Analysis:

  • Biggest move on this weeks depth chart is at wide receiver. Rookie Michael Pittman Jr has been sent to injured reserve. Pittman injured his leg against the Vikings and end up being diagnosed with compartment leg syndrome. Pittman needed surgery to deal with the injury and ended up on injured reserve.
  • Replacing Pittman in the starting line up at wide receiver is third year receiver Daurice Fountain. Fountain didn’t make the Colts initial 53 man roster after training camp but was quickly signed to the teams practice squad and was elevated to the active roster in mid September.
  • Another new face on the Colts depth chart this week is tight end Trey Burton. Burton who was placed on injured reserve after training camp when he strained his calf. Burton was activated from injured reserve before the Bears game. He is listed as the back up tight end behind Jack Doyle.
