Position Listing
Anthony Fabiano
The Colts promoted Fabiano to their 53-man roster Saturday.

Fabiano has spent time on the practice squads of the Patriots, Giants and Redskins this season before joining the Colts last week. The second-year center is expected to provide depth on the offensive line.

Chester Rogers
Rogers didn't reel in any of his three targets and had one carry for seven yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Rogers saw the second-most playing time (53 snaps) among wide receivers with Donte Moncrief (ankle) out, but the added workload didn't translate into much production. While Rogers looks primed to serve as at least the Colts' No. 3 wideout for the final two contests of the season, he wouldn't appear to have much upside amid Indianapolis' weak passing attack.

Jon Bostic
Bostic injured his knee in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Bostic's exact status is still unknown, but he is being evaluated and should have a more detailed diagnosis in the coming days. As long as he is out, Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are in line for extended snaps at linebacker.

Knee - Questionable for Week 16 at Baltimore
Ryan Kelly
Kelly (concussion) won't play Thursday against the Broncos.

Kelly was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, but his failure to take the field in any capacity Wednesday suggests that he may have hit a setback in his recovery from the concussion. With Kelly still in the NFL's protocol and now set to miss his third straight game, Mike Person is expected to pick up another start at center.

Concussion - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Jermaine Grace
Grace (hamstring) practiced without limitations Friday and will be ready for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Grace hasn't seen the field since Week 2 against the Packers, when he played strictly in special teams scenarios. Top middle linebacker Deion Jones rarely leaves the field, so don't expect Grace to log many defensive snaps or serve as a relevant fantasy option.

Anthony Castonzo
Castonzo (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

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.

Jack Mewhort
Mewhort was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury Saturday, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Mike Person
Person (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Because starting center Ryan Kelly is out with a concussion, Person is expected to snap the ball Sunday.

Matt Jones
Jones signed with the Colts on Monday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

The 2015 third-round pick has been with the Colts since the Redskins released him in early September, initially joining the practice squad and then making it up to the active roster. He was released Saturday but will rejoin the team just two days later, perhaps hoping to get a few more carries as the Colts play out the string of lost season. Jones has five carries for 14 yards in three appearances this year, and he'll still fall behind Marlon Mack (and possibly Josh Ferguson) if the Colts decide to cut back Frank Gore's workload.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Ross Travis
Travis brought in both of his targets for 33 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Travis saw increased playing time on offense (10 snaps) with Brandon Williams suffering a concussion. It's possible he could be given a larger role in the offense for the balance of the season, due both to Williams' injury and the fact he's likely to have increased his knowledge of the playbook since joining the Colts in late November.

Malik Hooker
Hooker injured his knee Sunday and is questionable to return, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.

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.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Rashaan Melvin
Melvin (hand) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Melvin demonstrated some progress in his recovery from the hand injury by practicing in a limited fashion Tuesday and Wednesday, but the lack of a full session likely prevented him from gaining clearance to play on a short week. With Pierre Desir (shoulder) on injured reserve and Nate Hairston (concussion) set to join Melvin on the inactive list Thursday, the Colts could be quite vulnerable in the secondary.

Hand - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Anthony Johnson
Johnson was promoted to the Colts' active roster Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Johnson has spent the past month on the Colts' practice squad after spending previous stints with the Jets and Patriots. Look for the Johnson to play in a reserve role on the defensive line behind starter Margus Hunt.

Colin Jeter
Rigoberto Sanchez
No Updates
Erik Swoope
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that Swoope (knee) won't be activated from injured reserve this season, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

The Colts designated Swoope to return from IR after he resumed practicing Nov. 8, but with the tight end's three-week evaluation window coming to a close Wednesday, Pagano and the coaching staff determined Swoope hadn't made enough progress to help the team over its final five games. The extended shutdown period will prevent Swoope from practicing again in 2017, but he should enter the Colts' offseason program at full health. Swoope could resurface as the top backup to Jack Doyle next season.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Kenny Moore
No Updates
Jeremy Liggins
No Updates
Harvey Binford
The Colts reached an injury settlement with Binford (undisclosed) on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

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.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 16 at Baltimore
Johnathan Hankins
Hankins (shoulder) is back at practice Monday, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.

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.

Robert Turbin
Turbin, who was placed on injured reserve Oct. 20, said he's fully recovered from a dislocated left elbow, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Turbin looks like he'll be in store for a normal offseason, but despite his good health, he won't be able to play in any of the Colts' final four games or practices during that stretch after the team already exhausted both of its designated-to-return-from-IR spots. The running back will enter the second year of his two-year contract with the Colts in 2018.

