Latest Updates

 

Rookie Donte Moncrief starting in place of T.Y. Hilton


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:53 pm ET) Colts rookie wideout Donte Moncrief, not veteran Hakeem Nicks, will start in place of T.Y. Hilton in the game at Dallas, reports the Indianapolis Star. Hilton is inactive due to a hamstring injury.

Moncrief has 27 catches for 423 yards and three touchdowns, including a pair of 100-yard games since Week 8. He'll face a Dallas team that ranks 23rd in pass defense, allowing 250 yards per game.


Colts WR T.Y. Hilton inactive against Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:09 pm ET) Colts No. 1 receiver T.Y. Hilton, who was questionable with a hamstring injury, is inactive for Sunday's game at Dallas. Hilton missed practice all of last week. He leads the team with 82 grabs for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns.

With Hilton sidelined, wideouts Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks should get increased opportunities against a Dallas defense that ranks 21st against the pass, allowing 250 yards per game.

Indy is a 3- or 3.5-point underdog at Vegas sportsbooks.


Report: Reggie Wayne might play less in last two games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) With the Colts having locked up their division but unlikely to earn a first-round bye, receiver Reggie Wayne "might see less action" during the final two regular-season games, reports the Indianapolis Star. Wayne is playing with a torn triceps.

He played 52 snaps Week 15 after playing 63 the week before. If Wayne's snaps keep dropping, rookie Donte Moncrief and veteran Hakeem Nicks should see more playing time.

Moncrief played 37 snaps and Nicks 21 in last Sunday's win over Houston. The Colts visit Dallas on Sunday as 3-point underdogs.


Colts' Hakeem Nicks, Dwayne Allen reach paydirt vs. Texans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and tight end Dwayne Allen scored the team's two touchdowns in their 17-10 win over the Texans in Week 15.

After the Texans returned an interception for a touchdown in the first quarter, Nicks evened the score early in the second quarter, catching a pass of about 15 yards in between the hashmarks and working his way into the end zone for a 26-yard score. He caught both of his targets on the afternoon and finished with a total of 44 yards and the one score.

Allen put his team up 14-7 later in the second quarter on a three-yard score, boxing out his man in the end zone one play after Nicks set the team on the doorstep with an 18-yard reception. The tight end finished the day with two receptions on four targets for 16 yards and the one touchdown.

The Colts move forward to square off with the Cowboys in Week 16.


Colts get offensive contributions in Week 12 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Several Colts contributed offensively in the 23-3 win over the Jaguars. Among them, rookie wideout Donte Moncrief caught all four of his targets for 38 yards and had a 4-yard rush. Tight end Coby Fleener hauled in two of his four targets for 28 yards.

Receiver Hakeem Nicks had an 16-yard grab, and tight end Jack Doyle made two receptions for 8 yards. They'll all face the Redskins in Week 13.


Reggie Wayne leads Colts WRs with 91 yards in Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne paced his position group Sunday with five catches on nine targets for 91 yards in his team's 42-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 11.

Tight end Coby Fleener led the passing attack with 144 yards Sunday but Wayne was the clear second option, with the rest of the Colts offensive players combining for just 68 yards. Wayne racked up his most yards since delivering a 119-yard performance in Week 4. However, the two touchdowns thrown by Andrew Luck went to offensive tackle Anthony Costanzo and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. Costanzo's touchdown was his only catch of the day, while Nicks managed two catches for 15 yards.

T.Y. Hilton, the team's leading receiver, only managed to catch three of his seven targets for just 24 yards. His yardage was a new season low, and it was his second consecutive game catching just three passes. He now has 59 receptions for 961 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.

The Colts have lost two of their last three games heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Jaguars.


Hakeem Nicks not a huge factor against former team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks was clearly pumped to face his former team on Monday Night Football. But Nicks wasn't a huge part of the team's 40-24 win over the Giants.

He caught three of four targets for 44 yards. It was actually Nicks' best performance since Week 3, as he's fallen behind other weapons in the Colts' arsenal.

Nicks is on a bye Week 10.


Several Colts make minor mark on Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Colts wideout Hakeen Nicks gained a starting spot for Sunday in Pittsburgh due to the absence of Reggie Wayne and did little with it.

Nicks managed just one catch for 27 yards as one of several small offensive contributors. Also in that group was wideout Griff Whalen, who caught one pass for 23 yards, and running back Dan Herron, who chipped in with a reception for five yards while adding two yards on one carry. Tight end Coby Fleener also caught one for four yards.


Colts place only one injured on Week 8 inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Veteran wideout Reggie Wayne (elbow) is the lone injured inactive for the Colts on Sunday. Hakeem Nicks is set to start in his place.

The healthy scratches are cornerback Jalil Brown, offensive linemen Lance Louis and Khaled Holmes and defensive linemen Montori Hughes and Kelcy Quarles.


Colts WR Hakeem Nicks expected to see more targets Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) With Reggie Wayne ruled out with an elbow injury, Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to have an increased role on offense Sunday against Pittsburgh, according to ESPN. Nicks has gotten off to a slow start, with 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver. He was targeted only once and was held without a grab in Week 7 against Cincinnati.

"I look forward to every opportunity," Nicks said. "Each week I prepare accordingly, prepare like I’m going to play, just like I’m going to play this week. Just have to go out there and play within the offense and everything will be good."

Colts have confidence in Hakeem Nicks if Reggie Wayne is sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) If Reggie Wayne is unable to play Week 8 against the Steelers due to an elbow injury, Colts coach Chuck Pagano expressed complete confidence in veteran receiver Hakeem Nicks helping pick up the slack in Wayne's absence.

