Colts receiver Austin Collie (concussion) was held out of practice Thursday after fully participating Wednesday, according to Adam Caplan of thesidelineview.com.Fantasy Spin:Collie has been cleared for contact, so it's unclear if this was a precautionary measure or if Collie wasn't really a full go Wednesday. You'll recall that Collie was inactive for Week 1 after Colts coach Chuck Pagano had deemed him a "full-go."

The Vikings have a lot of new parts, but they didn’t overhaul their roster nearly as much as the Indianapolis Colts, their opponent Sunday. See just how much has changed with the Colts in less than one year.

The Vikings ended up in a pseudo-shootout with the Jaguars of all teams, a group that couldn’t get out of their own way offensively a year ago. Christian Ponder...
