Geathers had neck surgery in March and is uncertain for Week 1. He is expected to begin the season on the PUP list.

Summary

Clayton Geathers got the starting nod in week three of the 2016 season and never looked back. In most weeks, he played 100% of the snaps. A neck injury that ended his season in the ninth contest cut short his breakout season. He excels at playing the run, so he'll be asked to play in the box while newly-drafted Malik Hooker will take on free safety responsibilities. Geathers was placed on the PUP to start the regular season, meaning he'll miss at least the first six weeks. He's an excellent candidate to come in and make a meaningful impact later in the season, however. One of the Indianapolis safety spots has generated a top 25 finish the past four years running. It's conceivable that Geathers could be a forgotten man at first, but finish strong for owners, especially with a very unproven linebacker corps stationed ahead of him. (July 24)
