Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Hilton was expected to return today. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief, Hakeem Nicks and Reggie Wayne would all see a significant bump in a nice matchup against Dallas. His absence would hurt Andrew Luck, but he’d still be a must-start given the matchup.

After the game it was revealed that the veteran has been dealing with torn triceps. While it's been suggested that Wayne rest until the playoffs and allow the younger guns to carry the load, the veteran said Friday the injury wasn't affecting his play.
"If I'm out there playing, I'm good," he said, per the Indy Star.
When Wayne suits up on Sunday it will mark his 209th game as an Indianapolis Colt, breaking Peyton Manning's franchise record. The receiver's streak of 82 straight games with at least three catches came to an end last week, but his consecutive games with at least one reception remains alive.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Wayne will likely play despite a torn triceps. He’s not an appealing play given his recent production. We prefer Donte Moncrief at this point.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano on how much HC Reggie Wayne has left:
“I know he’s got more. How much that is? I don’t know how much that is, but I know he’s got more. He’ll deliver. He’ll be back.”
Following the game on Sunday, Pagano on Colts postgame radio said that Wayne was playing through a “torn tri” that he suffered in the Cincinnati game earlier this season. On Monday, Pagano reiterated that Wayne is battling through nagging injuries.
Against Cleveland, Wayne had just one reception in eight targets and did drop a few balls he might normally catch if healthy. He’s averaged three receptions for 37 yards in the games since his elbow/tri injuries as T.Y. Hilton has really emerged. Wayne’ s presence within the Colts offense is still key and Pagano clearly feels that No. 87 will continue to make plays for this team. Sunday would mark the 209th career game for Wayne, breaking the Colts franchise record.

With Reggie Wayne losing a step, the Colts need Moncrief's playmaking ability as an alternative to T.Y. Hilton. The third-round rookie has the size and athleticism to become a star with Luck as his quarterback.
While it may have just become official this week, it's no surprise Moncrief is now the team's WR3. We had a news item on Saturday that said it remains to be seen if he passes Reggie Wayne for the WR2 role. The item said that Wayne is still a security blank for Luck, but there's no denying Moncrief's big-play ability. He's certainly worth a pickup, at least in deeper leagues, but owners should probably still consider him boom or bust at this point. However he's one big play away from giving owners very nice fantasy numbers.

Herron’s drive of five carries for 37 yards ended in a field goal for the Colts and offered another glimpse of what the team’s third running back could provide the offense.
Now, with Ahmad Bradshaw placed on injured reserve, those mop-up carries could become much more meaningful.
“It’s time for Boom Herron to step up, which everybody on the team has full confidence in,” Reggie Waynesays.
The longest extended look Colts fans have gotten of Herron was at this year’s Training Camp in Anderson. With Bradshaw and Trent Richardson dealing with injuries, Herron got plenty of first team work throughout camp and the preseason.
“He’s done it in practice. He did it in the preseason. When he’s gotten his chances in the games this year, he’s done a heck of a job,” Andrew Luck says of his “110 percent” confidence in Herron.
In the preseason, Herron was the team’s leading rusher (22 carries for 112 yards) and leading receiver (11 catches for 55 yards). The hope his Herron slides right in as a result of learning the offense during the preseason and camp with all the injuries. Richardson hasn't been all that impressive, so it seems possible Herron has a decent chance to put up fantasy numbers, perhaps especially in the passing game. He's certainly worth grabbing, at least in a little deeper PPR leagues.

“I told Coby numerous times during the game, ‘Great play. Great play.’ And even after the game I said, ‘You grew up tonight, man. You grew up. You had a great game.’ It was the Coby Fleener that we all see in practice show up in the game. A lot of people don’t understand his speed and his size and his height. He can be a mismatch. There’s no way he shouldn’t be listed in the elite group of tight ends,” Wayne said on his weekly radio show.
“There’s no going back from here. He’s growing up,” Wayne says of Fleener.
“We’ve seen this in Coby in spurts. But like I told him, ‘There’s no going back. There’s no going backwards. From here on out, you just set the standard. You just set the table so now everybody is going to expect you to perform this way every week. Coby is to the point now where everything should be going and we believe it is. He showed that the other night.”
Chuck Pagano took notice of what Fleener gave the Colts offense last Sunday.
“(Fleener) played big (Sunday). He played physical,” Pagano said on his weekly radio show. “He made two of the finest catches that I’ve seen a tight end make. We had another tight end that we were defending on the other side of the field that was pretty damn good but Coby went up and made some great plays, great catches. It’s good to see his production coming through. He’s more than capable and now he’s just got to keep it there.”
Dwayne Allen's injury was initially described as a high-ankle sprain, and although he has indicated that it's not serious, he has been unable to practice this week, so Fleener is a Sneaky Start in a solid matchup with the Jaguars. Fleener posted #13 TE numbers last season after Allen was lost for the year. We currently have him ranked at #4 in standard formats for Week 12.
