The second-year speedster posted career highs in receptions and receiving yards, and his 61-yard touchdown catch early in the third quarter staked the Colts to a 17-3 lead at the time. Rogers saw some extra run with Kamar Aiken (hamstring) sitting out Sunday's contest, and his big-play upside might afford him additional opportunities moving forward, considering the team's need to develop playmakers for future seasons.
It was the Bostic's highest tackle count since Week 4, as his season total reaches 72 (44 solo). The linebacker is averaging just under 68 defensive snaps per contest, so he'll likely welcome the bye to rest up a bit.
Kelly's injuries didn't get in the way of him putting in a full practice Friday, so it's expected that he'll start at center and take all the snaps at the position throughout the contest.
Grace played in just five games for the Falcons this season since he dealt with a hamstring ailment. The Colts don't have a defensive role for him at this time, but as they progress in their rebuild, they likely believe he could be developed into a valuable asset.
Castonzo was limited to a handful of snaps in practice Friday after not practicing early in the week, but he is apparently well enough to play Sunday. The 29-year-old will start at left tackle for the Colts against the Texans.
Mewhort underwent an MRI after his knee swelled up Friday and it was decided that another surgery was necessary. The 26-year-old sustained a meniscus injury late last season as well, and will finish on IR for the second consecutive season.
Jones failed to practice Thursday and Friday of last week before ultimately being ruled out in advance of Sunday's win over the Texans. The fact that the running back is set to begin Week 10 preparations on the practice field portends well for his status for the Colts' contest against the Steelers, but don't expect Jones to have much of a role in the team's game plan.
Silberman will be eligible to sign elsewhere if he clears waivers.
With Hooker on the sidelines, the Colts only have two remaining healthy safeties -- Matthias Farley and Darius Butler. A quick return would be beneficial, but if Hooker can't make it back, he'll shift his focus to getting ready for a Week 8 matchup with the Bengals.
Melvin played on all of the defense's 71 snaps, so he looks back to full speed after missing a game due to a concussion.
The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.
Hazel's addition to the 53-man roster will give the Colts' a new No. 5 wideout after Quan Bray (undisclosed) was placed on season-ending injured reserve earlier this week. Hazel previously suited up for the Colts in Week 1 and Week 3, logging one reception for one yard across just seven total offensive snaps.
Swoope returned to practice Wednesday but wasn't activated from injured reserve for Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Steelers. With the Colts heading into a bye week, he'll have a good chance to return for the team's next game, presumably retaking his role as the No. 2 tight end. Swoope could find himself one Jack Doyle injury away from drawing regular targets.
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.
Hankins had been recovering from a shoulder injury that kept him out of practice last week, but with his return this week, it appears as though it was just a minor ailment. With this being the second injury Hankins has dealt with this preseason, expect the team to remain cautious, considering the start of the regular season is just under two weeks away.
Turbin suffered a dislocated elbow in Monday's loss to the Titans, with Colts head coach Chuck Pagano relaying a day later that the running back would be shut down for the remainder of the season. The 28-year-old's move to IR confirms as much, leaving the Colts with an opening in the backfield for more passing-down work. Josh Ferguson, who was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding transaction, could be tasked with handling a good chunk of the snaps that would have been designated for a healthy Turbin.
Hairston played 48 of the defense's 68 snaps, as he continues to see steady time in the nickel role.
Woods was a late addition to the injury report this week, but he was able to return as a full practice participant Friday. Although the 30-year-old has started at nose tackle for the Colts this season, his 18 tackles (10 solo), one sack and reduced snap count give him limited fantasy appeal.
Brent, a 6-foot-3 receiver out of Wake Forest, had previously been a member of the Seahawks' practice squad earlier this season. The Colts aren't dealing with any injuries among their wideouts on the active roster, but if health becomes a concern in the second half of the season, Brent could earn a promotion from the practice squad.
Geathers was placed on the PUP list just before the beginning of the regular season due to a neck injury he sustained last December. After practicing for the past couple of weeks, the veteran safety now will get a chance to return to game action next Sunday against the Titans. Geathers has starting experience with the Colts and could challenge Matthias Farley for the strong safety gig, but it may take awhile for him to get back into the swing of things.
