Grant had two receptions for 30 yards on two targets in Sunday's win at Washington.
Grant didn't repeat the heavy usage of Week 1 (eight receptions and nine targets), but he still played the second most snaps on offense (43 snaps) of a receiver after T.Y. Hilton (55). He also played significantly more snaps than third receiver Chester Rogers (26 snaps) even though Rogers had three receptions. Grant still looks like the No. 2 option, but no receiver after Hilton had more than three receptions Sunday.
Grant caught eight of nine targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 34-23, Week 1 loss to the Bengals.
Grant was Andrew Luck's target of choice underneath, with none of his gains going for more than 13 yards. Indianapolis aired it out 53 times in this one, so it's fair to question whether this workload is sustainable for Grant. That being said, he seems to have emerged as the team's second-best wide receiver after T.Y. Hilton.
Grant had one reception for 17 yards on two targets in Saturday's preseason win over the 49ers.
Grant and Rogers had the same number of snaps on offense as it's not exactly clear how the playing time will be divided among wide receivers after T.Y. Hilton. By all accounts Grant won the No. 2 receiver role in training camp, but had just one reception in three preseason games.
Grant did not have a reception and was not targeted in Thursday's preseason win at Seattle. However, he did work with the first-team offense as the No. 2 receiver.
We wouldn't read too much into his lack of stats in Thursday's game. He began the game out wide as the No. 2 receiver and all reports in training camp indicate he's got a solid lead on the role. With Andrew Luck looking healthy, Grant could be a sleeper as one of Luck's primary targets.
Grant has started to separate himself from the pack in training camp and has become the clear leader for the No. 2 wide receiver role, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Grant, Chester Rogers, Deon Cain and K.J. Brent are the leading candidates for the No. 2 and No. 3 roles, which remain in flux during the preseason as it's a wide open battle. However, Grant appears to have the lead for the No. 2 job ahead of Thursday's first preseason game.
