Shark Bites

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday, putting him on track to play against the Titans on Monday night. Doyle hasn't scored yet this season and has topped 41 yards in just 1 of 4 games. He remains a low-upside TE2 until QB Andrew Luck returns.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still "more than a week away" from being ready to make his 2017 debut. So it sounds like Week 8 against Cincinnati is the earliest we'll see him. (It's probably a good thing that he's missing next week's game vs. the Jaguars elite pass defense, anyway.) We'll continue to track his progress.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and will play against the 49ers this weekend. The rookie has tallied 16 touches and 2 targets in 2 appearances. He’s not a fantasy option but does ding RB Frank Gore’s projection a bit.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He actually put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday before sitting out Friday, so it looks like he suffered a setback. We'll track Doyle's status next week.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano ruled out QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) for this weekend's game against the 49ers. No surprise there. Pagano did confirm, however, that Luck will make his practice debut on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to return for Week 6 against the Titans.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will return to practice this week, GM Chris Ballard said Monday. It'll be Luck's 1st official work since undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder in January. “We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week," Ballard said. “We’ll see how much he gets. But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we’ll get him back on the field." Luck is expected to need at least 2 weeks of practice before playing in a game. That makes Week 6 his earliest likely return. Insider Mike Chappell calls Week 7 or 8 "more likely." Regardless, Luck is certainly worth scooping up if he's available in your fantasy league. He'll carry some risk in his 1st game or 2 but could re-emerge as a high-end QB1 over the 2nd half of the season.

Colts TE Jack Doyle is in the concussion protocol, HC Chuck Pagano said Monday. Doyle exited Sunday night's game to get checked for a concussion but was cleared and allowed to return. He must have experienced symptoms after the game or on Monday. Regardless, he's now iffy for this weekend's game against the 49ers. Doyle hasn't been much of a fantasy option without QB Andrew Luck, topping 41 yards just once in 4 games.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is out for Sunday night’s game in Seattle. Kamar Aiken will continue to serve as Indy’s #3 WR but isn’t a fantasy option.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) is out for Sunday night’s game in Seattle. Robert Turbin will continue to serve as the #2 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not practice this week, HC Chuck Pagano said Wednesday. Luck will need to get back on the practice field next week if he's going to debut in Week 6. ESPN's Chris Mortensen believes Week 7 is Luck's most likely target.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano ruled out QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. The bigger takeaway from the Monday press conference was Pagano saying Luck "might" be able to start practicing this week. That, of course, follows Sunday's report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Luck is targeting a Week 6 return. ESPN's Chris Mortensen said earlier on Monday that Week 7 is the most likely return date. Either way, we can finally see the light at the end of this tunnel.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is targeting a Week 6 return, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "You may see Andrew Luck doing some work" at practice this week, Rapoport adds. Luck is expected to need at least 2 full weeks of practice before being ready for game action. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. Kamar Aiken will continue to serve as Indy’s #3 WR.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. Robert Turbin will serve as the clear-cut #2 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't practice this week. There's still no timetable for his return to the field. Considering he's been sidelined since January, Luck figures to need at least a couple of weeks of practice before playing in a game. That makes Week 5 his earliest potential return.

The Colts on Monday ruled out QB Andrew Luck for Week 3. Same as last week. Considering Luck still hasn't returned to practice, Week 5 is looking like his earliest possible return date now. QB Jacoby Brissett will get another start this Sunday against the Browns. He was at least an upgrade over Scott Tolzien this past week, completing 20 of 37 passes for 216 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. It’s a surprise after he was a full-go in Friday’s practice. Kamar Aiken will continue handling #3 WR duties but isn’t a fantasy option with Jacoby Brissett under center.

The Colts have ruled LB Antonio Morrison out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals with an elbow injury. Jon Bostic was already the 100% playing-time LB if you were looking for a Colts LB in your IDP lineup.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so we’re expecting him to play. But Rogers is not a fantasy option at least until QB Andrew Luck returns.

The Colts will start QB Jacoby Brissett against the Cardinals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a surprising development given Scott Tolzien's horrid Week 1 against the Rams -- and previous lackluster play. Of course, Brissett just joined the team after the 4th set of preseason games and reportedly still split 1st-team reps with Tolzien in practice this week. The move can't hurt for the Colts' other skill guys. But Brissett is no more than a cheap DFS consideration for fantasy purposes this week. When Andrew Luck will return remains a mystery.
