T.Y. Hilton Sits Out Practice With Quad Injury

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (quad) sat out the team's Wednesday practice with a quad injury. Hilton is coming off a huge performance where he led the Colts in receiving yards and played on 55 of 61 offensive snaps, so his health is something to monitor throughout the week. There is no indication so... Read More

Marlon Mack Dealing With Hamstring, Foot Issues

Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (hamstring, foot) missed practice Wednesday while dealing with two different injuries. Health continues to be a problem for Mack who in addition to re-aggravating a hamstring injury that forced him to miss much of training camp must have suffered a foot injury in last week's victory over the Washington...

Thursday Night Football Matchups Analysis - Week 3

I have already written A.J. Green an apology letter. After noting that I would "hesitantly" put the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver in the must-start category for last week's Thursday Night Football Matchups column due to the Baltimore Ravens' history of finding ways to keep him in check, he subtly responded by catching three touchdown passes...

Eric Ebron Continues Touchdown Streak Against Washington

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 21-9 win over the Washington Redskins.

Jack Doyle a Non-Factor in Week 2

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle caught two passes for 20 yards in a 21-9 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Ryan Grant Held To Two Catches in Revenge Game

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Ryan Grant caught two passes for 30 yards in the team's 21-9 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Lack of Routes a Concern for Eric Ebron Against Washington

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron is likely a popular waiver pickup after scoring a big-play touchdown in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jack Doyle Primed to Succeed in Week 2

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle hauled in seven receptions against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 and should be targeted heavily against the Washington Redskins.

T.Y. Hilton Draws Tough Matchup Against Washington

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will draw coverage from a top defensive back in the league when the team takes on the Washington Redskins in Week 2.

Volume Makes Andrew Luck a Solid Start in Week 2

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck made a glorious return to action against the Cincinnati Bengals, completing 39 passes for 319 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.

Ryan Grant Practices in Full, Offers PPR Value in Week 2

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Ryan Grant (chest) practiced in full on Wednesday.

Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) is reportedly a "full go" for practice on Wednesday and "absolutely" expects to suit up when the team takes on the Washington Redskins in Week 2.

Thursday Night Football Matchups Analysis - Week 2

That was a disappointing opening Thursday game...

Eric Ebron Shows Athleticism on Touchdown Catch

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the team's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

T.Y. Hilton Scores Touchdown Versus Cincinnati

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught five passes for 46 yards and a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The Andrew Luck-T.Y.

Bengals Should Keep T.Y. Hilton in Check

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2017 campaign, but the Cincinnati Bengals aren't likely to make his first game a productive one.

Andrew Luck Draws Unfavorable Week 1 Matchup
