  Colts | Johnny Robinson back with Indy    Thu Aug 22, 12:22 PM

Free-agent DT Johnny Robinson re-signed Thursday, Aug. 22, with the Indianapolis Colts. In a corresponding move, the Colts released RB James Williams.

Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri (knee) said he expects to participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 22. He has missed the first two preseason games because of a knee issue.

Footballguys view: Cole Hedlund has had a good preseason in his place and might be getting the attention of teams like the Bears and Packers, who were in on Ravens kicker/punter Kaare Vedvik before the Vikings traded for him.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to sit out practice another week    Tue Aug 20, 02:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) will not participate in practice for at least another week, according to head coach Frank Reich, who noted Luck's issue is a matter of 'full-speed movement versus pain threshold.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are nervous about this Luck injury...and for good reason. Missing another week of practice further puts his status for Week 1 in question. We'll see if Luck can actually get out there for practice during the final week of the preseason.

  Colts | D'Onta Foreman sticking with team    Mon Aug 19, 03:40 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB D'Onta Foreman (biceps) will remain with the team while rehabbing torn biceps. He's expected to miss four months but the team intends to keep him for next year.

Footballguys view: Foreman is ineligible to be designated to return since he was put on I.R. before final cuts. He's a talented big back but injuries have robbed him of the potential he once had. Foreman is no lock for the 53-man roster in 2020.

Updating a previous story, Indianapolis Colts WR Daurice Fountain (leg) suffered a dislocated and fractured ankle Thursday, Aug. 15. He's expected to have surgery right away.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the young player here. Fountain is done for the year with this injury and faces an uncertain future as he recovers. He's set to be an ERFA in 2020.

Indianapolis Colts WR Daurice Fountain (leg) was carted off the practice field Thursday, Aug. 15, after going down with what appeared to be a serious leg injury.

  Colts | Andrew Luck likely out for preseason    Tue Aug 13, 08:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) is unlikely to play in the preseason due to an ankle issue, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Just when you think Luck is in the clear, this ankle/calf/bone-thing comes to the forefront. Ballard said he's not ready to say the regular-season opener is in jeopardy due to the injury and Luck will continue rehabbing. Luck still has an ADP of QB4 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Andrew Luck has a bone issue    Tue Aug 13, 10:08 AM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is dealing with a 'small bone issue,' and it's nothing to do with his Achilles', according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: Okay, at least we have more clarity on this situation. Luck has been missing time in training camp but the team expresses no concern about him missing the start of the regular season.

  Colts | Parris Campbell has setback    Mon Aug 12, 11:46 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) was close to returning Sunday, Aug. 11, but he felt a little something in his hamstring.

Footballguys view: No need to rush the rookie into the lineup. As excited as we are about the former Ohio State star, we'd rather see that hamstring injury fully gone and Campbell out there as close to full strength as possible.

  Colts | Isaiah Langley signs with Indy    Sun Aug 11, 02:10 PM

  Colts | Jordan Wilkins dealing with foot issue    Sat Aug 10, 03:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (foot) is not practicing because of a foot injury, and head coach Frank Reich said the team is trying to determine the best course of action for Wilkins.

Footballguys view: Jonathan Williams or D'Onta Foreman have a chance to make the team as the third back if this ends up being a long term injury. Williams is a Chris Ballard favorite and should stay on our deep dynasty radar until this is resolved. He's having a good camp and preseason so far.

  Colts | Parris Campbell may return soon    Sat Aug 10, 03:52 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) is expected to return to practice in the next few days, according to the Athletic's Zak Keefer.

Footballguys view: Campbell was turning heads in practice with his advanced route running before the injury. He is still not getting to build rapport with Andrew Luck, but as long as Campbell gets back in the groove without re-injuring the hamstring, he'll be a worthy late round pick.

  Colts | Indy remains hopeful with Andrew Luck    Fri Aug 9, 03:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is still considered day-to-day, and the team remains 'confident' and 'optimistic' he will be ready in time for the regular-season opener.

Footballguys view: Luck will miss the last three team practices and we will probably not see him in the preseason. We can't be sure he'll play Week 1 until we see positive practice reports. His value should be falling at the overstocked quarterback position.

  Colts | Daurice Fountain plays well    Fri Aug 9, 11:13 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Daurice Fountain had five catches for 63 yards in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8.

  Colts | Marlon Mack will not play Thursday    Wed Aug 7, 11:30 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: In two seasons in the NFL, Mack has never played a full 16-game season. He made it through 12 games in 2018 and the team doesn't need to expose him to more punishment in the exhibition season. Mack is the lead back for the Colts and Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at RB18 (3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Footballguys view: Ware spent time with the Colts earlier in training camp. He was originally picked up as an undrafted free agent out of USC this year.

  Colts | Deon Cain making progress    Wed Aug 7, 12:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Deon Cain (knee) will play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: Cain has looked good in training camp so far. We love him in deep dynasty formats, and he needs to carve out a spot on the depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess and rookie Parris Campbell. Cain was a sixth-round pick out of Clemson in the 2018 NFL draft. He's a smooth route runner with a good size/speed combination.

  Colts | Andrew Luck's absence not phasing head coach    Tue Aug 6, 08:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) missed his seventh straight practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, due to a strained left calf and is fully expected to not play in Thursday's preseason opener - or maybe at all during the preseason - but head coach Frank Reich is keeping a level head. 'If I learned anything - and I learned a lot from Tony Dungy, working with him - he literally never flinched,'' Reich said. 'Even when our best players got hurt, you would look at him and you would think it was just ... he was never overly concerned. ... I just think that's important.''

Footballguys view: Luck's calf injury is just the latest concern with the star quarterback. Reich expects Luck to be ready for the regular-season opener. We'll get a better feel for that as we get through the month.

  Colts | Keith Ford let go    Mon Aug 5, 05:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Keith Ford was waived Monday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: The Colts had to free up some room on the roster with the addition of D'Onta Foreman. Ford was picked up by the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M last year. He spent most of the 2018 season on their practice squad but did get on the active roster for a couple of games at the end of the year.

  Colts | Indy scoops up D'Onta Foreman    Mon Aug 5, 04:53 PM

Free-agent RB D'Onta Foreman (Texans) was claimed off waivers by the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate the Texans were not happy with Foreman's work habits, so they let him go and the Colts quickly add the power runner. Foreman may work as the primary ball-carrier behind Marlon Mack. Nyheim Hines will work as the change-of-pace back for the Colts once again this year. Foreman would only have fantasy value if Mack gets banged up...provided he impresses his new team and beats out guys like Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams for the backup role.

  Colts | Andrew Luck confident about playing Week 1    Mon Aug 5, 02:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) told NBC Sports' Peter King he has no doubts about being ready to play in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.'I certainly believe I will (be ready). That's certainly the goal. At times I do worry about it. It can be frustrating. The arc of an injury, whether it's a big surgical one or something you're rehabbing through. But no, because I've improved. Maybe I'm not improving as fast as I want and missing things is no fun. It eats at you. But I do know at the end of the day if I'm getting the most out of myself, if I'm being the best I can that day, then that's what I need to do,' Luck said.

  Colts | Parris Campbell still sidelined    Sat Aug 3, 10:21 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell (hamstring) remained out of practice Saturday, Aug. 3.

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 | Jordan Wilkins missing time    Fri Aug 2, 09:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (undisclosed) missed his second straight practice Friday, Aug. 2.
