Frank Gore - RBPosted 11/25/15 5:11pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Gore was injured in Sunday's game in Falcons, and while there's no extra concern over a missed Wednesday, his status the rest of the week will need to be closely monitored.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 11/23/15 12:20am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (knee) said he banged up his knee in the Week 11 game against the Atlanta Falcons, but he expects to be fine.
Huddle Up: Gore was seen limping on the sidelines and was replaced by Ahmad Bradshaw. His injury is something to monitor over the next couple of days but it looks like he avoided anything serious.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 11/19/15 6:30pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore has had restrictions on his workload thus far, but the Colts have given indications that they could unleash Gore with QB Andrew Luck (kidney) out. 'If he's rolling like that,' head coach Chuck Pagano said, 'and we're staying balanced and he feels good, we're going to do what we have to do to win the ball game.' Gore had 28 carries in Week 10 and said he felt fine because he hasn't taken many square hits. RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been working as the third-down back and given the team good pass protection and reliable hands as a receiver.
Huddle Up: Gore's 29 touches in Week 9 resulted in his first 100-plus-total-yard outing (102) of the season and played a big role in the Colts' win, so there's little reason why Indy won't want to keep a good thing going. Sunday's opponent -- the Falcons -- though, have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs this season so eekp your expectations reasonable.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 11/17/15 2:11pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney) is being sought to change his running style by head coach Chuck Pagano. 'We're going to talk every day until he figures it out and we figure it out as a team,' Pagano said. 'He knows full well that he can't do that. He can't put himself and this team in jeopardy. You love the grit, and you love the toughness and all that stuff. But playing the position like a linebacker? You can't.' Asked whether Luck can do anything in terms of conditioning at the moment, Pagano suggested that wasn't in the immediate plans.
Huddle Up: Luck's rushing ability -- he's currently ranked eighth among QBs with 196 yards despite missing two games -- has been a key part of his fantasy success, but on the flip side, it's tough to put up fantasy points when you're out and injured and in street clothes.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 11/11/15 8:59am ET
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (kidney, abdominal) is expected to miss at least a month, realistically, with a lacerated kidney and abdominal muscle injury, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.
Huddle Up: The initial timetable was two to six weeks, and a month falls squarely within those boundaries. With the Colts on bye this week, a one-month absence would return Luck for a favorable fantasy playoff schedule that kicks off with the Jaguars in Week 14 and also includes the Texans in Week 15 and the Dolphins in Week 16.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 11/10/15 3:21pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) will miss two to six weeks with an abdominal tear and a lacerated kidney he suffered in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos in Week 9. Luck will not need surgery, however. QB Matt Hasselbeck will start in Luck's place.
Huddle Up: Crushing blow for the Colts and Luck owners just when it appeared the QB had turned things around with his even-better-than-the- numbers 252-yard, two-TD performance against the previously unbeaten Broncos. At least Indy's Week 10 bye gives Luck an extra week, but if it turns out to be a five-or-six week absence, that will cover the remainder of the fantasy regular season in most leagues. The 40-year-old Hasselbeck averaged 247.5 yards and threw three TD passes in guiding Indy to wins in Weeks 4 and 5, but downgrade the Colts' pass-catchers a notch or two as long as Luck is out.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 11/8/15 11:51pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore ran 28 times for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos. He added one receptions for 19 yards and was targeted three times.
Huddle Up: There's been a lot of criticism of the Colts' offense this year but Gore has emerged as a productive fantasy option. He'll remain a high-end RB2 for the rest of the season.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 11/6/15 10:20am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Hilton has yet to practice this week, and the fact that the Colts are already labeling him a GTD doesn't bode well for him getting in any practice time this week. Couple that with a tough matchup and you should start looking now for a backup plan for your fantasy lineup this week.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 11/5/15 10:05am ET
Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) had an MRI on his left foot earlier this week and was wearing a protective boot after the game Monday, Nov. 2. It's unknown if he'll miss time.
