Fountain (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Texans.
Analysis: Fountain was limited in practice Tuesday and Wednesday before logging a full participation Thursday, and is on track to suit up for the Colts' playoff opener. The rookie fifth-round pick is likely to take most of his snaps on special teams, but could see limited offensive usage with T.Y. Hilton (ankle), Dontrelle Inman (shoulder/finger), Zach Pascal (knee), and Ryan Grant (toe) all nursing injuries.
Fountain (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: It's a step in the right direction for Fountain who was unavailable for last week's regular-season finale. Even if Fountain can suit up for Saturday's contest, the rookie projects to be most serviceable on special teams.
Fountain (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Analysis: Fountain will miss his fifth straight game due to a lingering ankle injury. If the rookie fifth-round pick is able to get healthy and the Colts are able to extend their season with a win over the Titans, Fountain could see a limited offensive role during the playoffs.
The Colts promoted Fountain from their practice squad Friday.
Analysis: Fountain finds his spot on the active roster with T.Y. Hilton (shoulder), Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) and Chester Rogers (groin) all nursing injuries. The rookie fifth-round pick could see limited offensive snaps in three-receiver formations, but will face an uphill battle to gain any sort of fantasy relevance this season.
Fountain was waived by the Colts on Saturday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Analysis: It's a bit surprising to see the Colts parting ways with a rookie fifth-round pick at an obvious position of weakness. The team did acquire Marcus Johnson in a Saturday trade with Seattle, providing some semblance of depth behind the top trio of T.Y. Hilton, Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers. Indianapolis likely will place Fountain on the practice squad if he makes it through waivers unclaimed.
Fountain secured three of four targets for 32 yards during Thursday's preseason finale against the Bengals.
Analysis: The vast majority of Fountain's production came on a 31-yard catch along the right sideline on a pass from Phillip Walker. Still, the fifth-round rookie had himself a nice overall game Thursday and looks to have a very good chance of surviving final roster cuts this weekend. Should he indeed make the roster and proceed to impress in the regular season, it isn't out of the realm of possibility for Fountain to become a fantasy-relevant name within an unsettled Colts receiving corps.
Fountain (knee) returned to practice Saturday, Jake Arthur of Colts.com reports.
Analysis: Fountain missed several practices along with the Colts' preseason opener due to a minor bursae injury in his knee, but the rookie wideout was able to return Saturday. The 2018 fifth-rounder could see additional opportunities to move up the depth chart throughout training camp after fellow rookie receiver Deon Cain tore his ACL during Thursday's win in Seattle.
Fountain missed Thursday's preseason win at Seattle due to a knee injury, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.
