Chuck Pagano expects to coach Colts in 2017

The NFL's annual wave of firings has -- so far -- spared anyone of note in Indianapolis. Colts coach Chuck Pagano doesn't expect that to change.

"No," Pagano said when asked Monday if there was any doubt about returning for next season.

"This is just based on your confidence?" asked a reporter.

"I just look at things and it's always half full," Pagano said. "And I don't have any reason to believe why I wouldn't be."

Fantasy Impact:

Still, Pagano confirmed that he has yet to meet with team owner Jim Irsay, who told NFL.com last month that it would be "unlikely for any changes to occur," with the caveat that he still planned to "sit down and thoroughly vet the season." The Colts haven't made the playoffs the last two season.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist, right shoulder) took full practice reps all week. Bortles will be out there in a nice matchup with the Colts.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Luck should be fine to play in the Colts’ meaningless finale against the Jaguars.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Colts RB Frank Gore (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Gore is 37 yards short of a 1,000-yard season.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hip, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. The Jaguars haven’t shown any sign that they’re shutting Lee down for the season, so he should be out there against the Colts.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17. With Moncrief out, Chester Rogers should see an increased role. He has averaged 67% of the snaps with Moncrief sidelined, but is only averaging 30.5 yards receiving in six Moncrief-less games.

Jags Beat: Denard Robinson could be team's RB1 Week 17

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson says he should be able to play on Sunday against Indianapolis.

That’s a heap of good news for the Jaguars, who can’t seem to keep running backs healthy this season.

The team put T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on injured reserve on Monday. Chris Ivory has missed four games because of various injuries and he might not be able to play this week against the Colts because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Things are much better if Robinson is able to play after missing three games because of an ankle injury. If Robinson would miss Week 17, it means the Jaguars would have to rely on second-year player Corey Grant, first-year player Bronson Hill, and newly signed Daryl Richardson, who has 169 carries in his career but only two since 2013.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief injures shoulder in Week 16

Colts WR Donte Moncrief saw his frustrating injury season continue on Saturday, as he left the Colts' game against the Raiders in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.

Related players: Phillip Dorsett

Fantasy Impact:

The good news is he score a TD for fantasy owners before leaving, but the bad news is he didn't return to the game. Phillip Dorsett, Chester Rogers and Devin Street are up next on the depth chart if Moncrief would miss Week 17.

Raiders QB Derek Carr suffers broken fibula

Just when it seemed the Oakland Raiders were gaining momentum for a Super Bowl run, they lost their MVP candidate and team leader to a season-ending injury.

Derek Carr suffered a broken fibula in the fourth quarter of Oakland's win over the Colts on Saturday. Coach Jack Del Rio said Carr will likely undergo surgery on Sunday and is out indefinitely.

Related players: Matt McGloin

Fantasy Impact:

Carr later tweeted Saturday night, "I will bounce back and be on my feet in no time! Thank you for all of the love that you Raider Nation showed me in that stadium today. I will be back. This is a team sport! So everything WE want is still out there for us!" It's still a crushing blow for fantasy owners playing in Week 17, and obviously for the Raiders who were poised to make a Super Bowl run. Matt McGloin will take over with a week to prepare before the playoffs begin. Connor Cook is the team's QB3.
