  Colts | Fili Moala may not return    Fri Jan 23, 04:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Fili Moala is not expected to re-sign with the team this offseason.

Footballguys view: Moala tore his ACL and missed the entire 2014 season. He won't find a ton of suitors on the open market, but some team is likely to take a chance on the veteran defensive end.

  Colts | Cory Redding could retire    Fri Jan 23, 04:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Cory Redding is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: A leader on the defensive line, Redding has a long relationship with head coach Chuck Pagano. He had a $3.5 million salary in 2014, but he'd likely have to take a pay cut to stick around in 2015.

  Colts | Matt Hasselbeck unsure about future    Fri Jan 23, 04:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Matt Hasselbeck is not sure if he will retire this offseason or continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: Hasselbeck has been vacillating on whether or not he's going to continue playing for some time. He's set to hit free agency this year, but the Colts could easily re-sign him to continue as the backup quarterback behind Andrew Luck.

  Colts | Trent Richardson was suspended    Wed Jan 21, 09:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Richardson told the team he was dealing with a serious family problem. We're doubtful the team would suspend him if that was the case. He has a $3.1 million cap number next year-all guaranteed-but we think the Colts could cut him loose later this offseason.

  Colts | Dan Herron may not be starter    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Wells is right. Herron drops too many passes to be counted on as anything more than a part-time player. We'll likely see the Colts make a move for a free agent running back or select on in the draft.

  Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw update    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) has shed the cast on his leg and is in walking boot Tuesday, Jan. 20.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne undecided on future    Mon Jan 19, 06:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) is unsure if he will be returning for another season. Wayne was targeted just twice in the loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 18, and he didn't have any catches.

Footballguys view: The veteran receiver just isn't the same as he used to be. Wayne is hitting the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2015. Wayne said he plans to have surgery to fix a torn triceps this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts LB Andy Studebaker (chest) was punished on a block while playing on special teams in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18, against the New England Patriots. He was coughing up blood, and was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. He is officially listed as questionable to return.

  Colts | Indy working on deal with Andrew Luck    Sun Jan 18, 12:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has been working with the team on a contract extension that could be the richest contract in the NFL, according to a source.

  Colts | Trent Richardson doesn't travel with team     Sat Jan 17, 03:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Richardson was a healthy scratch last week against the Broncos, and now he'll miss the AFC Championship. Behind Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton on the depth chart, Richardson's game has fallen off more than ever this year. He's due to make $3.2 million (fully guaranteed), but we still think the Colts will consider releasing him.

  Colts | Dan Herron the key to victory?    Fri Jan 16, 08:14 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.

Footballguys view: This is a super simplified way of looking at the matchup against the Patriots. They could give Herron 20 carries, and it doesn't put an automatic "W" on the board. The Patriots are a tough matchup, and we think Herron is best suited getting a lot of receptions out of the backfield. We're not predicting a ton of success on the ground for the Colts. This game will come down to Andrew Luck and his ability to lift this team.

  Colts | Hakeem Nicks to play a key role    Fri Jan 16, 03:52 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks figures to play a key role in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18, especially if the Patriots use CB Darrelle Revis to try to shut down WR T.Y. Hilton. Nicks has been showing more explosiveness in the offense in limited snaps of late. WR Reggie Wayne has just three of QB Andrew Luck's 77 postseason targets.

Indianapolis Colts CBs Vontae Davis (knee) and Greg Toler (groin) were both limited in practice Friday, Jan. 16, and are questionable for the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Colts head coach Chuck Pagano expects both players to play against the Patriots. This is good news for a Colts secondary that will be facing Tom Brady on Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts signed practice squad WR Griff Whalen to their active roster Thursday, Jan. 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also placed LB Josh McNary on the exempt/commissioner permission list.

Footballguys view: Just a little depth for the Colts - nobody added now is going to really have much of an impact, or at least you cannot expect them to.

  Colts | Pats have run all over Colts    Tue Jan 13, 12:13 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 166 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional matchup between the two teams in 2013, and RB Jonas Gray slashed Indy for 201 yards on the ground this past November. The Patriots used an offense that featured a power-back look with a sixth offensive lineman against the Colts in November. 'As a defensive player, you don't want to ever have that happen again,' Colts DE Cory Redding said. 'We didn't have our best game. It's up to us to do what we've done the past few weeks, to make sure that never happens again.' New England rushed for just 14 total yards in their divisional win over the Baltimore Ravens last weekend, but they pretty much abandoned the run in the second half.

Footballguys view: Gray's game was epic...and he's barely been in the box score since that time. The Colts will again struggle to stop the Patriots on the ground. It could be a long day for the Colts defense in the AFC Championship Game.

  Colts | Andrew Luck hasn't beaten Pats    Mon Jan 12, 12:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is 0-3 and has thrown eight interceptions in his three career games against the New England Patriots. "I'd like to think I'm a better quarterback and we're a better team and more well-equipped to handle the unknown and the unforeseen," said Luck, who threw for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 42-20 loss to the Patriots at home Nov. 16.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Luck can actually get it done this week in Foxborough. The Colts are playing hot right now, and Luck will certainly go down swinging in the AFC Championship game.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne not a factor    Sun Jan 11, 08:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne had no catches and was targeted just once in the team's 24-13 win over the Denver Broncos in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Wayne has seen better days. He's not the same player he used to be, and Wayne is going to be a free agent in 2015. Wayne would like to stay with the team, but that's no guarantee. We can't imagine the market being white hot for his services.

  Colts | Dan Herron shows versatility    Sun Jan 11, 08:45 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron ran 23 times for 63 yards and a score and added eight catches for 32 yards in the team's 24-13 win over the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Herron was used in many different ways against the Broncos. While the overall numbers are not overwhelming, he did do enough to keep the chains moving on multiple plays.

