Colts LB Opts Out Of Season

 

Linebacker Skai Moore has become the first Indianapolis Colts player to opt out of playing the 2020 season because of the coronavirus.

NFL players have until Thursday at 4 p.m. EDT to say they are skipping the season. Nearly 50 players have done so.

Moore has been a backup linebacker and special teams player the last two seasons for Indy. He appeared in a total of 10 games over those two seasons.

Players who opt out voluntarily will receive a $150,000 stipend. Those who receive a medical opt out will receive $350,000.
