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. Nov 10 - 12:01 PM

Date:

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.
Nov 4 - 2:28 PM

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.
Nov 1 - 3:40 PM

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.
Sep 29 - 4:40 PM

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.
Jan 10 - 1:35 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.
Jan 8 - 12:41 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.
Jan 7 - 6:34 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.
Jan 4 - 9:00 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.

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.
Wed, Oct 16, 2013 04:12:00 PM

Colts declared SS LaRon Landry, OLB Bjoern Werner, RB Dan Herron, C Khaled Holmes, T Xavier Nixon, DT Montori Hughes, and ILB Kavell Conner inactive for Monday night's Week 6 game against the Chargers.

Nor surprises here. Landry has an ankle injury but is expected to have a decent chance of returning next week. Delano Howell will start in his place once again. Werner is dealing with a foot issue. OLB Erik Walden (elbow) was listed as questionable but will play. The Colts are relatively healthy.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 07:22:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Chargers.

Landry didn't practice at all this week, so this comes as no surprise. Delano Howell will get another start. Look for Landry to return next week.
Sat, Oct 12, 2013 12:50:00 PM

Colts SS LaRon Landry (ankle) did not practice Friday and is expected to miss Week 6 against the Chargers.

Per beat writer Stephen Holder, Landry's most likely return date is Week 7 against the Broncos. Expect Delano Howell to start Monday night at San Diego.
Fri, Oct 11, 2013 04:25:00 PM

The Colts expect SS LaRon Landry (ankle) and DE Ricky Jean-Francois (groin) back in Week 6.

They've both been ruled out for Week 5 against the Seahawks. The Colts' defense didn't miss a beat without Landry or "RJF" last week, though they were facing Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars. Landry and Jean-Francois are both core run defenders. Their absences improve Marshawn Lynch's fantasy matchup.
