Shark Bites

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.

The Chargers have placed WR Dontrelle Inman (quad) on IR. He actually led the team with 76 receiving yards last week, filling in for WR Mike Williams. We'll see if Williams and/or Travis Benjamin are able to return for Sunday's game against the Broncos. If not, it'll be Geremy Davis as the #2 WR.

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.

The Chargers have signed K Chase McLaughlin. K Mike Badgley is expected to miss "a couple [more] weeks" after suffering a setback with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So L.A. will turn to McLaughlin, an undrafted rookie who connected on 44 of 59 FG attempts (74.6%) at Illinois over the past 3 seasons.

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.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman suffered a quad injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game in Miami. We doubt he returns with L.A. up by 17. Inman finishes with a 5-76 line on 7 targets.

Colts DE Jabaal Sheard will make his season debut today against the Raiders. He's active for the 1st time following a summer knee injury that required surgery. Sheard still hasn't returned to full practice, and we wouldn't bet on a big role for him today. We'll be curious to track his participation and progress, though.

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.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He didn't practice all week, but insider Mike Chappell notes that Hilton played in 4 games without practicing last year. We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Raiders this weekend, but he's certainly in danger of missing the game and won't be at 100% if he does suit up.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) didn't practice on Wednesday. We're not expecting him to practice much, if at all, this week after aggravating that quad injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Hilton could still play against the Raiders this weekend, but fantasy owners should have a backup plan lined up.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) was non-committal when asked about his Week 4 status on Tuesday. "If I can play, I'll play," he said. Hilton was limited in practice all last week with the quad injury and then aggravated it in the win over the Falcons. We'll track his practice participation over the next few days.
