. The 32-year-old participating at this point in the offseason is a good indication he avoided major setbacks in his recovery process.
Swoope, who's competing for a depth role at tight end, missed the majority of the Colts' offseason program with an undisclosed injury. While Ballard also suggested that Swoope could be limited from the outset of training camp, there doesn't seem to be any concern over Swoope's availability for the preseason.
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.
Adams has been around the NFL since 2015 but has only played in 12 games over his three year career, amassing 21 tackles in those tilts. He started the season on the Raiders before being released in October. He'll look to catch on as a depth linebacker and special teams player while with the Colts in 2018.
Turbin only played in six games last season due to an elbow injury, but when healthy he was a reliable third-down back capable in both pass protection and short-yardage rushing scenarios. The eighth-year running back was supposed to return to a similarly significant role in the Colts backfield in 2018, but without Turbin the team will now need to use a combination of Marlon Mack, fourth-round rookie Nyheim Hines (5-foot-9, 197 pounds) and fifth-round rookie Jordan Wilkins (6-1, 217) to shoulder the load. Wilkins' size could make him the favorite to take over short yardage work for the season's first four games.
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.
Listenbee was placed on injured reserve late last month but his season may not be over just yet. If he clears waivers he'll be a free agent and can sign with any team.
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.
According to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis, Geathers underwent offseason knee surgery to repair an injury that 'flared up late last year.' The safety is reportedly '80 percent' recovered, though, and there isn't any concern over his availability for the start of the regular season. With Geathers likely to be sidelined during the opening days of training camp -- alonside Malik Hooker (knee) -- Ronald Martin could take extended reps with the first-team defense.
Milton's tender is a one-year deal that will keep him in Indianapolis for a third season. He had nine tackles in 14 games last year while playing primarily on special teams. He saw just 20 defensive snaps on the season, but he played in 74 percent of special teams plays. He'll figure to be a primary special teams player once again in 2018 while also trying to work his way into the defensive rotation.
Hilton beat the rest of the league to the punch with the "best-shape-of-my-life" quote, spilling it during the second week of the Colts' offseason workout program. He even joked that his big change was eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch instead of fast food for dinner, but he's working closely with Colts director of sports performance Rusty Jones. Perhaps more important, the 28-year-old speedster sounds excited for his seventh professional season, likely invigorated by the possibility of playing with Andrew Luck (shoulder) under the tutelage of new head coach Frank Reich, who served as offensive coordinator for the Eagles last season. Hilton shouldn't have any problem piling up targets even if the Colts use an early draft pick at his position, as the other wideouts on the current roster have accounted for only 145 career receptions and five touchdowns. The major concern is Luck's continued recovery from shoulder surgery, though the Colts are optimistic their quarterback will be ready for the start of training camp. The passing game should still run through Hilton and Jack Doyle in 2018, with offseason additions Eric Ebron and Ryan Grant also in the mix to earn regular targets.
Mack, who was unavailable for the Colts' offseason workout program, is bouncing back from shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum that Mack played through for most of his rookie season. Now healthy, Mack will open training camp as the team's No. 1 running back, though he'll need to fend off rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in order to remain atop the depth chart. Robert Turbin is also around, but he's suspended for the first four games of the regular season due to a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Morrison started all 15 games for Indianapolis and finished the season as the team's top tackler. The 23-year-old took a step forward in his sophomore season and likely heads into 2018 as a presumed starter at inside linebacker for the Colts.
While the addition of Ebron will make it difficult for Doyle to match last year's career-high marks of 80 receptions and 107 targets, the expected return of Andrew Luck (shoulder) should provide the 27-year-old with more scoring opportunities, not to mention the potential for improvement on sub-par 2017 marks of 8.6 yards per catch and 6.4 per target. The Colts figure to make heavy use of two-TE formations, which should help compensate for a lack of talent at running back and wide receiver. New head coach Frank Reich previously served as coordinator for an Eagles offense that distributed 185 targets to tight ends in 2016 and 163 in 2017, accounting for 29.7 percent of the team total in his two-year tenure. Luck recently progressed to throwing footballs and could begin working with his teammates as soon as late April.
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, next to Malik Hooker.
Ballard went on to say that Luck has been throwing the ball as well as he's ever seen, and even stated that his starting quarterback will be available to play at some point in the preseason. There's even a chance that Luck will be available for the preseason opener Aug. 9 against the Seahawks, though Ballard indicated that decision is yet to be made. Regardless, Luck -- who spent time throwing with receivers in California this month, according to Dave Calabro of 14 WTHR Indianapolis -- continues to trend in the right direction, and the signal caller seems well on track to be of service to fantasy owners from the outset of the regular season.
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.
Chester Rogers was initially considered the favorite to earn the No. 2 role opposite T.Y. Hilton, but it appears Grant may have moved ahead of him in the pecking order. There is still a lot of time before the regular season begins and the Colts have a number of players to get a look at during the preseason, but Grant has put himself in a good position for reps in the early going.
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.