Huddle Up: It's another tough matchup for the Indy passing game, and with Hilton banged up you should be looking for Week 9 alternatives sooner rather than later.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 11/5/15 4:37pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) is out of practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Things are looking bleaker by the day for Hilton and his fantasy owners, and if the WR can't show he can be effective Friday, the Colts could very well decide to sit him down on Sunday and give him extra time to recover through the team's Week 10 bye.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 11/4/15 4:21pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton suffered a foot sprain recently and is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: As if the struggling Indy offense didn't have enough to worry about, there's this, and Hilton's participation level in practice this week will need to be closely monitored. In any case, Hilton was limited to a season-worst one reception for 15 yards in the Week 8 OT loss to the Panthers and up next are the Broncos and their shutdown secondary so it hardly looks promising any way you slice it this week with Andrew Luck's top target.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 11/4/15 11:01pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 4. Luck did work with the first-team offense during the media-access portion of practice.
Huddle Up: Luck is just getting a day of rest. He'll start and be a low-end QB1 this week against an elite Broncos' pass defense.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 11/4/15 11:06pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: There is a report that Hilton had an MRI on his foot earlier in the week. It's certainly something to monitor in the next couple of days. Andrew Luck's fantasy value would take a hit if Hilton is out this week.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 11/3/15 1:12am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 23-of-47 passes for 231 yards, two TDs and three interceptions while rushing for 35 yards on six carries Monday, Nov. 2 in a 29-26 overtime loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Luck tossed multiple TD passes for the fourth straight game and matched his season high in rushing yards in rallying the Colts from a 17-point fourth quarter deficit, but his turnovers continue to be a major issue for the 3-5 Colts and his overall fantasy production as he had his fifth game with two or more interceptions to take the league lead with 12 picks on the year. His interception in overtime set up the Panthers' game-winning field goal. It certainly doesn't get any easier as the Broncos' fearsome defense awaits next Sunday.
Phillip Dorsett - WRPosted 10/27/15 3:40pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (leg) is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, Oct. 27, to repair his fractured leg. Dorsett is expected to miss four to six weeks and said he believes he will be able to play again this season.
Huddle Up: Tough break for the first-round pick, but it does add a little clarity to the Indy WR situation with veteran Andre Johnson now the clear No. 3 WR behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.
Phillip Dorsett - WRPosted 10/25/15 9:07pm ET
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts rookie WR Phillip Dorsett (ankle) suffered a fractured ankle in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints and he is expected to miss four to six weeks, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Dorsett hasn't made much of an impact as a rookie and now he'll miss at least a month. Dorsett will have to wait until 2016 to make a fantasy splash.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/24/15 3:59pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore will continue to see a limited amount of snaps per game this season because the team entered the season with a certain amount of carries they wanted Gore to receive.
Huddle Up: Gore is 32-years-old but still averaging almost 17 touches a game. Gore will remain an RB2 for the rest of the year.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 10/23/15 3:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (undisclosed) was out of practice Friday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: The "DNP" designation was cause for alarm as Hilton had fully participated the previous two days, but the Colts officially listed the WR as having a rest day and did not assign him with a game-status tag, meaning he's definitely expected to play. Check to make sure over the weekend -- especially before kickoff -- though, just in case.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 10/17/15 3:56pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief is on his way to being the Colts' No. 2 wide receiver behind WR T.Y. Hilton, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.com. Wells said Luck and Moncrief have developed a rapport and that Moncrief's size, speed and big-play ability have made him one of QB Andrew Luck's favorite targets.
Huddle Up: Moncrief has been the Colts' No.2 receiver all year, so this isn't exactly breaking news. As long as Luck is healthy, Moncrief is at least a WR3 this week and going forward.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/15/15 6:11pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Although Luck has reportedly has shown strides this week, a return to the field for Sunday night's AFC Championship Game rematch against the Patriots still remains in question. Hopefully we should gain some more clarity in the new few days.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 10/14/15 4:09pm ET
Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) re-signed with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, Oct. 14, on a one-year deal, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw, who totaled 725 yards and scored eight TDs in 10 games last season prior to his broken leg, will bolster the team's RB depth, joining rookie Josh Robinson and Zurlon Tipton behind starter Frank Gore. Gore, though, is locked in as the Indy starter, and even Bradshaw will see targets out of the backfield, it seems doubtful approaches the role (12.8 per game) that he had last season.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/14/15 4:09pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14, but he's headed in the right direction, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Luck made full throws in practice for the first time in two weeks, according to The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.
