Dontrelle Inman Injury Updates

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on the injury he sustained in last weekend's opener, but HC Anthony Lynn admitted that he's "absolutely" concerned about Williams' availability for Sunday's game against the Lions. His absence would leave Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman behind Keenan Allen on the WR depth chart.

The Chargers have signed WR Dontrelle Inman, who was released by the Patriots over the weekend. Inman spent the first 3+ seasons of his career with the Chargers, including a 58-810-4 2016 campaign. With nothing behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin on Los Angeles' WR depth chart, Inman could quickly emerge as the #4. Even then, though, he'd need an injury to 1 of the guys in front of him to have a shot at fantasy value.

Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and Dontrelle Inman (shoulder, finger) are active for today's game against the Texans. Hilton has been playing effectively through this ankle injury for the past month and remains a high-upside fantasy play vs. a Houston defense he routinely torches. Inman and Chester Rogers will serve as the Colts' #2 and #3 WRs today.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman is expected to play today against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Inman's officially questionable with shoulder and finger injuries but in limited practices all week. Inman caught 9 balls over the past 2 games and scored in each. He finished 5 of his past 8 games with 4+ receptions.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’d take on a bigger role against the Cowboys on Sunday if T.Y. Hilton can’t go. But even then, Inman would be a desperation fantasy play.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman recently had core muscle surgery and is expected to be sidelined for 6 weeks, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. That timeline would cost him the rest of offseason workouts but have him back on the field for the start of OTAs. Inman turned in a career-best 58-810-4 line for an injury-ravaged Chargers offense last year. If the WR group is healthy this year, though, he figures to be 5th on the depth chart behind Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen suffered an apparent right knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He had to be carted off the field. This obviously looks like a significant injury, but we'll update his status when we learn more. His absence would leave San Diego with WRs Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman atop the WR depth chart. TE Antonio Gates would probably be the biggest beneficiary.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson suffered a torn meniscus in Sunday's practice and will undergo surgery soon, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. It's "unclear" whether the injury will end Johnson's season, Silver adds. It certainly sounds like the 30-year-old is looking at an extended absence, though. He's not worth rostering in redraft fantasy leagues. Johnson is mostly a short-range possession receiver for San Diego, so his absence figures to benefit Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead most. Dontrelle Inman, Javontee Herndon and Tyrell Williams will battle to take Johnson's #3 WR spot.

Chargers WR Dontrelle Inman left the field on a stretcher after taking a shot to the head in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos.  We'll update his status when we learn more.  San Diego is left with WRs Stevie Johnson, Malcom Floyd and Javontee Herndon.

Update: Inman has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a neck injury.
