The Indianapolis Colts will honor Edwin Jackson, the former Colts linebacker who lost his life this past February 4 in a traffic accident in Indianapolis, at the team's Sept. 30 home game vs. the Houston Texans.
All Colts players will wear an "EJ" helmet decal, while coaches and staff will wear an "EJ" lapel pin.
Also before the game, the team will present Jackson's family, who will be in attendance, with a $25,000 donation to the Edwin Jackson 53 Foundation, which was established earlier this year to celebrate Jackson's life and accomplishments.
The team also will honor Jackson with a video tribute and in a special edition of The Scout, the team's gameday publication.
Jackson spent three seasons (2015-17) with the Colts. He spent the 2017 season on the team's Injured Reserve list. In 2016, Jackson played in all 16 games (eight starts) and compiled 61 tackles (42 solo), 1.0 tackle for loss, 2.0 sacks and 10 special teams stops. He finished third on the team in total tackles.
As a rookie in 2015, Jackson spent time on the Colts practice squad. He participated in the Arizona Cardinals' 2015 offseason program and training camp prior to signing with Indianapolis. Jackson originally signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent on May 5, 2015 out of Georgia Southern.
