Performance Splits: 2020 to 2022
Career Stats by Season: 2020 to 2022
Blackmon started at strong safety and had five tackles in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.
Blackmon had an off day in coverage by allowing three receptions on four targets for 42 yards, according to Pro Football Focus. However, he enters the regular season healthy after missing time in training camp to a hamstring injury. Blackmon played all 70 snaps on defense. A return to full strength is a good sign since he's struggled to stay on the field. The 2020 third-rounder was limited to six games in 2021 due to an Achilles injury and last season he missed three games and parts of another due to an ankle injury.
Blackmon (hamstring) will practice Tuesday, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Blackmon has yet to practice with his team, as he's been sidelined by the injury since camp opened. He'll now have just under four weeks to get ready for the team's season opener against the Jaguars.
Blackmon (hamstring) will return "hopefully sooner than later," according to head coach Shane Steichen, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Blackmon has yet to participate in training camp due to the injury, but it appears his absences could be coming to an end soon. Steichen mentioned last Thursday that the Utah product was progressing well in his recovery, but he's still not quite 100 percent.
Blackmon continues to make progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury, JJ Stankevitz of the Colts' official site reports.
Blackmon remains sidelined, but he's progressing well and doing a good job with his rehab, according to head coach Shane Steichen. The 24-year-old has been out of action since training camp started, but with Week 1 still over a month away, the Colts' projected starter at free safety still has several weeks to make a full recovery.
Blackmon (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday and remains without a return timetable, JJ Stankevitz of the Colts' official site reports.
Blackmon didn't join his teammates on the field for the first day of training camp. The starting safety has plenty of time to heal up before the Colts kick off the regular season Sept. 10 against the Jaguars. The team's preseason opener is Aug. 12 in Buffalo.
