NFL suspended free agent S LaRon Landry indefinitely.
A habitual PED-abuser, Landry just recently returned from a 10-game ban. It's unclear what his latest suspension is for, but it should just about end his career. Landry turned 31 last month, and hasn't generated any known interest since getting cut loose by the Colts last February. Tue, Nov 24, 2015 05:22:00 PM

NFL suspended free agent SS LaRon Landry 10 games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

It's Landry second PED suspension after missing four games last year. Already in steep decline, Landry's latest suspension puts him in danger of falling out of the league. 30-year-old Landry hasn't drawn any interest since being released by the Colts. PFF graded Landry as a bottom-50 safety in 2014.

Colts released SS LaRon Landry.

The Colts are in fine shape with the salary cap, so this is more a performance-based decision, although the move does save $2.25 million against the cap and $4 million in cash. Landry, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2007 draft, was slapped with a four-game suspension during the season because of PEDs and struggled to regain his starting job next to FS Mike Adams. He gets routinely burned in coverage and is merely average in run support. Landry, 30, seems more interested in his physique than being good at football. He's free to sign elsewhere immediately.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells does not expect SS LaRon Landry to return in 2015.

Landry was suspended four games for using performance-enhancing drugs last season and struggled to regain his starting role from special-teamer Sergio Brown after he returned from suspension. Indianapolis could save $2.25 million by releasing Landry, but they are already in great cap position for 2015 and are extremely thin in the secondary. Landry could stick around, but he will not be promised a starting job.

Colts SS LaRon Landry will play in Sunday night's game against the Patriots, but won't start.

The Colts defense has held up surprisingly well with Sergio Brown starting during Landry's suspension. So Landry will have to earn his job back slowly. Perhaps we'll see a rotation of sorts Sunday night.
Mon, Nov 10, 2014 12:01:00 PM

Colts activated SS LaRon Landry from the reserve/suspended list.

Landry could have returned for Monday's game against the Giants, but the Colts used their one-week roster exemption. Landry was ineffective before getting slapped with a four-game PED suspension in late September. He's tentatively expected to regain his starting position from Sergio Brown, but could be in for fewer snaps than he was before getting banned.

Colts SS LaRon Landry will not play in Monday night's game against the Giants.

Landry is eligible to return from his suspension, but the Colts will use a one-week roster exemption. He'll now need to be activated no later than Tuesday. Landry was struggling prior to going down, but is expected to regain his starting job.

NFL suspended Colts SS LaRon Landry four games for violating the league's policy against performance enhancing drugs.

He'll be out until Week 9. There are no details available on Landry's ban, but it's probably not particularly surprising based on his physique. Landry struggled in both pass and run defense in the Colts' first four games, but is a "tone setter" in the back end, theoretically at least. He had 23 tackles and a sack. Sergio Brown figures to be the next man up across from FS Mike Adams.

Colts SS LaRon Landry (concussion) is listed as probable for the Divisional Round.

He's going to play against the Patriots after taking a knee to the helmet during last week's comeback triumph over Kansas City. Landry finished the regular season with 87 tackles and two pass breakups across a dozen games.
Fri, Jan 10, 2014 01:35:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (concussion) has been cleared to practice.

Landry took a knee to the helmet late in last week's wild comeback win over the Chiefs. His return to practice means he's on track to get cleared in time to play in Saturday night's game at New England. It's a major boost for the Colts as they'll need his coverage skills if they'll have any prayer of slowing down Tom Brady.
Wed, Jan 8, 2014 12:41:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (concussion) has yet to be cleared to practice.

Landry has just four more days to get cleared for Saturday's Divisional Round showdown with the Patriots. Were Landry not cleared, the Colts would be forced to go with Sergio Brown opposite Antoine Bethea. Corey Lynch would also likely see snaps.
Tue, Jan 7, 2014 06:34:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry suffered a concussion in Saturday's Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Landry was staggered in the fourth quarter after taking a knee to the helmet. He's now in a race against time to get cleared for the Divisional Round. Landry has had a mixed first season in Indy, grading out negatively in Pro Football Focus' safety ratings (No. 46 of 86). He had an embarrassing missed tackle on Dwayne Bowe's 63-yard reception Saturday. Landry's status will be updated next week.
Sat, Jan 4, 2014 09:00:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (ankle) is active for Sunday night's Week 7 game against the Broncos.

Landry will return to the starting lineup after missing the last four weeks with an ankle injury. CB Darius Butler (groin) and ILB Kelvin Sheppard (hamstring) are also active despite being listed as questionable. Inactive for the Colts are OLB Bjoern Werner, TE Dominique Jones, NT Josh Chapman, WR David Reed, LT Xavier Nixon, C Khaled Holmes, and DT Montori Hughes.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 07:19:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry will return from his high ankle sprain in Week 7 against the Broncos.

Landry was an early-season sparkplug and enforcer in the back half of Indy's defense, and his return will be welcomed against Peyton Manning Sunday night. Landry still makes more of his impact on the ground as a box safety.
Fri, Oct 18, 2013 12:46:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's his first time practicing since Week 2. Barring a setback, Landry has a legitimate chance to play in Sunday night's game against the Broncos.
