Patmon (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Analysis: The sixth-round rookie out of Washington State did enough in training camp to secure his spot on the Colts' 53-man roster, but the coaching staff apparently didn't view him as being ready to handle a role on offense or special teams. The Colts will keep Michael Pittman and Ashton Dulin active as backups behind the starting receiver trio of T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal.
Patmon has made Indy's final 53-man roster, The Athletic reports
Analysis: Patmon came out of Washington State as an unpolished receiver, but the Colts were enamored enough by his frame (6-4, 228) and his senior-season production (58-762-8) that they took a flier on him in the sixth round. He had an impressive training camp and the Colts decided to keep him over two veterans (Marcus Johnson and Daurice Fountain). Patmon will have a limited reserve role initially, however.
Patmon has increased his chances of making the Colts' 53-man roster through a solid training camp, Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Analysis: Patmon came out of Washington State as an unpolished receiver, but the Colts were enamored by his frame (6-4, 228) and his senior-season production (58-762-8) that they took a flier on him in the sixth round. The knocks about his limited route tree may still be justified, but Patmon is asserting himself in training camp, showing he's dependable on jump balls and can leverage his speed (4.48-sec 40) to get open. Patmon could still be on the roster bubble since there's plenty of proven talents with the team, but a strong ending to camp could secure a spot.
