OG - IND
Week 13 Outlook
The Colts and Quenton Nelson agreed to a four-year contract extension averaging $20 million per year, with $60 million guaranteed, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Nelson is now the highest paid guard in NFL history. For a team that has one of the best running backs in the league, it makes sense to pay a premium for arguably the best guard in the NFL. Nelson signing with the Colts long term should boost the value of Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. in dynasty leagues.
The Colts have placed Quenton Nelson on the reserve/COVID list.
The Colts will be without multiple starting offensive lineman with Ryan Kelly also sidelined. Nonetheless, Jonathon Taylor remains a high-end RB1 per usual.
The Colts activated OL Quenton Nelson (ankle) from IR.
Nelson hasn't played since suffering an ankle injury in Week 3. His return is a major boost to the Colts' offensive line, and the team's offense as a whole.
Indianapolis Colts superstar guard Quenton Nelson has been designated to return from injured reserve.
Indianapolis will now have a 21-day window to activate their All-Pro guard. Nelson should be close to a return and will be a massive boost for Carson Wentz. He will also improve a run game that has been humming along with Jonathan Taylor at the helm.