  Colts | Trent Richardson inactive    Sun Jan 11, 03:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has been ruled inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Even when he's active, he's inactive. In all seriousness, Richardson has been a huge disappointment during his time with the Colts. The former third overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft has struggled to stay healthy and productive as a pro.

  Colts | Pocket passers have hurt Colts    Fri Jan 9, 05:17 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo went a combined 99-for-135 for 1,266 yards, 15 touchdowns and only two interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts this year, and the Colts were 0-4 in those games. Indy also sacked those QBs just twice. 'You've got to do a great job of mixing things up,' Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'There's nothing that (Manning) has not seen. Obviously, we know he's going to do his homework and be prepared as well as any quarterback can be prepared. We just got to do a great job of mixing things up.'

Footballguys view: Manning had a good game against the Colts in Week 1. The Broncos were let down by their lack of a ground game at the time, and that's why the Colts were able to come back after being down 24-0. This time around, C.J. Anderson (not Montee Ball) will be counted on to smash the Colts between the tackles. Advantage: Denver.

  Colts | Trent Richardson working with punt team    Thu Jan 8, 01:31 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was working with the punt coverage team in practice Thursday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: This is where the number-three pick in the 2012 NFL draft has ended up - on special teams. If you needed any more proof that Richardson has low dynasty value and may not ever again be the back many forecast he would be when he came out of Alabama.

  Colts | Trent Richardson's role unclear    Thu Jan 8, 01:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's role is unclear leading up to the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11, after he was demoted to third on the depth chart behind RBs Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the team's wild-card playoff win. Richardson only played on one offensive snap last weekend. "We're going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we'll know more as we go through the week," head coach Chuck Pagano said.

Footballguys view: Acquiring Richardson has been a disaster for Indianapolis, as has been thoroughly and well-documented at this point. Richardson is not worth a start or a spot in a playoff league.

  Colts | Trent Richardson would be costly cut    Thu Jan 8, 10:30 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's $3,184,062 salary for 2015 is fully guaranteed, and he has an $8.5 million option for 2016. The team would have to eat his '15 salary if he's cut.

Footballguys view: It's hard to keep beating the drum about this because at this point we know it was a horrible trade for Indianapolis. They may have to wait and get rid of him down the road when the cap hit is less catastrophic. Maybe he'll turn it around before....sorry couldn't finish that sentence without LOLing. The problem is Richardson has regressed so badly he might not recover. The vision, toughness and aggression he ran with in college is gone and it is hard to imagine he will find it again.

  Colts | Andrew Luck struggles on road in playoffs    Wed Jan 7, 04:41 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is 0-2 with a 50.5 completions percentage with two touchdowns and five interceptions in the playoffs on the road in his career. At home in the playoffs, he's 2-0 with a 67.4 completion percentage with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Footballguys view: Luck is going to have his hands full against the Broncos. Denver can get after the quarterback with DeMarus Ware and Von Miller, plus their secondary features two top-10 cornerbacks in Aqib Talib and Chris Harris. The Colts are unlikely to have success on the ground against Denver's no.2 rushing defense, so expect them to go to the air early and often.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton dropping passes in playoffs    Wed Jan 7, 01:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been targeted the third most times (53) in the last three years in the playoffs, but his six drops are a league high in the playoffs in that span. Hilton dropped three passes last week in the wild-card playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals while still managing to catch six passes for 103 yards.

Footballguys view: The Colts need Hilton to play up to his potential against the Broncos on Sunday. Against Denver's no.2 rush defense, Indy is likely to have to go through the air in order to keep things close. This means lots of targets for Hilton. We'll see if he can come through for Andrew Luck this week.

  Colts | Andrew Luck shows maturity    Tue Jan 6, 06:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was often forced to throw the ball underneath to keep drives going against the Cincinnati Bengals in the wild-card playoff win last weekend. Luck targeted RB Dan Herron 11 times, and the running back caught 10 of those for 85 yards. Luck was also 7-for-11 for 126 yards and a touchdown on blitzes. He also didn't commit a turnover after turning the ball over 22 times during the regular season.

Footballguys view: Luck essentially took what was there against the Bengals on Wild Card Weekend. He'll follow a similar strategy against a tougher Broncos defense on Sunday in the Divisional Round. Connecting on longer targets could prove to be difficult against guys like Chris Harris and Aqib Talib.

  Colts | Dan Herron to return to starting role    Tue Jan 6, 06:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron will return to a starting role against the Denver Broncos in the divisional round game Sunday, Jan. 11, after fumbling twice in the team's wild-card playoff win last weekend. Herron was pulled from the game in favor of RB Zurlon Tipton after fumbling the second time, but he returned to the game later.

Footballguys view: Herron had a good game with a large role against the Bengals. Running room will be much tougher to come by against the Broncos no.2 ranked rush defense.

  Colts | Re-sign Michael Hill    Tue Jan 6, 02:50 PM

The Indianapolis Colts re-signed RB Michael Hill Tuesday, Jan. 6. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Missouri Western State product is a player we're monitoring in super super deep dynasty leagues. He was originally undrafted in 2013 and signed with the San Diego Chargers after the draft. Hill has a nice blend of instincts and vision, but he's bounced around to five different NFL teams in two years.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) was active for the wild-card playoff game but was held out of the game. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he expects Richardson to play in the Divisional Round playoff game.

Footballguys view: Richardson should be better next week before the game against the Broncos on Sunday. Against Denver's number two rushing defense, we're not expecting a lot from Richardson or Dan Herron on the ground.
