OL - IND - IR
This Week Outlook
Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo will undergo season-ending ankle surgery.
This is a big blow for the Colts fading playoff aspirations and will also have an effect on the running game for Week 17, and any potential playoff DFS contests. Castonzo is one half of a dominant left side of the Colts offensive line, along with All-World left guard Quenton Nelson. The Colts have an easy Week 17 date with the Jacksonville Jaguars but will need to secure a win and look for some help elsewhere to make the Philip Rivers move produce to expected results.
The Colts have downgraded OL Anthony Castonzo (knee, ankle) to "out" for Week 16 against the Steelers.
Castonzo was listed as questionable as recently as Friday afternoon. His absence will hurt Indy's offense as a whole. Jonathan Taylor remains a must-start RB1, however.
Colts LT Anthony Castonzo has officially been designated questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Castonzo has been battling through the knee injury for most of the season and has toughed it out for the most part. With fellow OT Braden Smith being ruled out for Week 16 due to being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and a matchup against a Pittsburgh D/ST that leads the league in sacks, the Colts need their blind-side protector now more than ever.
Colts LT Anthony Castonzo (knee) will be listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Raiders.
Castonzo has logged back-to-back "limited" practices to close out the week. Historically, he plays when that happens. His presence would be a plus for Indy's running game and offense as a whole.
Colts' LT Anthony Castonzo (knee) reportedly "suffered some damage to MCL" against the Titans in Week 12 but avoided further injury, suggesting a two to six week recovery, per source.
The loss of the veteran left tackle is a significant blow to the Colts' elite offensive line. The team hopes to have Pro-Bowl C Ryan Kelly eligible to return from a neck injury that kept him out of their 45-26 loss to the Titans in Week 12. Castonzo will likely be replaced by Le'Raven Clark down the stretch of the 2020 season, which could heavily devalue QB Philip Rivers and the Colts' passing attack in fantasy formats.
