Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 11. Hankerson will return this week, per HC Dan Quinn. It will put a dent in Jacob Tamme’s targets since Tamme has thrived with Hankerson out. For his part, Hankerson would be a WR4 type against the Colts.

The Giants are going to fill Victor Cruz’s roster spot with a familiar, if not recently productive, face.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports and confirmed by PFT, the Giants are bringing back wide receiver Hakeem Nicks to fill the spot created by Cruz going on season-ending injured reserve.

Nicks has had some scattered workouts, but the 27-year-old hasn’t been able to latch on anywhere after his 38-catch season with the Colts last year.

Fantasy Impact:

Nicks could end up at the team's WR3, but Dwayne Harris is coming off a big game in that role against the Pats, so there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of fantasy potential for Nicks right now.

Pagano: Andrew Luck can't play QB 'like a linebacker'

Indianapolis Star - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts returned to work Monday following their Week 10 bye, marking, in earnest, the beginning of a prolonged period without injured franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

But Luck was still a topic of discussion.

Coach Chuck Pagano finally addressed the elephant in the room: The fact that Luck, according to the Colts, was injured while scrambling in the open field versus the Denver Broncos last week. His reluctance to avoid contact — and his preference to take on defenders — could have contributed to his sustaining a lacerated kidney.

And, that, Pagano said, simply can't happen.

"We're going to talk every day until he figures it out and we figure it out as a team," Pagano said. "He knows full well that he can't do that. He can't put himself and this team in jeopardy. You love the grit, and you love the toughness and all that stuff. But playing the position like a linebacker? You can't."

Fantasy Impact:

Luck absorbed a direct shot to his midsection from Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan on the play on which the Colts said he was injured. It was a second-and-9 play, and Luck was well short of the first down, gaining just four yards. Yet he still barreled forward, choosing not to slide and take advantage of the protections afforded NFL quarterbacks. Luck owners probably love the bonus of few points worth of rushing yards, but not at the expense of longterm injuries. Luck often chooses not to slide feet first to give himself up.
