Nate Irving: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Irving is progressing well in his rehab from an ACL injury, the Colts' official site reports. "Heís ahead of schedule as far as the rehab goes," coach Chuck Pagano noted of Irving earlier this month.

The hope remains that Irving is on track to take the field during training camp, though he may not be full-go on that front right away. "The docs and the trainers are optimistic that thereís a possibility that by August 1 he might be ready to get back in the fold and do some things, but itís not 100 percent," Pagano cautioned. Once he's up to speed, Irving, who recorded 46 tackles in eight games for Denver in 2014, will have a chance to compete for a starting inside linebacker job for the Colts.
Irving (knee) is targeting training camp for a potential return, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Irving continues to rehab from an ACL issue, and the Colts were the club willing to gamble on him with a three-year contract, despite the injury. If he can return to full health, there's a possibility he'll compete for playing time at inside linebacker, but he could also serve as a member of the Colts' special teams unit. Irving finished the 2014 campaign with 46 tackles (26 solo) and one sack over eight games with the Broncos.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Irving is expected to be the Broncos' starting middle linebacker this season, which could afford him some decent tackle numbers. Danny Trevathan continues to be the upside IDP linebacker, but with Von Miller primarily focused on rushing the passer, Irving should be given ample snaps to find the ball-carrier.

2013

Will likely slot in as one of the starting middle linebackers after Joe Mays was released in July.

2012

Expected to back up Joe Mays at middle linebacker.

2011

Like Kelvin Sheppard and Mason Foster, Irving is a talented rookie who could instantly turn into a standout IDP in the right situation. Irving is a high-motor playmaker who, despite having the tendency to play a bit reckless, figures to be a natural fit in coach John Foxís attack-style 4-3 defense. The loosely expected outcome with the Denver linebackers is D.J. Williams on the weak side, Von Miller on the strong side and Irving in the middle. If that ends up being the case, send Irving way up the list. He figures to be a menace to NFL backfields after totaling 32.5 tackles for loss the last two years at North Carolina State.
