Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Edelman landed hard on his shoulder, but stayed in the game against the Colts. The thigh injury probably won’t keep him out of a tough matchup against the Lions.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. This is a rest day for the veteran.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Allen probably isn’t going to play in Week 12, which means Coby Fleener can be dialed up as a top 5 option against the Jaguars.

Kelly: Brent Celek is playing better than Zach Ertz

On Wednesday, head coach Chip Kelly was asked why TE Zach Ertz isn't seeing the same time he was when the season started.

"Brent Celek is doing a hell of a job," Kelly said. "It would be an injustice to tell Brent he has to sit because we want to put someone else in the game."

"He is an outstanding blocker," Kelly said of Celek. "He might be the best blocking tight end in the league. He is a sure handed receiver. You saw against Carolina he had over 100 yards receiving...It doesn't have to do with Zach, it has to do with how well Brent is playing."

Fantasy Impact:

Ertz has played 35 percent or fewer snaps in two of the last three weeks. He's the #15 TE on a per game basis, behind Heath Miller, Owen Daniels and Coby Fleener. This hasn't turned out to be the breakout season that most were expecting.

Ahmad Bradshaw officially placed on IR

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Colts Tuesday placed running back Ahmad Bradshaw on season-ending injured reserve with a fractured left leg.

Fantasy Impact:

The team was hoping to avoid losing Bradshaw for the season since there is plenty of football to play, especially if the team makes it to the playoffs. However, the Colts will now move on with Trent Richardson and Dan Herron in the backfield.

Former Cleveland Browns Pro Bowler Josh Cribbs is signing a contract with the Indianapolis Colts today, Northeast Ohio Media Group has confirmed.

Cribbs, a former quarterback at Kent State, played for Cleveland from 2005 through 2012. He played for the New York Jets in 2013. Cribbs was a fan favorite during his time as a Brown, and has returned 11 kicks for touchdowns during his career: three punts and eight kickoffs.

Fantasy Impact:

Now that Dan Herron is looking like the team's RB2, the Colts probably don't want to risk Herron doing any more returning. Griff Whalen has been unimpressive thus far in that department.

Colts: Ahmad Bradshaw has fractured fibula

Colts HC Chuck Pagano announced on Monday that RB Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a fractured fibula in Sunday night’s loss to the Patriots, putting his 2014 season in jeopardy

“He’s been seen by our doctors, our specialists and he’s going to see a couple more. I’ll have more information in the coming days,” Pagano said on Monday afternoon.

“It kills you because he’s a warrior. He loves football. He loves his teammates. He loves the (Horseshoe). He loves competing….We are going to miss his energy, his passion, everything he brings to the table.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Colts are still getting more opinions on Bradshaw. With a lot of football left to play, any hope of Bradshaw returning would keep him off IR, especially for the NFL playoffs. But for the fantasy football season, it's not looking good for owners. Starting running back Trent Richardson will continue to see the brunt of the backfield workload with Dan Herron sidling into the “Next Man Up” role, the story said.

Dwayne Allen 'hopeful' he'll play Week 12

Colts TE Dwayne Allen 'hopeful' he'll play vs. Jacksonville in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact:

Chappell referred to the injury as a 'minor ankle injury' in his tweet so it appears to be good news for Allen owners. Indy plays in the early afternoon game so owners will have plenty of time to come up with a backup plan if Allen does miss the game. Coby Fleener would likely see an increased workload should Allen not play.

Dwayne Allen has high ankle sprain

TE Dwayne Allen suffered what Colts believe to be a high ankle sprain, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen is very likely to miss at least some time, depending on the severity. Coby Fleener will likely inherit more targets if Allen misses any time. Fleener caught seven balls for 144 yards against the Pats on Sunday night.

Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) in walking boot

ESPN - [Full Article]

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was on crutches with a boot on his left foot when he departed the locker room after the game. He suffered what the Colts called a lower leg injury in the second half.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Bradshaw, who wore sunglasses, possibly to hide his frustration, will have an MRI Monday.

“To see a brother go down, especially one I’m around all day, every day, is real tough,” fellow running back Trent Richardson said. “That’s a brother, and it’s heartbreaking to see a guy down like that. We’re going to see what they say [Monday], but at the end of the day, we have his back. Whenever he gets ready to come back, if he does this year or next year, whenever it is, there’s going to be open doors for him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Other reports Monday morning are painting this to be a bad picture, as some speculate it's a broken ankle. Certainly Richardson's comment would seem to agree it's at least going to be a longer-term injury. We'll update his situation later Monday when we find out more. Dan Herron is next up on the depth chart.

Giants beat writer Dan Graziano answered a question about WR Corey Washington:

"I think it's entirely possible that the Giants will find more opportunities to work undrafted rookie wide receiver Corey Washington into the offense more going forward. What I don't think is that they'll force it just because he caught a garbage-time touchdown Monday that was reminiscent of the preseason performances that got him on the team. Nor do I think they'll force it just because Preston Parker dropped a bunch of passes Monday. I think, when it comes to Washington, that the Giants will do what's best for Washington, and add more to his workload as they become convinced he can handle it."

Fantasy Impact:

Washington had a standout preseason that gave the Giants little choice but to keep him. For the most part he's been quiet, outside of his TD on Monday night in the loss to the Colts. It seems like the team may slowly start to use him going forward but he's probably a bit off from being a fantasy option until we start to see him more involved.
