Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and was listed as questionable, so there’s some added risk to using him in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. We'll look for updates on Doyle and will get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. His absence would be a big boost for TE Eric Ebron, was was out-snapped 56 to 32 by Doyle last week.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is active for tonight’s game against Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and still probably isn’t at 100%. That makes Hilton a risk/reward fantasy play.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Chiefs. He was reportedly a game-time decision, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that the team will “be cautious” with Mack. He’s a risk/reward fantasy play.

Colts RB Marlon Mack's status for tonight's game against the Chiefs will be a game-time decision, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the "team will be cautious." That's worrisome for the fantasy outlook on Mack, who missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a full workout Friday. If you're waiting on him, then you'll need to have Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins or a decent option from the Chiefs or 49ers available as a fallback.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "there is optimism" that Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will be able to return from his quad injury tonight against the Chiefs. Hilton is questionable after putting in limited workouts Thursday and Friday. The Sunday night kickoff for that game means most fantasy owners will have to make the call on whether to play Hilton before knowing if he'll be active. If you do want to wait for Hilton, potential fill-ins who might be available on the waiver wire include Deon Cain, Zach Pascal, Rashard Higgins (questionable, knee) and several 49ers.

The Colts have ruled LB Darius Leonard (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight game missed. LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is also questionable for the game. Walker didn't miss any practice this week and wasn't even listed on the injury report until Friday -- when he put in a full workout. We'd have to bet on him playing, but the status obviously means we'll need to check the Sunday night inactives.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. He sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices but was a full-go Friday. HC Frank Reich said early in the week that Mack wasn't medically ruled out of last week's game, so we're expecting Mack to play on Sunday night.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We should get an update on Hilton’s status on Sunday morning. WR Parris Campbell (abdominal) is out for Week 5.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. It's worth noting that he played back in Week 3 despite only getting in a limited practice on Friday with his calf injury. And HC Frank Reich said that Mack wasn't medically ruled out of last week's game. Mack still has a shot to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts HC Frank Reich said MLB Darius Leonard will put in a limited practice Wednesday, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. There's no word yet on Leonard clearing the concussion protocol, but this progress bodes well for his potential Week 5 return. If Leonard is ready for Sunday's game at Kansas City, then LB Anthony Walker would likely return to playing about half the snaps and not being a big IDP help.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That's not a good start in his quest to return for Sunday night's showdown with the Chiefs. We'll get another update on Hilton tomorrow.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that RB Marlon Mack wasn't knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Raiders by his ankle injury. It sounds like the Colts just opted for more Nyheim Hines in catch-up mode. That obviously adds game-script risk to Mack going forward. But it at least sounds like he'll be available for Sunday night's game in Kansas City (where game script could be a problem).

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered an ankle injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He was deemed questionable to return but never did. We'll look for an update on his status.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro (knee) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after hobbling through this injury last week. Pineiro isn’t a recommended Week 4 fantasy play.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Raiders. That leaves WRs Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers atop the depth chart. Cain and Campbell are the most exciting options but are really only in play for DFS tournaments.

Colts MLB Darius Leonard will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against the Raiders with a concussion. Leonard has yet to return to practice since suffering the injury. Leonard's absence boosts the tackle upside of LB Anthony Walker, who becomes a full-time player. DE Jabaal Sheard is questionable, however, for the 1st time this year. Sheard had knee surgery in early August and has been out since. Indy listed him as a limited participant in practice leading up the Week 3, but Sheard remained inactive. He continued to be limited this week but now officially has a chance to play. We wouldn't use Sheard in IDP lineups until we see about his snap count and readiness.

The Colts ended up listing WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) as doubtful on the final Week 4 injury report. So it looks like he'll be held out of Sunday's game against the Raiders. That leaves Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers as Indy's top 4 WRs. Cain led the group in snaps last week and is the best fantasy bet. But you should avoid this situation outside of DFS tournaments.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro (knee) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after gutting through this injury last week. Pineiro figures to play vs. Minnesota, but look elsewhere in fantasy lineups.
