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.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) put in his 1st full practice of the season on Wednesday. Burton has been limited to 43% and 61% of Chicago's offensive snaps over the past 2 games. He was in the 75-85% range when healthy last year. We'll see if he gets back up into that territory now that he's evidently over the groin issue. Burton still isn't a recommended Week 4 fantasy play but might be worth stashing in deeper leagues.

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.

Bears TE Trey Burton is active for tonight's game against Washington. That's no surprise, given that Burton played through a questionable tag in Week 2 and then continued practicing through this week. Burton played a limited 43% of the snaps last time out and remains a risky fantasy play for DFS lineups.

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.

11:09am EDT 9/22/19

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.

Bears TE Trey Burton is questionable for Monday night's game at Washington with his groin injury. Burton played through a "questionable" tag last week but saw just about half of his normal playing time. He continued to put in only limited practices this week and remains a weak fantasy play for Week 3.

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.
