Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Allen may be able to make his return this week. It would obviously hurt the playing time and likely targets of Mr. Jack Doyle.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Smith apparently won’t play in Week 9. Nick Foles will get the start against the Jaguars, who are decent against the pass. Foles isn’t a bad streaming option after doing pretty well against the Colts (223 yards and two touchdowns on 22 attempts).

Colts RB Frank Gore (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. No worries with ol’ Frank.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Hilton’s health will be closely monitored this week. He injured his hamstring in Week 8 but returned to the game. He was “reluctant to commit” to playing in Week 9 per Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star. If he has to sit, Donte Moncrief would get a bump, while Phillip Dorsett and Chester Rogers would become decent dart throws.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring, foot) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Rogers may see starter’s snaps this week if T.Y. Hilton can’t play.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware failed second phase of concussion testing

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder said running back Spencer Ware, who left the Chiefs’ 30-14 win over the Colts on Sunday because of a concussion, never got out of the second phase of the concussion testing.

That portion includes a SCAT — or a sports concussion assessment test — that includes memory recall, balance testing, symptom questioning and eye testing and is administered via iPad.

“When we got to the SCAT part of it, he didn’t do well enough to be able to return to play,” Burkholder said.

Fantasy Impact:

If Ware can’t play Sunday against the Jaguars, the Chiefs could sign one or both of their practice squad backs — Darrin Reaves and Zac Brooks — or seek help on the free-agent wire.

Chiefs say QB Alex Smith doesn't have a concussion

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith didn’t return to Sunday’s victory over the Colts after being taken to be evaluated for a concussion in the third quarter of the game.

It was the second time that Smith was evaluated for a concussion during the game with the first coming in the first quarter and ending with Smith cleared to return to the game. On Monday, however, Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said that his failure to return a second time wasn’t because Smith has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Burkholder said, via Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, that Smith is asymptomatic and that he passed tests on both the sideline and the locker room after the blow to the head at the end of the run in the second half. Burkholder said that the protocol for evaluating Smith worked as it should and that the “only mistake” was him telling a team spokesman that Smith was out with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story pointed out, assuming no symptoms develop, that should eliminate concern about Smith’s ability to play against the Jaguars in Week 9.

Smith's head slammed against the ground as he was sliding on a scramble in the third quarter.

Fantasy Impact:

Smith actually left the game in the first half for a possible concussion but was cleared and returned to the game despite a cut on his ear.

Colts QB Andrew Luck will have his top-three WRs back this week

Saturday, October 29, 2016, 12:02pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Quarterback Andrew Luck will have his top three receivers for the first time since Week 2 because Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett are back to give T.Y. Hilton some help.

Moncrief’s return gives the Colts some size and also a possession receiver for Luck to turn to. Moncrief injured his shoulder in the first half of their game against Denver in Week 2.

“He is a heck of a player,” offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said. “He can catch the ball down the field, he is good in the short game. He is a big, strong guy that can make plays on top of guys even when he is covered.”

Fantasy Impact:

Luck threw for 353 yards with no interceptions against the Tennessee Titans without Moncrief and Dorsett. The quarterback could be even more effective with healthy group of receivers while facing a Kansas City team that only has eight sacks on the season.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder, ankle) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. No worries here.

Friday, October 28, 2016, 6:30pm

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 8. With Charles out, Spencer Ware is a great play against the Colts. Charcandrick West is even an interesting spot start since he’ll get the change-of-pace touches in the Kansas City backfield.

Friday, October 28, 2016, 6:30pm

Colts RB Frank Gore (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Gore will be fine to face the Chiefs.

Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) took full practice reps again Friday.
