No targets in return from injury

Dulin was not targeted in the passing game while playing 14 snaps on offense during Sunday's 32-31 defeat to the Texans.

Analysis: He had missed the prior game after a concussion, but was able to play in the season finale. Dulin's season got off to a strong start as it looked like he was set to become the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver, but then hurt his foot. He he had 12 receptions for 168 yards on 18 targets and was outplaying Parris Campbell. He then missed four games due to a foot injury and was barely a factor when he returned. He had just three receptions for 39 yards on four targets in his final six games. Before the injury, it looked like he was a player on the rise but his late-season fade will put his spot on the depth chart in doubt for 2023 as Indy is likely to revamp a putrid offense.

Cleared for Week 18

Dulin doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

Analysis: As expected, Dulin, who was sidelined for Week 17 with a concussion, will be available for Week 18 after logging full practices Wednesday through Friday. Across 11 appearances this season, the fourth-year wideout has caught 15 of 22 targets for 207 yards and one touchdown.

Full go to start Week 18 prep

Dulin (concussion) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Dulin, who was sidelined for Week 17, appears to be in the final stages of concussion protocol and, barring a setback, should be able to return in Week 18. The fourth-year wideout has caught 15 of 22 targets for 207 yards and one touchdown across 11 appearances this season.

Will miss Week 17

Dulin (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Dulin has yet to pass the league's five-step concussion protocol. If he's unable to do so before the Colts face Houston in Week 18, the 25-year-old wide receiver would finish the season with 15 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown on 22 targets.

Misses second straight practice

Dulin (concussion) is not practicing Thursday, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Dulin remains in the league's five-step concussion protocol due to a hit sustained during Monday's loss to the Chargers. His last chance to get back on the practice field prior to Sunday's game against the Giants will be Sunday. If Dulin isn't available Week 17, depth wideout Mike Strachan could see a slightly increased role.

Tagged as DNP

Dulin (concussion) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's estimated practice report.

Analysis: Dulin suffered a concussion in Monday's loss the to the Chargers, after he was dealt a helmet-to-helmet hit from Derwin James, which got James ejected. Whether Dulin will be able to clear concussion protocols in time for Sunday's game with the Giants remains up in the air, and his practice status for Thursday will likely shed better light on his potential availability.

Out with concussion

Dulin will not return after suffering a concussion during the second quarter of Monday's game against the Chargers, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The injury in question occurred after the receiver attempted to catch a pass in the flats before safety Derwin James blew up the play resulting in the Pro Bowler immediately ejected. Dulin did not complete the catch as a result.

Two catches, one carry in Week 15

Dulin caught both of his targets for 25 yards and rushed once for five yards in Saturday's 39-36 overtime loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Dulin's three touches marked his highest total since Week 2. His role on offense will remain limited as long as all three of Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce are healthy.

Catches TD in loss

Dulin had one reception for a 14-yard touchdown on two targets in Sunday's loss at Dallas.

Analysis: Dulin played on 20 of the offense's 72 snaps and went out on 10 routes. Dulin looked set to have a larger role in the offense before missing four games with a foot injury, but he's had a very small role since returning largely due to the improved play of Parris Campbell.

Dec 6, 2022 1:55 PM EST

Not targeted as No. 4 receiver

Dulin went without a target while playing 22 of the Colts' 64 snaps on offense in Monday's 24-17 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Since returning from injured reserve Week 10, Dulin has yet to draw a look in the passing game despite playing 52 snaps on offense. He'll remain an afterthought in the Indianapolis passing offense behind the starting receiver trio of Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce, running back Jonathan Taylor and the tight-end triumvirate of Kylen Granson (illness), Jelani Woods and Mo Alie-Cox.

No targets in return from injury

Dulin stated at receiver in a three receiver set but didn't have a reception or target in Sunday's win at Las Vegas.