Mingo started at outside linebacker for the injured John Simon for a second consecutive game. He's been productive when given more playing time, as he has 11 tackles and two fumble recoveries the past two games.
What Bray's injury is isn't clear, but Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star relays that the third-year wideout had been on the receiving end of some big hits in recent games. Bray has logged more than twice as many snaps on special teams than offense this season, making his greatest impact as a return man rather than in the passing game. With Bray out for the season, Marlon Mack is expected to replace him as the top kickoff returner, while Chester Rogers will be tasked with fielding punts.
After a 175-yard explosion against the Texans in Week 9, Hilton was unable to deliver anything close to a successful encore. The 27-year-old speedster saw Donte Moncrief and Chester Rogers take their turns logging long touchdowns in Week 10, while he posted his second-lowest yardage total of the season. Hilton's production has fluctuated throughout the season with Jacoby Brissett behind center, but three outings of over 150 receiving yards corroborate his massive fantasy upside. He'll look to return to those types of numbers versus the Titans following the Colts' Week 11 bye.
Mack played 25 snaps on offense compared to Frank Gore's 34 snaps. Mack will likely see more playing time later in the season as the Colts look toward 2018, but he'll have a prominent yet secondary role in the meantime. Mack offers big-play ability, but his upside is limited by Indy's overall struggles on offense.
Moncrief got loose down the left sideline for his score on the opening play of the second quarter, logging his first receiving touchdown since Week 4 in the process. Moncrief has had trouble establishing any semblance of consistency over the last month, as he's posted just four catches for 97 yards in his four contests over that span, even factoring in Sunday's production. The 24-year-old boasts plenty of raw talent, but he remains a fantasy enigma due to his inconsistency. He'll look to build on Sunday's effort against the Titans in Week 12 following the Week 11 bye.
The talented tight end saw his role considerably diminish Sunday, with his reception and receiving yardage totals serving as season lows. Doyle also saw his fewest targets since Week 3, leading to a forgettable afternoon overall from a fantasy perspective. Despite his unexpected downturn, the 27-year-old indisputably serves as one of Jacoby Brissett's most trusted targets, keeping his stock high heading into the Colts' bye week.
It was an odd game for Farley as he had four or more tackles in each of the last four games. He played on all of the defense's 56 snaps, so he should make a few tackles next week.
With Luck failing to progress as expected following the January procedure to address a torn labrum he initially sustained in 2015, the Colts finally elected to shut the franchise quarterback down for good earlier this month by moving him to season-ending injured reserve. Luck intends to rest the shoulder for a few months in order to let the recurring soreness he had experienced in recent workouts subside, but in the meantime, it appears he's being proactive in exploring additional ways to tend to the injury. The Colts are unlikely to issue a formal timetable for Luck's recovery any time soon, so it's too early to predict whether or not he'll be able to take part in offseason workouts next spring.
The undrafted rookie rarely logs a significant amount of offensive snaps, and he's been targeted just seven times this season, hauling in two receptions for 19 yards. Unless there's injuries, Daniels should stay off fantasy owners' rosters.
Sheard has provided a steady pass rush with 30 QB hurries, four QB hits and three batted passes, according to Pro Football Focus. He should continue to be a decent source of sacks.
The ageless tailback logged 17 carries for the second straight week, comfortably outpacing rookie Marlon Mack by 10 totes overall. Gore has averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry in three of his past four games, but that appears to largely be a function of the offensive line's substandard blocking. With lead-back duties still clearly in his possession and a modest role in the passing game, Gore remains viable in all fantasy formats. He'll look to better his production against the Titans in Week 12 following a Week 11 bye.
Since logging 62 defensive snaps in the opener, Green has been limited to six or fewer defensive snaps in five of the Colts' last six games, but he should be in store for one of his largest workloads of the season Sunday. With Malik Hooker (knee) moving to injured reserve this week and Rashaan Melvin (concussion) out, Green should see plenty of reps in nickel and dime packages even if he doesn't start.
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 was waived in order to make room for Clayton Geathers on the active roster. The 23-year-old linebacker could be a target for the Colts' practice squad should he clear waivers.
Anderson was competing among quite a few candidates to provide receiver depth on the final roster, but the Texans ultimately opted to let him go. Should he clear waivers, he figures to be a prime candidate for landing on the team's practice squad.
