Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Allen's odds of returning for Week 13 are appearing lower by the day. A Friday return would change that, but even then, Allen would be no better than 50-50. Owners need to be making other plans.

Colts signed CB Jalil Brown and waived CB Loucheiz Purifoy.

Brown has bounced around the bottom of rosters ever since the Chiefs took him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. He'll be asked to fill Purifoy's special teams role and provide depth at corner with Greg Toler and Vontae Davis both banged up.

Colts claimed OLB Shaun Phillips off waivers from the Titans.

The Colts cut OLB Victor Butler to make room. Phillips, 33, has been one of the least-effective pass rushers in the league this season, amassing just two sacks, three QB hits, and 10 hurries across 363 snaps. Indianapolis is tied for ninth in the league with 28 sacks, but the Colts aren't getting consistent pressure. Phillips will team with Bjoern Werner and Erik Walden at 3-4 outside 'backer.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells reports Boom Herron will continue to start over Trent Richardson.

Coach Chuck Pagano would only say that Herron "may" start again this week against the Redskins because he practiced so well leading up to Week 12, but most Colts beat writers get the impression it'll be Herron getting the nod over Richardson again. This comes two days after Richardson said he didn't start last week because he was recovering from the flu. We didn't buy it. It really doesn't matter, as the two will split reps, but it shows the Colts are higher on Herron than sloth-like T-Rich in the backfield.

Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Allen remains day to day. Not being able to practice Wednesday isn't a good sign for his Week 13 status.

Dolphins waived CB Jalil Brown.

The Dolphins have decided to go with R.J. Stanford over Brown as they shuffle their banged up cornerback corps. Brown had yet to be active since signing earlier this month.
Nov 25 - 4:37 PM

Titans waived OLB Shaun Phillips.

Signed to a two-year deal that included $2.5M guaranteed in March, the 33-year-old Phillips busted badly. He has two sacks and three quarterback hits on 363 snaps, and the Titans are cutting their losses even though fellow OLB Kamerion Wimbley is fighting a hamstring issue. There could be more to this story.

Colts re-signed WR/KR Griff Whalen to their practice squad.

Whalen was released after the Colts added return specialist Josh Cribbs. He found no interest on the open market and settled for a taxi squad spot back in Indy.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano stated Monday that Dwayne Allen (ankle) remains "day to day" ahead of a Week 13 game with the Redskins.

Pagano "doesn't know" whether Allen will practice this week. "He’s trending in the right direction but he’s going to be day-to-day," were Pagano's words. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on having Allen available against the Skins.

Colts RT Gosder Cherilus (shoulder) is expected back this week.

The Colts lost RG Hugh Thornton (knee), but at least they're getting back their right tackle. They couldn't block the Jaguars in the first half Sunday.
Nov 24 - 4:08 PM

Colts RG Hugh Thornton is "week to week" with a sprained MCL.

Thornton excels as a run blocker, an area in which Indianapolis' offense was already struggling. The Colts will turn to Lance Louis at right guard.

The Indianapolis Star says "it's becoming more and more apparent that (Reggie Wayne) has lost a step."

Wayne was not good against the Jags on Sunday, catching 3-of-9 targets for 10 yards and failing to separate. It's what we'd expect out of a 36-year-old wideout one year removed from blowing out his knee. Wayne isn't going anywhere as a solid possession receiver and security blanket for Andrew Luck, but he's capped at the WR3 level. He's averaging just 4.0 catches for 44.2 yards with one touchdown over the last five weeks.
Nov 24 - 10:52 AM

Donte Moncrief played on 30 snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, two more than Hakeem Nicks.

Reggie Wayne led the way by playing on 71-of-76 snaps, followed by T.Y. Hilton's 59. So Moncrief's count was skewed a bit by Hilton taking it easy (presumably because he was operating on no sleep after the birth of his daughter), but it's still notable that the rookie is eating into the washed-up Nicks' time. If we can ever get into a spot where we know Moncrief is going to get 60-70 percent of the snaps, he'll be a strong WR2/3 play.
Nov 24 - 9:25 AM

Trent Richardson said he didn't start Sunday's game against the Jags because he was still under the weather.

The Indy Star is buying this, suggesting that Richardson will start against the Redskins in Week 13. We're skeptical at best. T-Rich was clearly healthy enough to play as evidenced by his 13 touches on 42 snaps, but starter Boom Herron was predictably the more effective option -- turning his 17 touches and 33 snaps into 96 total yards. No matter who starts going forward, this backfield remains an even timeshare. We'd rather own Herron as simply the better player.
Nov 24 - 8:54 AM

Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 10 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Wayne drew a team-high nine targets, but didn't look like himself. The 36-year-old needs a day off, as he can't separate. Wayne could have easily had two touchdowns, but had a short, high pass go through his fingertips in the end zone. Andrew Luck later over-threw Wayne down the left sideline on a would-be 77-yard score. There were no Jaguars within five yards of Wayne. Wayne has a plus matchup at home against the Redskins in Week 13.
