Rogers has rarely practiced since suffering a hamstring injury in preseason Week 2, including no reps at all this week. Until he strings together consistent appearances in drills, he doesn't appear to be a candidate to suit up on game days. During Rogers' absence, Kamar AIken has been filling in as the No. 3 wideout. However, Aiken is listed as questionable this week, so Quan Bray could be more involved than usual Sunday.
Indy's linebacking corps struggled against the pass Sunday. Bostic played his first game since 2015 after missing last season with a foot injury. While he didn't fare well against the pass, he may get a lot of opportunities to make tackles with a defense that will struggle to get off the field.
This is tough news for the Colts to swallow, as their offensive line is light on quality depth as is. With the given timetable, Kelly will likely miss at least the first two games of the regular season.
After going undrafted in 2016, Krieger-Coble ultimately ended up on the Broncos' practice squad. He spent the year there before getting called up for the final two regular-season games. He recorded one catch for 13 yards during that time. The Iowa product's lack of size is cause for concern, but he will look to turn some heads during training camp. He is one of six tight ends currently on the Colts' roster, so he will need to stand out in order to have a chance at landing on the final roster.
Mewhort finished the 2016 campaign on injured reserve due to a knee injury suffered in December. He was then limited during offseason activities. It looks like the injury won't be a concern for the preseason.
With Marlon Mack out this week, Jones will provide the Colts with backfield depth behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin. While Jones, who started for Washington in 2015 and 2016, is not a high-percentage lineup option in Week 3, his snap and touch counts will be worth monitoring in his debut with his new team.
Silberman will be eligible to sign elsewhere if he clears waivers.
Hooker got his first career start and was impressive as he also held his own in pass coverage. He'll likely have games with better tackle totals as he played all 66 of the defense's snaps.
Melvin and the Indy secondary struggled with Vontae Davis out with a groin injury. However, Melvin may have IDP value as he'll get plenty of chances to make tackles on a defense that struggles to get off the field.
Hazel was originally claimed of waivers from Washington before being let go last week. The former sixth-round pick has caught just one pass for one yard during his time in the league. He figures to provide depth at wide receiver to go along with a special teams role going forward.
Swoope had a knee scope in mid-August and missed the entire preseason, but initial reports suggested a long-term absence wasn't necessarily in the cards. He's a strong candidate to be one of the two players Indianapolis can bring back from injured reserve after Week 8. The team may decrease its use of two-TE sets in Swoope's absence, with Brandon Williams and Darell Daniels now set to compete for snaps behind starter Jack Doyle.
Binford was released by Cardinals in May before signing with the Colts in June. He was not expected to land on the final roster before getting injured.
Despite an overall poor day from the Indy defense in a 46-9 loss. Hankins fared well against the run as the Colts limited Todd Gurley to just 2.1 yards per carry. Hankins' primary role is to stop the run, but that's a skill that won't produce viable IDP stats for most leagues.
Turbin played more snaps on offense (28) than Robert Mack (11) behind Frank Gore in a reversal from Week 1. Turbin may get more playing time in the short term as Mack may have struggled in pass protection, but Mack may still get the nod as the starter if Gore were to get hurt given the explosiveness Mack has shown at times.
Hairston took over the nickelback role and got the third most playing time among the team's cornerbacks. He should continue to get signifcant snaps as long as Vontae Davis and Darius Butler remained sidelined with injuries.
This is an unfortunate development for Morris, who was thought to be the leading candidate to win the nickel corner role for the Colts. The only way he'll be removed from the Colts' IR list is through an injury settlement or if the team designates him as one of its two players allowed to return to the active roster later in the season.
Culliver has appeared in 52 career games (26 starts) with the 49ers and Redskins, totaling 137 tackles and seven picks along the way. Though he effectively missed the entire 2016 season with a knee injury, Culliver appears to be back at full health and should be given the opportunity to compete for a nickel or dime back role with the Colts' defense.
Despite an overall poor day from the Indy defense in a 46-9 loss. Woods fared well against the run as the Colts limited Todd Gurley to just 2.1 yards per carry. Woods won't produce many fantasy stats in his run-stuffing role, however.
Colts GM Chris Ballard said he expects Geathers to return at some point during the 2017 campaign. However, his career looks to be at risk after he needed surgery in the offseason to address a neck injury suffered in Week 12 of last season.
Mingo spent last season on the Patriots after being traded from the Browns last August. The former sixth-overall pick had just 11 tackles while playing in all 16 regular season games. He'll likely be a backup linebacker for the Colts in 2017.
