Found November 02, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Indianapolis Colts are set to square off against the Houston Texans this Sunday night, and will look to push their record to 6-2 and create some distance between themselves and the Tennessee Titans within the AFC South. The Colts will be without cornerback Greg Toler, as he attempts to recover from a groin injury. Toler was withheld from practice all week, with the Colts finally making the decision to rule him out after Friday’s practice. This will be the first time in 189-consecutive games that the Colts will be without wide receiver Reggie Wayne, as the future Hall of Famer will miss the remainder of the 2013 season with a torn ACL. Darrius Heyward-Bey is pegged as the primary candidate to step in and fill Wayne’s void, but the receiver tweaked his hamstring in Wednesday’s practice, and has since been labeled as questionable against Houston. Here is the Colts’ final injury report courtesy of, with the parentheses denoting their level of participation in Friday’s practice.

Re-Examining the Trent Richardson Deal: The Irony

You remember where you were that day. No, I’m not talking about Brad Stevens’ sudden exit to coach professional basketball in a city where people have funny accents. I’m not talking about the Colts’ triumphant win over Peyton Manning and the undefeated Denver Broncos a few Sundays ago. Heck, I’m not even talking about the day the Indianapolis Indians won their most recent...

Indianapolis Colts: T.Y.’s time to shine

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about Darrius Heyward-Bey and Coby Fleener having to step up in Reggie Wayne’s absence. That they are the key to the Indianapolis Colts’ passing offense continuing to play at a high level. Hope to see a lot more of these from Hilton as the season progresses (Photo credit: I don’t disagree that they need to step up but the key to...

Darrius Heyward-Bey Expected To Play Sunday Night

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said that he expects Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) to play Sunday night against Houston.Fantasy Spin:Heyward-Bey sat out of Friday's practice after suffering the injury during Thursday's session. While his role is expected to increase following Reggie Wayne's season-ending knee injury, Heyward-Bey is not a reliable fantasy option this week.

Colts’ Darrius Heyward-Bey Battling Hamstring Injury

The Indianapolis Colts sit at 5-2 and are slated to take on a Houston Texans team that has lost five in-a-row this Sunday night. The Colts have already lost their offensive leader – veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne - for the year due to an ACL tear, and may now have to face Houston without another playmaker, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Heyward-Bey is managing a hamstring...

A Stray from the Norm: Colts Without Wayne or Harrison for First Time Since 1998

The Indianapolis Colts have been lucky – for 15-years that is. In a league where change runs rampant, the Colts have been a model of consistency. For the first time in almost 15-years, they will take the field without either Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison on the active roster. Dependable is more than just a word with these two legends, it is an action. Wayne played in 189-consecutive...

Fantasy Football: Who gets a bump in Indi?

Reggie Wayne is done for the year. Andrew Luck was 9 years old the last time that neither Wayne or Marvin Harrison was active for a Colts game. This is definitely a big blow to the team; but the Colts do have depth. I leave it up to you; our readers, to decide who is going to reap the rewards of Reggie Wayne’s ACL:Who gets a bump in Indi? With Reggie Wayne out for the season,...

Indianapolis Colts: Week 9 Preview

The Colts travel to Houston to take on the Texans, but will be without wide receiver Reggie Wayne for the first time since 2001. Wayne was lost for the season in the team’s week seven win over Denver, meaning quarterback Andrew Luck will be missing his most reliable target. Houston, for their part, won’t have much sympathy for the Colts, as they will be without star linebacker...

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans: 2013 Week 9 NFL Pick

Indianapolis Colts (5-2) at Houston Texans (2-5) You could definitely still argue the Texans are underrated and are better than their record. They are moving the chains at a 75% rate, as opposed to 72% for their opponents. That differential is 12th in the NFL. They have been killed by turnovers (-11), an inability to recover fumbles (37.5%), and a ridiculous amount of return touchdowns...

WHAT IF: The Colts Never Released Peyton Manning?

In the move of the decade, the Colts released their best player in team history; Peyton Manning.This is obviously old news, but it's worth looking into what would've happened if Jim Irsay & co. never made the league-wide altering move. Let's start from the beginning. Let me take you back to 2011, in a land where the Colts are 2-14 entering the offseason. "Suck...

Don't Overthink What You Already Know - Colts Are Elite

Indianapolis Colts (4-3) @ Houston Texans (1-6)Spread & Total: (-1) & (43)Play: Indianapolis Colts (-1)Say what you will about "trap games" and live in your world of pixies and glitter all you'd like - as for me, I'll stick with the facts and tell you plain and simple that making the line so low for the Indianapolis Colts this weekend is an absurdly laughable...

Preview of the Enemy: Indianapolis Colts

The 2013 Houston Texans season isn’t dead yet, but it’s on life support and the plug will be pulled if they lose to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. A loss to Indianapolis would put the Texans four games behind the Colts, five with the tiebreaker factored in, with just eight games remaining. They wouldn’t be mathematically eliminated, but realistically their playoff chances...

Colts’ Mathis draws attention of Texans’ offense

Case Keenum presents the Texans with a much more mobile quarterback than the recently benched Matt Schaub. But Indianapolis’ defense is led by 11-year veteran Robert Mathis, and his league-leading 11.5 sacks have already drawn the attention of the Texans’ offense. “Very much (worried),” coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday at Reliant Stadium. “He’s playing everywhere. If...
