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

Yahoo Sports - [Full Article]

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.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano didn’t think injury to T.Y. Hilton (ankle) was “too severe” this afternoon.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton didn't return to the game and perhaps the hope is they really didn't need his services any more in what was a blowout victory. We'll continue to update you during the week.

Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Bradshaw is ready to go for a nice matchup with the Jaguars.

Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:09pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 3. Hilton should be fine for a nice matchup against the Jaguars, but he’s been better at home than he’s been on the road.

Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:09pm

Colts WR Hakeem Nicks (illness, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 3. Nicks has some sort of illness, so his status is up in the air. Donte Moncrief would get a bump if Nicks can’t play.

Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:09pm

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 3. Shorts is likely to start against the Colts. He’s not a dependable option given the dumpster fire that is the Jacksonville offense.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Wayne is ready for a nice matchup against the Jaguars.

Colts Beat: Trent Richardson will continue to start to justify 2013 trade

Friday, September 19, 2014, 10:40am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Colts beat writer Mike Wells: Not starting Trent Richardson would be admitting that the trade with Cleveland was a complete bust. Richardson will continue to be the starter, but Ahmad Bradshaw will get his fair amount of carries with his load continuing to increase if Richardson can’t hold onto the ball. Richardson was going to be one of the most talked-about players in the Philly game if the Colts had won because he had his best rushing game (79 yards) since coming to Indianapolis in September 2013. Richardson was talked about a lot after the game, but not in a good way. The Colts recovered his first fumble, but his second one led to an Eagles touchdown and played a significant factor in why they lost the game.

Fantasy Impact:

For Ahmad Bradshaw owners, it doesn't matter much if Richardson is the starter in name only. It just means that Richardson will get the first chance to shine, which he rarely does. Week 3 could be the exception, with a tasty matchup against the Jaguars.