Milton will serve as a reserve defensive back, but should get most of his playing time on special teams.
Bray will serve as Indy's kickoff and punt returner again this season. He didn't have a kick return attempt in Sunday's game. He'll also be used sparingly on offense as he barely got on the field as a receiver even with Chester Rogers missing the game due to injury.
Hilton didn't see a major change in performance with Jacoby Brissett under center compared to Scott Tolzien in Week 1, as neither quarterback has been effective at delivering the deep balls he thrives on. The speedster finished second on the team in both catches and yards to tight end Jack Doyle while the passing game was held out of the end zone altogether. Hilton desperately misses quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder), who doesn't seem particularly close to a return.
With Mack out this week, the Colts plan to promote fellow RB Matt Jones off their practice squad to provide Week 3 backfield depth behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin.
Morrison will look to return to action Sunday against the Browns after sitting out the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals. If active, the 22-year-old would likely reclaim a starting role at inside linebacker and take on a significant snap count.
Moncrief and new starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett didn't appear to get in sync and he didn't make some possible receptions. Given the decline in quarterback play without Andrew Luck to go with Moncrief's poor showing so far, it's hard to put much stock into his weekly output despite him being the No. 2 receiver.
Doyle was quarterback Jacoby Brissett's favorite target early on, catching four of his seven first-half completions while nobody else got more than one. While Brissett got more options involved after halftime, Doyle still finished well ahead of the pack with T.Y. Hilton coming a distant second in both receptions (four) and receiving yards (49). The tight end's pass-catching ability makes him a reliable option regardless of who starts under center.
Farley, an undrafted free agent in 2016, was just a depth safety and special teams player during his rookie season. However, he has emerged as a starter this year with the injury to Clayton Geathers. The 25-year-old has taken advantage of the situation thus far, as he improved on his eight tackles (six solo) in Week 1. He saw a relatively healthy 46 snaps (71%) in the Colts' loss Sunday, but he could be looking at even more time on the field in the team's upcoming battle with the Browns.
On Sunday morning, FOX's Jay Glazer relayed that Luck remains behind schedule and will miss 3-4 more weeks, so head coach Chuck Pagano's announcement Monday was expected. Because he's unable to make all the throws he must make before taking part in practice, Luck will yield quarterback duties to Jacoby Brissett.
Daniels, an undrafted free agent, has a chance to make the roster with Swoope expected to miss several weeks after minor knee surgery. Daniels spent his college career at Washington, where he accumulated 47 receptions for 728 yards and five touchdowns over three seasons. It's conceivable he could win a steady role in the offense if Swoope's injury is a long-term issue.
Sheard didn't generate any pass rush and was part of a defense that struggled in a 46-9 blowout loss. He played 50 snaps, but the Indy linebacking corps could be in flux early in the season with all new starters from the start of last season.
Gore powered the ball into the end zone from five yards out on the opening drive, asserting his dominance in goal-line situations. The 34-year-old veteran ceded six carries to Marlon Mack and three to Robert Turbin, but clearly remains the top option on the ground despite his advanced age. Gore's lack of burst at this stage suggests he'll need to score touchdowns to provide value and this performance showed that he's capable of doing so even with star quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) inactive.
Green started at cornerback in Week 1, but struggled in pass coverage. He may have a limited role off the bench and may be used at both safety and cornerback as a result.
Winn didn't practice Monday due to an undisclosed injury. His placement on IR opens a roster spot for the addition of fellow tailback Daryl Richardson.
Perry reached an injury settlement with the Chargers, which is why he was able to be released. Once he's recovered from his injury he'll be eligible to sign with another team and play in 2017.
Through two games, AIken has earned nearly 74 percent of the offensive snaps as the No. 3 wideout, which has been up for grabs due to the continued absence of Chester Rogers (hamstring). With Rogers out again and Aiken's Week 3 status unclear, Quan Bray could very well be more involved in the offense Sunday. Expect Aiken's availability to be cleared up, one way or another, in advance of kickoff at 1 PM ET.
Stewart dominated the competition in the Southern Conference at Albany State. He was a three-time first-teamer in the Southern Conference and has good size at 6-foot-4, 334 pounds, but Stewart will have a learning curve at the next level as he adjusts to NFL competition. Stewart is a project with upside, but some may consider him a reach even at the bottom of the fourth round.
