Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/29/14 10:17am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) tweaked his ankle in the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans, and was forced to leave the game briefly. He was able to return, but was spotted after the game with a walking boot on his left foot as a precaution.
Huddle Up: You have to think at this stage of his career Bradshaw has multiple styles of walking boots: Air Jordan walking boots, Crocs walking boots for the summer months, probably a dress walking boot for more formal occasions... what we're saying is, injury is nothing new for Bradshaw. That said, he's stepped out of the walking boot and played well on more than one occasion so this doesn't necessarily rule him out for Week 5. You'll have to monitor his practice week and availability leading up to game time, but that's part of the deal when drafting/owning Bradshaw.
Da'Rick Rogers - WRPosted 9/29/14 7:06pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts have released WR Da'Rick Rogers and promoted FS Dewey McDonald to their 53-man roster Monday, Sept. 29, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Rogers was arrested early Monday morning on DUI charges
Huddle Up: Rogers had 14 catches for 192 yards and a pair of scores last season but had not played an offensive snap this season at the bottom of a deep Indy WR depth chart.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 9/25/14 3:34pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Hilton left the Colts' Week 2 win in the first half and didn't return, but he looks be fully on track to play Sunday.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/24/14 6:05pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (rest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Just a maintenance day for the veteran who, believe it or not, ranks sixth among all fantasy backs with 44 points heading into Week 4.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 9/24/14 6:08pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Good sign that the wideout was at least able to get in some work after leaving the Week 3 game before halftime. See, though, if he can increase his practice load in the next few days.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/18/14 7:07pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne and RB Ahmad Bradshaw were full participants in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. Both players received rest days Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Just a little early-season break for the two veterans, who have strong matchups Sunday going against a Jaguars' D which has been torched for 75 points and 869 yards in 2 games.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/16/14 12:23am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 13 times for 70 yards and caught 5 passes for 26 yards and 2 TDs Monday, Sept. 15 in a 30-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Starter Trent Richardson had more touches (22-18) than Bradshaw but the latter continues to get more done with less, averaging 5.4 yards per rush (13-70) to Richardson's 3.8 (21-79) and had 4 more catches and 10 more receiving yards. He also scored the pair of TDs while Richardson fumbled twice, losing one. The bottom line is that Bradshaw is the Indy back you want, even if he continues getting slightly less work.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 9/12/14 10:22am ET
Indianapolis Colts RBs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw are expected to split carries in Week 2. Richardson rushed only six times for 20 yards in Week 1 because the team fell behind early. However, in his limited work, he showed improved vision and decisiveness.
Huddle Up: Hard to emphatically state that 3.3 yards per carry indicates "improved vision and decisiveness", but we'll go with it. Bradshaw is a better fit when the team needs to throw, as they did playing catch-up in Denver, so it boils down to what direction Pep Hamilton and the offense want (or need) to go based on the game situation. Hope you weren't banking on Richardson being your (and Indy's) go-to feature back.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/11/14 2:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Likely just a maintenance day for the 35-year-old WR, but check in on him Friday just to make sure.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 9/4/14 7:14pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne was back to a full practice Thursday, Sept. 4, after resting Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: At 35 and coming off the knee injury, the veteran wideout is going to need some rest days. For this week, count on him as an WR3 option if you need him.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 8/21/14 12:07am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson is off to a slow start in training camp and the preseason, posting just 34 yards in 14 attempts. At 2.4 yards per carry, that's even less than the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged in his disappointing 2014. 'Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability,' general manager Ryan Grigson said Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Some are saying Richardson looks good this preseason but they must be watching games from his time at Alabama by mistake. Richardson is still dancing behind the line and looks like the same back he has for the last year and a half. He plays in an explosive offense but right now Richardson's big rookie year looks like a lifetime ago
Robert Mathis - LBPosted 8/21/14 6:42pm ET
Indianapolis Colts LB Robert Mathis (undisclosed) will not play in the team's third preseason game, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: It's not like the veteran Mathis needs the work, and the next time you'll likely see him in an Indy uniform is Week 5 as he will serve a 4-game drug-policy suspension to open the regular season.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 8/21/14 6:52pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is a game-time decision against the New Orleans Saints Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Indy would like to get the veteran wideout a few preseason snaps after he missed the final 9 games last season and the first two exhibitions this year. If he's doing as well as been billed in practices, count on seeing him Saturday.
Phillip Tanner - RBPosted 8/20/14 5:26pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts waived RB Phillip Tanner Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Tanner was fighting for a spot on the bottom of Indy's RB depth chart, but the Colts' signing of Deji Karim last week made him expendable.
Ahmad Bradshaw - RBPosted 8/13/14 10:30am ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) said Tuesday, Aug. 12, that he expects to play in the team's regular season opener against the Denver Broncos. He isn't sure if he will get the green light to make his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 16, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Bradshaw is the expected backup plan to Trent Richardson in Indy. That he hasn't played in the preseason is keeping his fantasy value down, to the point that if you're not a believer in a T-Rich bounceback season Bradshaw is a great late-round flier... assuming, of course, he's healthy enough to actually play.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 8/12/14 10:22pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton not only believes he's a No. 1 wide receiver, but adds teammates Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks into that category as well.
