Colts Remove First-Round S Malik Hooker From PUP List, Place Two On PUP

The Indianapolis Colts announced that they have removed first-round S Malik Hooker from their physically unable to perform list, and placed DE Kendall Langford and OL Brian Schwenke to the list.

The Colts placed Hooker on the PUP list last week after tweaking his hamstring during practice, so it appears Indianapolis dodged a serious injury.

Hooker, 21, was selected with the No. 15 overall pick by the Colts and is considered to be one of the best safety prospects in this year’s draft class.

He decided to forego the final two years of college eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft after earning first-team All-Big 10 honors last season.

According to OverTheCap.com, Hooker will receive a four-year contract worth $12,850,988, which includes a signing bonus of $7,486,172. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.

During his two-year college career at Ohio State, Hooker recorded 84 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, half a sack, seven interceptions, four pass defenses and three defensive touchdowns in 19 total games for the Buckeyes.

Schwenke, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Titans back in 2013. Schwenke played out his four-year, $2,624,260 contract with the Titans and signed on with the Colts as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

He signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Colts that included a $300,000 signing bonus.

In 2016, Schwenke appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and played a total of 248 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
