Date:

Kamar Aiken (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Aiken is in the early stages of the concussion protocol. The limited practice puts him on track to return this week.
Sep 27 - 4:18 PM

Colts WR Kamar Aiken exited Week 3 against the Browns with a concussion.

Aiken started the game over Donte Moncrief. He was hit helmet to helmet on a 9-yard reception on the Colts' second possession. He is week to week.
Sep 24 - 1:36 PM

Kamar Aiken snared his only target for three yards Sunday in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams.

Aiken operated as the No. 3 wideout with Chester Rogers sidelined but made little impact in his Colts’ debut. He’s well off the redraft radar.
Sep 10 - 8:19 PM

Kamar Aiken came up empty on Sunday, failing to reel in any of his three targets in the Colts’ preseason loss to the Lions.

Aiken logged 21 snaps in Sunday’s opener but was never on the same page with QB Phillip Walker. You may remember Aiken from 2015 when he led the injury-depleted Ravens in both catches (75) and receiving yards (944). No better than fourth on Indy’s receiving depth chart, Aiken won’t come close to matching those totals in 2017.
Aug 13 - 4:52 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder says he hasn't "seen much of anything" promising from Kamar Aiken early at Colts camp.

Aiken was promised by GM Chris Ballard a chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver job, but he apparently hasn't been earning it. Second-year UDFA Chester Rogers appears to be the favorite, though Aiken and former first-rounder Phillip Dorsett should also be in the mix once preseason games kick off. Aiken had a strong 2015 but wasn't utilized on offense with the Ravens last year.
Aug 1 - 9:30 PM

In a Wednesday conference call, newly signed WR Kamar Aiken said GM Chris Ballard told him he'll be given a fair shake to win the Colts' No. 3 receiver job.

Ballard has no ties to former first-round WR Phillip Dorsett and likely doesn't care whether he's the No. 3 or 4 wideout. Aiken was signed on Tuesday and "was told there was going to be open competition in the receiving room." Aiken also seemed legitimately salty about being phased out of the Ravens' offense in 2016 after leading the team in receiving the previous year. Dorsett has shown very little in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised at all if Aiken wins the job.
Mar 22 - 12:59 PM

Colts signed WR Kamar Aiken, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Aiken led the Ravens with 944 yards on 75 catches in 2015, but he took a step back last season as the receiver corps returned to full health. With Phillip Dorsett struggling to make an impact, Aiken should slide in as the No. 3 behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief in Indy. Aiken is unlikely to carry much fantasy value while everyone is healthy, but he will be a name to know on the waiver wire.
Mar 21 - 8:27 AM

Free agent Kamar Aiken will visit the Colts on Friday.

He'll meet with the Seahawks on Monday. Aiken got lost in the shuffle last year after leading the Ravens with 944 receiving yards in 2015. In Indy, he'd be a solid complementary option behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.
Mar 17 - 11:20 AM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent WR Kamar Aiken has "roughly six teams" showing interest, including the Browns, Bills, and Seahawks.

Aiken would be a solid, if unspectacular, signing for a team that already has a true No. 1 and needs a complementary second or third option who can also help out on special teams. Aiken is 6'2/215 and turns 28 in May. He led the injury-riddled Ravens with a 75-944-5 line in 2015 but had his offensive role scaled back immensely last season, catching just 29 balls for 328 yards and one score.
Mar 6 - 9:28 AM

Kamar Aiken caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

Aiken finishes with 328 yards on 29 catches, one year after leading Baltimore in receiving. The Ravens simply didn't view Aiken as a legitimate featured receiver despite his 2015 success. Aiken is an impending free agent. He should try to find a landing spot where he can play more receiver in 2017.
Jan 1 - 4:30 PM

Kamar Aiken caught 3-of-6 targets for 55 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.

He finished second on the team in receiving behind Mike Wallace (10-120). Aiken mans the slot in the absence of Steve Smith Sr., whose availability for Week 9 is uncertain. The Ravens will go on a bye in Week 8.

Kamar Aiken (thigh) is active for Week 7 against the Jets.

Aiken played nearly 80 percent of Baltimore's Week 6 snaps with Steve Smith Sr. inactive, but he finished fourth on the Ravens in targets. Aiken does have a good Week 7 matchup. He's worth a look if you're desperate at wideout.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 12:01:00 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Jets.

Aiken showed up on the injury report Thursday but has practiced on a limited basis the last two days. He'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Aiken's role takes on greater significance with Steve Smith Sr. still nursing an ankle sprain. Regardless, he isn't a recommended fantasy play.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 03:00:00 PM

Kamar Aiken (thigh) was limited at Thursday's practice.

It's not ideal, but Aiken should be fine for Sunday's game against the Jets. Aiken earned a season-high six targets with Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) sidelined in Week 6. We'd expect him to see a similar workload on Sunday.
