Colts Place Rookie S Julian Blackmon On Active/Non-Football Injury List

The Colts announced on Monday they have placed third-round S Julian Blackmon on the active/non-football injury list. 

Blackmon is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered during his final collegiate season, so this move doesn’t come as a big surprise. 

He will count against the 90-man roster as he works his way back to playing and can come off the list at any time. 

It’s also worth mentioning this is not related to COVID-19, as there’s a separate list for players who test positive for the virus. 

Blackmon, 21, was a three-year starter at Utah and earned second-team All-American honors last season. The Colts selected him with the No. 85 pick in this year’s draft. 

He’s projected to sign a four-year, $4,628,849 rookie contract that includes a $926,437 signing bonus. 

During his four-year college career, Blackmon 158 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, nine interceptions, 20 pass defenses, two forced fumbles, and scored two defensive touchdowns.
