Inman (shoulder) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. It's looking like Inman will sit out practice for the third day in a row, which certainly isn't a good sign in regards to his Week 14 availability. The Colts will reveal his official status for Sunday's matchup with the Texans when they release their final injury report later Friday.
Inman (shoulder) wasn't spotted on the field for Thursday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Inman didn't practice in any fashion Wednesday either, clouding his status as the Week 14 tilt with the Texans approaches. The release of the Colts' final injury report of the week Friday should provide official word on how Inman's status is trending for Sunday, but he won't make for an especially enticing fantasy option even if his availability isn't in any peril. Inman has drawn consistent volume over the last five games with between four and seven targets in each contest, but he's reached the end zone just once in that span and has topped out at six receptions for 52 yards.
Inman didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury. Inman handled his usual workload in Sunday's 6-0 loss to Jacksonville, catching two of six targets for 14 yards while playing 71 percent of the Colts' offensive snaps. He's landed between four and seven targets in each of the past five games, maxing out at six catches for 52 yards during that stretch. An absence this weekend against Houston would free up snaps for some combination of Ryan Grant, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers (groin).
Inman had three receptions for 40 yards on four targets in Sunday's 27-24 win over Miami. Inman's role in the offense continues to expand, as he played the second-most snaps (46) among the team's wide receivers in Week 12. Though his fantasy ceiling isn't especially high while working behind clear No. 1 wideout T.Y. Hilton, Inman has carved out modest utility of late with 17 receptions for 167 yards and a touchdown over his last four games.
Inman caught four of six targets for 34 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 38-10 win over the Titans. Inman went up high in the back of the end zone for a seven-yard score late in the third quarter, holding on after a vicious hit from Titans corner Malcolm Butler. Inman, who was solid during his time with the Chargers, has looked good since signing with Indianapolis last month, with 14 catches on 17 targets in his past three games -- primarily as a possession option that possesses good size. Week 12 bring a Miami defense ranked in the middle of the league with 250 passing yards allowed per game.
