Malik Hooker (Achilles) out for the rest of the season

It has been confirmed that Colts S Malik Hooker tore his Achilles on Sunday and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Hooker was a first-round pick by Indianapolis in 2017 but has missed 14 games to various injuries since entering the league. The Colts also declined to pick up his 5th-year option. When on the field Hooker has been productive, recording multiple interceptions in each of his first three seasons with the team. This is a blow to a Colts D/ST and for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations.

Malik Hooker is feared to have a torn Achilles

Malik Hooker was injured in Sunday's 28-11 win over the Vikings. The Colts fear that he has torn his Achilles, which would certainly be a season-ender. He will have an MRI on Monday to confirm.

Fantasy Impact

Hooker, a 2017 first-round pick, has been an integral part of the Colts defense over the last few years. Throughout his four-year career he has missed a minimum of two games per season but has swiped seven interceptions. Geroge Odum would be the next man up to play free safety if Hooker has to miss time.

Malik Hooker’s fifth-year option will not be picked up by the Colts

The Indianapolis Colts will not pick up the fifth-year option on S Malik Hooker.

Fantasy Impact

The former 2017 first round pick out of Ohio State is now set to become a free agent after the 2020 season. In his three-year career with the Colts, Hooker has recorded 117 tackles and seven INTs in 34 games played. He’s missed 14 games in total due to injury. He should have a bit of extra motivation in a contract year this season to prove to a team that he’s worth a long-term contract extension.

Malik Hooker posts 10 tackles in win

Malik Hooker had a busy day against the Buccaneers, recording nine solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one QB hit, and one interception, though the Colts still lost, 38-35.

Fantasy Impact

Hooker isn't known for his tackling numbers, recording more than seven tackles in a game just once before today. Asking for more than five fantasy points a game from the talented safety is stretch, so he's probably best left on your waiver wire.

Malik Hooker downgraded to out

Colts safety Malik Hooker (hip) has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Hooker has been dealing with a hip injury since Week 7 but was able to play through it last week. He was unable to practice all this week, though, and after originally being listed as questionable, the team downgraded him to out Saturday morning. Veteran Mike Mitchell will see more action in his absence. The Colts also ruled out tight end Ryan Hewitt (ankle), cornerback D.J. Killings (ankle) and tight end Erik Swoope (knee), while cornerback Nate Hairston (ankle) remains questionable.
