Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

The Packers placed WR Devin Funchess on IR after he went down with an undisclosed injury last week. Funchess opted out of the 2020 season and played in just 1 game in 2019 before suffering a season-ending broken collarbone. He's still just 27, but Funchess' NFL career is on life support.

Packers WR Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season. He looked like Allen Lazard's biggest competition for the #2 WR job. Now Lazard will just need to hold off Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown. We'll see how the depth chart shakes out over the next month, but we're bumping Lazard up the WR rankings. Davante Adams, of course, is set to dominate targets in Green Bay again.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Packers are "expected" to sign WR Devin Funchess. The former Panther and Colt appeared in just 1 game for Indy last season before succumbing to a broken clavicle. Funchess would now join a Packers offense that saw Davante Adams dominate targets in 2019. Adams drew 127 in just 12 regular-season games. Aaron Jones ranked 2nd at just 68 looks, with Jimmy Graham behind him at 60. Graham has left for Chicago, and #4 Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw his playing time disintegrate late last season. In short, there's clear opportunity for Funchess. He should compete for the outside job opposite Davante Adams, with Jake Kumerow, MVS and Equanimeous St. Brown as current competition. We'll see what else the Packers add to the corps this offseason.

The Colts are not planning to activate WR Devin Funchess (collarbone) from the IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The plate inserted into the break did not work out as hoped," Rapoport adds. "He hasn’t healed enough." Funchess is set to hit free agency this offseason. The Colts will move forward with Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Chester Rogers as their healthy WRs. We'll see when T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) are able to return.

Colts WR Devin Funchess will return to practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a collarbone fracture in the season opener, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Funchess landed on IR after Week 1 but could be ready to return with QB Jacoby Brissett for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Funchess would return to a WR corps that's still missing T.Y. Hilton and rookie Parris Campbell. We'll watch his progress this week.
