Colts TE Jelani Woods (shoulder, quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Cowboys. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so he should be available. But with TE Kylen Granson back from his illness, Woods is not a reliable Week 13 fantasy play.

The Colts have ruled CB Kenny Moore (ankle) out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. That can only help the matchup for WR CeeDee Lamb, who was already an easy starter.

Colts TE Jelani Woods (shoulder, quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. The rookie broke out for a 8-98 line in Monday night's loss to the Steelers but is now in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. We'll see how Woods is listed on the final injury report tomorrow. TE Kylen Granson (illness) has been a full-go in practice this week and should be back for the Dallas game.

Colts EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks a big improvement after he missed all 3 days of practice last week, and then the game. Paye looks like he should be ready to face the Cowboys on Sunday night, though we'll watch him this week to confirm. CB Kenny Moore -- who left Monday night's game with a shin injury -- missed Wednesday's workout.

Colts TE Kylen Granson (illness) is inactive for tonight's game against the Steelers. That leaves a little more room for TEs Mo Alie-Cox and Jelani Woods to potentially factor into DFS showdown lineups.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner (ribs, illness) and EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is active for tonight's game against the Steelers. EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) is inactive.

The Colts on Sunday added LB Zaire Franklin to the injury report as questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers because of illness. We'll check his status when the inactives come out. If Franklin sits, E.J. Speed should be the next LB up to join Bobby Okereke. Indianapolis also downgraded EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) to out for the game. The team is reportedly optimistic about having DT DeForest Buckner (ribs, illness) and EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) available. Both are officially questionable.

Colts TE Kylen Granson (illness) is now listed as doubtful to face the Steelers on Monday night. Formerly, he was listed as questionable. Look for the Colts to lean on TEs Jelani Woods and Mo-Alie Cox against Pittsburgh.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers. He finished the practice week with a full Saturday workout, though, after sitting out the previous 2 days. Buckner is listed with a rib issue and illness. We'll confirm his status ahead of Monday's game but would bet on him playing. Colts DT Grover Stewart and Steelers DL Larry Ogunjobi can be fallback options for IDP lineups. Colts edge players Kwity Paye (ankle) and Yannick Ngakoue (back) are also questionable and don't look worth waiting for. Paye missed all 3 days of practice this week. Ngakoue left Friday's practice early and then missed Saturday.

Colts TE Kylen Granson was limited in practice all week with an illness and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Steelers. Indianapolis would be left with TEs Mo Alie-Cox and Jelani Woods if Granson is unable to play. Continue avoiding the situation in season-long leagues.

Colts WR Alec Pierce caught just 3 passes for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but he drew a team-high 8 targets. That came in the 1st game all season in which Pierce ran more routes than WR Parris Campbell. Michael Pittman (7) and Campbell (6) finished close behind in targets. Pittman led the team with 6 catches and 75 yards. Campbell caught 5 balls for 67 yards. Next up for Indy: an upside passing matchup with Pittsburgh.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor loaded up on carries in Sunday's narrow loss to the Eagles, rushing 22 times for 84 yards and a TD. He added 3 catches for 10 yards among 4 targets. RB Deon Jackson matched that target count by carried only once. RB Zack Moss added 2 carries for 7 yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson stepped in as the primary back in 2-minute drill situations. That role will pump up a RB's target count. Fewer such situations should shift a bit more work from Jackson to Taylor.

Colts TE Jelani Woods (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles. That again leaves Indianapolis down to Kylen Granson and Mo Alie-Cox at TE. They both ran routes on about half of Colts pass plays last week, but Granson out-targeted Alie-Cox 4 to 0.

Colts LB Shaquille Leonard had back surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season. The operation was reportedly successful, so he should have time to get ready for 2023. In the meantime, Zaire Franklin and Bobby Okereke should be locked in as Indy's full-time LBs the rest of this season.

The targets returned Sunday for Colts WR Parris Campbell, with QB Matt Ryan taking back over for Sam Ehlinger. Campbell matched WR Michael Pittman for the team leads in targets (9) and receptions (7) in the win over the Raiders. He turned those into 76 yards and the team's lone TD catch (from 35 yards out). Pittman gained just 53 yards on his 7 catches (7.6 per reception). TE Kyren Granson checked in 3rd with 4 catches for 57 yards. Campbell now has 9+ targets and 7+ receptions in each of the past 3 Ryan games.

The Colts started QB Matt Ryan in the 1st game under interim HC Jeff Saturday, and he proved solid in the victory over the Raiders. Ryan completed 21 of his 28 passes for 222 yards (7.9 per attempt), 1 TD and no INTs. His lone TD pass went to WR Parris Campbell on a 35-yard pass and run. Ryan added an uncharacteristic 38 yards and a TD on the ground. The start came as a surprise because Saturday said at his introductory press conference that he planned to keep Sam Ehlinger in the lineup. The move back to Ryan should be good for Colts receivers, though Week 11 brings a tough matchup with the Eagles.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran healthy in Sunday's win over the Raiders, racking up 147 yards and a TD on 22 carries. That score came from 66 yards and featured Taylor outrunning DBs to close it out. He added 2 catches for 16 yards in a game that found Jordan Wilkins and Zack Moss minimally involved behind him.

Colts beat writer Zak Keefer tweeted that it “appears” QB Matt Ryan will start today against the Raiders. Ryan was seen taking snaps with starting C Ryan Kelly in pre-game warmups. We’ve updated projections to account for the news.

Colts EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders.

2:37pm EST 11/13/22

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.
