Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He joins Kylen Granson in the TE corps, with TE Jelani Woods (shoulder) out.

Colts EDGE Kwity Paye popped up on the injury report after missing Friday's practice with ankle trouble. He's now questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. It's particularly worrisome because Paye missed 3 games with a high-ankle sprain before his Week 9 return. We'll see about his status Sunday, but you might not be able to wait for him in IDP lineups thanks to the late-afternoon kickoff.

Colts TE Jelani Woods (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. TE Mo Alie-Cox (ankle) is listed as questionable after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. Alie-Cox’s absence would leave TE Kylen Granson as Indianapolis’ clear lead TE. That might make him a DFS consideration, but you should be able to do better in season-long fantasy lineups.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. The ankle still adds some risk to his fantasy profile, as does a floundering Colts offense. But Taylor should be in for plenty of touches on Sunday as long as that ankle holds up. RB Deon Jackson (knee) is out for Week 10, leaving Jordan Wilkins as Indianapolis’ likely #2 RB.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. The supporting cast lowers Taylor's fantasy ceiling, but he'll be a solid volume- and talent-based starter.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. We'll see what Taylor does over the next couple of days. RB Deon Jackson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

The Colts have named former C Jeff Saturday the interim HC. Saturday, an ESPN analyst, has also worked as a consultant for the Colts. He doesn’t bring any coaching experience at the pro or college level, so there’s no track record to see how this team will look going forward. Given what we've seen from Sam Ehlinger, though, we're not banking on any miracles.

The Colts have fired HC Frank Reich, according to multiple reports. It's a notable fall for a guy who finished 3 of his 1st 4 Indy seasons over .500. The Colts, of course, fell off late last season and missed the playoffs at 9-8. Then they imported a veteran QB for the 3rd straight offseason. Matt Ryan has proved even worse than Carson Wentz, getting yanked 2 weeks ago in favor of Sam Ehlinger. That switch hasn't helped an offense that ranks last in scoring and 27th in total yards. It's tough to see this move making much impact for fantasy football scoring this year. Indianapolis still has a trash QB situation, Jonathan Taylor running on a sprained ankle and a weak offensive line. We're hoping for a switch back to Ryan at QB to at least support target volume for the team's wideouts.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Friday that EDGE Kwity Paye will play Sunday against the Patriots. He has been out since Week 5 with a high-ankle sprain but returned to full practice Thursday. He has moved up our Week 9 IDP rankings.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He aggravated that ankle sprain last weekend and didn't practice at all this week. HC Frank Reich said Friday that there are no plans to put Taylor on IR right now but labeled him "week to week." Indianapolis' bye isn't until Week 14. Taylor's absence leaves the Colts with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and the newly acquired Zack Moss. With Taylor out in Weeks 5 and 6, Jackson totaled 25 carries and 14 targets to Lindsay's 14 carries and 7 targets. Jackson should lead the way this weekend and is a decent RB2 play with 6 teams on bye.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He battled through this injury last week but certainly isn't a lock to play vs. Patriots on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update on JT. His absence this weekend would leave Deon Jackson as Indianapolis' likely lead back.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor will not practice today because of the ankle sprain he aggravated in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. Taylor returned to finish that game, so we'd bet on him being ready by this Sunday. But he's certainly no lock. We'd bet on Deon Jackson being the next man up if Taylor can't play, though we'll see how just-acquired Zack Moss factors in.

Colts HC Frank Reich discussed RB Jonathan Taylor’s ankle injury on Tuesday. “On that one long run, he twisted it, came down on it wrong and twisted it,” Reich said. “Was able to take a break there, get it re-taped and got back in there.” Reich cautioned that JT isn’t exactly out of the woods yet. “We’ll continue to re-evaluate it, see how it responded today,” he said. “Sometimes, a day or two later, it kind of aggravates you, but we’ll know soon enough.” Indy squares off with New England on Sunday. We’ll closely track Taylor’s practice participation over the coming days.

The Colts on Tuesday fired OC Marcus Brady. It's an understandable move for a team ranked 30th in scoring and 18th in yards, but we're not sure how much impact there will be. HC Frank Reich calls the offensive plays, and Brady worked under him since Reich took the Indy job in 2018. If Brady were a primary issue here, it's tough to imagine him climbing from QBs coach to OC in 2021 and then maintaining the OC job this season. We'll see where the Colts offense goes from here.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 16 times for 76 yards (4.8 per carry) in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. He left briefly with an ankle tweak but returned. RB Nyheim Hines carried 5 times for 20 yards and the team's lone TD. He added 2 catches for 29 yards. Deon Jackson took the remaining RB carry for a loss of 4. Next up: a Week 9 visit to New England. A road game at the Raiders follows.

Colts CB Kenny Moore (finger) is active for today's game against the Commanders.

Colts CB Kenny Moore is questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders after being added to Friday's injury report with a finger issue. We'll check his status Sunday. The team ruled EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) out for the game.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor carried just 10 times for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans, his return from a 2-game absence for an ankle sprain. Taylor added 7 catches for 27 yards on 8 targets, ranking 3rd on the team in that category. He ran just 3 more pass routes than Nyheim Hines for the game, according to Pro Football Focus, a significant change from Taylor's last time out. In that loss to Tennessee, Taylor ran 29 routes to Hines' 11. Hines added 5 receptions for 41 yards on 5 targets in Sunday's game and contributed just 2 rushing yards on 4 carries. Deon Jackson got 2 carries for 3 yards. Indy gets a challenging rushing matchup with Washington in Week 8 and then visits New England in Week 9.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. HC Frank Reich confirmed on Friday that Taylor will resume handling the bulk of the backfield work vs. the Titans this weekend. RBs Nyheim Hines (concussion) and Deon Jackson (quad) are also off the final injury report but aren’t viable fantasy plays.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's set to return for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars.
