Colts S Malik Hooker (knee) is out for Week 11 against the Titans.

In Hooker's only missed game this season, Derek Carr completed 21-of-28 passes for 244 yards and three scores. It's an unfortunate time for Hooker to be sidelined given how the Titans' offense has performed with Marcus Mariota healthy the past two weeks. The Colts will also be without CB D.J. Killings (ankle).

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) is expected to make his preseason debut Saturday against the 49ers.

It will be Hooker's first game action since going down with a torn ACL last season. The Ohio State standout impressed as a rookie, totaling 22 tackles and three interceptions before his injury in Week 7.
Aug 21 - 4:18 PM

Colts activated FS Malik Hooker (knee) from the active/PUP list.

SS Clayton Geathers (knee) has also been activated. In the final stages of his recovery from a torn ACL, Hooker figures to be brought along slowly for the rest of camp, but he's now firmly on track to be ready for Week 1. It's not outside the realm of possibility Hooker plays some preseason snaps. The No. 15 overall pick of last year's draft, Hooker was off to a strong NFL start before going down.
Aug 2 - 3:55 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard said FS Malik Hooker (knee) will begin training camp on the active/PUP list.

Hooker is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last Week 7. The Colts are hoping he'll be able to practice by mid-August. A first-rounder out of Ohio State, the 22-year-old earned positive marks from ProFootballFocus before his injury.
Jul 20 - 2:36 PM

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) has a chance to be cleared for training camp.

Hooker is eight months removed from ACL surgery. He did some off-field work at OTAs but has been without a concrete timetable. Returning for the start of training camp would likely be a best-case scenario, though it sounds like Hooker may avoid the active/PUP list. Barring setbacks, Hooker should be ready for Week 1.

Colts FS Malik Hooker (knee) took the field at Tuesday's OTAs session, doing some backpedaling and cutting.

Sidelined since late October, this is another positive step in Hooker's recovery. The No. 15 overall pick of last year's draft is currently without a concrete timeline. He should be considered questionable for Week 1. Even if Hooker does suit up for the opener, he will likely sit out the entire preseason.
May 15 - 7:38 PM

Colts FS Malik Hooker said there's no timetable for his recovery from a torn ACL.

Hooker has begun lifting weights but hasn't advanced to any on-field work yet. The 2017 first-rounder registered 22 tackles and three interceptions in seven games last year before a torn ACL ended his season. His status for training camp is up in the air.
Apr 17 - 3:28 PM

Colts FS Malik Hooker is done for the season with a torn ACL and MCL suffered Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Brutal. The 15th overall pick in April's draft, Hooker had to be carted off the field Sunday, suggesting something serious like this was coming down the chute. An absolute ballhawk on the back end, Hooker picked off three passed his first six games before going down early in Week 7. Darius Butler and T.J. Green are going to have to fill in the rest of the way. Hooker should be ready by next year's training camp. The Colts are expected to get SS Clayton Geathers (neck, PUP) back soon.

Colts FS Malik Hooker left Week 7 against Jacksonville with a knee injury.

The Colts brought the cart out for Hooker, but he walked off the field. This still looks like a bad injury. The Colts are also without CB Rashaan Melvin (concussion).

Colts FS Malik Hooker (shoulder) is practicing in full this week.

Hooker has dealt with shoulder and hamstring issues since being drafted No. 15 overall in April, but he's been full go for a couple weeks now and will start the opener against the Rams. He projects as a centerfield ballhawk.

Colts first-round FS Malik Hooker has missed the last week of practice with a shoulder injury.

Hooker has spent more time injured than healthy since being drafted by the Colts, recovering from shoulder and sports hernia surgeries during the offseason program and opening camp on the PUP with a hamstring issue. It is unclear if this shoulder injury has anything to do with the offseason surgery. The Colts need Hooker to contribute right away, but that will be tough after all this missed time.

Colts activated first-round FS Malik Hooker from the active/PUP list.

Hooker was placed on the PUP list after tweaking his hamstring during his conditioning test. After two offseason surgeries and getting hurt early in camp, this is great news for Hooker. The Colts need him to contribute right away.

Colts first-round S Malik Hooker tweaked his hamstring during the conditioning test and will start training camp on the PUP list.

After undergoing both shoulder and sports hernia surgery, Hooker missed the entire offseason program. Projected as the starter for Indy's previously porous secondary, Hooker needs some reps before the season.

Colts first-round S Malik Hooker (shoulder, groin) will be ready for camp.

Hooker underwent shoulder and sports hernia surgeries after the season and was forced to miss the entire offseason program. He is healthy now, however, and should open the season as the starter at free safety. A ball-hawking playmaker, Hooker should be a massive upgrade for Indy's secondary.