Analysis: Dulin played on 20 of the offense's 64 snaps and he went out on nine routes. It was his first game back after missing four games due to a foot injury. Dulin's role in the offense could grow as he was outplaying Parris Campbell before he was hurt.

Returns to active roster

Dulin (foot) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Dulin wound up missing the minimum four games after injuring his foot back in Week 5. The veteran receiver had a combined four receptions in the three weeks prior to the injury and likely will return to a receiving corps that's more developed with the emergence of Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell.

Nov 12, 2022 8:49 AM EST

Designated to return from IR

Indianapolis designated Dulin (foot) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Kevin Hickey of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Dulin has been on IR since he suffered a foot injury during Week 5 against the Broncos. With the move, the Colts open a 21-day window for the wideout to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, Dulin will revert back to IR for the remainder of the campaign.

Nov 9, 2022 9:54 AM EST

Expected to return this season

Dulin, who's currently on injured reserve with a foot injury, is expected to return this season, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Dulin was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after suffering a foot injury during the team's overtime win at Denver last Thursday. He'll be forced to miss at least four games and could potentially be sidelined even longer, but he is expected to return this season. Dulin had recorded at least one catch in all five of his appearances this season, but he'd secured just four receptions for 43 yards over the past three games after recording eight catches for 125 yards during the first two contests of the year. In his absence, Mike Strachan and Parris Campbell are candidates for increased snaps behind Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce.

Heads to injured reserve

The Colts placed Dulin (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Dulin made an early departure from the Colts' eventual overtime win at Denver last Thursday, the result of a foot injury. It's serious enough to sideline the fourth-year pro for at least the next four games, meaning he isn't eligible to return to the active roster until Sunday, Nov. 13 at Las Vegas at the earliest. In the meantime, Parris Campbell and Mike Strachan will serve as the reserve wide receivers behind Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce.

Oct 11, 2022 1:14 PM EST

Dealing with foot injury

Dulin is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Broncos due to a foot injury, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: It's unclear when Dulin suffered the injury, but he managed one reception for 18 yards prior to his exit. If he's unable to return, Mike Strachan could step into a larger role among the Colts' receiving corps.

Oct 6, 2022 7:13 PM EST

Just two receptions Sunday

Dulin had two receptions for 18 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: Dulin played on 19 of the offense's 65 snaps as he has moved back to the fourth receiver role the past two weeks with Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce healthy. Dulin continues to outplay Parris Campbell, so it's possible he could move into the third receiver role before too long.

Oct 3, 2022 12:02 PM EST

Moves to lesser role

Dulin had just one reception for seven yards on his lone target in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

Analysis: With both Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce returning from injuries, Dulin returned to his fourth receiver role. He played on just 18 of the offense's 71 snaps. However, he's shown more this season than starter Parris Campbell (just five receptions in three games), so it wouldn't be surprising to see him overtake Campbell for a larger role in the offense before too long.

Sep 26, 2022 12:55 PM EST

Leads Colts pass catchers

Dulin recorded five receptions on seven targets for 79 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Dulin took advantage of a depleted Colts' receiving corps to lead the team in targets, receptions and yards. His longest reception came midway through the fourth quarter and went for a gain of 39 yards, but Dulin also managed chunk gains of 12 and 10 yards throughout the middle portions of the game. Once Michael Pittman (hip) is able to return, Dulin will shift back down the depth chart, but he may have gained a larger role in the offense moving forward.

Sep 18, 2022 5:28 PM EST

Set for larger workload

Dulin is set to see an increased workload Sunday at Jacksonville with both Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) and Michael Pierce (concussion) set to miss the game, the Indianapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Dulin is likely to start opposite Parris Campbell in two-receiver sets and could even become the primary target in the passing game after earning six targets in last week's tie at Houston. Michael Strachan will likely work in three-receiver sets with Nyheim Hines, Kylen Granson and Mo Alie-Cox also potentially getting significantly more targets.
