The Indianapolis Colts have sorely missed the talents of center Ryan Kelly in recent weeks as he deals with a knee injury. His impact has been large anchoring a suddenly strong offensive line.

Though the Colts haven't had their starting center since he left the Week 12 win against the Miami Dolphins, he is still among Pro Football Focus' top 25 offensive linemen, rounding out the list at No. 25.

25. RYAN KELLY, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

2018 Overall Grade: 74.0

Kelly had a rocky start to his career after being selected in the first round back in 2016. He's now one of the biggest reasons for the Colts offensive line turnaround. Kelly hasn't allowed a single sack or hit since Week 3.

Kelly was playing at a Pro Bowl level before his knee injury knocked him out for two consecutive games. Under new head coach Frank Reich and offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo, Kelly has been the anchor of an offensive line that is now considered one of the best units in the league.

The Colts have been rolling with Evan Boehm and Josh Andrews while Kelly works to get back on the field, but it can't be understated how much of an impact the 2016 first-round pick has had on the offensive line.

The Colts hope Kelly gets back to practice soon as they make their push toward the final wild card spot in the AFC.
