Cleared for Week 3

Campbell (abdomen) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Campbell started the week with consecutive limited practices but was cleared after a full practice Friday. Quarterback Carson Wentz (ankles) also progressed Friday, logging a limited session after a pair of absences to earn a questionable tag. Campbell has some intriguing upside against the porous Titans secondary, but he's unlikely to realize that upside if Wentz sits.

Remains limited Thursday

Campbell (abdomen) logged a second consecutive limited practice Thursday.

Analysis: Campbell's trying to get back in the lineup in Week 3 against Tennessee after sitting out last week's loss to the Rams, but his status remains up in the air after back-to-back limited sessions. Fellow wide receiver Zach Pascal (illness) practiced fully Thursday after missing Wednesday's practice, while quarterback Carson Wentz (ankles) remained sidelined for the second day in a row.

Limited to start week

Campbell (abdomen) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Campbell was the team's No. 3 receiver in Week 1 before missing Week 2 with an abdomen injury. He could make it back this weekend for a favorable matchup against the struggling Tennessee defense, but potentially with Jacob Eason starting at QB rather than Carson Wentz for the Colts.

At practice Wednesday

Campbell (abdomen) was present for practice Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: After being added to the Colts' Week 2 injury report this past Friday, Campbell was inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams. The wideout's presence on the field Wednesday, however, suggests that he could return to action this weekend against the Titans. Wednesday's injury report will reveal his official level of practice participation.

Inactive against Rams

Campbell (abdomen) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Analysis: There was a report that the Colts were confident he would play, so he must have not felt right in pre-game warmups. Michael Strachan will likely have a larger role in the passing game with Campbell out.

Expected to play Sunday

Indianapolis is confident that both Michael Pittman (ankle) and Campbell (abdomen) will be available for Sunday's game against the Rams despite both being listed as questionable on the official injury report, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Schefter adds that the team does want to test both players in pre-game warmups before making a final decision. Both Campbell and Michael Pittman (ankle) appeared on the injury report for the first time Friday.

Questionable for Week 2

Campbell (abdomen) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Both Campbell and Michael Pittman (ankle) appeared on the injury report for the first time Friday. The Colts can ill afford to lose either starting outside receiver since they're already without T.Y. Hilton (neck) heading into a daunting matchup with the Rams' sturdy secondary. Campbell will look to overcome this tough matchup after a Week 1 dud in which he started but caught only one pass.

Sep 17, 2021 1:43 PM EST


Just one reception Sunday

Campbell started at receiver opposite Michael Pittman with Zach Pascal in the slot in Sunday's loss to Seattle, but had just one reception for 24 yards on three targets.

Analysis: Campbell played on 46 of the offense's 76 snaps compared to 74 snaps for Pittman and 69 snaps for Pascal. Campbell should have a steady role in the passing game while T.Y. Hilton is out with a neck injury, but he may not get many targets if the Indy offensive line continues to struggle in pass protection and if the Colts continue to spread the ball around (eight players had two or more targets).

Returns to full practice

Campbell (Achilles) practiced fully Thursday.

Analysis: After logging a limited session Wednesday, Campbell practiced fully Thursday which paves the way for him to suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Seahawks. With T.Y. Hilton out multiple weeks due to a neck injury, Campbell figures to work in a slot role out of the gate this season, while Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal handle outside reps in three-wideout sets.

Limited with achilles injury

Campbell was a limited participant in practice Wednesday due to an Achilles injury. It is more of a lingering issue than a new injury suffered in practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Campbell is set to begin the season as the No. 3 receiver and a starter in three-receiver sets with T.Y. Hilton out multiple weeks after neck surgery. He'll likely work in the slot role with Zach Pascal playing outside in three-receiver sets. Campbell's 4.31 40-yard dash speed could make him a breakout candidate if he can stay healthy, so this is a concern even if minor given his injury history (played just nine games the last two seasons).

Sep 8, 2021 1:13 PM EST


Could be set for larger role

Campbell will likely have a larger role with T.Y. Hilton sidelined multiple weeks due to a neck injury, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. "I already knew I needed to step up after my last two years ... and now with TY being out, we know as an entire group we need to step up," Campbell said.

Analysis: Campbell will likely move into the slot role with Zach Pascal playing outside in three-receiver sets, but the receiving corps could be in flux early in the season as Indy also features three tight ends with plus receiving skills. Still, Campbell's 4.31 40-yard dash speed could make him a breakout candidate if he can stay healthy (he's played just nine games the last two seasons).

Blanked in box score

Campbell was held without a catch on two targets during Saturday's preseason victory in Minnesota.

