The Colts have elected to extend a contract tender to Fountain (ankle), which ensures that the exclusive rights free agent will remain with the team, Joel Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports. The 2018 fifth-rounder is bouncing back from a dislocated and fractured left ankle that he suffered this past August, with his recovery having progressed to the point that he recently resumed running routes. Fountain will now look to re-prove his health in the coming months with an eye toward carving out a meaningful role in Indy's passing game this coming season.
Fountain (ankle) returned to the practice field Monday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. Fountain was placed on injured reserve in August after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated and fractured left ankle, so he didn't play at all during the season. His return to the field already likely means he'll be ready for training camp and to battle for a roster spot.
Fountain (ankle) has been placed on IR. The move was expected after Fountain suffered a dislocated and fractured left ankle last week. The 2018 fifth-rounder will now focus on recovering from his injury, with an eye toward making a run at a roster spot next season.
Fountain (ankle) was released from the hospital Friday and will undergo surgery. Fountain suffered a serious ankle injury during the team's final training camp practice Thursday, and while it remains unclear how long the second-year wideout is going to be sidelined, the fact that he has to undergo surgery is certainly not a good sign. The Colts should have an update on his timetable following the procedure.
Fountain sustained a dislocated and fractured left ankle at Thursday's joint practice with the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After putting together an impressive training camp and preseason Week 1 performance, Fountain went down during team drills and was in obvious pain. Considering the nature of the injury, he seems destined for injured reserve and may stay there for the entirety of his second campaign.
