  • Colts' JuJu Brents: Limited to nine games as a rookie

    Brents (hamstring) recorded 43 tackles (30 solo), six passes defended with one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across nine regular-season games with the Colts in 2023.

    Brents dealt with injuries during his rookie campaign, beginning with a pre-draft wrist issue. He then suffered a mid-season quad injury that forced him to miss six games, and a hamstring issue that forced him out of Indianapolis' season finale. Brents' hamstring injury doesn't appear to be something that will impact his availability for training camp, however. He's said that his focus during the offseason will be on improving his durability, per Nate Atkins of the Indianapolis Star.

  • Colts' JuJu Brents: Returns from quad injury

    Brents started at cornerback and had four total tackles in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh.

    Brents struggled in coverage after sitting out since Week 7 due to a quad injury, as he allowed three receptions on five targets for 58 yards, according to Pro Football Focus. However, his return helps improve a thin and struggling secondary, and he may have just needed to get back up to speed. He played on 54 of the defense's 58 snaps.

  • Colts' JuJu Brents: Logs second full practice

    Brents (quadriceps) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

    Brents was also a full participant Tuesday; however, the team only held a walkthrough as opposed to a more typical practice Wednesday. Barring a setback, the rookie corner should be a full go for the remainder of the week and suit up Saturday against the Steelers, which would be his first action since Week 7.

  • Colts' JuJu Brents: Won't play Sunday

    Brents (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Brents was able to log back-to-back limited practice sessions to end the week, but it appears it wasn't enough for him to be ready for Sunday's contest. This will be the sixth game in a row that Brents will miss after sustaining a quadriceps injury Week 7 against the Browns. Jaylon Jones should continue to start at corner opposite Kenny Moore while Darrell Baker operates in the slot corner position.

  • Colts' JuJu Brents: Questionable for Sunday

    Brents (quadriceps) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Brents began the Colts' week of practice with a DNP, but he logged limited sessions Thursday and Friday, and he's now got a chance to play Sunday. The rookie cornerback out of Kansas State has missed Indianapolis' last five games, and if he's unable to suit up again in Week 14, Darrell Baker and Jaylon Jones should see increased work in the team's secondary.

    Brents (quadriceps) logged a limited practice Thursday.
