Colts WR Chester Rogers has signed his 2nd-round restricted free agent tender and will stay with Indy for the 2019 season. Rogers spent 2018 as the Colts' primary slot WR and should fit easily into that role again, between T.Y. Hilton and free-agent addition Devin Funchess. Rogers ranked 4th on last year's team with 72 targets, 11.2% of the team total. He'll be tough to count on for any more than that with Funchess arriving and TE Jack Doyle returning from injury. Tendering Rogers at the 2nd-round level, however, shows the Colts didn't want him to leave.
Colts WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder, finger) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans. WR Zach Pascal (knee) is also listed as questionable. He was sidelined on Tuesday, limited on Wednesday and a full-go on Thursday. We're expecting both of these guys to play but will find out for sure around 3 pm ET on Saturday. WR Ryan Grant (toe) has been ruled out.
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. He didn't practice all week and his status beyond Week 6 remains unclear. It's worth noting that Indy's bye isn't until Week 9. Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant will continue to serve as the team's top 2 WRs.
Colts HC Frank Reich labeled WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) and TE Jack Doyle (hip) "week-to-week." That doesn't sound promising for their chances of playing against the Jets on Sunday. Hilton's absence would again leave Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant as Indy's top 2 WRs -- and low-end fantasy options in PPR leagues. And Doyle's absence would mean another big workload for TE Eric Ebron.
As expected, Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, chest) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. We'll see if he can get back for Week 6. Hilton's absence leaves Ryan Grant, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal as the Colts' top 3 WRs.
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) did not participate in the team's Tuesday walkthrough, according to insider George Bremer. HC Frank Reich seemed to confirm earlier in the day that Hilton won't play against the Patriots on Thursday night. 'We'll miss TY, but at the same time you’ve just got to have the next-man-up mentality," Reich said. The Colts will roll with Ryan Grant, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal as their top 3 WRs.
Colts rookie WR Deon Cain suffered an ACL tear in Thursday night's game against the Seahawks and will miss the rest of the season. The 6th-round pick had been building buzz since the spring and appeared en route to immediate impact on the offense. His injury likely solidifies Ryan Grant's status as the #2 wideout and leaves opportunity for WR Chester Rogers -- along with other new targets such as TE Eric Ebron and rookie RB Nyheim Hines. Cain remains an attractive dynasty stash. He turned 22 this week.
Colts HC Frank Reich said Sunday that Ryan Grant has "separated" from the pack in the competition for the team's #2 WR job. Chester Rogers has reportedly struggled early in camp, and rookie Deon Cain has "leveled off of late" after a strong start, according to the Indy Star's Zak Keefer. This battle isn't over yet. But if you're taking a shot on a Colts WR late in your draft, Grant looks like your guy for now.
Colts rookie WR Deon Cain had a strong spring and has carried that momentum into training camp. He was a standout in Thursday's session, according to the Indy Star's Zak Keefer. HC Frank Reich has noticed. “In this league, you gotta make chunk plays,” Reich said. “He flashes, he’s got a little knack, he’s good against press coverage.” The Colts' #2 WR spot is wide open behind T.Y. Hilton. Veterans Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers still look like the favorites for the job, but there's certainly opportunity for Cain. We'll continue to track his progress.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. It’s a surprise after he was a full-go in Friday’s practice. Kamar Aiken will continue handling #3 WR duties but isn’t a fantasy option with Jacoby Brissett under center.
Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so we’re expecting him to play. But Rogers is not a fantasy option at least until QB Andrew Luck returns.
Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s opener against the Rams. He was expected to serve as the #3 WR, but that gig now goes to Kamar Aiken. Of course, he’s not a fantasy option with Scott Tolzien under center.
Chester Rogers has worked as the Colts' #3 WR in the team's last 2 training-camp practices, according to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer. That's ahead of Phillip Dorsett and Kamar Aiken. Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official website wrote back in June that Rogers was a candidate for this role -- but it's starting to look like he's the favorite for it. Rogers went undrafted last year out of Grambling State, where he never topped 735 yards or 6 TDs in a season. He tested as a 62nd percentile athlete, though, and averaged 14.4 yards on his 19 catches last year. We just bumped Rogers up the WR rankings.
Kevin Bowen of Colts.com considers Chester Rogers a candidate for the team's #3 WR job this season. Rogers posted a 19-273-0 line as an undrafted rookie last year and has impressed this offseason. “He’s slowed down and played a little more under control in that way – not slowed down his speed, but as far as his mind,” OC Rob Chudzinski said. “He’s seeing things better, whereas last year he was running around like crazy. Right now, I think he’s understanding, getting things better and you see the progression you expect to see out of a second-year player.” We're still betting on either Kamar Aiken or Phillip Dorsett emerging as the Colts' #3 WR, but it'll be a situation to monitor when training camp gets underway.
Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. Chester Rogers will step in as Indy’s #2 WR, putting him on the WR4 map in fantasy football.
