Doctors will determine whether Andrew Luck (I.R., shoulder) needs another surgery after he resumes throwing.

The surgery would occur in January, though Luck is optimistic it won't be necessary. Luck will return to the United States this week after spending the last month rehabbing in Europe. He experienced pain the last time he threw and if that pain returns, Luck would likely undergo a tenodesis procedure to relocate his biceps tendon. Luck was hoping to be ready for the start of next season but another surgery would obviously complicate things.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe said to expect a "housecleaning" in Indianapolis this offseason.

That includes both the coaching staff and 53-man roster. With Indianapolis set to miss the playoffs for a third consecutive year, Chuck Pagano is likely nearing the end of his Colts tenure. Per Volin, GM Chris Ballard wants to give Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub a head-coaching opportunity, though owner Jim Irsay may be looking for a "sexier" hire. Ballard has also been grilling Jacoby Brissett on Josh McDaniels, who served as Brissett's OC during his time in New England. Either way, it's a near certainty that Pagano will be handed his walking papers on Black Monday.

Jack Doyle caught 7-of-8 targets for 47 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

The Colts couldn't move the ball, but Doyle still registered his sixth seven-catch effort of the season. Even including T.Y. Hilton, Doyle is the only pass catcher Jacoby Brissett is finding with any regularity. He will remain a mid-range TE1 for fantasy championship week.
Dec 15 - 12:10 AM

Marlon Mack rushed six times for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

Mack failed to corral his lone target in the passing game. It was a disappointing night, as Frank Gore missed a big chunk of the first half with a knee injury. Aside from a few big plays early in the year, Mack hasn't really delivered on his theoretical upside. His 2018 role in the Colts' backfield is to be determined.

Colts TE Brandon Williams has been diagnosed with a concussion.

He's out of the hospital. It seems ridiculous to say, but it's actually good news after Williams, who has a spinal condition, had to be strapped to a backboard and stretchered off against the Broncos. We would expect that the reserve tight end and special teamer has played his final snap of 2017.
Dec 14 - 11:46 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

It looked like it might be an early night for Hilton after he was writhing around with a right hand injury early in the second quarter, but he ended up missing only a handful of plays. The yards were actually his third most across his past nine games. He will be a big-play reliant WR3 against the Ravens' Jimmy Smith-less secondary in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 11:43 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 31 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos, adding three receptions for 37 additional yards.

Gore missed most of the first half with a mysterious knee ailment, but was back after the break. He couldn't move the chains against the Broncos' stout run defense, and Jacoby Brissett couldn't soften them up with any big plays. Averaging 3.60 yards per carry behind an increasingly injured offensive line, Gore will be more of an RB3 than RB2 for Week 16 against the Ravens.
Dec 14 - 11:40 PM

Jacoby Brissett completed 17-of-30 passes for 158 yards in the Colts' 25-13, Week 15 loss to the Broncos, adding five carries for 18 yards and a touchdown.

Four days after a marathon loss in snowy Buffalo, the Colts, including Brissett, looked dismal and dull on offense. He has few weapons at his disposal, but Brissett couldn't make any big plays. As usual, he was holding onto the ball for too long, though he only took one sack. Brissett is averaging a putrid 4.55 yards per attempt over his past three starts. It's been a "learning experience" year of a few modest peaks and deep, deep valleys for the sophomore signal caller. He'll be off the streaming radar against the Ravens in Week 16.

Colts RT Denzelle Good was forced from Thursday's game against the Broncos with a knee injury, and will not return.

Good missed most of the first half of the season with a wrist injury. RG Joe Haeg has kicked over to tackle, with Le'Raven Clark checking into the game at guard.
Dec 14 - 10:42 PM

Colts TE Brandon Williams was forced from Thursday's game against the Broncos with a head injury.

Blocking on a punt, Williams knocked helmets with Deiontrez Mount and appeared to immediately go unconscious. Mount realized something was amiss, and eased off before finishing the hit. It's scary because Williams was already forced to give up football once because of a pre-existing spinal condition. He has been sent to the hospital.
Dec 14 - 9:13 PM

Colts declared WR Donte Moncrief, C Ryan Kelly, CB Rashaan Melvin, CB Nate Hairston, TE Darrell Daniels, OT Tyreek Burwell and RB Matt Jones inactive for Week 15 against the Broncos.

Moncrief also missed Week 14. He has just 26 catches in what's been a lost season. The 2014 third-rounder is headed to free agency in the offseason.
Dec 14 - 7:07 PM

Colts C Ryan Kelly (concussion) is out for Week 15 against the Broncos.

It will be his third straight absence. Donte Moncrief (ankle) and Rashaan Melvin (hand) were also ruled out for Thursday night.
Dec 13 - 5:22 PM

Donte Moncrief (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Broncos.

Coach Chuck Pagano did say the receiver should return next week. Ultimately, it does not matter much from a fantasy perspective. Chester Rogers will continue to work as the No. 2 receiver.
Dec 12 - 12:16 PM

Donte Moncrief (ankle) remained sidelined at Monday's practice.

Moncrief missed all of last week's practices and sat out the blizzard game in Buffalo on Sunday. The Colts play Thursday night. Moncrief looks doubtful.
Dec 11 - 6:31 PM

Jack Doyle caught a three-yard touchdown in Week 14 against Buffalo.

Doyle scored the Colts' only touchdown on a three-yard pass from Jacoby Brissett. He had a two-point conversion called back, but was otherwise quiet. Doyle will remain a low-end TE1 for a Week 15 matchup with Denver.
