Jack Doyle Doesn't Practice Thursday

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (hip) remained sidelined on Thursday due to a hip injury he suffered in Week 2.

T.Y. Hilton Absent From Practice on Thursday

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (quad) was absent from the team's Thursday practice while nursing a quad injury.

Marlon Mack Misses Consecutive Practices

Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (hamstring, foot) missed the team's Thursday practice while dealing with various injury issues. This was the news that fantasy owners dreaded to hear, as it likely means he will be missing the Colts' Week 3 tilt with the Philadelphia Eagles barring a miraculous full Friday practice. Fellow backfield-mate Jordan... Read More

Eric Ebron Will Be Touchdown-Dependent in Week 3

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron has clearly benefited from a change of scenery, catching a touchdown pass in each of his first two games as a Colt. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he isn't involved in the offense nearly as much as he would need to be a weekly start. At the moment, Ebron has... Read More

Jack Doyle Still a Solid Option Against Philadelphia

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle was largely an afterthought in the team's 21-9 victory over the Washington Redskins last week, but fantasy owners can expect more than two receptions from him in Week 3.

Jack Doyle Misses Practice With Hip Injury

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (hip) was absent from the team's practice on Wednesday with a hip injury.

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.

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...

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.

T.Y. Hilton Explodes Against Washington

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton hauled in seven passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in a 21-9 win 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.

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.

Thursday Night Football Matchups Analysis - Week 2

That was a disappointing opening Thursday game...
