Michael Pittman removed from injury report for Week 3 matchup with Chiefs

We break down news that Michael Pittman, Jr. has a quad/hip injury. What it means for Week 3 and beyond.

Friday later update: Michael Pittman practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Friday late update: Head coach Frank Reich told reporters on Friday that Michael Pittman is “ready to go,” per Joel Erickson. He is needed both in real life and your fantasy teams.

Friday early update: Michael Pittman was practicing again on Friday, per Mike Chappell. His status on the injury report will be useful in navigating his fantasy status later today.

Thursday update: Pittman was officially limited for the second straight day. Right now there hasn’t been a lot of positive reporting on his status for this week, but the team is being tight-lipped about injuries. We’ll see what his injury designation is for Week 3 tomorrow.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman, Jr. is expected to practice today after sitting out last week against the Jaguars with a quad injury.

This news should take a massive weight off the Colts’ shoulders, as they’re attempting to come back from a 24-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They’re preparing to face one of the best teams in the league in the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy football implications

Last week, Ashton Dulin stepped up for the Colts and led them in receptions and receiving yards, taking in five for 79 yards. The offense was stunted by Matt Ryan’s three interceptions, but Dulin will likely continue to see targets alongside Pittman as the Colts take on the Chiefs in Week 3.

Pittman had nine receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Colts’ season opener, which ended in a tie with the Houston Texans.