"He comes here every day with his hat on, lunch pail, ready to work," Pagano said about Nicks, per ESPN. "He’s a competitive guy. We have a ton of competitive guys in that locker room. They all want to contribute and they all want to make plays. He understands that. He’ll be ready no matter when his number is called. He knows his stuff; he practices hard, prepares hard."

Nicks has posted modest numbers in his first season with the Colts, totaling 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns in seven games.


Colts WR Hakeem Nicks does little in win over Texans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks wasn't much of a factor in a Week 6 victory over the Texans on Thursday.

Nicks caught a six-yard pass from Andrew Luck on the final drive of the first half and a 12-yard pass on the opening drive after halftime. He was targeted seven times but only came down with two grabs for 18 yards in a 33-28 victory. He has 141 receiving yards through six games but has been held out of the end zone since Week 3.

Nicks will look to get back on track Week 7 at home against Cincinnati.


Colts' Hakeem Nicks not doing much in Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks failed to make much of an impact in a Week 5 victory at home over the Ravens.

Nicks caught a short pass for a gain of 9 yards on the opening drive and caught a 16-yard pass in the fourth quarter for his longest gains of the day. He was targeted six times and finished with three catches for 29 yards, averaging 9.7 yards per grab in a 20-13 victory. He has 15 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns this season.

The Colts will face the Texans in Week 6.


Hakeem Nicks just misses TD catch Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks had a pretty disappointing game Sunday against the Titans despite Indianapolis putting up 41 points in a win. Nicks, who was targeted six times, finished with just two catches for 12 yards.

Nicks came close to recording his third touchdown of the season in the second quarter, but he could not finish off a 12-yard touchdown catch after getting his hands on the football.

The Colts are back in action Week 5 vs. Baltimore.


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Hakeem Nicks could have some value for Week 4


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks' Fantasy value for Week 4 against the Titans is likely to depend almost entirely on T.Y. Hilton's availability for Sunday's game.

Nicks caught four passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, but he did the majority of his damage following Hilton's exit from the game. Nicks had just one reception for 12 yards in the first half, hauled in three passes and his touchdown following halftime, when Hilton was no longer around.

Nicks ended up playing 49 percent of the team's snaps, compared to 46 percent for Hilton. The Colts do not use three receivers often, as evidenced by the fact that three different tight ends saw the field for at least 36 percent of the plays in the last two games. If Hilton's ankle injury heals enough for him to play, Nicks will have trouble finding the field, as he did in Week 2, when he plays just 40 percent of the team's snaps.

Nicks might be someone worth picking up on waivers Tuesday night, but he only really has upside if Hilton sits out. 


Hakeem Nicks, Coby Fleener play a big role Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts pass catcher Hakeem Nicks and Coby Fleener each had big games Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Nicks hauled in four balls for 50 yards and a score. Fleener had 49 yards and a touchdown as well. Fleener was Luck's most popular receiver during the game, picking up seven targets. Nicks had a big 29 yard gain, but scored on a 1 yard strike from Luck.

Both players will look for more Week 4 against the Titans. 


Colts should have most of their injured players Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Colts will have most of their injured players available Week 3 against the Jaguars.

T.Y. Hilton and Hakeem Nicks are both active for the contest. Nicks was the bigger question, as he entered the week deemed questionable. The team will also have Darius Butler, Ricky Jean Francois and Greg Toler


Two deemed out by Colts for Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Colts have ruled out linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) and defensive tackle Arthur Jones (ankle) for their Sunday game at Jacksonville.

Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (ankle), wideout Hakeem Nicks (illness) and guard Joe Reitz (ankle). Cornerback Darius Butler (neck), wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (groin), offensive lineman Khaled Holmes (ankle) and cornerback Greg Toler (ribs).


Hakeem Nicks a no-go Friday with illness


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks is sidelined from his second straight practice Friday with an illness. It remains to be seen if he plays in Week 3 against Jacksonville.

Nicks has been a disappointment since arriving in Indianapolis. He has just six catches for 32 yards in two games and managed just one reception for minus-4 yards Monday night against Philadelphia.


Hakeem Nicks misses practice due to illness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice Thursday due to an illness. The Colts are preparing to play the Jaguars Week 3.

Hakeem Nicks goes for negative yardage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks had a chance for a first-quarter touchdown Monday night, but he could not come down with a fade from Andrew Luck. Nicks ended up catching one of his three targets for minus-4 yards. On the reception, Nicks caught the ball behind the line and was swarmed by Eagles defenders.

Nicks will try to bounce back Week 3 at Jacksonville.


Hakeem Nicks ends scoring drought


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks found the end zone Week 1 for the first time since Dec. 9, 2012. Nicks' juggling 9-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter salvaged an otherwise disappointing night, as he finished with five grabs for 36 yards in the loss at Denver.

Nicks did secure all his targets. He had a chance for an earlier touchdown but was stopped by two Broncos inside the 1. Nicks, who did not score a touchdown last season with the Giants, plays the Eagles in Week 2 on Monday Night Football.

Hakeem Nicks not a starting option yet


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks started slowly this preseason but came on to catch eight of nine targets for 86 yards. The team plans to use their free-agent acquisition in all three-receiver sets and some two-receiver sets as well, according to Stampede Blue.

That said, Nicks isn't worth starting until his role crystallizes. Consider him a WR4 for Week 1 at Denver.

Hakeem Nicks looks like old self vs. former team


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks looked like his old self against his former club Saturday in exhibition play.

Nicks caught a short pass for no gain and was unable to convert a third down on the opening drive. On the second drive, he hauled in a 17-yard pass from Andrew Luck. A penalty also wiped out a 36-yard catch and run. He was limited to only four series with the first-team offense against the Giants. He caught all five passes thrown his way for 53 yards.
