MRI confirms Reggie Wayne tore ACL
Monday, October 21, 2013, 11:17am
It's a huge loss for the Colts, who will have to go with T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey as their two starting WRs. LaVon Brazill is next up on the depth chart, but this could leave the aggressive Colts, who appear to be all-in this season, in the market for a WR before the trade deadline. The team has a bye this week to try and get the situation straightened out. At the very least, look for them to bring in a free agent.

More hamstring problems for Arian Foster
Sunday, October 20, 2013, 8:39pm
Foster left the game after just four carries for 11 yards. He went to the locker room and initially was deemed questionable to return. Foster returned to the sideline soon thereafter without his uniform on and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.
He's considered day-to-day at this point. The good news is the Texans have a bye in Week 8 to help Foster get healthy for the rest of the season. Foster commented after the game that he didn't think it was too severe, but we likely won't know a whole lot more because of the bye week. Ben Tate would carry the load if Foster can't go in Week 9 against the Colts. If he's on your wire, he's a must-add.

MNF Injury Report - Mathews PROBABLE
Saturday, October 12, 2013, 5:35pm
S LaRon Landry (ankle), LB Bjoern Werner (foot)
LB Erik Walden (elbow)
RB Stanley Havili (ankle), DT Ricky Jean Francois (groin)
G Chad Rinehart (toe)
LB Donald Butler (groin), T D.J. Fluker (calf), LB Jarret Johnson (hamstring), CB Richard Marshall (groin)
G Jeromey Clary (collarbone), T King Dunlap (concussion), RB Ryan Mathews (concussion), G Rich Ohrnberger (groin), CB Johnny Patrick (chest), LB Manti Te'o (foot), CB Shareece Wright (hamstring)
Mathews is listed as probable despite suffering a concussion last week. In both standard and PPR rankings, though, we have Danny Woodhead as a much better play, and as the RB trending upward in the Charger backfield as of late. Mathews is ranked as an RB4 in what's considered a tough matchup against the Colts.
Less optimism that Rob Gronkowski will play
Friday, October 11, 2013, 10:16am
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, recovering after a series of surgeries on his fractured forearm and ailing back, still has not been cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews, according to ESPN and media reports. Moreover, there was less optimism Friday that he will play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints than there was earlier in the week.
Andrews is serving as an independent physician charged by the team and player with determining whether Gronkowski is cleared to play. Andrews is considered the most accomplished orthopedic surgeon in the world, but he didn't operate on Gronkowski.
Gronkowski also still has not been cleared by Dr. Jesse Jupiter, who performed the latest forearm surgery on Gronkowski, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Unless there is significant movement by Saturday, owners should assume that Gronk won't play against the Saints on Sunday. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff complicates matters. Colts TE Coby Fleener and Redskins TE Jordan Reed would be a good Plan Bs for owners who want to wait to see if Gronk is inactive. Titans TE Delanie Walker and Seahawks TE Luke Wilson (if Zach Miller is out) also play late on Sunday.
