Austin Collie missed practice again Friday, and probably won't play Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts WR Austin Collie (concussions) sat out of Friday practice for a second straight day and is now doubtful for Week 2 against the Vikings, reports Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star. Collie was a full participant in Wednesday practices, but wasn't feeling 100% Thursday and sat out on doctor's advice. He has not played since suffering a major concussion in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Impact: If nothing else, it's a good sign that the team is taking concussions seriously and not letting Collie back on the field until they're 100% sure he can play. Not so good news for fantasy owners, who have to spend another week planning around the dead roster space. Don't give up on him yet, but if Week 3 injury reports aren't looking up, then might be the time to start thinking about moving on.