Elbow - Injured Reserve
Nate Hairston
Hairston (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Hairston didn't practice this week and has yet to clear the NFL's concussion protocol. The 23-year-old will hope to progress through the protocol in time to suit up Week 16 against the Ravens, but his absence Thursday leaves the Colts quite thin in the secondary.

Concussion - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Mo Alie-Cox
No Updates
Isaiah Williams
Williams was waived by the Colts on Saturday.

Williams was promoted to the active roster prior to Week 6, but failed to participate in any games. Assuming he clears waivers, the 24-year-old will either look for a new opportunity or land on the team's practice squad.

Kolby Listenbee
Listenbee was signed to Indianapolis practice squad.

Listenbee spent a part of 2017 with the Dolphins after being a sixth-round draft pick of the Bills in 2016.

Al Woods
Woods was dealing with a knee ailment but won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

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.

D.J. White
White was claimed off waivers by the Colts on Monday.

White was waived by the Chiefs over the weekend after being a healthy scratch in every game this season. Now with the Colts, White is unlikely to operate as anything more than a reserve option at cornerback.

K.J. Brent
Brent was promoted from the Colts' practice squad to their active roster Saturday.

Brent was brought in as a safety measure at wide receiver, as Donte Moncrief (groin) is questionable for the contest. Brent has been with the team since signing with the practice squad Oct. 24. Prior to that he spent time with the Seahawks and Raiders.

Clayton Geathers
Geathers (neck) isn't listed on the Colts' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans.

Geathers was recently activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list following a long recovery from a serious neck injury. Unless he endures a setback in practice this week, look for Geathers to make his season debut Sunday against the Titans. If he's able to claim a starting role, Geathers could have some IDP upside after logging 59 tackles and a forced fumble in just nine games last season.

Barkevious Mingo
Mingo had three total tackles and a sack in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Mingo has been pressed into a starting role at outside linebacker with John Simon (neck) on injured reserve. He's recorded a sack and forced fumble the past two games, but that probably won't be enough to put Mingo on the IDP radar over the Colts' final two contests of 2017.

Chris Milton
Milton (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Milton didn't participate in Friday's practice and was given a questionable designation, but it appears it may have been just for cautionary measure. The second-year pro has only played seven defensive snaps all season, so don't expect much of an impact Sunday.

Quan Bray
The Colts placed Bray on injured reserve Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury.

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.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
T.Y. Hilton
Hilton brought in five of seven targets for 41 yards and fumbled once in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Hilton checked in second behind Jack Doyle in both catches and yards on a night when Jacoby Brissett managed just 158 passing yards overall. The FIU product's fantasy upside continues to be capped by Brissett's penchant for short throws, as he's now averaged 11.5 yards per catch or less in four of his last five contests. On a more positive note, Hilton's reception total was his best since he'd also tallied five catches in Week 9 against the Texans. He'll look to boost his overall production against the Ravens in Week 16.

Marlon Mack
Mack carried six times for 14 yards and failed to bring in his only target in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Neither Mack nor Frank Gore got much work on the ground in a game that the Colts trailed for the majority of the second half. The rookie hasn't topped 46 rushing yards since Week 3, but much of that lackluster production can be directly correlated to his lack of opportunity. Factoring in Thursday's workload, Mack has only tallied double-digit carries once over the last nine contests. With the Colts playing out the string and Gore wrapping up his age-34 season, the 21-year-old could potentially see a bump in touches over the final two contests of the campaign.

Antonio Morrison
Morrison had 12 total tackles in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Morrison is averaging 7.3 tackles per game on the season, making him a steady source in that category in IDP leagues. He has failed to record a sack or interception, however, which has prevented him from ascending to the top tier of producers at linebacker.

Donte Moncrief
Moncrief (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

As head coach Chuck Pagano hinted earlier this week, Moncrief will miss his second straight contest with the ankle injury, with the Colts' quick turnaround between games not offering the wideout enough time to heal up. Pagano expressed optimism that Moncrief might be able to play Week 16 against the Ravens, but with only two outings of more than 60 receiving yards on his 2017 ledger, the fourth-year player doesn't make for an especially enticing option during the fantasy playoffs.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Jack Doyle
Doyle brought in seven of eight targets for 47 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Doyle led the Colts in receptions, yardage and targets on the night, as he continues to serve as a security blanket for second-year quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The fifth-year tight end now has a pair of seven-catch outings in the last four games, and although he's seen the occasional downturn, he continues to build on a career year that now has seen him post 71 receptions for 611 yards and three touchdowns. He'll look to continue building on those numbers versus the Ravens in Week 16.

