Stephen Holder, Twitter - [Full Article]

Colts WR Reggie Wayne has been ruled out of Week 8's game against the Steelers with an elbow injury. RB Trent Richardson is questionable after missing practice all week with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Colts play in the late round of games on Sunday, so it will be tough to capitalize on Richardson's absence. Bradshaw certainly gets a bump while Dan Herron could see 8-12 carries if Richardson is sidelined. As for the receiving corps, Donte Moncrief played a bit more than Hakeem Nicks in Week 7, though Nicks has out-snapped Moncrief 277 to 96 on the season and 35 to 12 as recently as Week 6. Moncrief has offered a better FP/snap, per our Player Snap App. We'll keep our ear to the ground and try to determine which player would be the better desperation start in Week 8. Stay tuned.
