Austin Collie is inactive for Sunday's game between the Colts and the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Austin Collie is inactive for Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Minnesota Vikings. Collie is suffering from lingering concussion symptoms from preseason. He was able to practice fully Wednesday, but was held out Thursday due to a setback. There is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Impact: This is really disappointing news for the wideout. His season has to be considered in jeopardy at this point, especially considering his concussion troubles from last season. With Collie out, expect rookie quarterback Andrew Luck to target Reggie Wayne almost exclusively once again. Donnie Avery and T.Y. Hilton will be the second and third receivers, though neither can be recommended in standard fantasy leagues just yet.