Green was a surprise starter at cornerback in Week 1 of last season after failing to play the position in 2016. He struggled and soon headed to the bench. Later in the season he was moved to safety, which looks permanent now. He'll begin the season as a reserve and need to work his way back into the mix for playing time.
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.
The complaint is from Jan. 7 in Los Angeles, California and alleges McCain grabbed the neck of a woman. The Colts are aware of the situation and have said they're waiting for the investigation to take its course before taking internal actions. McCain is scheduled for an arraignment hearing July 13, and he claims innocence on his personal Twitter page.
Michael spent the entire 2017 campaign on injured reserve after getting hurt in training camp. The Colts don't seem to harbor any concern about Michael's health heading into the 2018 campaign, so he should be in attendance when offseason workouts begin next month. With the Colts electing not to bring back Frank Gore, Michael could have a chance to battle Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson for snaps.
Bond is recovering from a season-ending quadriceps tear that landed him on injured reserve last October. However, Ballard has indicated that the offensive lineman is close to being ready to take the field. In 2018, Bond is expected to assume a backup role behind starting center Ryan Kelly.
Autry served as a rotational defensive lineman for the Raiders at both end and tackle last season, notching 36 tackles (23 solo) and a career-high 5.0 sacks. He may have an opportunity to compete for a starting role with the Colts, but he should serve as a rotational player at a minimum again in 2018.
Howard started all 16 games for the Ravens at right tackle last season, but was let go just one year into his three-year pact with Baltimore. He graded out as the 36th-best offensive tackle last season, per Pro Football Focus. The veteran will likely remain at right tackle for the Colts in 2018.
Walker moved up to No. 3 on the QB depth chart before last week's preseason game, but may fall back to the No. 4 spot after he didn't do much and Stephen Morris played well. With Scott Tolzien struggling in the preseason and Andrew Luck still out with a shoulder injury, it's possible any of the Indianapolis quarterbacks could figure into the mix early in the regular season.
After being carted off following some incidental contact in practice Wednesday, Walker has officially been diagnosed with a concussion. He'll need to be clear of all concussion-related symptoms before being able to return to the practice field, but the Colts will likely be overly cautious with Walker given that training camp is still over a month away.
After missing exactly half of his first 64 career games due to injury, Goode didn't miss a single contest for the Eagles in each of the past two seasons. He's mostly a special-teams player but logged a career-high 200 snaps on defense in 2017, accruing 22 tackles along the way. Goode could possibly top that number this season with the Colts given the team's questionable depth at outside linebacker.
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, who is down 15 pounds from his rookie season, has been playing with the starting unit throughout the offseason and is beginning to separate himself from the rest of his competitors. The 24-year-old's physical transformation coupled with the Colts' change to a 4-3 defensive scheme -- which he thrived in during his collegiate career at Ohio -- may allow him to open camp atop the depth chart at the left end spot.
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.
With the Colts playing Thursday night in their Week 15 loss to the Broncos, George wasn't able to rally from the neck injury on a short week. The additional few days off appears to be all George needed to heal up, setting him up for a return Saturday against the Ravens. Though he's seen most of his action on special teams in recent weeks, George could pick up more snaps at inside linebacker Saturday following starter Jon Bostic's (knee) recent placement on injured reserve.
Brissett took a league-high 52 sacks and only won four of 15 starts last season, but his numbers were otherwise respectable for a second-year quarterback stuck in an undermanned offense. He completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt, with 17 total touchdowns (four rushing) and only 10 turnovers (seven INTs). A 2016 third-round pick, Brissett has two years remaining on his rookie contract at less than $1 million per season. The Colts expect Andrew Luck (shoulder) to be healthy for training camp, but they'd still need to be blown away to consider trading Brissett. The team likely would revise its stance next offseason if Luck were to make it through the 2018 campaign without any major injuries or setbacks.
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.
Keefer suggested that Ebron's presence outside could become a consistent part of the offense in 2018. It wouldn't be too surprising given Ebron's proficiency as a pass-catcher, with Jack Doyle also on the roster to serve as the in-line tight end. Despite showing some promise at different points in his career, the 25-year-old tight end has yet to put it together completely. The Colts are hoping a change of scenery and game plan will unlock some of his potential.
Simon appears to be competing for a roster spot rather than a starting role, according to the report. The sixth-year pro had 43 tackles (28 solo) and one interception as a linebacker in 2017 while playing just nine games before a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve. It sounds like he's not prominently in Indy's plans on defensive unless he has a strong training camp.
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 on an extension, and now Vinatieri's return for a 23rd NFL season and 13th in Indianapolis 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 despite turning 45 years old in December. 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 spent time with the Browns in 2017, recording 84 yards on nine catches in seven games. He'll face tough competition at the receiver position, though he could catch on in a depth role for Indianapolis in 2018.
Desir finished the 2017 season on injured reserve after tearing a pectoral in December. Now healthy, the fourth-year corner will likely open training camp with the first-team defense.
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 originally injured his knee in October of last season and spent the remainder of the 2017 campaign on injured reserve. Now nine months removed from surgery, Hogan is likely nearing a return to the field, though Ballard indicated that the team isn't in a rush to hurry Hogan back into action.
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.
