Jonathan Hankins, an underrated defensive lineman who's had a fine season for the Colts, did not practice for Indianapolis on Wednesday due to a chest injury.
The veteran has earned a +11.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade on 524 snaps this season — which includes a +14.8 run-defense grade.
His overall grade is the 11th-best out of 44 ends who play in a 3-4 base defense. And his run-defense grade ranks third.
Hankins has made 19 stops this season, which isn't a particularly high number relative to amount of snaps he's played, but he's yet to miss a tackle. Only seven other 3-4 defensive ends haven't missed a tackle, and they've all been on the field for at least 100 fewer snaps than Hankins this season.
Wideout Donte Moncrief was spotted at the Colts facility in a walking boot and did not participate in practice with an ankle injury.
Backup center Mike Person, star cornerback Rashaan Melvin, and No. 3 tight end Darrell Daniels also did not practice. Center Ryan Kelly and defensive lineman Hassan Ridgeway were limited participants.
