Returns to practice squad

Patmon reverted to the Colts' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Patmon suited up Sunday against the Titans, but he failed to take the field for any snaps. He'll try to earn another elevation to the active roster when the Colts host the Commanders on Sunday.

Elevated to active roster

Patmon was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Patmon has bounced between the Colts' active roster and practice squad this season, and Sunday is likely to be his second game of the season. With Keke Coutee (concussion) out, Patmon will serve as depth among the team's wide receiver corps but he won't be a priority for targets.

Staying in Indy

The Colts signed Patmon to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Patmon appeared in one game before being waived by the Colts on Tuesday to open up a roster spot for kicker Chase McLaughlin. The 2020 sixth-round pick recorded just two receptions over 64 offensive snaps with Indianapolis last year, and he could serve as a game-day elevation in case any of Indianapolis' wideouts go down with an injury this season.

Let go by Colts

Patmon was waived by Indianapolis on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Patmon appeared in one game for the Colts this season, which was their Week 2 contest against the Jaguars. He saw six targets, hauling in two of them for 24 yards. Patmon's exit comes as the team needed to sign Chase McLaughlin to their active roster, as he had surpassed his limit of three practice-squad elevations. If he doesn't get claimed by another team, there's a chance that he could sign with the Colts' practice squad.

Won't face Titans

Patmon (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Titans.

Analysis: With the Colts' receiving corps back to full strength, Patmon will be inactive for the second straight game. Mike Strachan appears to have bested Patmon for the fifth receiver role on the depth chart.

Oct 2, 2022 9:07 AM EST

Sitting Sunday

Patmon (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Patmon was active for the Colts' loss to the Jaguars last Sunday, but with Michael Pittman (quadriceps) and Alec Pierce (concussion) set to return, Patmon will find himself on the sidelines. He'll work to earn a chance to be active in Week 4 against the Titans.

Fails to impress in increased role

Patmon had two receptions for 24 yards on six targets in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

Analysis: Patmon had a big drop on third down in the game and didn't make a strong impression. If Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce remain sidelined due to injury, the Colts may look elsewhere for targets in the offense.

Sep 19, 2022 10:07 AM EST

Inactive in season opener

Patmon was inactive for Sunday's tie at Houston.

Analysis: Patmon is the No. 6 receiver and lost out to a depth role on offense to Mike Strachan. Patmon may have a very limited role until there is an injury in the receiving corps.

Wins spot on 53-man roster

Patmon won a spot on Indy's 53-man roster, 107.5 FM The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Patmon and Mike Strachan won the final two spots on the wide receiver depth chart. Patmon had a strong preseason with nine receptions for 171 yards and a touchdown in three games. Patmon likely enters the season as the No. 5 receiver, but will mostly play on special teams barring injuries.

Breakout preseason game

Patmon have five receptions on six targets for 103 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown catch, in Saturday's preseason loss to Detroit.

Analysis: Patmon is competing with Keke Coutee and Mike Strachan for the No. 5 receiver role. Patmon wasn't having a great training camp by many accounts, so this was a needed performance even if mostly in the second half against second- and third-string defenders. The battle for the last wide receiver spots will likely be decided late in camp.

Aug 20, 2022 9:19 PM EST

Vying for roster spot

Patmon is listed as the No. 6 wide receiver on the Colts' first unofficial depth chart of training camp, Andrew Moore of reports.

Analysis: While Patmon hasn't wowed at camp, he's made enough plays to be considered as a potential option for the initial 53-man roster. Last season, the 2020 sixth-round pick made eight appearances for the Colts and caught two of four targets for 21 yards and one score across 64 offensive snaps -- all career highs. It appears like he has a shot at a larger role in Year 3, but the looming return of Mike Strachan (knee) could change things quickly.

Scores first NFL touchdown in 2021

Patmon caught two of his four targets for 21 yards and one touchdown across eight appearances during the 2021 campaign.

Analysis: Patmon was on the active roster for an eight-game stretch from Week 9 through Week 17. The 2020 sixth-round pick played double-digit snaps twice but never recorded more than one target in any contest. His lone touchdown came on a 14-yard catch against the Cardinals in Week 16. The second-year pro will be under his rookie contract through the 2023 season, but it remains to be seen if his role will expand next year.

Loses role

Patmon (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Patmon has been active for every game since Week 9, though he'll be relegated due to the return of Parris Campbell (foot). Even when active, Patmon played a limited role by commanding only four targets across eight contests this season.

Jan 9, 2022 9:09 AM EST

Reinstated from IR

Patmon (foot) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.

Analysis: Patmon resumed practicing in late October, and he'll be able to suit up for the first time this year Thursday against the Jets. He's unlikely to have a significant fantasy role after he played just two offensive snaps during his rookie season.

Nov 4, 2021 11:45 AM EST

Cleared to practice

The Colts are designating Patmon (foot) for return from IR, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Analysis: The transaction begins a 21-day window wherein the Colts can evaluate Patmon at practice. As a rookie last season, Patmon only appeared in one contest and played two offensive snaps.

Oct 20, 2021 10:10 AM EST

Placed on injured reserve

Patmon (foot) was placed on injured reserve, Mike Wells of reports.

Analysis: Patmon was a candidate for the fifth receiver role, but hurt his foot in the final preseason game. The severity of his injury isn't clear, but he'll miss at least three games. With T.Y. Hilton out at least several games due to a neck surgery, Patmon may have missed an opportunity to get significant playing time.

Hurts foot in preseason finale

Patmon had two receptions for 64 yards in Friday's preseason win at Detroit, but left with a foot injury, ESPN 107.5 FM Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Patmon is battling Mike Strachan and Ashton Dulin for perhaps the final roster spot at wide receiver. Patmon had three impressive preseason games and looks set to win a roster spot if his foot injury isn't serious.

Aug 27, 2021 10:51 PM EST

Another impressive preseason game

Patmon had four receptions on five targets for 60 yards in Saturday's preseason win at Minnesota.

Analysis: Patmon is battling Mike Strachan and Ashton Dulin for perhaps the final roster spot at wide receiver. Patmon has had two impressive preseason games and looks likely to win a roster spot. However, he'd need several injuries in the receiving corps to get significant playing time on offense.

Aug 22, 2021 9:32 AM EST

Five receptions in preseason opener

Patmon had five receptions on six targets for 49 yards in Sunday's preseason win over Carolina.

Analysis: Patmon is battling Mike Strachan and Ashton Dulin for perhaps the final roster spot at wide receiver. Strachan was seen having a strong camp, but Patmon was impressive Sunday and showed it will be a close battle.

Aug 15, 2021 7:45 PM EST

Sitting out opener

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.
