Wilson faced up against seasoned journeyman Rashaan Melvin for the position of No. 2 starting cornerback during training camp after Patrick Robinson left in free agency.

Wilson was ranked third among the cornerbacks on the depth chart by head coach Chuck Pagano, behind Vontae Davis and Rashaan Melvin.

In the Indianapolis Colts’ season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, he played in his first regular-season game as a professional and made one tackle in their defeat of 46-9.

After Vontae Davis missed the first three games with a groin ailment, he was given his first career start the following week. Wilson made two total tackles and two pass breakups in the Arizona Cardinals’ 16-13 defeat.

Before the Colts’ victory over the Cleveland Brown in Week 3 of the season, Wilson worsened a knee ailment he sustained during the preseason.

He skipped the next ten games (Weeks 3-12). Prior to Week 6, Wilson’s knee injury healed, but he didn’t return to action.

Wilson was listed as a healthy scratch by head coach Chuck Pagano because he couldn’t participate on special teams, but it was thought this was only a minor impact. When asked why he wasn’t playing, Wilson responded, “I don’t know.”
