The Indianapolis Colts have parted ways with Da'Rick Rogers.

Coach Chuck Pagano announced Monday that the team has released the second-year wide receiver for conduct detrimental to the team.

Pagano told reporters that it would be "inappropriate to speak further" on the matter, per Mike Chappell of RTV6.

Rogers was arrested early Monday morning for operating a vehicle while intoxicated on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Rogers' BAC was between 0.08 and 0.14, according to police.

Through three games in this young season Colts RB Trent Richardson is in a comfort zone that allows him to play freely and have fun again, something he hasn’t experienced in a few years.

After averaging only 2.9 yards a carry last season, Richardson has increased his average to 3.8 yards this season while basically sharing the backfield load with Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson had long runs of 15 and 27 yards in each of the past two games.

Too often Richardson was met by multiple defenders behind the line of scrimmage and went down on initial contact last season. He has improved on that. Ninety of his 156 yards rushing have come after initial contact.

And when teams have put eight players in the box? Richardson has rushed for 45 yards on 11 attempts for a 4.1 average when that has happened this season.

Richardson credits the improved offensive line and playing with Bradshaw, who is averaging 6.0 yards a carry.

Jake Locker's MRI negative, questionable Week 4

The MRI on Titans QB Jake Locker didn't show any structural damage. Has a wrist strain. Locker still sore and will be monitored during week.

Fantasy Impact:

Charlie Whitehurst would get the start for Locker if he can't go against the Colts Week 4, but it sounds like the team will evaluate him more as the week goes on. The Tennessee offense has really struggled but may not have a choice but to put up points if they plan to knock off the Colts who are coming off a blowout win over the Jags.

Chuck Pagano: T.Y. Hilton's ankle 'not that bad'

Colts coach Chuck Pagano on the injury to WR T.Y. Hilton: “He came in and the ankle is not that bad. He may be a little bit limited Wednesday.”

Fantasy Impact:

His status is looking pretty good for Week 4 but it's still something to monitor. As the story points out, Hilton’s importance to the Colts offense speaks for itself. His unique ability to stretch the field is a threat that opposing defensive coordinators have to take into account each and every week. It doesn’t appear Hilton will miss much practice time. The piece pointed out that WR Donte Moncrief did emerge on Sunday indicating that the Colts have some quality depth at receiver.

Jags QB Blake Bortles named the starter

Being outscored by 78 points pointed out the obvious for the Jacksonville Jaguars: A change at quarterback was needed.

After losing 34-17 and 41-10 in Weeks 1 and 2, and facing a 30-0 halftime deficit in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, the Jaguars finally made the decision to bench Chad Henne and make the move to first-round pick Blake Bortles.

It's also time for Bortles to take over the starting gig from here on out. Head coach Gus Bradley said after the game that despite the rookie's up-and-down game, he had seen enough from Bortles (14-of-24 passing, 223 yards, two TDs, two INTs) to announce that he'd be starting next week against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact:

It was only a matter of time... Bortles sparked the offense a bit after the change and at least put up nice fantasy numbers in mop-up time of a blowout loss to the Colts. Bortles can now grow with what is a very young group of WRs like Marquis Lee, Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Cecil Shots. He'll likely have a lot of chances to throw the ball a lot with a running game that can't seem to get going. He'll at least have QB2 value going forward.
