Indianapolis Colts tight end Coby Fleener has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the New England Patriots. The Colts rookie pass-catcher missed practiced Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with a shoulder injury.
The team has been without Fleener for the past two games and might not have him back until Week 13. After winning two games in his absence, the Colts will have a tough challenge this week with Tom Brady and the Patriots.
Fantasy Analysis: Coby Fleener immediately became the starting tight end as a rookie, but has suffered a setback with this shoulder dislocation. He is still in the healing process and the Colts believe they will have him back sooner rather than later, so there is no need to drop him.
Keep Fleener on your bench this week but monitor his status. He could have some valuable in the last few weeks of the NFL season.
