Saskatchewan Roughriders RB Kory Sheets could be heading south for next year.

The Grey Cup MVP and pending free agent confirmed he will work out for the Indianapolis Colts next week.

Sheets was the second leading rusher in the CFL this past season with 1,598 yards. He also had 12 touchdowns and helped the Roughriders win just their fourth Grey Cup in team history, at home in the 101st Grey Cup.

In two years with Saskatchewan, the Purdue product combined for 2,875 rushing yards, 781 receiving yards, and 25 touchdowns.

The Colts are familiar with talent coming out of Saskatchewan, having signed LB Jerrell Freeman ahead of the 2012 season.
