Free-agent WR Artavis Scott (Chargers) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Indianapolis Colts Friday, Jan. 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett won't go under the knife    Fri Jan 3, 01:36 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) will not require surgery on his knee during the offseason, according to GM Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: Brissett was painfully average this year and that's why Ballard said the 'jury is still out' on his starting quarterback. The Colts have the No.13 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft and a quarterback might be an option for them there.

  Colts | No surgery for T.Y. Hilton    Fri Jan 3, 01:33 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) will not require offseason surgery on his injured calf, according to GM Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran wide receiver here. He wanted to play and tried to play at times with this calf injury but just wasn't the same. In 10 games, Hilton had just 45 catches for 501 yards and five touchdowns in 2019.

  Colts | Eric Ebron unlikely to return    Thu Jan 2, 11:02 AM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Eric Ebron is not likely to return to the Colts, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: That leaves Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox as the top two tight ends for the Colts entering 2020. Ebron should have a market for his services as a tight end who can line up all over the field. He had a down year in 2019, only appearing in 11 games and catching just 31 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett not set in stone    Thu Jan 2, 11:01 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2020, but general manager Chris Ballard doesn't rule out the possibility that could change. 'The jury's still out,' Ballard said.

Footballguys view: Ballard was very clear with his statements about Brissett. The Colts could be in the market for a quarterback in free agency or the draft to add competition at the position. They have the No.13 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft and could consider taking a quarterback in that spot.

Footballguys view: This is just one of the considerations the Colts will weigh when deciding whether to sign, trade for, or draft another quarterback, or just concentrate their efforts on developing Brissett as their quarterback of the present and future.

  Colts | Nothing doing for Jack Doyle in win    Sun Dec 22, 05:36 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle finished with two grabs and 17 yards on four targets in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Doyle was a disappointment after Eric Ebron went out although the team did sign him to an extension during the season, so he'll remain a core part of the offense next year.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton leads team in receiving    Sun Dec 22, 05:35 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted three receptions for a team-high 26 yards on four targets in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Hilton looked like he was healthy enough to be a solid start, but the Colts got out to a big lead and didn't need to pass much to secure the win. Hilton started to break down this year, but will probably be undervalued next year no matter who his quarterback is.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins rushed nine times for 84 yards and a score in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 20, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.

Footballguys view: Hilton is a solid PPR play this week with his uneventful return last week that resulted in no setbacks. He should get more snaps and targets this week. Another plus for Hilton this week is a conversation head coach Frank Reich and quarterback Jacoby Brissett had that created some changes to the passing game that will be implemented this week.
