Austin Collie is "day-to-day" with a potential concussion, according to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. We break down the fantasy implications.

Austin Collie is "day-to-day" with a potential concussion according to Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star reports. Though Collie's agent remains adamant that the wideout has not been diagnosed with a concussion yet and is going through the standard protocol, coaches were quick to confirm the news Monday. Pagano's prognosis could be an indication that Collie will be out a significant amount of time.

Analysis: Collie has a chance to be a very productive receiver this season opposite Reggie Wayne, especially now that Pierre Garcon is out of the picture. Concussions are becoming a recurring theme, however, and unfortunately the injury tends to come back even more readily after each new incident. Considering the concussion issue, and the fact that his value is so closely tied to Andrew Luck's development as a rookie this season, one could hardly be blamed for leaving Collie off their draft board.
