Phillip Dorsett Out At Least Four Weeks

The Colts’ disappointing day continues, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweets that wideout Phillip Dorsett fractured his ankle during his team’s loss to the Saints. The injury is expected to sideline the rookie for four to six weeks. Schefter adds that Dorsett will undergo more tests on Monday.

The first-round pick had appeared in all seven of the Colts’ contest, but he was no more than the fourth option in a receiving group that includes T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Andre Johnson. Dorsett had compiled 10 catches for 159 yards and one touchdown this season.

Griff Whalen, who cites as having played only three less snaps than Dorsett this season, will likely step up in the rookie’s place.

    P.Dorsett, D.Johnson, A. Chickillo, C. Walford, E. Flowers and B. Perryman are all players I expect to see have long and successful NFL careers. My main regret was the Jets failed to draft any of them. I think the situation would have been different had the Jets GM had his people in place.
    I think the Jets got lucky when L. Williams fell to them in rd.1. It’s much too early to grade the draft but I have a feeling the Jets drafts will improve from here on out. They also will most likely continue to draft a QB until one is developed from the draft. They also will be seeking LB’s and OL help if you asked me.
    I was hoping P. Dorsett would last until the Jets 2nd pick as it was clearly a good fit. When Dorsett was selected in rd.1 the Jets opted for WR D. Smith who has yet to impress. I however see both WR’s having big years next season.
