The Indianapolis Colts got a pleasant surprise last summer when rookie seventh-round pick Mike Strachan became one of the team's breakout stars in training camp. The 6'5", 224-pound wide receiver routinely made impressive plays during practice and defied the odds as a final-round pick to make the team's roster. Unfortunately,...
Strachan underwent surgery on his knee this summer, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. Although currently on the active/PUP list, Strachan is still expected to participate in training camp at some point. Once he returns, he'll battle for a depth role in a wide receiver room that features six other players with in-game NFL experience and a 2022 second-round pick.
The Colts have placed linebacker Darius Leonard on the PUP list, as Stephen Holder of ESPN.com writes. This was the expected move after Leonard underwent back surgery in June. It seems that a nerve issue in Leonard’s back caused the ankle pain that ailed him throughout the 2021 season and continued to give him trouble this spring (despite the fact that he had the ankle operated on in June 2021). Per Holder, the team has not indicated when Leonard will return to the field, but the most recent reporting on the matter suggested that he would be available near the start of training camp, which opens this week.
The Colts placed Strachan (undisclosed) on the active/PUP list Sunday, Chris Widlic of CBS4Indy reports. Strachan was absent from spring workouts due to the same issue, but the extent of it remains unknown. The 2021 seventh-round pick caught just two of three targets for 26 yards across six appearances last year and was set to have an expanded role in 2022, but he'll have to fight for a roster spot after missing so much time during the offseason.
Strachan is expected to miss the start of training camp due to an undisclosed injury, Kevin Hickey of the Colts' website reports. Strachan was absent from spring workouts due to the same issue, and the extent of his absence remains unknown. The 2021 seventh-round pick caught just two of three targets for 26 yards across six appearances last year and was set to have an expanded role in 2022, but he'll have to fight for a roster spot after missing so much time during the offseason.
Strachan caught two of his three targets for 26 yards across six appearances during the 2021 campaign. Both of Strachan's receptions came during Week 1 against the Seahawks. The rookie saw only one target Week 2 before being a healthy scratch for 11 of the last 15 games, including the final eight. He'll still be under contract for the 2022 season, but behind Michael Pittman, the Colts' wideout corps could be in store for a facelift during the offseason.
Strachan (coach's decision) is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Strachan will be in street clothes for the seventh straight game. The rookie wideout's chances of suiting up in the Jan. 9 regular-season finale in Jacksonville wouldn't seem to be promising, as the Colts could get Parris Campbell (foot) back from injured reserve for that contest.
The Indianapolis Colts released their inactive list ahead of Saturday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Among those inactive include center Ryan Kelly, running back Marlon Mack, safety Andrew Sendejo and wide receiver Mike Strachan. Second-year center Danny Pinter will start in place of Kelly, who’s out for a second...
The Indianapolis Colts released their inactive players list ahead of Sunday’s matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Among those inactive are quarterback Sam Ehlinger, tackle Will Fries, wide receiver Mike Strachan, defensive end Ben Banogu, defensive end Isaac Rochell, cornerback Bopete Keyes and tackle Julien Davenport. T.Y. Hilton returns for the...
In what likely will come as no surprise to many, rookie wide receiver and preseason standout Mike Strachan has made the Indianapolis Colts’ final 53-man roster. The 6’5” former DII wideout was a seventh-round pick by the Colts in this past April’s draft. Strachan left a strong first impression from the start of training camp, making one highlight play after another.
Strachan caught five of seven targets for 61 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Lions. The 2021 seventh-round pick is still in the hunt for the No. 5 spot on the depth chart at wide receiver, and Strachan only helped his case by significantly out-producing Ashton Dulin (two catches for seven yards), although Dezmon Patmon (two catches for 64 yards) also made an impact with a 60-yard grab late in the second quarter to help set up a field goal. Strachan's size and speed make him intriguing, but he's likely a couple years away from refining his skills enough to make a real push for a fantasy-friendly role.
WESTFIELD — For most of his tenure in Indianapolis, Colts general manager Chris Ballard has been excellent at finding undervalued linebackers in the draft. The results were on display in a truncated practice Wednesday, a shorter session designed to make sure the Colts are ready for the competition of joint practices against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday and Friday.
When Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard made wide receiver Mike Strachan the Colts' second seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Ballard stated he believed in the height/weight/speed makeup of the University of Charleston product. Flash forward to training camp and on the field, Strachan certainly looks the part...
