|DHB out, Da'Rick Rogers in? -- Thu Dec 5 2:20 pm --|
Rookie saw 13 snaps in Week 13
|At wide receiver, signs point toward more of rookie Da'Rick Rogers and less of veteran Darrius Heyward-Bey. Rogers made his NFL debut last Sunday against Tennessee when he was on the field for 13 offensive plays. He failed to catch a pass, but drew a 26-yard interference penalty against Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner in the second quarter that led to one of Adam Vinatieri's five field goals. (Indianapolis Star)|
FF Today's Take: DHB has been given more than enough opportunity to emerge. At each turn, he has literally and figuratively dropped the ball. Despite being an undrafted rookie free agent, Rogers is a NFL-level talent and the Colts are desperate for someone to step up opposite T.Y. Hilton. It is possible Rogers could be worth an add in redraft leagues before the end of the season, but this news does more to help his dynasty-league stock.
| Reggie Wayne out for season -- Mon Oct 21 2:45 pm --|
Torn right ACL

FF Today's Take: Updating an earlier report, an MRI confirmed what the Colts feared. T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey will be the regular starters for now, but aggressive GM Ryan Grigson could easily swing a trade to land a veteran receiver that is reportedly on the block, such as the New York Giants' Hakeem Nicks or Cleveland Browns' Josh Gordon. TE Coby Fleener will also likely be asked to take on a more important role as well.
| Wayne to have MRI, ACL injury likely -- Mon Oct 21 8:30 am --|
Colts lose top receiving option
|The Indianapolis Colts were bracing for the worst after initial tests by doctors showed that receiver Reggie Wayne suffered a season-ending ACL injury in Sunday night's victory over the Denver Broncos, according to league sources. One source said it "looks like he's out for the year" while another said the team was hoping the MRI "proves the doctors wrong on the ACL." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: This is a devastating blow for Wayne and the Colts offense. If Wayne is out for the year, T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey would move into starting roles. The Colts have a bye next weekend before playing Houston in Week 9.
| T.Y. Hilton held out of team drills -- Fri Sep 20 1:25 pm --|

FF Today's Take: It's likely this a precautionary move and Hilton will play on Sunday but we will know more on Sunday. The Colts play in a late afternoon game on Sunday.
| Dwayne Allen misses practice Fri. -- Fri Sep 13 8:00 pm --|
Hip injury may shelve Colts TE for Week 2
|After the shock of Vick Ballardís season-ending knee injury eased, attention turned to the status of tight end Dwayne Allen. He again was held out of practice after suffering a hip injury in the opener against Oakland. Allen is questionable for Miami, which by NFL standards gives him a 50-50 shot at playing. (Indianapolis Star)|
FF Today's Take: He may be listed as Questionable but the chances of him playing aren't good after missing practice the entire week. If Allen sites, increased action for Coby Fleener and receiver T.Y. Hilton will likely occur. Dominique Jones would be the second tight end behind Fleener.
