Colts C Khaled Holmes (ankle) is a "long shot" to be ready for Sunday's opener against the Broncos.

Waivers acquisition (and former Colts starter) A.Q. Shipley ran with the first team in Monday's practice. Holmes will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, but Week 2 is looking more realistic. Holmes has been sidelined since August 7.

Colts placed FS Delano Howell (neck) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Howell has battled neck problems since last season. The Colts will turn to journeyman Mike Adams as their starter opposite SS LaRon Landry.
Aug 31 - 5:36 PM

Colts claimed G/C A.Q. Shipley off waivers from the Ravens.

It's notable because the Colts traded Shipley to Baltimore in May 2013. Shipley started nine games for the Ravens last season, and five for the Colts in 2012. He's an insurance policy on C Khaled Holmes (high-ankle sprain).
Aug 31 - 1:41 PM

Ravens released or waived C/G A.Q. Shipley, OG Ryan Jensen, RB Fitz Toussaint, DL A.J. Pataiali'i, TE Phillip Supernaw, CB Tramain Jacobs and QB Keith Wenning.

Shipley made nine starts, one at center and eight at left guard, last season. He was competing for a backup job. Jensen was given a shot to play right tackle in the spring, but it didn't pan out. Wenning is a practice squad candidate.

Colts owner Jim Irsay has reached a plea deal in his impaired-driving case.

Details of the plea are unavailable. Irsay had been set for an October 30 trial. Irsay will likely be slapped with a suspended sentence and probation. It's unclear how the league plans to respond.

Colts G/T Joe Reitz was forced from Thursday's preseason finale with a high-ankle sprain.

The injury is to his left ankle. Reitz is one of the top reserves along the Colts' entire line, so it's a big blow. He's unlikely to return before October.
Aug 28 - 8:05 PM

Colts WR Da'Rick Rogers remains behind Griff Whalen.

It's a bit disconcerting that Rogers' natural talent still hasn't been able to shine through. He's currently the sixth receiver on a team tentatively expected to keep six receivers on their 53. Donte Moncrief is a far better Dynasty stash with Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks on one-year contracts.

Colts placed FB Stanley Havili on the reserve/PUP list.

Havili will be sidelined for at least the first six games. Converted LB Mario Harvey will be the fullback. The Colts also placed RB Vick Ballard (Achilles'), RB Deji Karim, and OG Ulrick John (ankle) on I.R. to get to the 75-man roster limit.
Aug 26 - 3:15 PM

Falcons waived/released QB Jeff Mathews, S Tyrell Johnson, DL Theo Agnew, LB Darin Drakeford, S Devonta Glover-Wright, WR Julian Jones, RB Jerome Smith, LB Brendan Daley, WR Tramaine Thompson, TE Brian Wozniak, and LB Walker May.

Atlanta has trimmed its roster to the requisite 75 players.
Aug 24 - 5:02 PM

Colts RB Dan "Boom" Herron rushed eight times for 68 yards and caught a pass for a loss of four in Saturday night's third preseason game against the Saints.

Some Colts beat writers have lobbied for the team to install Herron as part of a three-man backfield committee along with Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. There are no signs of that happening yet, but Herron has made a case with 18 preseason carries for 104 yards (5.78 YPC) and ten receptions. The former Ohio State Buckeye is someone to begin monitoring in fantasy leagues.
Aug 23 - 11:56 PM

Colts WR Griff Whalen caught 2-of-3 targets for 40 yards in Saturday night's third preseason game.

He's up to eight catches for 77 yards and a touchdown on the preseason. Whalen offers little on-field upside, but has connections to Andrew Luck and OC Pep Hamilton from Stanford, increasing his chances of landing a roster spot.
Aug 23 - 11:06 PM

T.Y. Hilton secured just 1-of-5 targets for five yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night against the Saints.

It was a miserable performance by Hilton, who committed multiple drops. The game isn't a regular season concern, but Hilton's role is likely to diminish with Reggie Wayne healthy. Hilton is being overdrafted at his fifth-round ADP. He stands little or no chance of repeating last year's top-15 finish in targets.
Aug 23 - 11:01 PM

Dwayne Allen secured 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night versus New Orleans.

They were Allen's first receptions of August after he went catch-less in the Colts' second exhibition game, and didn't play in the first. Allen is a low-ceiling TE2 who could help Indianapolis' red-zone offense, but doesn't appear to be a consistently featured part of their passing game.
Aug 23 - 10:59 PM

Coby Fleener caught 2-of-4 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night.

This was Fleener's first production of August. Mixing in with the first-team offense behind Dwayne Allen, Fleener was left uncovered by New Orleans' defense on a first-quarter seam route. Andrew Luck hit him over the top for a 21-yard score. Another one of Luck's targets to Fleener was intercepted, although the pick was on Luck for an underthrow. Fleener's regular season stats are likely to dip off last year's production with Allen back healthy.
Aug 23 - 10:34 PM

Hakeem Nicks secured 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night versus New Orleans.

Andrew Luck hit Nicks for a gain of 11 on the Colts' offensive snap of the game. Through three exhibition games, Nicks has efficiently secured 8-of-9 targets for 86 yards. Although Nicks has lost much of his dynamic ability due to past lower-leg injuries, he can be a useful perimeter player in Indianapolis' offense. He's roughly a WR4/5 in fantasy football leagues.