Analysis: Campbell's first target was a high pass from Sam Ehlinger that went off his fingertips and into the arms of Vikings linebacker Troy Dye, who returned it to the house for the only TD of the game. The performance was a far cry from preseason Week 1, when Campbell's only look from Jacob Eason went for a 37-yard gain. Considering Eason has been the more consistent passer between him and Ehlinger, Campbell and the rest of the offense may fair better with Eason if one of the two is called on to start for Carson Wentz (foot) in Week 1.

Shows speed in preseason opener

Campbell had a 37-yard reception on his only target in Sunday's preseason win over Carolina.

Analysis: Campbell played ten snaps and showed his outstanding speed when Jacob Eason hit him in stride on a deep ball. He showed he's back to full strength after coming back from October 2020 surgery to address MCL and PCL injuries in his left knee.

Aug 15, 2021 8:06 PM EST


Back at full strength

Campbell is healthy for the start of training camp, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Limited to nine games through two pro seasons, the 2019 second-round pick is coming back from October 2020 surgery to address MCL and PCL injuries in his left knee. He was medically cleared in May and should now be a full participant in training camp, where he'll compete for first-team reps with T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal. The No. 3 receiver job could come down to a camp battle between Campbell and Pascal, with the former more explosive while the latter has proven more reliable.

Jul 26, 2021 9:12 AM EST


Fully healthy

Campbell was cleared last week and is officially good to go moving forward, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Campbell has had some tough luck with injuries early in his career but the 2019 second-round pick appears to finally be healthy again. He's coming off of a season in which he played just 63 offensive snaps in two games and recorded six catches for 71 yards, which follows just a seven-game rookie campaign due to injury. Still, he's just heading into his age 23 season, so there is still reason to believe he could have a breakout campaign in store if he remains healthy.

May 19, 2021 9:23 AM EST


Still has GM's confidence

General manager Chris Ballard said that Campbell (knee) will be "a valuable member of [the Colts] moving forward" and called the 23-year-old's recent injuries "bad luck," George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Analysis: Ballard made clear that Campbell remains in good standing with Indianapolis' coaching staff despite having begun his career with back-to-back injury-plagued seasons. Campbell flashed a bit of his tantalizing upside against Jacksonville back in Week 1, securing six of nine catches for 71 yards, but he suffered what proved to be a season-ending knee injury after playing just two offensive snaps the next game. After undergoing October surgery to address both MCL and PCL injuries in his left knee, Campbell's next task will be returning to full health in time to begin the Colts' offseason program. With T.Y. Hilton scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, Campbell is facing prime opportunity to lock in one of Indianapolis' top receiver spots alongside Michael Pittman for 2021.

Likely done for season

The Colts aren't expecting Campbell (knee) to return from injured reserve this season, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Citing a team source, Keefer relays that it would take a "minor miracle" for Campbell to play again in 2020 after the wideout required surgery in October to address injuries to the MCL and PCL in his left knee. The 23-year-old has now had both of his first two professional seasons end early due to injuries, as he was limited to just seven appearances as a rookie. Campbell played in just two games in 2020, hauling in six of nine targets for 71 yards in a season-opening loss to the Jaguars before exiting with the knee injury on the first drive of the Colts' Week 2 win over the Vikings.

Dec 2, 2020 8:19 AM EST


Will undergo surgery soon

Campbell (knee) is scheduled for a procedure to address his left MCL and PCL injuries in the near future, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Campbell isn't ruled out for the season, but a timetable for the second-year pro's recovery still remains undisclosed. The 23-year-old looked electric in the season opener when he torched Jacksonville for six catches and 71 yards, and with Michael Pittman (knee) now evidently in line for a multi-week absence, it would provide a significant boost for Indianapolis' receiving corps if Campbell were eventually able to return to the lineup.

Sep 28, 2020 2:10 PM EST


Not ruled out for the season

Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Campbell (knee) is not yet officially ruled out for the year, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Reich declined to provide a timetable for Campbell's recovery, or specify whether he'll require any procedures to repair the sprained MCL and PCL in his left knee, but it at least looks as though the second-year pro could return down the stretch. With rookie second-round pick Michael Pittman (calf) also now nursing what looks like a multi-week injury, the stage appears set for Zach Pascal, Daurice Fountain, Ashton Dulin and Dezmon Patmon to take on expanded roles behind T.Y. Hilton.

Sep 28, 2020 1:35 PM EST


Out at least three weeks

The Colts placed Campbell (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Indianapolis hasn't outlined a formal timeline for Campbell's return after he sprained the MCL and PCL in his left knee early in Sunday's win over the Vikings, but his move to IR ensures that he'll be sidelined for at least three games. According to George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin, Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said Tuesday that Zach Pascal would serve as Campbell's primary replacement at slot receiver, though Indianapolis could take a committee approach to the position that may also result in T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman and Nyheim Hines getting reps.
