Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Falcons with a quad injury. This is presumably an aggravation of the issue that limited him in practice all week and had him listed as questionable. Hilton at least racked up 8 catches for 65 yards and a score before exiting. We'll look for an update on his status.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week and was reportedly a game-time decision, so the quad issue is legitimate. It adds some risk to Hilton’s Week 3 outlook, but we’d feel fine keeping him in fantasy lineups.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision, so he’s clearly not at 100%. Consider Mack a risk/reward RB2 in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport labels Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) a "game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Falcons. Rapoport adds that there's "optimism" Hilton will play, while ESPN's Adam Schefter calls it "likely" that Hilton plays. Still, this is the 1st time we've heard any concern over Hilton's status, despite the fact that he was limited in practice all week. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but check back around noon ET to make sure he's active.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) "likely" to play against the Falcons today. "But team wants to test him in pre-game warmups before making any final decision on his status," Schefter adds. Mack only got in a limited practice on Friday, although the Indianapolis media always seemed optimistic about his Week 3 availability. We'll get his official game status by noon ET. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2.

The Colts have ruled MLB Darius Leonard out for Sunday's game against the Falcons because of his concussion. Rookie Bobby Okereke expects to see increased playing time in Leonard's absence. LB Anthony Walker will likely lead the group in snaps.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard no concern about his status. Keep Hilton penciled into fantasy lineups, but check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he's active.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the first 2 workouts of the week. The Indianapolis media seems to be optimistic about Mack's chances of playing vs. Atlanta. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2. If not, Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead back, with Nyheim Hines also playing an increased role.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons -- although insider George Bremer believes there's still a "decent chance" Mack plays. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners need to be making backup plans. Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead ball carrier if Mack sits.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday with a calf injury. The team only had a walkthrough, so it's an estimate of Mack's participation. This obviously bears monitoring over the next couple of days, though. Mack's absence would leave Jordan Wilkins as the Colts' lead ball-carrier, with Nyheim Hines potentially playing an expanded role.

Colts HC Frank Reich told reporters Monday that LB Darius Leonard developed concussion symptoms after Sunday's game against the Titans. Leonard is now in the league protocol and will need to pass through before he can play the Falcons on Sunday.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that Adam Vinatieri will kick for the team in Week 3. Vinatieri seemed to suggest that he was planning to retire after missing his 2nd and 3rd XPs of the season in Sunday's win over the Titans. We'll see if he can turn it around, but Vinatieri shouldn't be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri seemed to suggest to The Athletic's Stephen Holder that he's planning to announce his retirement tomorrow. Vinatieri missed 2 more XPs in the loss to the Titans after missing 2 FGs and 1 XP in the opener. The Colts would probably need to cut Vinatieri, so this would be a more ceremonious way for him to go out. Vinatieri turns 47 in December.

The Colts have placed WR Devin Funchess on IR with his broken collarbone. That knocks him out until at least Week 10, so Funchess can be dropped in redraft leagues. We'll see who picks up his snaps going forward. The 6'2, 202-pound Deon Cain might be a sneaky bet. Parris Campbell, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal are other candidates.

Colts WR Devin Funchess suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Funchess is likely heading for surgery. Expect the wideout to miss at least half the season. His injury will leave more available for fellow WRs Deon Cain and Parris Campbell.

Colts WR Devin Funchess appeared to hurt his left shoulder late in Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll pass along an update on his status when we get one.

The Athletic's Zak Keeker doesn't expect WR Parris Campbell to be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Chargers. The rookie missed most of August with a bum hamstring but flashed in the preseason finale with 3 catches for 42 yards. "[HC] Frank Reich and staff have been impressed at how quickly he's picked up the scheme," Keefer says. We wouldn't want to trust Campbell in fantasy lineups in his pro debut against a tough Chargers defense. But he's an intriguing bench stash -- even with Jacoby Brissett under center.

The Colts have reached agreement with QB Brian Hoyer on a 3-year deal with $9 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports. Hoyer will back up Jacoby Brissett and could present some upside as a cheap DFS play if the starter goes down.

Colts WR Parris Campbell played in the team's preseason finale, catching 3 balls for 42 yards, including this explosive catch and run. The rookie missed almost all of August with a bum hamstring and just returned to practice on Monday, so it was good to see him out there. Campbell's upside took a big hit with QB Andrew Luck's retirement. But he was flashing early in training camp and should quickly emerge as a top 3 WR in Indianapolis. You could do worse as a late-round pick in your fantasy draft.

Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) practiced on Monday for the 1st time since late July. That missed time is a big deal for a rookie -- even though he was reportedly balling out before going down. Throw in the QB downgrade from Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett, and Campbell doesn't look like an early-season fantasy option.
