Sheard recorded a half sack in Sunday's 19-13 win over the Chiefs.
Sheard and Kemoko Turay (ankle) combined for the final sack on Patrick Mahomes, forcing the Chiefs to kick a field goal. The Chiefs didn't recover the onside kick and ended up losing their first game of the season. Sheard now has five tackles and 0.5 sacks through two contests.
Sheard (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Sheard's knee injury limited him in practice all week, but he's successfully made enough progress in his recovery to retake the field. The veteran defensive end looks primed for his usual starting role versus Oakland.
Sheard (knee) has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders.
Sheard was limited at practice all week, which is progress from where he was. With Al-Quadin Muhammad (neck) already questionable, Ben Banogu and Kemoko Turay would be in line for healthy workloads at defensive end should he end up not being able to make his season debut. Final confirmation on his status will come closer to kickoff.
Sheard (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Sheard didn't practice at all last week, so he is making progress this week. However, the team isn't counting on him being in the lineup Sunday versus the Raiders, as he'll likely make a push for Week 5's game versus the Chiefs. He'll still have a chance to get in this week, but the team doesn't want to rush him.
