Colts Inactives
Chris Carter LB Inactive
Jerrell Freeman ILB Inactive
Jonotthan Harrison C Inactive
Khaled Holmes C Inactive
Dion Lewis RB Inactive
Joe Reitz G Inactive
Da'Rick Rogers WR Inactive

Fantasy Impact:

Ahmad Bradshaw and Reggie Wayne are both active for MNF. Bradshaw will likely split work with Trent Richards but should be involved in the passing game. Both missed time this week for non-injury related reasons but are good to go against the Eagles.

Eagles
OUT
WR Josh Huff (shoulder), T Matt Tobin (ankle)

PROBABLE
RB Chris Polk (hamstring), WR Brad Smith (groin), CB Jaylen Watkins (hamstring)

Colts
OUT
LB Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), G Joe Reitz (ankle)

QUESTIONABLE
DT Josh Chapman (ankle), C Khaled Holmes (ankle), DT Arthur Jones (shoulder)

PROBABLE
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (not injury related), S Sergio Brown (shoulder), CB Gregory Toler (rib), WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related)

Fantasy Impact:

For the Eagles, Chris Polk is probable and could steal some carries from both LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, but probably nothing too significant.

For the Colts, Ahmad Bradshaw and Reggie Wayne appear as probable ( both not injury related) and practiced fully on Friday and Saturday. Bradshaw is expected to split carries with Trent Richardson and Wayne has a great matchup against the Eagles secondary.

Reggie Wayne makes his return

Reggie Wayne was back.

The Indianapolis Colts veteran receiver didn’t have any catches -- the two he made were taken away because of penalties -- but he was back on the field for the first time in 10 months. That’s all that matter Saturday night against the New Orleans Saints.

“It was good to catch the football and get a real live game under my belt,” Wayne said. “There’s no way you can simulate that. That’s what I said last week. It was an opportunity for me to go out there, and there was some real live bullets flying at me so it was good. One down.”

Fantasy Impact:

Wayne, who tore his ACL in Week 7 last season, and wasn't sure he was going to get playing time in the preseason. He's looked good all through camp and it looks like he passed his final test before the regular season. Wayne is shaping up to be a nice, middle-round option in fantasy drafts. Recovering from an ACL injury could mean a slow start but Wayne is poised for a big workload again in the Colts offense.

It’s only natural for receivers like Da'Rick Rogers or Griff Whalen to look over his shoulder and wonder how the other player at that position is doing.

The Indianapolis Colts are set (barring any kind of injury) with Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief as their top four receivers.

That leaves Rogers and Whalen and the remaining receivers on the roster competing for one or two spots on the roster at that position.

Colts not sure Reggie Wayne will play in preseason

One of the biggest question marks still remaining with the Indianapolis Colts is: How will receiver Reggie Wayne look when he plays in a game?

The other question is: When will Wayne play in a game? There’s no answer to either one of those questions yet.

Wayne has said a number of times during training camp that he wants the first tackle on his surgically repaired knee to be in a preseason game. With that said, you have to believe Wayne will play in Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Saints because the starters are expected to get extensive playing time in the first half.

“There’s a possibility,” coach Chuck Pagano said when asked if Wayne will play against the Saints. “We’re managing that thing and keeping a close eye on him. From a physical standpoint, make sure there’s not too much wear and tear on that knee early on and coming back and all those things. We’re going to monitor him this week and see how he goes. If things go according to plan, there’s a possibility there, but again, we’ll make sure he’s ready for action.”

Fantasy Impact:

Wayne has looked good in camp according to reports but the Colts just may not want to risk him getting hurt. Still, it seems like Wayne would feel better seeing action in the preseason rather than jumping right into the regular season...

Colts WR Hakeem Nicks, whose first August had fallen somewhere in the gulf that resides between “blah” and “meh,” caught plenty of attention on Saturday night with a five-catch, 53-yard performance in limited duty against his former team, the Giants. Now, Nicks is catching praise along with those passes.

It would have played out as six catches for 86 yards for Nicks, but a 36-yard gain was wiped off the board due to Nicks giving a wave to cornerback Trumaine McBride during the play.

Fantasy Impact:

Nicks was not impressive in camp to this point but it looks like things are picking up for the veteran. Earlier in camp, we learned from Colt beat writers that Nicks would be the team's WR3 and when he came in Reggie Wayne would move to the slot with T.Y. Hilton and Nicks on the outside. For now, his fantasy value is still a bit limited.

The Colts wide receiving corp may be the deepest position on the roster, and T.Y. Hilton was not shy Monday when asked how good he thinks it is with Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks.

“We have three number one wideouts,” Hilton said after practice.

Asked to clarify if he views himself as a number one wide receiver, Hilton replied, “Without a doubt. All you have to do is turn on the film and watch me play.”

That’s the kind of confidence that comes with being the most productive receiver from his 2012 NFL Draft class, despite being selected in the 3rd round out of FIU. In two seasons, Hilton has amassed 132 receptions, 1,944 yards, and 12 touchdowns. Nobody from the 2012 class has more receiving yards and touchdowns.
