  Colts | Spencer Ware to have surgery    Sat Aug 3, 04:48 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is scheduled to undergo ankle surgery and will be sidelined for five to six weeks. He likely will be able to play this season if he receives an injury settlement from the Colts.

Footballguys view: He won't figure into their plans unless he is re-signed after being released with an injury settlement. Ware is a good all-around back and is exactly what teams in need will be looking for in-season if they need a street free agent at running back.

  Colts | Spencer Ware placed on Reserve/PUP list    Fri Aug 2, 06:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Spencer Ware (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, Aug. 2. The team also signed free-agent DE Dadi Nicolas (Colts). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ware is a talented back but he always seems to be dealing with his fair share of injuries. This was called a 'muscle injury' by head coach Frank Reich, and now it will cost Ware at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Colts | Spencer Ware to PUP    Wed Jul 24, 11:06 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Spencer Ware (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 24, and he'll miss two weeks with an undisclosed muscle injury.

Footballguys view: Ware is a talented veteran but he's been banged up quite a bit during his pro career. No word on what the injury is, but Ware had better get healthy if he wants to win a job. The Colts have a deep and talented backfield, and Ware is just trying to latch on as veteran depth.

  Colts | Spencer Ware could be backup    Wed Jul 3, 01:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Spencer Ware could take over as the team's featured back if RB Marlon Mack were to miss time, in the opinion of The Fan's Kevin Bowen, who lists that scenario as 'quite possible.'

Footballguys view: Ware is certainly no slappy. He's a talented runner who just needs to stay healthy in order to produce if/when he gets an opportunity. The Colts have a muddled backfield behind Mack and they would likely go RBBC even more than normal if their starter went down.

  Colts | Jordan Wilkins fighting for roster spot    Tue Jun 11, 09:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts RBs Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams and Spencer Ware are vying to be Marlon Mack's 'mixer,' according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. It wasn't that long ago that Wilkins was thought of as a sleeper pick in the Colts jam-packed backfield and now he's fighting for a roster spot. One spot we think he should earn by the way, but Wilkins dynasty stock has certainly taken a hit. Mack is the main back for the Colts and Nyheim Hines can work as a change-of-pace back. We think the Colts keep Wilkins around, but he may not get much playing time unless there's an injury in front of him on the depth chart.

  Colts | Spencer Ware signs with Colts    Tue Apr 30, 10:04 AM

Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, April 30.

Footballguys view: The Colts cramped backfield gets quite a bit more crowded here. Ware is good when healthy, and he can work as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He's going to try and find a spot in the mix with guys like Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins, Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of his hamstring injury, according to head coach Andy Reid.

  Chiefs | Spencer Ware taking over top job    Sat Dec 1, 01:14 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware will be the team's starting running back moving forward after RB Kareem Hunt was released.

Footballguys view: Ware is a talented runner who could start for many teams around the league...and now he's back starting for the Chiefs. He's the hottest waiver wire pickup for Fantasy GMs with Kareem Hunt being released, and Ware should have RB1 value each week as the lead back for the Chiefs.
