Colts beat writer Phillip B. Wilson on RB Joseph Addai: "Because the Colts shipped RB Darren Evans back to practice squad means they at least think Addai could be an emergency third back. I don’t think they go into the game with just two healthy RBs. While Addai was a full go in practice all week, he has said the right hammy is still sore. The hunch is he dresses, but I tend to doubt a full workload, if much. Expected to play."
The reason Addai's status is important is how it impacts Donald Brown, who headed into the Colts' bye as the team's RB1. The matchup against the Panthers is terrific, so whoever gets the bulk of the touches has a chance to post a solid fantasy line. The Colts play at 1:00 PM ET.
