And the Colts are hoping a little extra rest and the cortisone shot will be all Luck needs to make a full recovery.
The good news is when he comes back, it’ll be right where we were at, Ballard said. He’s made great strides. We’ll continue to rehab. He’ll continue to rehab. We’re just going to shut down the throwing right now to get this thing calmed back down.
Ballard said the Colts should have a decision about whether to put running back Robert Turbin on injured reserve in the next day or two. Turbin was hurt late in Monday night’s game. Safety Clayton Geathers also could return to the practice field soon too, Ballard said. Geathers has been on the physically unable to perform list with a neck injury since training camp opened in late July.
Sando: Josh Doctson, WR, Redskins. Doctson is one to watch against the Eagles on Monday night. He has two touchdowns this season on only four receptions, but with coach Jay Gruden declaring he’d expand the receiver’s role, this could be the week Doctson takes off. He faces an Eagles team allowing 14.2 PPR fantasy points per game to starting wide receivers, the third-highest figure in the league behind Tampa Bay and New England.
Yates: Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders. Is it weird to call a player who was once drafted fourth overall a borderline play in fantasy football? That’s what it has come to for Cooper, who is off to just an abysmal start this season. But there were some signs of hope last week, including five catches (more than he had in the three games prior to that combined) and a pair of catches negated by penalties.