Though Brissett has been with the Colts for less than a month after being acquired from the Patriots prior to final roster cuts, Tolzien performed poorly enough as starter in the team's embarrassing loss to the Rams in Week 1 for coach Chuck Pagano to go in a different direction. If Andrew Luck's shoulder injury keeps him sidelined for the foreseeable future and Brissett fails to ignite the offense or succumbs to an injury, it's possible that Tolzien gets another look as the team's signal caller, but he's unlikely to yield promising results in that scenario. For his career, the 30-year-old Tolzien owns a mediocre 61.6 quarterback rating and a 2:9 TD:INT ratio.
Michael suffered an injury during practice Wednesday and it appears as though it was at least somewhat serious. Indianapolis signed running back Troymaine Pope to take the place of Michael on the team's current roster.
Walker was an undrafted rookie who became a long shot to join the Colts' final roster after they traded for Jacob Brissett to serve as their third quarterback. Walker will stick around the organization to essentially serve as the No. 4 option.
The rookie fifth-round pick has only played in eight snaps this season, all of which were on special teams. There's still no clear timeline for Walker's return, but he'll likely need a full week of practice before he plays again.
Anderson played just 11 games last season due to a knee injury. He split time with Margus Hunt and the two may continue to split playing time.
The former Steelers and Titans linebacker had previously signed a one-year deal with the Colts in March, but was cut earlier this month when the team trimmed its roster to 53 men. However, with the Colts having an open spot on the roster when offensive lineman Denzelle Good (wrist) was placed on injured reserve, Spence was near the top of the list of players the organization wanted to bring back. Spence is expected to serve in a depth capacity at linebacker after accruing 54 tackles and three sacks with Tennessee in 2016.
Jackson took over as a starter at inside linebacker after several injuries and suspensions. He averaged 6.6 tackles per game over his last five games after getting more playing time and put himself in a position to contend for a starting job next season.
The 2017 third-round draft pick didn't make a strong impression in training camp and begins the season as a reserve player. He could get more playing time if he continues to show some spark in rushing the passer, however.
Burwell had been battling a hand injury all preseason and it ultimately cost him a spot on the 53-man roster. The offensive lineman played in 16 games over the past two seasons with the Chargers.
Mitchel is heading into his third NFL season and has yet to play a regular-season snap. When he gets healthy, he'll likely have a chance to sign onto a practice squad elsewhere.
Butler recorded three tackles in Week 1 against the Rams, but 2017 first-round pick Malik Hooker will take over at free safety in Week 2. If Butler can get healthy soon, he'll be slated for more starts, since Clayton Geathers (neck) is out through Week 6.
It's a good sign that Davis is back on the field even if he's working out by himself. Davis is desperately needed by the Colts' defensive corps, who were able to play well against the Cardinals in Week 2 but are facing more injuries with cornerback Quincy Wilson (knee) questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
George got most of his playing time on special teams (21 snaps) and will serve as a reserve linebacker.
As expected, Brissett will continue to hold down the fort in Luck's absence, which is expected to last another 3-4 weeks, at least. In six quarters under center with the Colts, he's completed 22 of 40 passes for 267 yards and one interception, while taking six carries for 22 yards.
Wilson just earned his first career start due to Vontae Davis (groin) sitting out in Week 2. The rookie second-round pick played well, recording two solo tackles and two pass breakups, helping the Colts hold Arizona to just 16 points in the overtime loss. Expect T.J. Green to slot in as the No. 3 cornerback for Indy while Wilson continues his road to recovery.
Simon started at strong-side linebacker and was improved in his second game with his new team as he provided a significant element in the pass rush.
Ridgeway played just 11 snaps on defense, but he could get an increased workload after showing a positive impact in the pass rush the first two games.
Hunt's play was about the only thing that well for the Indy defense in an embarrassing 46-9 loss. Hunt played 20 snaps on defense and provided a strong pass rush. He could be someone to monitor in deeper IDP leagues.
Vinatieri missed a 38-yard field-goal attempt and an extra-point attempt in Week 1, so it was good to see him bounce back in Week 2.
Williams played just 13 snaps on offense as the Indy offense hasn't utilized two tight ends much without an injured Andrew Luck at quarterback.
The NFL journey has been up and down for Desir, including being a starter for Cleveland during his first two years. Now in his fourth year, he was waived by Seattle on Saturday, but the Colts are hoping they've found a special teams threat with Desir.
It wasn't initially clear why the Colts moved Good to IR, but Holder's report helps clarify things. Assuming the Colts don't make Good one of their two players eligible to return from IR, he'll be sidelined for the rest of the 2017 campaign.
