1:45 p.m. ET: Logan Thomas is indeed active and will play this afternoon against the Colts.

Game day Update: Thomas is expected to play on Sunday.

Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas looks like he could be back on the field this week. Thomas has been out of action since Week 4 with a calf injury. However, he did practice with the team all week, in a limited role, which is at least a good sign for Thomas and the team. He is officially listed as questionable on this week’s injury report.

The Commanders are on the road to play the Indianapolis Colts at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Fantasy football implications

Thomas hasn’t been especially productive in the four games he has played this season, totaling just 105 yards and a touchdown on 13 receptions in that span. But with Taylor Heinicke back under center for the injured Carson Wentz, Thomas could be more productive with a signal caller who targeted him more frequently in the past.

Without Thomas, the Commanders have leaned on John Bates, who hasn’t had more than 39 yards in a game. Washington has a solid group of wideouts and running backs to catch the ball, making it harder for their tight ends to get significant looks.
