Austin Collie is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.
Austin Collie is inactive for Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears. He was spotted running routes during pre-game warm-ups, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. Collie returned to practice this week after suffering yet another concussion in preseason. Donnie Avery will start opposite Reggie Wayne.
Analysis: After a brief moment of hope, Collie owners will need to make sure he's on the bench. Avery gets a boost as a fantays option, but he probably shouldn't be considered except in deeper leagues. The Bears are a difficult matchup, and the Colts have a rookie, albeit talents, quarterback helming the offense.
