Hakeem Nicks (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

Nicks will likely come down to a game-time decision after missing practice the last two days. Even if he plays, Nicks is no more than a WR4 for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 8:17 PM

A.Q. Shipley will start at center in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Shipley has graded out as a top-ten center by Pro Football Focus through two games. He'll remain the starter even with Khaled Holmes (probable, ankle) healthy enough to return.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells expects TE Dwayne Allen's targets and receptions will "increase as the season goes on."

Allen has only seen six passes thrown his way through the first two weeks of the season, while fellow tight end Coby Fleener has nine targets already. Allen has been more effective with his targets, though, and is simply a better player than Fleener. His role in the offense should grow, but Allen's upside is limited as long as Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton continue to soak up targets.

T.Y. Hilton (groin) is probable for Week 3.

Hilton was limited earlier in the week, but his status was never in doubt. He currently ranks sixth in the NFL with 22 targets. Hilton is a boom-or-bust WR3 against the Jaguars.
Sep 19 - 8:31 PM

Colts ILB Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) is out for Week 3.

Colts DT Arthur Jones has already been ruled out. The Colts will be without two of their most critical run defenders in Sunday's tilt with the Jaguars.
Sep 19 - 2:44 PM

Hakeem Nicks (illness) remained sidelined at Colts practice Friday.

Nicks has missed the past two practices, leaving his status for Week 3 against the Jaguars in question. He's no more than a WR4, even in the plus matchup.
Sep 19 - 11:22 AM

Hakeem Nicks missed Thursday's practice with illness.

Nicks will be fine for Week 3. Coming off a one-catch, -4 yard performance, Nicks is a middling WR4.
Sep 18 - 3:31 PM

T.Y. Hilton (groin) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

Hilton was limited Wednesday, but the Colts were just managing his reps on a short week. He's a boom-or-bust WR3 for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 3:27 PM

Colts C Khaled Holmes (ankle) has resumed practicing.

He's been out since early August with a high ankle sprain. Fill-in A.Q. Shipley has quietly graded out as a top-nine center at Pro Football Focus, but the Colts reportedly remain "committed" to Holmes as their long-term starter.
Sep 17 - 9:15 PM

T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hilton must have suffered the injury in Monday night's loss to the Eagles. He should be considered day to day.
Sep 17 - 3:11 PM

Colts DL Arthur Jones (high-ankle sprain) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

It's a big loss for the Colts' undermanned front seven. Ricky Jean-Francois and Zach Kerr will pick up the bulk of Jones' lost snaps.
Sep 16 - 6:16 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for minus-four yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

He was targeted three times on the night. Nicks' best opportunity came on an end-zone look, but it was a bit overthrown in good coverage. He's seen eight targets through two games with the Colts, and is no more than a WR4/5.
Sep 16 - 12:47 AM

Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Donte Moncrief caught his lone target for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

It was Moncrief's first NFL catch. He's the clear No. 4 receiver in Indy, but won't play a large role unless OC Pep Hamilton reluctantly opens up the offense or gets fired.
Sep 16 - 12:39 AM

Coby Fleener caught just one pass for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Fleener saw just the one target a week after dropping a pass and botching a red-zone target. He's not worth owning in any fantasy leagues.
