    Colts' Griff Whalen: Two receptions in win

    Whalen had two receptions for 20 yards and was targeted three times in Sunday's win at Atlanta. Whalen didn't have a big fantasy outing, but he maintained his role as the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver despite Matt Hasselbeck taking over at quarterback with Andrew Luck hurt. Whalen, however, has lost his role as punt returner with Quan Bray taking over both punt and kickoff return duties.

    Colts' Griff Whalen: Growing role in offense

    Whalen had five receptions for 73 yards and was targeted six times in Sunday's win over St. Louis. Whalen's role in the offense continues to grow as he led the team in targets after also having five receptions last week. With Andre Johnson disappearing in the offense at times, Whalen may have become the No. 3 or No. 4 target in the passing offense.

    Colts' Griff Whalen: Could see larger role

    Whalen could see an increased workload Sunday against Denver if T.Y. Hilton misses the game due to a foot injury, ESPN reports. Whalen would be one of the top three receivers along with Donte Moncrief and Andre Johnson if Hilton is out. It seems unlikley Hilton will play after missing practice all week. Whalen had a season-high five receptions last week, so he may have been sent for a larger role even without Hilton's injury.

    Colts' Griff Whalen: Fumbles three times

    Whalen had three fumbles, losing one, in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. He played just two snaps on offense. Whalen lost a fumble on a kickoff return. He's usually a sure-handed special teams player, but he could be in danger of being cut as a week earlier he was involved in a fake punt fiasco that was an embarrassment in a loss to New England.

    Colts WR Griff Whalen contributes one catch to Sunday win

    Colts wide receiver Griff Whalen had one reception for 16 yards in the Week 4 defeat of Jacksonville. It was the only pass thrown his way. Whalen has taken over punt return duties after Phillip Dorsett struggled in Week 1 with the job. It looks like he is also becoming the No. 4 receiver, but that won't result in many targets.

    Colts promote RB Zurlon Tipton from practice squad

    The Colts have signed rookie running back Zurlon Tipton from the practice squad and added him to the 53-man active roster in time for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Saturday. In a corresponding move, the team has waived wide receiver Griff Whalen. The move was made to give Indianapolis some depth at running back after losing Ahmad Bradshaw for the remainder of the season with a fractured fibula and missing out on signing Ben Tate off waivers. Tate was waived by Cleveland and picked up by Minnesota. Tipton now joins Trent Richardson and Dan Herron as the only remaining backs on the Colts' active roster.

    Several Colts make minor mark on Sunday game

    Colts wideout Hakeen Nicks gained a starting spot for Sunday in Pittsburgh due to the absence of Reggie Wayne and did little with it. Nicks managed just one catch for 27 yards as one of several small offensive contributors. Also in that group was wideout Griff Whalen, who caught one pass for 23 yards, and running back Dan Herron, who chipped in with a reception for five yards while adding two yards on one carry. Tight end Coby Fleener also caught one for four yards.
