Michael Pittman & Zack Moss OUT; Taylor IN for Colts in Week 16
7 months ago

Michael Pittman was cleared from concussion protocol, but had a relapse in symptoms and will miss week 16 against the Falcons.

The Colts Offense will look different this week with Jonathan Taylor returning from Thumb surgery and Michael Pittman and Zack Moss both being ruled out from injuries suffered in last weeks win against the Steelers.

 

Without Moss, Taylor will return to a featured role in the Colts offense and be leaned on more than usual without Pittman in the passing game. Expectations for Taylor should still be tempered against a Falcons Defense that is yet to allow a rushing touchdown to a running back this season. Taylor will be backed up by Trey Sermon and Tyler Goodson, who can be left out of fantasy lineups this week.

 

Alec Pierce will be the leader in snaps at wide receiver without Pittman, but D.J. Montgomery looks to be the biggest beneficiary after dropping a would-be touchdown early last week before hauling one in later in the game.
