  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Collects sack in loss

    Paye recorded five tackles and one sack during Saturday's 39-36 overtime loss to the Vikings.

    In Paye's second contest back from a two-game absence due to an ankle injury, he logged a sack for the second straight week, making it the fourth in the last six matchups for which he's suited up. The 261-pounder is expected to retain a prominent role on Indianapolis' defensive line when the team hosts the Chargers next Monday night.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Nine tackles in return from

    Paye logged nine tackles (six solo), including one sack, during Sunday's 54-19 defeat versus the Cowboys.

    Paye logged a season high in tackles while making his return from a two-game hiatus with an ankle injury. The 2021 first-round pick also logged his fifth sack of the season, and he's been a relatively effective pass rusher when healthy this season. While Paye did not appear to be limited by this lingering ankle issue, playing his usual share of the Colts' defensive snaps despite the blowout nature of this loss, he'll have an extra week to heal up while the team is on bye Week 14.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Full go Thursday

    Paye (ankle) was listed as a full participant on the Colts' injury report Thursday.

    Paye sustained a high-ankle sprain during Week 5's overtime win against Denver and was sidelined for the Colts' following three games. The 24-year-old was then able to return Week 9 versus New England, but he appeared to aggravate this issue in the next game versus Las Vegas and has missed the Colts' last two games as a result. Paye has now been deemed a full participant for the second day in a row Thursday, so he should be set to reprise a starting role against the Cowboys on Sunday.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Remains out Week 12

    Paye (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Steelers.

    Paye will miss his second game in a row after being forced out with an ankle injury during the Colts' Week 10 win over the Raiders. The second-year defensive end was also sidelined for three straight games with an ankle issue earlier this season, though he has recorded 24 tackles and four sacks over seven contests in 2022. With the availability of starting defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (back) also up in the air, Dayo Odeyingbo and Ifeadi Odenigbo could both stand to see increased usage versus Pittsburgh.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Ruled out for Week 11

    Paye (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

    Paye departed last Sunday's win over the Raiders with an ankle injury and ultimately failed to return. He's since been unable to practice in any capacity heading into the Week 11 matchup versus Philadelphia, so Dayo Odeyingbo and Yannick Ngakoue are now in line to serve as the Colts' top defensive ends Sunday.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Forced out Sunday

    Paye (ankle) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Raiders, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

    Paye did not practice Friday and was considered questionable with an ankle injury heading into Sunday's game, though it's unclear if he aggravated this existing issue during the contest. The second-year defensive end did not log a defensive statistic before exiting, and his absence should leave Dayo Odeyingbo and Ifeadi Odenigbo to see increased usage in the second half. Paye's next chance to play will come against the Eagles on Sunday, Nov. 20.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Ready to go Sunday

    Paye (ankle) is active Sunday against the Raiders.

    Paye was non-participant in practice Friday, but he'll suit up Sunday in Las Vegas. The second-year pro's availability is good news for Colts' pass rush.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Questionable Sunday

    Paye (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    Paye fully participated in practice Wednesday and Thursday but was unable to take the field Friday due to an ankle injury. If he's unavailable in Week 10, Dayo Odeyingbo and Ifeadi Odenigbo will likely see increased playing time.

  • Colts' Kwity Paye: Notches sack in return

    Paye recorded eight tackles (seven solo), including one sack, in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Patriots.

    Paye played 46 defensive snaps and finished as the Colts' leading tackler after sitting out the last three weeks with a high-ankle sprain. The second-year pass rusher also logged his fourth sack of the season as he brought down quarterback Mac Jones for a six-yard loss in the first quarter. Paye has now collected 24 stops (19 solo) across six games played in 2022, and he should easily set career highs in tackles and sacks so long as he stays healthy over the back half of the season.
