S - FA
Week 8 Outlook
Colts safety Mike Mitchell has been ruled out for Week 10 due to a calf injury.
Mitchell suffered the injury in the win against the Raiders prior to the Week 9 bye. He was unable to practice all week and was ultimately ruled out Friday. Corey Moore will likely play in his absence.
Colts safety Mike Mitchell has been named AFC defensive player of the week for Week 7. He recorded seven tackles, one forced fumble, and an interception in the 37-5 win over the lowly Bills.
Mitchell has only been with the team for a few weeks but is already having a major impact. He was signed after Clayton Geathers suffered a concussion in Week 5. The Raiders are up next in Week 8.
Forner Pittsburgh Steeler free safety Michael Mitchell has now joined the list of players to visit Tennessee. He'll be vying for the job opening left by Johnathan Cyprien's (ACL) departure for the season.
Mitchell will be joining Johnathan Cyprien and Eric Reid in addition to any other free agent they may add in the coming days. There is one development that Kevin Byard fantasy owners might want to pay attention to with the former free safety Mitchell being added to the list. Byard had spent a lot of time switching positions on the field with Cyprien toward the playoff run last season due to Cypriens lack of coverage skills. Are the Titans open to moving Byard to strong safety? That could have a major impact on his IDP value. It would likely increase with more tackle opportunities.
Steelers activate new S Mike Mitchell from PUP list. Will practice today.
According to the initial depth chart released today, Mitchell is the projected starter at Free Safety. In 2013 with the Panthers, Mitchell recorded 66 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 4 INTs. Mitchell will be an integral part of the Steelers backfield and will have four weeks to get ready for the season opener. The 6th year vet has a current Expert Consensus Ranking (ECR) of 40 which is 20 spots higher than his backfield mate of Polamalu.