Aiken's absence this week should open up added opportunities for Chester Rogers and Matt Hazel, but neither is a high-percentage lineup dart this weekend, especially if both T.Y. Hilton (groin) and Donte Moncrief are available. Hilton was able to practice in a limited fashion Friday but is listed as questionable by the Colts heading into the weekend.
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.
Bond suffered a torn quad muscle in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, and the injury will require surgery. With that, Bond's season likely is over, and the Colts will be down to their third center until they can get Ryan Kelly (foot) back on the field.
Walker moved up to No. 3 on the QB depth chart before last week's preseason game, but may fall back to the No. 4 spot after he didn't do much and Stephen Morris played well. With Scott Tolzien struggling in the preseason and Andrew Luck still out with a shoulder injury, it's possible any of the Indianapolis quarterbacks could figure into the mix early in the regular season.
Walker has only played two games so far this season, as the rookie continues to battle hamstring injuries. Should he be cleared to play Sunday, look for the linebacker to play exclusively on special teams.
At this point in the season, Anderson will be unable to return by Week 17 once he undergoes surgery Friday. Oft-injured throughout his three-year career, the defensive tackle has appeared in just 29 games, accruing 65 tackles (43 solo), three sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Expect some combination of Margus Hunt and Hassan Ridgeway to cover the gap left behind by Anderson on the defensive front.
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.
Ferguson appears to have climbed to No. 3 on the depth chart as Matt Jones was inactive. However, neither Ferguson nor Jones will likely get significant carries unless Frank Gore or Marlon Mack were to get hurt.
Burwell was moved to the active roster after Andrew Luck (shoulder) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday. Burwell should serve as a depth lineman and special teams contributor for the time being.
Butler has moved into a more prominent role with Malik Hooker out for the season with a knee injury, as he's splitting playing time with T.J. Green opposite Matthias Farley. However, Butler hasn't been a prodigious tackler in his career, which limits his IDP value.
George got most of his playing time on special teams (21 snaps) and will serve as a reserve linebacker.
Per the report, the QB was checked out twice during the course of Sunday's game, but he was deemed able to carry on. In the process, Brissett completed 14 of 24 passes for 222 yards with two TDs and a pick to go along with four carries for seven yards. Brissett will now have added time to recover from his concussion symptoms, considering the Colts are on bye in Week 11.
Vander Laan looked good at the beginning of training camp, Connor Hughes of NJ Advance Media reported. He was pestered by a shoulder ailment, though, which kept him out of the final three preseason games and dwindled his chances of making a run for a roster spot.
Simon sustained a stinger in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars and was unable to return. Head coach Chuck Pagano indicated Monday that the 27-year-old "will miss some time." A more concrete recovery timetable should be available later in the week.
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 has been a disappointment in the league since the Bengals selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft, but the native Estonian emerged as a serviceable run defender this past season, albeit in a limited role. Now in Indy, he merely projects to serve as depth along the defensive line.
Vinatieri moved into second on the NFL's career scoring list with his performance, which included a 53-yard make. Although he hasn't missed a field goal since Week 1, the Colts' eighth-worst scoring offense leaves Vinatieri ranked 14th in scoring among kickers this season.
Williams has seen an increase in usage this season, with nine receptions for 102 yards. However, he hasn't been targeted in the red zone, making it difficult to give him much fantasy consideration, especially behind Jack Doyle. Expect Darell Daniels to see an increase in offensive snaps until Williams can return.
Desir looks set to remain in the starting lineup with the release of Vontae Davis. He held his own in pass coverage after struggling in his two previous starts.
Martin will provide the Colts with depth in the secondary with several players hurt ahead of the start of the regular season.
Hogan tore his ACL in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. The 22-year-old was elevated from the practice squad prior to Week 4 in order to provide depth at wide receiver. He failed to record a reception during his stint with the club.
The severity of the injury hasn't been specified, so it's unknown if Rice is likely to have an opportunity with another team.
The transaction sets the stage for Good to make his first appearance since Week 1 in Sunday's game against the Steelers. The return of Good, who can slot in at either tackle or guard, should bring more stability to Colts offensive line that has surrendered an NFL-high 36 sacks this season.
