Clayton Geathers moving towards return a

gainst Baltimore Ravens Clayton Geathers has been making progress during training camp Cheap Ryan Kelly Jersey , and the Indianapolis Colts have been patient while he works his way back from a knee injury. It looks like the patience is paying off. With a second straight offseason spent in the training room, Geathers is on track to make his preseason debut against the Baltimore Ravens, barring any setbacks. “Hopefully, hopefully,” Geathers said via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. “I feel like it’s going well. If that day come, if I’m up, I’m up.”This is great news for the Indianapolis defense, which lacks playmakers at the moment. With a defense that is looking for players to step up, the Colts can afford to be diligent with the talented defensive back. Geathers should not play until his body is 100 percent ready to go, along with his head. One year ago Cheap Quenton Nelson Jersey , while making his way back from a neck injury, he admitted to playing timid at times. “It was limited, it was really just getting a feel,” Geathers said. “At times, I was a little scared. I was scared ... just being back, that’s a serious injury. Just going back, I was fine with it, felt good, no problems. That really gave me some clarity.”As it sits, with Geathers and Malik Hooker — who tore his ACL — making their journey back as starters Nate Hairston Jersey , the Colts have holes in the secondary. TJ Green and Mathias Farley have garnered most of the snaps while Geathers and Hooker are out. In years past, Farley has served as a serviceable backup, but Green — who was drafted as a potential star in the making — has yet to live up to expectations. The return of Geathers, and Hooker for that matter, is important in its own right due to the fact Indianapolis has yet to find a star edge rusher to get after the quarterback — which means the Colts must find other ways on the defensive of the ball to generate big plays. With that in mind, Colts head coach Frank Reich is like the rest of the fanbase: Hopeful. “I think we’re hoping he’ll be ready,” Reich said. “I think a lot of it comes down to a confidence, and a lot of it comes down to the player. When a guy’s ready and healthy, sometimes there’s just that last emotional step of, ‘Hey Cheap Joe Haeg Jersey , I’m ready to out there and go full speed for 20 plays or whatever it is.’”Colts waive Ryan Delaire, Lenzy Pipkins to clear space for Corey Moore, Al-Quadin Muhammad Chris Ballard and the Indianapolis Colts are busy making moves on Sunday, and one move may come as a shock to the Colts fan base. After cutting John Simon one day ago, the Colts are waiving defensive end Ryan Delaire — along with cornerback Lenzy Pipkins — after claiming safety Corey Moore and defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad off the waiver wire. The release of Delaire comes as a surprise because of the fact he proved he was worthy of a spot on the 53-man roster with his performances in the preseason. Against San Francisco, Delaire amassed two sacks and three total tackles. A short time ago, Indianapolis traded linebacker Antonio Morrison to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for Pipkins. Muhammad, who is just 23 years of age, was selected in the sixth-round by the New Orleans Saints in 2017. During the season, he managed to earn a spot on the team’s 53-man roster after a solid performance during the preseason Cheap Darius Leonard Jersey , tacking on four sacks — which led the NFL at that time. During his time at the University of Miami, Muhammad finished with 62 tackles, 10.5 sacks and one forced fumble. Moore, 25, has played in 31 career games with the Houston Texans, which includes 11 starts. In three seasons of action, Moore has compiled 46 tackles and four passes defensed.
