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.

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.

Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (other) did not practice Wednesday. Bradshaw is probably just getting a veteran’s day off after a big performance on Monday night against the Eagles.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 6:15pm

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) did not practice Wednesday. Gerhart should be fine to face the Colts, though we don’t trust him in the lineup until the Jacksonville O-line shows some signs of life.

Colts Inactives
Chris Carter LB Inactive
Jerrell Freeman ILB Inactive
Jonotthan Harrison C Inactive
Khaled Holmes C Inactive
Dion Lewis RB Inactive
Joe Reitz G Inactive
Da'Rick Rogers WR Inactive

Fantasy Impact:

Ahmad Bradshaw and Reggie Wayne are both active for MNF. Bradshaw will likely split work with Trent Richards but should be involved in the passing game. Both missed time this week for non-injury related reasons but are good to go against the Eagles.

Jags to stick with Chad Henne at QB

Monday, September 15, 2014, 2:12pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been outscored 75-10 since jumping out to a surprising 17-0 halftime lead at Philadelphia in the season opener.

Although the offense has ground to a halt, coach Gus Bradley said Monday, via The Florida Times-Union, Chad Henne will remain the starting quarterback for this week's game versus the Indianapolis Colts.

"There's going to be some changes," Bradley added, per the team's official Twitter feed. "If you're asking solely on the quarterback, that hasn't come up. ... Right now, Chad Henne's our starter."

Bradley told reporters that Henne has played well, but it's been a challenge to grade his performance with 14 sacks through two games.

Fantasy Impact:

It seems like it's only a matter of time before the team turns to Blake Bortles at QB - whether Henne is to blame for 10 points in the last game and a half or not. WR Allen Hurns is a question mark as is WR Cecil Shorts so the team could be looking at Marquis Lee and Allen Robinson starting this week. And the line hasn't opened many holes for RB Toby Gerhart so it's an offense to stay away from in terms of fantasy football.
