QB - IND
Week 4 Outlook
Anthony Richardson (concussion) was a full participant at Indianapolis' practice on Wednesday.
A concussion forced Richardson to miss the Colts' game in Week 3, but now he's back and practicing at full capacity. He's still technically in the league's concussion protocols, but the team expects him to be able to clear them before their game on Sunday. If he's active he will be a fringe QB1 option with top-three upside on the week thanks to his rushing upside.
Anthony Richardson is still in the NFL's concussion protocols but will return to practice on Wednesday.
Richardson missed Week 3 and hasn't been practicing because of a concussion he suffered in Week 2, but now he is making his return to practice on Wednesday and will take first-team reps. He's still in the league's concussion protocols, but he's progressing well and the team is optimistic that he'll be cleared before Sunday. In the off-chance that he's out, Gardner Minshew II will get the start again in his possible absence.
Anthony Richardson is still in the league's concussion protocols and will remain the QB1 for the Colts when he returns.
Richardson was out in Week 3 while dealing with a concussion. Backup Gardner Minshew played well in his absence and led the team to an upset win over the Ravens, but the rookie will reassume his starting role when he passes through the concussion protocols. He's been good when on the field and his rushing upside makes him a super intriguing option week-to-week.
According to HC Shane Steichen, Colts' rookie QB Anthony Richardson, who suffered a concussion early during the team's Week 2 victory over Houston, has been ruled out ahead of Week 3.
Richardson did not log practice time this week after self-reporting concussion symptoms during the early stages of the Colts' Week 2 win. The rookie QB had gotten off to a great start with two first-quarter rushing TDs but was forced to come out of the game. Once healthy, Richardson will be a high-floor QB option for your fantasy team, thanks to heavy rushing involvement. With the rookie being out for Week 3, Gardner Minshew will be the QB1 against a stingy Ravens defense.
Anthony Richardson is not practicing on Friday.
Richardson likely needed at least a limited practice by Friday to have a chance of clearing concussion protocol by Sunday. It is looking like it will be Gardner Minshew undercenter on Sunday for the Colts against the Ravens.
