What did Isaiah Rodgers do?

Reports indicate a Colts player is being investigated for rampant gambling.

According to the league’s gambling policy, league personnel may not engage in “placing, soliciting or facilitating any bet, whether directly or through a third party,” on any NFL game, practice or other league event, such as the draft or combine.

League personnel are allowed to place legal bets on non-NFL sporting events, but these actions cannot take place from inside a team facility or in the course of conducting team or league business, such as boarding a plane to an event.

Penalties for breaking gambling rules can vary. In a recent case involving Detroit Lions players, players received either 6-game suspensions or indefinite suspensions lasting at least 1 year.

The Indiana Gaming Commission said that it had received “information pertaining to this matter” and was following developments.

“The IGC is not the lead agency on this matter, as it involves alleged violations of a league policy at this point,” Jenny Reske, deputy director at the Indiana Gaming Commission, wrote in an emailed statement to ESPN. “We will, however, continue to review information as it emerges to determine what, if any, regulatory actions are necessary.”

There is not yet any indication that Rodgers broke any laws.

Can you bet on NFL games?

The NFL has partnerships with three sportsbooks, according to ESPN: Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel. Sports betting became legal in Indiana in 2019. The NFL does not consider fantasy leagues to be gambling.

The league has been criticized for profiting from gambling while suspending players for doing it but the NFL and the NFL Players Association negotiated the rules currently in place.
