A source tells ABC6 in Indy that Reggie Wayne (elbow) could miss 1-2 games.

Wayne landed awkwardly on his left arm early in Sunday's win over the Bengals. He hardly missed any snaps, but did have two uncharacteristic drops later on. The injury sounds like some kind of minor sprain that the Colts might exercise caution with. Hakeem Nicks projects to slide into an every-down role opposite T.Y. Hilton, but Donte Moncrief has been closing the gap there lately. Nicks would be a desperation fantasy WR4 despite the opportunity.

Trent Richardson is undergoing an MRI on his hamstring ailment.

T-Rich has been openly optimistic regarding his injury, but the Colts won't know his status for sure until the MRI comes back. Indy plays the Steelers next.

Reggie Wayne is undergoing an MRI for an elbow injury.

The Colts don't seem to fear anything serious for Wayne, so it's possible this MRI is precautionary. We'll have an update on Wayne by Wednesday.
Oct 20 - 3:54 PM

Trent Richardson said the hamstring injury he sustained Sunday is a "little tweak, nothing big."

Richardson sustained the strain in the fourth quarter and didn't return as the Colts had the game in hand. "I was able to still run and move. Coach told me there's no reason to back out there," he said. Before leaving, Richardson looked as impressive as he has in two years, totaling 118 yards on 18 touches. But Ahmad Bradshaw continues to soak up the majority of red-zone reps, capping T-Rich's fantasy appeal.

Donte Moncrief out-snapped Hakeem Nicks 23-19 in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Much of this game was garbage time, but we saw Moncrief playing ahead of Nicks in some higher-leverage situations also. The freakishly talented rookie is the future while Nicks, on a one-year deal, appears on his last legs. Moncrief should be on re-draft watch lists and all Dynasty radars.

Hakeem Nicks had no catches on one target in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Nicks appears to be falling behind Donte Moncrief (one catch on two targets). If the Colts offense wasn't humming, you can be sure Nicks would be making waves with complaints.

Reggie Wayne caught four passes for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Frankly, Wayne is a 35-year-old guy coming off an ACL tear. He looked like he was running with a sack of potatoes on his back the one time he got in the open field and uncharacteristically dropped a couple balls. Wayne remains a WR3 because of volume (9.2 targets per day over the last four weeks), but there's not much upside in a player that can't run and runs only possession routes.
Oct 19 - 4:50 PM

Dwayne Allen caught three passes for 52 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Allen's touchdown came on an out route in which he made a spectacular fingertip catch on a fastball and then turned on the speed while tip-toeing up the sideline for 32 yards. It was an impressive display of his unique natural ability. Allen now has a touchdown in 5-of-7 games, but is averaging just 43.5 yards per day. He'll be a low-end TE1 against the Steelers in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 4:46 PM

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 64 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Fleener ran wide open all day, and could have had an even bigger box score if he had been looking for the ball instead of a running a clear-out route with his head down in the second half. Andrew Luck's BFF did have five targets in this one, his most since Week 3. But his week-to-week role is minor in this talented Colts offense that has so many mouths to feed. Fleener remains a weak TE2 heading into Week 8 against the Steelers.
Oct 19 - 4:38 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 10 times for 52 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 36 yards with another touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Bradshaw lost a red-zone fumble early on, but there was no punishment. He was right back in there as the primary red-zone back after that, punching a goal-line carry in and later using his violent YAC skills after a catch for his sixth receiving score of the year. Perhaps most importantly for Bradshaw's outlook, Trent Richardson went down with a hamstring injury in the second half. The Colts will want to be careful with their veteran back, but he's going to be extremely productive even at 15 touches per game.
Oct 19 - 4:33 PM

Andrew Luck completed 27-of-42 passes for 344 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Luck continues to pile up ridiculous numbers, and he does it with ease. With OC Pep Hamilton taking the chains off, Luck has gone over 300 passing yards in 6-of-7 games and has at least 40 attempts in five of them. Note that he had more than 40 attempts in a game just four times all of last season. Luck will be in the conversation for No. 1 fantasy quarterback weekly, especially in a luxurious Week 8 matchup against the Steelers.
Oct 19 - 4:24 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught seven passes for 107 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Hilton is a monster stud. He lined up all over the formation, beat Leon Hall at times, caught bubble screens, caught bombs and continues to pile up targets (nine today). A born playmaker operating with a generational quarterback, he's among the safest week-to-week fantasy options. Hilton has at least nine targets in 6-of-7 games, has gone over 100 yards in three of his last four and is on pace for 107 catches, 1625 yards and four touchdowns on 155 targets. Hilton is going to rip through the Steelers' terrible corners next week.
Oct 19 - 4:17 PM

Trent Richardson left Sunday's Week 7 game against the Bengals with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Richardson tweaked his hammy near the end of the third quarter and the Colts quickly went up 24-0 after that. It's unclear if he has a serious pull or the trainers are just playing it safe with the game in hand. Before the injury, Richardson actually looked really spry, repeatedly using the R1 button to juke away from defenders and showing good skills in the pass game. He finished with 14 carries for 77 yards and four catches for 41 yards. It's the first time T-Rich went over 100 total yards all season. Ahmad Bradshaw and Dan "Boom" Herron are finishing the game out.
Oct 19 - 3:51 PM

Colts ILB Jerrell Freeman left Sunday's Week 7 game against the Bengals with a hip injury, but later returned.

Freeman, who had been battling a hamstring injury over the last few weeks, only missed a series or two. He was part of a defense that held Cincy to 27 total yards in the first half before leaving.
Oct 19 - 3:10 PM

Colts DL Arthur Jones (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Bengals.

Jones suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 and isn't quite ready to return yet. No surprises on the Colts inactives: CB Darius Butler, G Lance Louis, C Khaled Holmes, LB Victor Butler, OG Lance Louis, OT Jarmon Meredith and DT Kelcy Quarles.
