Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Collie suffered a concussion in the preseason and hasn't played since. He was practiced in full on Wednesday but was limited in Thursday and Friday practices. He was developing chemistry with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck prior to the injury. The concussion is particularly alarming because of Collie's history with head injuries.

Fantasy Impact: Austin Collie will be a high upside third wide receiver in fantasy leagues when healthy in 2012. How long he'll stay healthy is up for debate, but if Collie takes the field on Sunday, he is a sneaky start in deeper leagues. Keep an eye on his injury leading up to game time.