Huddle Up: Hilton is right on in that Indy has had a sizable WR facelift over last season when Darrius Heyward-Bey, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen were all forced into more action than necessary. Hilton, Wayne and Nicks will vulture each other's fantasy value, but as a whole, it bodes very well for Andrew Luck's aerial outlook, and he should easily eclipse last season's totals of 3,822 passing yards and 23 TDs.
Hakeem Nicks - WRPosted 8/7/14 4:26pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks said he is in the best shape of his life. "I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...I came in weighing 209 when I was supposed to come in weighing 212," Nicks said. "After Pep came to me to clarify, he said that he (meant) everybody's getting into game shape right now--it's the beginning of camp. He came apologizing to let me know he wasn't just singling me out."
Huddle Up: All interpretations aside, we can start judging Nicks for ourselves Thursday night as Indy opens the preseason against the Jets.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 8/5/14 1:01am ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) has been off limits to defenders during training camp.
Huddle Up: After 13 seasons, 1,006 career catches and last season's knee injury, the soon-to-be 36-year-old wideout is definitely due some special camp considerations.
Hakeem Nicks - WRPosted 8/3/14 3:50pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks isn't where he needs to be, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. 'Yeah, I don't know if I can say that I've seen enough,' Hamilton said. 'I think he is still working to get himself in game shape.'
Huddle Up: Hardly surprising given that Nicks has yet to play a full season in 5 NFL campaigns. At the same time, definitely don't be quick to write off the WR without factoring in his talent and extremely favorable new situation playing with the top young QB in the league.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 8/1/14 6:03pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton returned to practice Friday, Aug. 1. Hilton is dealing with a jammed right index finger, which was wrapped.
Huddle Up: As expected, it looks to be non-issue for the big-play wideout.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 7/31/14 11:47pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne said he hasn't had any problems so far with his surgically repaired right knee.
Huddle Up: So far so good this summer for the soon-to-be 36-year-old Wayne. Nonetheless, there will be much more competition for targets with the emergence of T.Y. Hilton, the free-agent signing of Hakeem Nicks, the selection of Donte Moncrief in the third round and the return of TE Dwayne Allen, who missed all but 1 game last season with a hip injury.
T.Y. Hilton - WRPosted 7/30/14 5:10pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton suffered a jammed finger during practice Wednesday, July 30.
Huddle Up: Hey, between the JUGS machine and taking throws from all the QBs, jammed fingers happen in camp. No report of any fractures, so Hilton should be fine.
Phillip Tanner - RBPosted 7/29/14 3:52pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts signed RB Phillip Tanner (Cowboys) Tuesday, July 29. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Indy continues to bolster its backfield depth in back of Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw following Vick Ballard's season-ending Achilles' tear last week. There's no real fantasy implications here unless the backfield injuries continue.
Chris Rainey - RBPosted 7/28/14 10:50am ET
Updating an earlier report, the Indianapolis Colts released RB Chris Rainey for a violation of team rules.
Huddle Up: With Vick Ballard out there was an opportunity for Rainey to carve out a roster spot behind (or alongside) Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Instead, he's looking for work.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 7/27/14 2:28pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has not been participating in training-camp practices because of a soft-tissue issue, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said the team is being careful with Richardson and want him to be 100 percent before he returns to the field.
Huddle Up: With fellow RB Vick Ballard's season already over before it got started, the Colts are counting on a bounce-back season from Richardson more than ever and certainly aren't going to take the chance of aggravating a minor issue in the opening week of camp.
Vick Ballard - RBPosted 7/26/14 1:00pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.
Huddle Up: Ballard can't seem to catch a break. He tore his ACL in the first game last season and now will likely miss all of 2014 with the Achilles' tendon injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw remain in the Colts' backfield committee.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 7/23/14 2:25pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) said he has been medically cleared to practice. He's expected to be limited, though, especially in the near future.
Huddle Up: No reason to rush Reggie, as he's well versed in the Indy offense. But the good news is that he appears to be all the way back from last season's injury so fantasy owners can feel comfortable drafting him.
Vick Ballard - RBPosted 7/23/14 2:25pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) reported to camp and has passed his physical.
Huddle Up: Ballard was a solid option for the Colts prior to his knee injury; now he'll have to battle Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw for looks in Indy's suddenly crowded backfield.
Reggie Wayne - WRPosted 7/18/14 5:16pm ET
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) can still play, get open and make a catch, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said it will be great to have Wayne back (from injury) not only because of his on-field ability but because of the leadership he brings to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Wayne may not be done yet, but at this point in his career he's WR2 to TY Hilton and will be competing with Hakeem Nicks for looks. There's still some fantasy value here, just not the top-10 WR value Wayne has had in the past.
Trent Richardson - RBPosted 7/13/14 10:39pm ET
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will need to produce right away in the running game if he wants to keep the starting job, because the team will not wait for him to turn things around if RB Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard are playing well.
Huddle Up: Uh, yeah, there's zero chance a contender such as the Colts will keep giving Richardson start after start if he's averaging anywhere close to the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged a season ago.
