Colts coach Frank Reich insisted Monday that the team is not concerned with Andrew Luck's arm strength.

The Colts are almost never challenging defenses in the vertical passing game, and they pulled Luck for Jacoby Brissett to attempt Sunday's last-gasp Hail Mary pass against the Eagles. "What I've seen is he makes all the throws," Reich insisted. "There's been plenty of throws down the field, in my mind ... (What) I've seen is a guy who is extremely accurate. I have no concerns about velocity." The Colts return home to face J.J. Watt's Texans next.

Colts RT Joe Haeg is out for a "few weeks" with an ankle injury.

As J'Marcus Webb was already lost for the season, this puts the Colts down to their third-string right tackle. It sounds like Haeg is dealing with a high ankle sprain. J.J. Watt should be licking his chops for Sunday's game.
Sep 24 - 4:17 PM

Ryan Grant caught 3-of-4 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Grant scored the lone touchdown for the Colts and 5-yard fade route which he won a contested catch. After receiving nine targets in the season opener, Grant has totaled just six targets over the past two weeks despite finding the end zone Sunday. Grant now has 13 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown through three games.
Sep 23 - 5:35 PM

Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 18 yards while catching 5-of-5 targets for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Hines "led" the Colts backfield in Week 3, but hardly was noteworthy. Through three games, Hines has carried 14 times for 44 yards while catching 13 passes for 56 yards. He is not a fantasy option Week 4 against the Texans.
Sep 23 - 5:30 PM

Jordan Wilkins rushed six times for 19 yards while catching two passes for one yard in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Wilkins started in place of Marlon Mack, but found little room to run as the Eagles dominated on the defensive front. Wilkins now has rushed 30 times for 120 yards with seven catches for 25 yards through three games. He is not a starting-caliber option heading into Week 4 versus the Texans.
Sep 23 - 5:23 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-10 targets for 50 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Eagles.

Hilton posted lackluster yardage, but he drew two long pass interference penalties. Hilton now has double-digit targets in each of the opening three games, notching 17 catches, but has been more of a high-volume possession receiver with Luck struggled to regain his arm strength. Hilton is averaging 10.6 yards per reception after averaging 15.7 yards per catch for his career. He will remain a volume-based WR2 Week 4 against the Texans.
Sep 23 - 5:19 PM

Eric Ebron caught 5-of-11 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

With Jack Doyle out of the lineup, Ebron led the Colts in targets, but was able to turn them into just pedestrian yardage. His afternoon was filled near misses, failing to reel in any of his three end zone targets. Ebron will be the lower-TE1 mix if Doyle remains sidelined next week against the Texans.
Sep 23 - 5:12 PM

Andrew Luck completed 25-of-40 passes for 164 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Luck struggled through the rain and continued to fail to push the ball downfield on his throwing attempts. He had just 80 yards passing before the final two possessions, the latter closed with him being pulled for Jacoby Brissett on the Hail Mary attempt to win the game. Luck's yards per pass attempt have progressively dropped each week, going from 6.0 to 5.8 to 4.1 this week. Luck's athleticism is still prevalent and he added a 33-yard run down the sideline, but his limitations driving the ball through the air have turned him into a dink-and-dunk passer. Luck will enter Week 4 as QB2 against the Texans.
Sep 23 - 5:08 PM

Colts RT Joe Haeg is out for the remainder of Sunday's Week 3 game versus the Eagles with an ankle injury.

Haeg had his ankle rolled on from behind early in the 2nd quarter. He tried to play through the injury, but was forced to leave during the second half. Denzelle Good has replaced Haeg at right tackle.
Sep 23 - 3:08 PM

Colts declared TE Jack Doyle, RB Marlon Mack, OT Anthony Castonzo, OG Mark Glowinski, DT Hassan Ridgeway, CB Quincy Wilson and DT Enico Autry inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game versus the Eagles.

Doyle’s absence is a big loss for the Colts as no tight end played more snaps (136-of-143) over the first two weeks of the season. His loss will be felt in the running game the most against an Eagles defense that has allowed just 2.7 yards per carry to opposing running backs through two weeks, the lowest rate in the league. Ryan Hewitt will fill the blocking void vacated by Doyle while Eric Ebron and Erik Swoope handle pass-catching duties.
Sep 23 - 11:41 AM

Colts coach Frank Reich confirmed LT Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) isn't a candidate for injured reserve.

Castonzo will miss his second straight game after re-injuring his hamstring. He's week to week, but the Colts are hoping he'll return sooner than later. Indy will go with Joe Haeg and Denzelle Good as their starting tackles against the Eagles.
Sep 22 - 9:30 PM

Colts added TE Erik Swoope from their practice squad.

The Colts will have Eric Ebron, Swoope, and Ryan Hewitt (primarily a blocking tight end) available Sunday with Jack Doyle (hip) out. Swoope’s 2017 campaign was derailed due to a nagging knee injury, but he finished top-five among all tight ends in yards per catch (19.8) when healthy the year prior. Sunday still sets up terrifically for Ebron, who should seamlessly replace Doyle in a full-time role. Doyle has quietly run the most routes (81) among all tight ends so far this year, giving Ebron a high floor (if only for his inevitable usage), as well.
Sep 22 - 9:49 AM

Colts SS Clayton Geathers (knee, elbow) is questionable for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Geathers played despite his questionable tag in Week 2. He only got in one practice this week, but that may have been for rest purposes. Geathers has played every snap through the first two games.
Sep 21 - 8:39 PM

Colts RT Denzelle Good (knee, wrist) is not on the Week 3 injury report.

Good missed the first two games of the season, but he is ready to go this week. Sidelined almost a month, it is not clear if Good will step right back into the starting lineup. Joe Haeg started at right tackle last week.
Sep 21 - 8:24 PM

T.Y. Hilton (quad) will play in Week 3 against the Eagles.

Hilton was removed from Indy's injury report and was a full participant in practice Friday. The Colts will still be without Marlon Mack (hamstring, foot), Jack Doyle (hip), and Anthony Castonzo (hamstring). Andrew Luck will be forced to lean on both Hilton and Eric Ebron against the Eagles' daunting secondary on Sunday.
