Dropped by Colts

The Colts released Wright (knee) after he failed a physical, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Wright landed on injured reserve with a knee injury before the 2018 season, and he's likely still battling this condition. Once he gets healthy, he'll look for a depth role elsewhere. Since entering the league in 2014, Wright has suited up in 24 games and caught 18 passes for 197 yards and zero touchdowns.

Being held out Saturday

Wright (knee) will sit out Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Wright injured his knee in the Colts' preseason opener and has not returned to the field since. Apart from T.Y. Hilton, the competition for wide receiver snaps on the Colts roster is a fairly open race, so Wright will be hoping to get healthy soon in order to establish himself on the depth chart. Look for Zach Pascal and Daurice Fountain to see additional snaps with Wright out.

Ruled out against Baltimore

Wright (knee) won't play in Monday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Analysis: Wright suffered the unspecified knee injury in last week's preseason opener against the Seahawks which then sidelined him at practice. The 26-year-old is battling for a roster spot as a depth receiver and can ill afford to miss much time, but the severity of the injury is currently unknown.

Week-to-week with knee injury

Wright (knee) is considered week-to-week going forward during the exhibition season, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Wright sustained the injury during Thursday's preseason opener versus the Seahawks. It would be advantageous for him to return relatively quickly, as he is competing for a depth role on the Colts' receiving unit.

Injures knee in preseason opener

Wright injured his knee and won't return to Thursday's preseason opener against the Seahawks.

Analysis: It isn't clear when Wright suffered the injury, so it's hard to gauge how severe it may be. The 26-year-old is competing for a depth role in the Colts' receiving corps and any missed time can only hurt his odds of making the final roster.
