Colts S Geathers still recovering from surgery


  • With OTAs starting next week, Indianapolis Colts expected starting safety Clayton Geathers is still rehabbing from the injury that sent him to injured reserve after Week 11 last season.
  • Geathers’ 90.3 run-defense grade was tied with Harrison Smith for sixth-best in the NFL last season.
  • The second-year safety’s 9.1 run-stop percentage in 2016 was best on the Colts and sixth-best in the NFL.
  • The Colts’ in the box safety only started Weeks 2-11, but he led the league in tackles by a player to play less than 600 snaps with 53.
  • Geathers also had the fourth-most stops, the cumulative number of solo defensive tackles made which constitute an offensive failure, during that span.
