Austin Collie isn't sure yet whether he will play in Sunday's game between the Colts and the Bears despite returning to practice Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Austin Collie isn't sure whether or not he will play in Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears despite returning to practice Wednesday, Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Start reports. Collie suffered yet another concussion last month, putting his status for the season opener in jeopardy. He said that his return to the field will be a decision among himself, his wife and doctors.

Analysis: Collie is doing everything he can to prevent himself from suffering long-term damage. The reasoning is perfectly intelligent and sound, but unfortunately it doesn't help fantasy owners much. He could be a decent prospect starting next to Reggie Wayne, although a bit limited with a rookie quarterback helming the offense. Be sure to follow up in the coming days for more on Collie's status.
