Colts QB Andrew Luck likely out another three weeks

Stephen Holder - [Full Article]

IndyStar.com Colts beat writer Stephen Holder believes franchise quarterback Andrew Luck is still three weeks away from playing, at the very least.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck has already been ruled out for Week 5, and Holder doesn't anticipate he plays next week versus the Titans either. In leagues that start only one quarterback, Luck should remain on your I.R. slot or on waivers. If you play in 2QB or Superflex leagues, now might be the time to consider making a move for Luck, if he's available. Either way, the Colts quarterback isn't fantasy relevant at the moment.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It’s a good indicator for his availability in Week 5.

Colts WR Chester Rogers (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday. Mack’s return will negatively impact Frank Gore’s fantasy outlook.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Luck’s return is a good sign that he’ll return within the month. He’s out for Week 5, however.

Colts QB Andrew Luck expected to practice this week

CBS Indy - [Full Article]

This is the week Andrew Luck returns to the practice field, albeit it in a limited role.

That’s the word from Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard.

“We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week,’’ he said during the team’s Monday night radio show. “We’ll see how much he gets.

“But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we’ll get him back on the field.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Luck hasn’t practiced with his teammates since undergoing January surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. The team has been optimistic he would return before now, but he's been working with the rehab staff since being taken off the physically unable to perform list (PUP) Sept. 2.

Fantasy Impact:

Doyle's status for Week 5 is now up in the air and will depend if he can be cleared. Williams, Swoope and Daniels are next up on the depth chart. Williams had a 32-yard catch against the Seahawks. He's only had three catches in four weeks of action.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson has fractured leg

Monday, October 2, 2017, 1:46pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Seattle running back Chris Carson suffered a fracture in his lower left leg when he was pinned in a pile in the fourth quarter of the Seahawks' win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Speaking on his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Monday, coach Pete Carroll said the fracture was discovered just below Carson's knee.

Related players: Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll said the initial concern was about Carson's ankle and initial examinations didn't show a fracture there but additional tests revealed the extent of the injury. Other outlets add that Carson also has a high ankle sprain. Carroll said Carson will be out for a while. Lacy and Rawls should split the workload with Carson out of action for a while.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson has 'significant' ankle injury

Monday, October 2, 2017, 8:33am

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks rookie running back Chris Carson could be sidelined for an extended period of time after suffering what coach Pete Carroll called “a significant’’ ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 46-18 win over the Colts.

Related players: Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll added that he didn't want to speculate on whether or not Carson needs surgery on the ankle or not. More tests are being done. Looks like Lacy and Rawls will be popular pickups on the wire this week. However, it remains to be seen who takes on the lead role. Rawls was a healthy scratch in Week 4 while Lacy wasn't much of a factor the first three weeks.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 4. Luck needs to practice for two weeks or so before returning to game action. He’s supposedly targeting Week 6 for his return.

Friday, September 29, 2017, 6:52pm

Colts TE Jack Doyle (foot) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Doyle was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go for a tough matchup in Seattle.
