Jelani Woods- Starting Season on IR
10 months ago

Colts Tight End Jelani Woods is still dealing with a hamstring injury and is set to miss at least the first 4 games of the season on IR.

Jelani Woods is as intriguing as it gets from an athleticism perspective. While some are hoping for a 2nd year breakout from the Tight End, he recently re-aggravated a pretty significant hamstring from earlier this preseason. This means Woods will miss at least the first four games of 2023 on IR, and we’ll have to hope it doesn’t linger any longer into the season.

The Colts chose to enter the season with 4 other active Tight Ends on their 53-man roster. Of the remaining Tight Ends for the Colts, Mo Alie-Cox is expected to lead the way the first 4 weeks and poses the most tantalizing physical gifts in terms of PlayerProfiler’s Athleticism Score. That said, you can expect all 4 of their active Tight Ends to rotate in and share snaps.

A rotation scenario, and a mobile, rookie QB doesn’t bode well for this Tight End platoon’s fantasy production. Fantasy managers shouldn’t rush to roster any of the 4 other active Tight Ends currently on the Colts roster.
