The Colts released Phillip Lindsay from their practice squad Thursday.
Lindsay's short stint in Indianapolis comes to an end Thursday with the Colts signing Jake Funk to their practice squad. The 28-year-old appeared in three games, tallying 57 total yards on 21 touches. Lindsay will likely see another opportunity on a practice squad but will not hold any fantasy value.
Phillip Lindsay tallied two yards on one carry and did not catch his lone target in a loss to New England Sunday.
Outside of a win over Denver in early October, Lindsay has not factored into the offense for much of the season. The 28-year-old will likely revert back to the practice squad. Fantasy managers will want to leave Lindsay on the waiver wire for now.
Phillip Lindsay has been activated from the Colts' practice squad ahead of their Week 9 matchup against the New England Patriots.
Lindsay will be elevated in light of the news that Jonathan Taylor (ankle) won't be available to play Sunday. It isn't clear how much work he will get, but he will likely share touches with Deon Jackson. He's good for an emergency flex option at best against a stellar New England defense.
Phillip Lindsay tallied seven rushing yards on three attempts Sunday. Lindsay also caught all three of his targets for five yards in the win over Jacksonville.
Lindsay was limited to a change of pace role when Deon Jackson needed to be spelled. With Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines set to return soon, Lindsay will likely be released or revert back to the practice squad. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable leaving Lindsay on the waiver wire.
Phillip Lindsay has been added to the active roster ahead of the Colts' Week 6 game with Jacksonville.
Lindsay will join the Colts' backfield once again with Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines ruled out for Sunday. Lindsay was able to tally 40 yards in the Colts' Week 5 win, which was his first game of the season. Fantasy managers should expect Lindsay to serve as the backup to Deon Jackson in Week 6.
