Updating previous reports, Cole (back) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Cole did not practice at all this week due to his back problem, so he's not expected to suit up Sunday versus Denver. His anticipated absence adds to Indianpolis' defensive injury woes and figures to result in recently-signed lineman Akeem Ayers and undrafted free agent Cur Maggitt seeing more playing time.

Cole (back) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

It's very possible that today was just a rest day for Cole, as there were no signs of injury following the team's game against the Lions on Sunday. His status at practice tomorrow will likely clear up the outside linebacker's health status.

Cole had two tackles, including a tackle for a loss, in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Cole played 39 snaps of 64 snaps on defense as he'll be in the rotation at outside linebacker. He didn't provide much reason after one game to think he'll bounce back from career-low marks for both tackles (32) and sacks (three) last season.

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.

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.