Matthias Farley
Farley had nine total tackles and an interception in Sunday's 13-7 overtime loss at Buffalo.

Farley has been a reliable source of tackles other than an odd game where he recorded no tackles in Week 8. He's since averaged 6.2 tackles per contest in his last five games.

Le'Raven Clark
No Updates
Andrew Luck
Colts owner Jim Irsay said Luck (shoulder) won't require an additional procedure during the offseason and will return to the field in 2018, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. "He's doing great," Irsay said, in reference to Luck's response to rehab and treatment. "He's doing well. [We're] disappointed obviously it's taken as long as it's taken. You know, medicine and the way it goes. But there hasn't been any unusual setback. We didn't find out anything ominous, something we didn't know about or anything like that. It's just taken time for him to go through his whole aspect of rehabbing and progressing and working through the soreness."

The Colts were hopeful that the surgery Luck required to address a torn labrum in his right shoulder last January wouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season, but the franchise signal caller never ended up taking the field in 2017 after experiencing recurring soreness and swelling that resulted in ongoing setbacks for his recovery. Since being shut down for good in early November, Luck has headed overseas to Europe to receive further treatment on the shoulder, which has reportedly been beneficial. Jacoby Brissett will finish out the final three games as the Colts' starter before heading the reins of the offense back over to Luck, health permitting.

Shoulder - Labrum - Injured Reserve
Darrell Daniels
Daniels (hamstring) was ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos.

It marks the fourth straight missed game for Daniels -- who has been limited in practice each of the past two weeks -- which makes it difficult to figure where he is at in his recovery.

Hamstring - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Jabaal Sheard
Sheard had four total tackles, four QB hits and two sacks in Sunday's 20-14 win at Houston.

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.

Frank Gore
Gore rushed 10 times for 31 yards and brought in three of four targets for 37 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

Gore exited the game briefly in the second quarter with a knee injury, but he was able to return to start the second half and became the only other player in NFL history besides Emmitt Smith to post 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 12 consecutive seasons. The 34-year-old unsurprisingly saw a significant drop in workload from Sunday's 36-carry tally in Buffalo's blizzard-like environment, but his receiving yardage total was his second highest total of the season. Gore will now have nine days to prepare for a Week 16 tilt against the Ravens.

T.J. Green
Green (neck) was left off of Wednesday's injury report.

Green is expected to play Sunday against the Rams. Although he is still a backup, he recorded 43 tackles last season and proved he can hold his own, so Green should still see a fair share of defensive snaps.

George Winn
The Colts placed Winn (undisclosed) on injured reserve Tuesday.

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.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Joshua Perry
Perry was waived by the Colts on Tuesday.

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.

Joe Haeg
No Updates
Dres Anderson
Anderson was waived by the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

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.

Kamar Aiken
Aiken played just seven snaps on offense and was not targeted in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Aiken missed practice time during the week due to a hamstring injury but wasn't on the injury report and it didn't appear to be a factor in his lack of playing time. Aiken has become buried on the bench due to his inability to catch the ball as he's hauled in just 14 of 38 targets.

Joey Mbu
The Colts signed Mbu to a contract Tuesday.

The nose tackle will assume the roster spot of wide receiver Quan Bray (undisclosed), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. Mbu has appeared in two career NFL games, both of which came in 2015.

Grover Stewart
The Colts selected Stewart in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 144th overall.

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.

Scott Tolzien
The Colts officially named Jacoby Brissett as their starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, leaving Tolzien to serve in the backup role, Mike Wells of reports.

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.

Christine Michael
Michael was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an undisclosed injury, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

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.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Deyshawn Bond
Bond (quad) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

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.

Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Phillip Walker
Walker was just five of eight for 33 yards passing in Saturday's preseason loss at Dallas.

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.

Anthony Walker
Walker (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

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.

Henry Anderson
Anderson sustained a laryngeal fracture during Sunday's win over Houston and will be placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Neck - Injured Reserve
Edwin Jackson
Jackson had six total tackles in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

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.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Tarell Basham
Head coach Chuck Pagano said Basham will get more chances in pass-rush situations with John Simon (shoulder) on injured reserve, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Basham hasn't played more than 19 defensive snaps this season, but it sounds like he'll surpass that number Sunday against the Bills. The rookie third-round pick has two sacks already this season, proving he's capable of taking on the challenge.

Josh Ferguson
Ferguson had three receptions for 16 yards on three targets in Sunday's 30-10 loss at Jacksonville. He also returned three kickoffs for an average of 17.3 yards.

