  • Colts' Marquis Young: Joins Colts

    Young signed a contract with the Colts on Monday.

    Young joins Indianapolis following the placement of D'Onta Foreman (triceps) on IR. The undrafted rookie out of Massachusetts faces long odds to make the Colts' 53-man roster as a depth running back.

  • Colts' D'Onta Foreman: Suffers torn biceps

    Foreman's placement on IR is the result of a torn biceps, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Per the report, Foreman faces a four-month recovery period, but on the plus side a full recovery is expected. It remains to be seen if playing at some point late this season is a possibility for the bruising back, but either way, the 2017 third-rounder is under contract with the Colts through the 2020 season.

  • Colts' Daurice Fountain: Lands on IR

    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.

  • Colts' Charcandrick West: Joining Colts

    West signed with the Colts on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The Colts will add some veteran depth after losing Spencer Ware (ankle) and D'Onta Foreman (undisclosed) to injuries. West doesn't offer much juice as a runner, but his experience and pass-game skills could allow him to push Jordan Wilkins (foot) and Jonathan Williams (rib) for the No. 3 job. For all their backfield injuries the past few weeks, the Colts at least have managed to keep the important players (Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines) healthy.

  • Colts' D'Onta Foreman: Lands on IR

    The Colts are placing Foreman (undisclosed) on injured reserve, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Touted as a candidate to displace Lamar Miller in the Houston backfield, Foreman instead was waived by the Texans in early August, subsequently landing with the division-rival Colts. Foreman's bid for reserve work in the Indianapolis backfield now ends before it ever really started, with the team bringing in Charcandrick West and undrafted rookie Marquis Young to fill out the roster. There hasn't been any report about the nature of the injury that forced Foreman to IR.

  • Colts' Braden Smith: Suits up Saturday

    Smith (groin) saw action for 19 offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Browns.

    Smith had been dealing with a groin injury since July 31 but was able to come back healthy. The Auburn product is coming off a season in which he started 13 of 15 games for an improved offensive line, and now that he's healthy, he's expected to regain his role as the starting right tackle protecting Andrew Luck.

  • Colts' Ben Banogu: Sees preseason action

    Banogu (hamstring) played 25 defensive snaps and two special teams snaps during Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Even though Banogu didn't record a fantasy-relevant stat, it's still a positive sign he played, given he'd been dealing with a hamstring issue for much of training camp. Now that he's healthy, expect the 2019 second-round pick to solidify himself as a depth option on the defensive line for the upcoming season.

  • Colts' Ryan Kelly: Back in action

    Kelly (shoulder) was able to suit up for 19 offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Kelly sustained a shoulder injury at some point in early August, which had kept him sidelined from team work. The fact that he was back healthy for the second preseason game suggests that the 26-year-old will assume his usual role as the starting center for Week 1 against the Chargers.

  • Colts' Jonathan Williams: Breaks rib Saturday

    Williams suffered a broken rib during Saturday's preseason game against the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The injury forced Williams out of the game and he was unable to return. Even though it ended his night early, the injury isn't expected to be serious per Rapoport. As long as Williams is sidelined, the door should be open for more reps for newly acquired D'Onta Foreman.

  • Colts' Jordan Wilkins: Held out with foot injury

    Wilkins (foot) didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against Cleveland.

    Starting running back Marlon Mack managed just 10 yards on six carries before giving way to Jonathan Williams (three carries for 15 yards) and eventually D'Onta Foreman (two touches for zero yards). With Nyheim Hines locked in for passing downs, Wilkins seems to be competing with Foreman, Williams and Aca'Cedric Ware for one or two roster spots. The continued absences from practices and preseason games are problematic for a player in Wilkins' position.

  • Colts' Aca'Cedric Ware: Gains 24 yards Saturday

    Ware had seven carries for 24 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

    Ware continues to get significant work in preseason games after eight carries for 25 yards in the preseason opener. However, the undrafted rookie out of USC has an uphill battle to win a roster spot and hasn't been overly impressive with a 3.3 YPC.

  • Colts' Ross Travis: Returns with TD catch

    Travis (hamstring) had one reception for a 24-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

    It was Ross' first game since suffering a torn ACL in the final week of the 2018 preseason. His return had been delayed by missing the first preseason game due to a hamstring injury. While Ross looks fully healthy, he still faces an uphill battle to secure a roster spot behind Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox.

  • Colts' Deon Cain: Seven receptions Saturday

    Cain had seven receptions for 80 yards on nine targets in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

    It was just Cain's second game in returning from an August 2018 ACL tear. He showed a spark with the second-team offense and looks ahead of schedule in his return from the injury. However, he'll likely have a hard time getting snaps on offense in the regular season amid a deep receiving corps. He could emerge with a larger role later in the year.

  • Colts' Chad Kelly: Another strong preseason game

    Kelly was 12-of-17 for 115 yards passing with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

    Kelly entered the game after Phillip Walker and may have faced an easier defense, but he outplayed Walker for a second consecutive game in the battle for the third-string QB role. Kelly will miss the first two regular season games due to a suspension, so Walker may get the nod initially to stay on the active roster. The Colts may keep a third quarterback on the active roster, which they don't typically do, with Andrew Luck questionable for the start of the regular season due to ankle and calf injuries.

  • Colts' Phillip Walker: Improves in second preseason game

    Walker was 10-of-17 passing for 109 yards with no interceptions or touchdowns in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

    Walker improved from his subpar first preseason game, but he was outperformed by Chad Kelly again in the battle for the third-QB role. However, with Kelly set to miss the first two games of the regular season due to a suspension, Walker could begin the season as the third quarterback. The Colts may keep a third quarterback on the roster, which they usually don't do, given Andrew Luck's questionable status for the start of the season due to ankle and calf injuries.

  • Colts' Rock Ya-Sin: Gets starting nod in nickel

    Ya-Sin started ahead of Quincy Wilson in the starting nickel package in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports. He did not have a tackle and was called for pass interference.

    While Ya-Sin didn't have a great game Thursday, he's drawn rave reviews in training camp and is pushing for a larger role at the start of the season. He could quickly get more snaps than Wilson in the secondary.

  • Colts' Jake Eldrenkamp: Out Saturday

    Eldrenkamp was ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Bears due to an eye injury, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    No word on the specifics of the injury or when it occurred. Eldrenkamp is looking to provide depth at guard for the Colts.

  • Colts' D'Onta Foreman: Receives two touches vs. Browns

    Foreman lost a yard on his only carry and caught his only target for a six-yard gain during Saturday's 21-18 win over the Colts.

    Getting his first taste of preseason action with his new club, Foreman entered the game in the second half and didn't make much of an impact aside from a short gain through the air. He was one of five running backs to touch the ball in this one, so the results aren't ideal for his chances of making the regular-season roster. Foreman could receive more touches next Saturday against the Bears, but he'll need to make the most of the opportunities he gets in order to impact the position battle.

  • Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Impresses in loss to Browns

    Brissett completed eight of his 10 pass attempts for 100 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 21-18 preseason loss to the Browns.

    Brissett did little on his first two drives, but he then impressed on a 10-play, 85-yard drive which concluded with his touchdown pass to Eric Ebron. The team seemingly saw what they needed to see on that drive, removing him prior to the team's next possession. Brissett will likely continue to ramp up his involvement next Saturday against the Bears as Andrew Luck (ankle) continues to rehab his injury. He could feasibly start the season opener against the Chargers if his aforementioned teammate isn't ready.
