INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts are planning to honor a former linebacker killed in a traffic accident at this Sunday's home game. 

Edwin Jackson was killed along with his Uber driver back when a drunk driver struck them on the I-70 shoulder back in February. 

The 37-year-old who hit them received the max sentence of 16 years for the crash