Huddle Up: Luck hasn't missed a practice over the last two weeks but has been held out of both of the Colts' games during that span. Pagano and the team, meanwhile, have been way too optimistic around the media during that span, so look for reports that the QB is making tangible on-field strides instead of getting caught up in the spoken rhetoric.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/12/15 10:08pm ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is 'day-to-day,' and head coach Chuck Pagano will not say whether Luck will return in Week 6 to face the New England Patriots after practicing in full Monday, Oct. 12. Luck is 0-4 in his career against the Patriots and has lost by an average of 29 points. QB Matt Hasselbeck would start his third straight game if Luck can't go.
Huddle Up: The Colts have at least changed to a wait-and-see approach after expressing optimism the past two games that Luck wound up missing. Things are looking better, though, with the QB opening the week with a full practice, and that's going to have to continue throughout the week.
Andre Johnson - WRPosted 10/9/15 12:19am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson had six catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 5.
Huddle Up: After recording only seven receptions for 51 yards entering the contest, including reception-less outings the last two weeks, Johnson broke out in a big way Thursday night, sickening all the fantasy GMs who've recently dumped him. He's still going to be hard to trust, though, going forward with T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief remaining ahead of him in the Colts' WR hierarchy, but at the least, he demonstrated Thursday that he's far from done.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/9/15 9:39am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is close to returning, and head coach Chuck Pagano said he's supremely confident Luck will return for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Matt Hasselbeck has more than held down the fort, but it will be nice for Indy--and fantasy owners--to get Luck back in the mix.
Frank Gore - RBPosted 10/9/15 9:39am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore had a season high in carries and yards in a 27-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 5, finishing with 22 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: The Colts may be slightly less inclined to lean on Gore once Andrew Luck returns, but he demonstrated he's up to the task and should remain a vital cog in the Indy offense.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/8/15 11:18am ET
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't play Thursday, Oct. 8, with QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) drawing the start against the Houston Texans, according to a source. Luck plans to test out his shoulder Thursday, but the Colts are prepared if they must start Hasselbeck. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said his team will 'do the right thing,' and that could mean resting Luck. Hasselbeck, meanwhile, is still battling a virus that required intravenous fluids in the hospital after last week's game. The team re-signed Josh Johnson, who may actually see action tonight.
Huddle Up: It's an absolute mess. There's still the possibility Luck tests his shoulder pregame and opts to play, or that Hass shakes off the bug and is able to hang for all four quarters. There's a domino effect with Indy's players as well, as TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief remain viable fantasy plays with either Luck or Hasselbeck at the helm but might be better left alone if Indy needs to dip all the way down to Johnson. Bottom line, if you own Colts you'll need to tune in for the pregame reports tonight; best have your Plan Bs lined up.
Andrew Luck - QBPosted 10/8/15 7:52pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts have declared QB Andrew Luck, LB Bjoern Werner, OT Denzelle Good, LB Jerrell Freeman, OG Lance Louis, DL T.Y. McGill, RB Tyler Varga inactive for Week 5. QB Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is dealing with a bacterial infection and was still on an IV Thursday, Oct. 8. Hasselbeck is starting against the Houston Texans and said he hopes he can play all four quarters.
Huddle Up: Rough news for Luck owners and those planning to start an Indy pass-catcher. And now with Hasselbeck, the 40-year-old backup, ailing, proceed with utmost caution with your Colts.
Vontae Davis - CBPosted 10/7/15 2:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts CB Vontae Davis (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Houston Texans and didn't practice all week.
Huddle Up: If the Colts' top CB can't go Thursday, that's more good news for DeAndre Hopkins' fantasy owners as they've received a top-five fantasy-WR performance so far from the Texans' wideout, who's caught 31 passes for 409 yards and three scores.
Dwayne Allen - TEPosted 10/7/15 5:10pm ET
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 5 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: All signs point toward Allen returning after a two-game absence and that likely means a split of the tight-end targets between him and Coby Fleener.
