Colts' Arthur Jones: Gets four-game PED suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL policy on PEDs, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle and did not participate in spring practices. He may have been sidelined to start the season even without the suspension, but this still hurts Indy's depth on the defensive line.

Colts' Frank Gore: May see less carries in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Colts plan to reduce Gore's workload in 2016, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

The 33-year-old logged 260 carries in 2015, but averaged an ineffective 3.7 yards per attempt that was notably less than his previous career-low figure of 4.1. A lighter load in 2016 could keep Gore fresh and more productive on a per-clip basis, and will also allow the Colts to effectively take stock of their backfield talent with an eye towards a point in time when Gore is no longer part of the equation. In addition to the presumed reduction of wear and tear the extra rest will bring, the real boon to Gore's prospects and health this upcoming season will be the Colts' newfound emphasis on their offensive line.

Colts' Phillip Dorsett: Expected to start in new-look Colts offense
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dorsett is projected for an every-down role in 2016 with the Colts transitioning to what is "definitely going to be a three-wide-receiver offense," ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

Dorsett endured an injury-marred rookie season in an offense that regularly featured two tight ends, but the Colts have extensively operated out of three-wide receiver sets during their offseason program. With the departure of TE Coby Fleener (Saints), this trend is expected to continue into the 2016 season. The main beneficiary in such a scenario would be Dorsett, who would consequently see every-down snaps on the outside opposite Donte Moncrief (toe), with T.Y. Hilton manning the slot. Additionally working in Dorsett's favor are the losses of Andre Johnson (free agent) and Griff Whalen (Dolphins), whom, along with the aforementioned Fleener, were the recipients of a combined 188 targets in 2015. Looking ahead, Dorsett's usage in the coming season could likely resemble his role during Week 17 last yeAr, when he logged 53 snaps, received nine targets split wide, and recorded a tote out of the backfield as well.

Colts' Tyler Varga: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varga (concussion) has been cleared for football activities and intends to play in 2016, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

It has been roughly nine months since Varga suffered the concussion, but the running back will indeed make a second attempt to crack the Colts' 53-man roster. "It comes down to this: I'm back here because I want to compete again," Varga declared. Unfortunately for Varga, though, he won't be competing against an injured Dan Herron and Vick Ballard this time around. Instead, he'll be squaring off with Robert Turbin, Jordan Todman, Trey Williams and rookie Josh Ferguson for a role behind the incumbent starter, Frank Gore.

Colts' Henry Anderson: In final stages of ACL rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) is in the final stages of ACL rehab, the Colts' official site reports.

Anderson is just over eight months removed from the injury, but still hasn't been tagged with a return date as the Colts are being very cautious with their standout sophomore. Back in June during the Colts' mandatory minicamp, GM Ryan Grigson echoed that very sentiment, stating that Anderson will not be on the field until he is 100 percent healthy. Until further notice, consider Anderson questionable to play Week 1.
