Colts WR T.Y. Hilton tweaked his hamstring against the Texans on Sunday, but didn’t seem to miss much time if any.

His production on the other hand did take a marked plunge after a strong start to the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton didn't shed anymore info on the injury other than he was quoted as saying he's scheduled for an MRI. It's perhaps at least a little good news at this point in the week that he remained in the game but could be a reason for a drop in fantasy production.

Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was injured on a scramble and was carted off the field with a boot on his left leg in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Colts. His leg is broken, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, per a team source. His season is over.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie Tom Savage entered the game and completed his first NFL pass to DeAndre Hopkins after avoiding the pressure. But on the second-to-last play of the game, Savage took a hit to his lower leg. Rapoport later add, per a team source, that the QB will have an MRI on Monday. The fourth-round pick would take over a Texans offense that has already lost Ryan Mallett this season. Thaddeus Lewis is the next QB up on the depth chart

Colts WR Reggie Wayne had one of the worst games of his career last week, catching just one pass for five yards and dropping three balls.

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.

Fantasy Impact:

With Wayne banged up, popular wire pickup Donte Moncrief could see a little more work. However it sounds like Wayne is going to play as a win would clinch the division for the Colts, according to the story.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Foster appears to be all systems go for a good matchup against the Colts. He has averaged 123 rushing yards and 1.0 TD in his last three games against Indianapolis.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (not injury related, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 15. Hilton will be fine for a great matchup against Houston. In his last five games against the Texans, Hilton has averaged 6.2-122-1.2. That’s 25.6 fantasy points in PPR formats.

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.

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 6:32pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (not injury related) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Hilton should be fine for a great matchup against Houston. In his last five games against the Texans, Hilton has averaged 6.2-122-1.2. That’s 25.6 fantasy points in PPR formats.

Colts CB Vontae Davis may play in Week 15

ESPN - [Full Article]

Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis appears to be heading back into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

Davis practiced Wednesday, albeit with a non-contact red jersey, because he's still going through the NFL's concussion protocol. He missed last weekend's game against the Cleveland Browns because he still hadn't been cleared from the concussion suffered against the Washington Redskins on Nov. 30. The plan, according to coach Chuck Pagano, is for Davis to practice again Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

This is important because it will impact the Houston receivers. Davis covered Andre Johnson for most of the previous matchup, but that was before Hopkins established himself as the Texans' top receiver. Johnson is recovering from his own concussion and is iffy for Sunday. if he's out, Davis will very likely spend a lot of time covering Hopkins.

Reggie Wayne playing with torn tricep

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Colts running back Trent Richardson has been a major disappointment since he was traded early last season from Cleveland to Indianapolis. But Richardson says he’s still the same player who was once viewed as an elite running back prospect.

Richardson, who is preparing to face his former team on Sunday, says he has the confidence to brush off the people who point out that he’s come up short in Indianapolis. That confidence stems from his own belief that he’s still the same guy who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

“When I hear people talk down about me, I just laugh at them and I say, ‘God bless you,’” Richardson said. “I want everybody to see and know that I’m still that running back, I’m still that guy that Cleveland chose with the third pick. A lot of people are saying Trent is a mistake and he was bad and he was that, but I’m telling you folks now, watch these next four weeks and see what happens.”

Fantasy Impact:

Whether it's true or not, it seems like Dan Herron has passed Richardson after just one week, and despite fumbling. As the story points out, through Richardson's first 27 games as a Colt, he has averaged 3.05 yards a carry and 33.5 yards a game.

Colts WR Josh Cribbs (knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. Hilton will be good to go for Sunday.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Wayne should be fine to face the Browns. We’re not expecting much given his recent output.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 14. Allen will be back this week, and his return will put a big dent in Coby Fleener’s fantasy value. Allen was the #7 TE prior to his injury, so he should return to TE1 status in Week 14.

Pettine: 'There's a chance' RB Terrance West is inactive vs. Colts

Browns HC Mike Pettine said "there's a chance" Terrance West won't be active versus the Colts because of fumbling, but he's responded well this week.

Fantasy Impact:

We doubt he's inactive given Isaiah Crowell's questionable tag. Pettine did say that West responded well this week, so we believe he'll suit up against the Colts.
