Donte Moncrief will be out for 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula, coach Chuck Pagano told reporters moments ago. Moncrief suffered the painful shoulder injury during Sunday’s loss at Denver.
With Moncrief out, the Colts can be expected to incorporate Phillip Dorsett into the offensive gameplan even more. The 2015 first-round pick has tons of upside, but he also has a similar build to star T.Y. Hilton. Moncrief was a big target and that might explain why the team opted to sign 6’3″ Devin Street earlier today.
Moncrief, 23, caught 64 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns last season. In two games (really, one game and change) this year, Moncrief had seven receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown.
