ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells said "it won't be surprising" if Donte Moncrief leads the team in receptions.

Wells said the same thing in July, and nothing he has seen in training camp has changed his mind. Wells expects Moncrief to occupy more of a possession role this season and be the player Andrew Luck looks to when the play breaks down. He should also be a factor in the red zone after catching five touchdowns in seven games with Luck last year. Moncrief is a solid pick in the fifth round.

Donte Moncrief says he is currently running a 4.35 forty-yard dash at 222 pounds.

'Crief blazed 4.40 flat at the 2014 Combine after weighing in at 6-foot-2, 221. While beat writer George Bremer says Moncrief is emerging as "something of a go-to guy in short-yardage situations," Moncrief assures he can beat defenses deep. "That's what they're sleeping on," Moncrief said. "But they'll learn soon." Bremer calls Moncrief the Colts' "likely breakout candidate" this season.

Donte Moncrief said his surgically-repaired toe is at 96-97 percent.

The Colts are easing Moncrief back into action after he missed all of OTAs and minicamp while recovering from toe surgery. So far he's seen about 15 reps per day in team drills. The Colts will continue to be cautious with Moncrief but he's in no danger of missing the season opener against Detroit on September 11.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells believes Donte Moncrief will lead the team in receptions this season.

Moncrief only saw 11 fewer targets than T.Y. Hilton in Andrew Luck's seven starts last year and led the Colts in touchdowns (5) in those games. This may seem like a beat writer "hot take" on the surface, but it's not crazy with Moncrief a prime candidate for a third-year leap. The Colts lost 222 targets from 2015.

Donte Moncrief (toe) tweeted Thursday he has resumed running routes.

Moncrief did not participate in the offseason program, but he shed his walking boot last week and has now progressed to running routes. He is fully expected to be ready for the start of training camp. With Andrew Luck back healthy, Moncrief is poised for a breakout.

Donte Moncrief has shed his walking boot following offseason toe surgery.

He's sitting out OTAs, but beat writer George Bremer confirmed Moncrief is expected to be ready for training camp. Moncrief was still donning the boot a week ago at OTAs. He has breakout potential with Andrew Luck back healthy.
Jun 7 - 5:40 PM

Donte Moncrief underwent turf toe surgery earlier this offseason, but it is not considered a long-term concern.

Moncrief dealt with the issue for much of December before apparently making it worse in Week 17. We already knew Moncrief was sidelined, but the operation had not been previously disclosed. It's unideal, but it appears the Colts are just being overly cautious with their third-year wideout. Moncrief is on the breakout radar after taking a big step forward last season. He should get back to 100 percent well before training camp.
May 17 - 6:00 PM

Donte Moncrief (foot) is still not 100 percent healthy.

Moncrief suffered a setback in the season finale. The Indy Star's Stephen Holder said Moncrief "may take a little time," but the injury is not a "long-term concern." With Andrew Luck back healthy, Moncrief is primed for a breakout.

Donte Moncrief suffered a setback with his toe injury in Sunday's win.

Moncrief had only one catch before exiting. He played in all 16 games and posted a 62/733/6 line despite playing through multiple injuries, finishing behind only T.Y. Hilton in targets. Moncrief was arguably the Colts best receiver this year, but his stats dropped when Matt Hasselbeck took over. He'll be one of the bigger breakout candidates with the return of Andrew Luck in 2016. Moncrief should be healthy long before the start of OTAs.
Jan 3 - 5:39 PM

Donte Moncrief (toe) is probable for Week 17.

Moncrief didn’t practice all week for rest purposes. He’ll play Sunday, but is at risk of an in-game setback. Moncrief isn’t more than a WR4 with Ryan Lindley/Josh Freeman starting.
Jan 2 - 3:15 PM

Donte Moncrief (toe) didn’t practice Wednesday.

Moncrief played through his toe injury last week, but was limited. It's possible he suffered a setback. Moncrief will need to get in at least one practice to play.

Donte Moncrief caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards in the Colts' Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

Moncrief entered Week 16 as a game-time decision with a toe injury. He proceeded to play, but didn't appear to log a full complement of snaps. With Andrew Luck (kidney) penciled in for a Week 17 return, Moncrief's DFS prospects could be looking up if he gets his health right ahead of the regular season finale.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:17:00 PM

Donte Moncrief is active for Week 16 against the Dolphins.

It was expected after he returned to Friday's practice. The Colts' Week 16 inactives are QB Andrew Luck, S Winston Guy, S Colt Anderson, DB Devonta Glover-Wright, LB Josh McNary, OG Lance Louis, and DT Shelton Quarles.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 11:37:00 AM

Donte Moncrief (toe) is listed as questionable for Week 16 after turning in a limited practice on Friday.

Dealing with foot and toe injuries the past two weeks, Moncrief is expected to be a game-time decision against the Dolphins. First-round pick Phillip Dorsett could get more run if Moncrief can't give it a go this week.
