The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer conceded Wednesday he "wouldn't be surprised" if Andrew Luck (shoulder) missed the entire season.

Keefer's Indy Star colleague, Stephen Holder, also suggested Luck is no lock to play again this year following the setback in his surgically repaired shoulder. To put it frankly, the Colts lied to their fanbase. Owner Jim Irsay stated as late as the final week of preseason that Luck had a chance to play in Week 1, and the Colts activated Luck from the PUP list in what was perceived as a sign he would play inside the first seven weeks. None of those things happened, and the team is now claiming a setback. Luck should have been dropped in re-draft leagues long ago. At this point, we expect Jacoby Brissett to be the Colts' rest-of-season starter.

According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Colts RT Denzelle Good (wrist) is "definitely" a candidate to return from injured reserve.

Holder admitted he's not sure of Good's timeline, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll return before the year is out. Good landed on I.R. after suffering a torn wrist ligament in Week 1. Joe Haeg has been filling in at right tackle since then.
Oct 18 - 7:06 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard said Andrew Luck has experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired right (throwing) shoulder and will not practice this week.

This qualifies as a significant setback, no matter how the Colts try and spin it. Luck practiced the past two weeks and appeared to be knocking on the door of playing sometime soon. He's now again out indefinitely, leaving Jacoby Brissett the starter for the next few weeks and further dropping the floors of T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. The Colts' bye week comes Week 11.

Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) will miss the remainder of the season.

Turbin's left arm got bent in sickening fashion against the Titans on Monday. He had handled a season-high seven touches before going down. Turbin was struggling behind Frank Gore, averaging 2.30 yards on his 23 carries. Two months shy of his 28th birthday, Turbin is signed for $1 million next season. His loss will create more opportunities for promising rookie Marlon Mack.
Oct 17 - 6:14 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 49 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the pass game. The Colts said they wanted to get rookie Marlon Mack more involved on offense after his big Week 5, but it was Gore and fellow vet Robert Turbin getting all the work. Mack carried the ball just two times. Gore has now rushed between 46 and 57 yards in each of the past five games. He's been consistently average.
Oct 17 - 12:28 AM

Jack Doyle caught 7-of-11 targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

After missing Week 5 with a concussion, Doyle came back and led the Colts in targets. He caught a short eight-yard touchdown in the second quarter to get the touchdown-scoring started in this one, but otherwise struggled much of the night. He simply had trouble hanging onto the ball, dropping a couple passes and losing one fumble. Doyle will be a low-end TE1 Week 7 at Jacksonville.
Oct 17 - 12:18 AM

Donte Moncrief caught 5-of-7 targets for 67 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

Moncrief's night started horrendously with him dropping an 18-yard touchdown strike from Jacoby Brissett in the end zone. But Moncrief turned it around a bit, as the yards and catches were both season-bests to this point. The contract-year wideout has been a huge disappointment without Andrew Luck through six weeks and won't be fantasy usable Week 7 at the Jaguars.
Oct 17 - 12:12 AM

Marlon Mack rushed two times for 18 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He failed to catch either of his two targets. Mack exploded for a 22-yard run on his first attempt, but lost four on the next carry in the first quarter and never touched the ball again. He's now had 12 carries go for zero or negative yards. Mack is the definition of boom or bust. The Colts said they wanted to get Mack more involved after his strong Week 5, but it didn't happen at all. Frank Gore was running well and turned 12 touches into 67 yards, while Robert Turbin chipped in 40 yards on seven touches before leaving with an elbow injury in the final quarter. Mack is worth a bench stash, but the Colts love their old guys like Gore, who never gets hurt.
Oct 17 - 12:03 AM

Jacoby Brissett completed 21-of-37 passes for 212 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans on Monday night.

He added 15 yards on five rushes. Brissett came out guns blazing in the first half, going into halftime completing 12-of-19 balls for 119 yards and the score to Jack Doyle. He should have had a second touchdown to Donte Moncrief from 18 yards away, but Moncrief committed a horrid drop in the end zone on a perfect pass. After the half, Brissett was downright dreadful, going 9-of-18 for 93 yards, and the Colts again blew a second-half lead. Andrew Luck (shoulder) is nearing a return, but is likely at least another week away. Brissett won't be a fantasy option next week on the road in Jacksonville.
Oct 17 - 12:00 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught just 1-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

The Titans came into this one bleeding fantasy points and production to opposing receivers, but Hilton was unable to get much going at all. He's had two massive games at home this season -- 7-153-1 vs. CLE and 7-177 vs. SF -- but has been real quiet on the road with 3-57-0, 3-30-0, and now 1-19-0 lines. His home-road splits have been a story his entire career, and things only get worse without Andrew Luck in the lineup. The Colts head back out on the road in Week 7 against Jacksonville's No. 1 pass defense. Hilton will be a borderline WR3/4 for that matchup.
Oct 16 - 11:53 PM

Robert Turbin exited Week 6 against the Titans with a left elbow injury.

He took a 3rd-and-10 dumpoff 9.5 yards to the sticks and planted his left arm in the ground only to apparently dislocate his elbow. It looked gruesome, and Turbin was quickly ushered to the locker room. Before leaving, Turbin managed 40 total yards on seven touches. He's likely to miss extended time.
Oct 16 - 11:39 PM

Colts declared RB Matt Jones, QB Andrew Luck, DB Quincy Wilson, LB Anthony Walker, LB Tarell Basham, OG Isaiah Williams, and TE Henry Krieger-Coble inactive for Week 6 against the Titans.

Wilson and Basham are both healthy scratches as rookie draft picks.
Oct 16 - 7:10 PM

The Indianapolis Star expects contract-year WR Donte Moncrief to reach free agency.

Moncrief has been down this year, catching 11 passes through the first five weeks. He’s open to re-signing with the Colts, but has no ties to GM Chris Ballard. Moncrief won’t struggle for interest if the Colts let him walk.
Oct 14 - 7:15 PM

ESPN’s Mike Wells expects Marlon Mack to have an "increased workload" on Monday night against the Titans.

This falls with Chuck Pagano’s plan to get Mack more carries. Mack led Indy to an overtime win last week, adding a big-play threat to an offense that’s lacked splash plays without Andrew Luck. The Colts have misplaced loyalty to Frank Gore, a 34-year-old on an expired deal with three straight sub-4.0 YPC seasons. Mack was a workhorse for star HC Willie Taggart at USF — starting 36-of-36 games — and is miscast in a change-up role. The Colts need to make the move to Mack if they want to get him double-digit starts — a streak he’s had since college. Mack is the future in Indy and deserves to start.

Jack Doyle has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to play Monday night against the Titans.

This was fully expected considering he practiced in full all week. Doyle has been mostly down this season, but Jacoby Brissett is coming off his best passing day of the year. Doyle is an option for desperate streamers.
