Description: Indianapolis Colts linebacker Robert Mathis suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while working out in Atlanta last week and is out for the season.
Insight: Mathis was in Atlanta working out because of his suspension for the first four games of this season for violating the substance abuse policy. The Colts looked like they missed him as they put very little pressure on Peyton Manning Sunday night. Indianapolis will have to look for a pass rush somewhere else without Mathis this season.

Description: Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy.
Insight: Mathis had 19.5 sacks in 2013 and finished as the runner-up to Luke Kuechly for Defensive Player of the Year. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Mathis tested positive for a male fertility drug that is on the NFL's list of banned substances.

Insight: He was excused from the game as a precautionary measure, but this is definitely raising eyebrows as the Colts have a history of devastating defensive injuries. For now, don't overreact, but definitely keep an eye on this situation.

Description: Colts DL Robert Mathis wants a new deal and it's pretty obvious that he's ready to sit out the season until he gets one. SOURCE: FOX SPORTS
Insight: Mathis signed a five-year deal for $30 million in 2006, and (so far) has collected over $27 million of it. A person close to Mathis was recently quoted as saying... "He'll never play another snap there under that (existing) contract." Mathis probably deserves a new contract, but the Colts aren't likely to give it to him, meaning he could be traded or might just have to sit the season out.

Description: Mathis will be a starter in the Colts' lineup this season. He mostly played on passing downs last year.
Insight: Mathis led Indianapolis with 11.5 sacks last year, so it makes sense that they want him on the field as much as possible. (SportsBuff.com)

Questionable11/15/2008 12:24:00 PM
Description: Mathis is listed as questionable with a foot injury. He was a full practice participant on Friday, though, and doctors said Thursday that he should be able to play.
Insight: Mathis is a solid IDP line starter against the Texans. Go ahead and use him. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Mathis had a huge day against the Ravens, tallying three sacks to go with six solo tackles and a forced fumble.
Insight: Mathis is often among the league leaders in forced fumbles and is a constant threat for a multi-sack game. He's generally worth a start in a DL spot. (SportsBuff.com)