Ferguson played 16 snaps on offense mostly late in a blowout loss. He went four games without a snap on offense, so he'll likely only get playing time in lopsided games.

Tyreek Burwell
Burwell was promoted to the Colts' active roster Thursday, Mike Chappell of reports.

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.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 15 vs. Denver
Darius Butler
Butler had one tackle in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Pittsburgh while playing 49 snaps at free safety.

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.

Jeremiah George
George has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Broncos due to a neck injury, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.

George did not record a tackle before exiting. With Jon Bostic (knee) also dinged up, rookie Anthony Walker is in line for extended snaps at inside linebacker.

Neck - Questionable for Week 16 at Baltimore
Jacoby Brissett
Brissett completed 17 of 30 passes for 158 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos. He also rushed five times for 18 yards and a touchdown.

The second-year signal caller was under 200 yards passing for the fourth straight game, and he hasn't managed a completion percentage above 60 percent since Week 9. The high point of Brissett's night came on a seven-yard first-quarter scoring run that capped off a seven-play, 50-yard drive, his fourth rushing touchdown of the season. Brissett's production in the last month has been largely underwhelming from a fantasy perspective, but he offers some solid rushing upside and has impressively limited his interceptions to only seven over 14 games. He'll look to improve his numbers versus the Ravens in Week 16.

Quincy Wilson
Wilson played 47 snaps on defense and had four total tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 30-10 loss at Jacksonville.

It was the most extensive action the 2017 second-round draft pick has seen since Week 2. He could get more playing time with Pierre Desire and Rashaan Melvin now both injured.

Jason Vander Laan
Vander Laan was promoted to the Colts' 53-man roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Titans.

Vander Laan was signed to the team's practice squad Nov. 3. His promotion indicates fellow tight end Erik Swoope (IR/knee) will need another week before he returns. Do not expect Vander Laan to have an impact on the offense Sunday.

John Simon
Simon (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Simon suffered the shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. His season ends after nine games, in which he recorded 43 tackles (28 solo), three sacks and one interception which he returned for a touchdown. In his absence, look for Barkevious Mingo to take over starting responsibilities.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Jeremy Vujnovich
No Updates
Hassan Ridgeway
Ridgeway (shoulder) was a full participant at Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's game against the Bills.

Ridgeway logged a pair of limited practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned to full activity on Friday as he confirmed his availability for Week 14 barring any setbacks. He's slated to provide depth at defensive end in his return from a two-game absence.

Margus Hunt
Hunt had seven total tackles and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's 13-7 overtime loss at Buffalo.

Hunt is getting increased playing time with Henry Anderson (neck) now on injured reserve. He played a season-high 57 snaps Sunday.

Adam Vinatieri
Vinatieri made both of his field-goal attempts -- from 39 and 45 yards -- and his only extra-point try in Thursday's 25-13 loss to Denver.

Vinatieri missed both field-goal attempts in last week's loss to Buffalo amid blizzard conditions, but he unsurprisingly bounced back in returning to the friendlier kicking confines of Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium.

Brandon Williams
Williams has checked out of the hospital and returned to Lucas Oil Stadium after suffering a concussion, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Head coach Chuck Pagano added that Williams is doing well, which is great news considering how severe the injury looked at first. With the Colts well out of playoff contention and Williams' college career having been impacted by a spinal condition, it would not be at all surprising to see the team act extremely cautious with the tight end for the rest of the season.

Concussion - Doubtful for Week 16 at Baltimore
Pierre Desir
Desir (shoulder) was downgraded to out during the latter portion of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of reports.

Desir's status for Week 14 against the Bills is now up in the air due to his shoulder injury, so the Colts could once again be thin at cornerback, with Rashaan Melvin (hand) remaining sidelined as well.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Ronald Martin
Martin was called up from the practice squad Tuesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

With Marcus Gilchrist landing on injured reserve Tuesday, the Jets decided to promote Martin. The safety had previously spent time with the team in the preseason before being waived and eventually signed back on to the practice squad. He'll likely compete with Doug Middleton for defensive reps.

Krishawn Hogan
The Colts placed Hogan (knee) on injured reserve Monday.

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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Luke Rhodes
No Updates
Denzel Rice
Rice (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Texans on Friday.

The severity of the injury hasn't been specified, so it's unknown if Rice is likely to have an opportunity with another team.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 16 at Baltimore
Andreas Knappe
No Updates
Denzelle Good
Good suffered a knee injury and has ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's contest against the Broncos.

With Good sidelined, Joe Haeg will slide over to right tackle and Le'Raven Clark will take over at right guard.

Knee - Questionable for Week 16 at Baltimore
