Cole agreed to reduce this 2016 base salary from $4.25 million to $2 million, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

EDGE Analysis

After recording career-low marks for both tackles (32) and sacks (three) in his first season with Indianapolis, the 33-year-old Cole had to accept a reduced salary to avoid being released. He'll largely be limited to passing downs next season, and the Colts will probably try to secure a young pass rusher within the first two days of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Cole has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Tennessee due to a concussion, Fox 59 TV in Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cole has been a bust in the first season of a two-year, $16 million contract as he had just three sacks and 32 tackles in 14 games. It's not clear if he'll be ready for the postseason if the Colts miraculously qualify for the playoffs.

Cole had three total tackles and his first sack for the Colts in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Cole has been a bust after signing a two-year, $16 million contract before the season. However, there's always a chance he could rally late in the season.

Cole (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

With just five tackles in two games for the Colts to date, a wait-and-see approach is in order from an IDP perspective when it comes to Cole.

Cole (knee) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Kevin Bowen of colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cole wasn't able to play Sunday against the Titans after registering as a late addition to the teams' injury report last week. While his practice status Thursday certainly seems to indicate he could play against the Jaguars this Sunday, we will know more information about his availability Friday.

Cole (knee) did not travel with the team to Tennessee, Mike Chappell of Indy Sports Central reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cole played in the Colts' first two games and recorded five tackles (two solo), but was unable to provide much of a pass rush. He was a late entry on Indianapolis' injury report this week, practicing on a limited basis Thursday before missing practice entirely on Friday and it now seems like he is unlikely to play Sunday. If he's unable to go, Robert Mathis could see additional snaps with the rest of the starting linebackers.

Cole started at outside linebacker, but had just one tackle and two quarterback hurries in Sunday's loss at Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Cole played almost all the snaps on defense (46 of 59) but didn't show much. His pass rush skills were not needed much when the Colts fell behind 24-0, so he should improve.
