Joining Eagles

Pascal is signing a one-year contract with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Pascal caught only 38 passes last season despite playing 872 offensive snaps, but he does have the benefit of familiarity with Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, who was the Colts' offensive coordinator from 2018 to 2020. The 27-year-old wideout is now set to compete with Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor for roles behind No. 1 receiver DeVonta Smith, though the Eagles still have plenty of time to add another receiver (or two) to that mix.

Just one reception in season finale

Pascal had one reception for seven yards on two targets in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

Analysis: Pascal had another season of being a reliable, if not spectacular, contributor in Indy's offense with 38 receptions for 384 yards and three touchdowns, but averaged just 10.1 yards per reception -- his lowest since his rookie season (9.9). It's not clear if he's in Indy's plans for 2022 as he'll be a free agent.

Just one reception Sunday

Pascal had one reception for eight yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to Las Vegas.

Analysis: Pascal returned after missing a game while on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He played on 34 of the offense's 56 snaps, which was slightly more than Ashton Dulin's 27 snaps and represented a season low in percentage of offensive snaps. Pascal may see more activity in the third receiver role next week against Jacksonville.

Comes off COVID-19 list

The Colts reinstated Pascal (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Analysis: After testing positive for the virus last Saturday, Pascal was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list just hours before the Colts' eventual win over the Cardinals. Though he missed the Colts' first official Week 17 practice while in isolation, the wideout should get back on the field Thursday and Friday and put himself on a path to play Sunday against the Raiders. The return of Pascal will likely result in a smaller role for Ashton Dulin, who handled his third-largest offensive snap share (43 percent) of the season Week 16.

Placed on COVID list

Pascal has been placed on the reserve/COVID 19 list by the Colts.

Analysis: In a corresponding move, wide receiver Keke Coutee was elevated from the team's practice squad. In Pascal's absence, Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton and Ashton Dulin are slated to lead Indy's wideout corps in Saturday night's game against the Cardinals.

Leads team with 23 receiving yards

Pascal caught one of two targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-17 win over New England.

Analysis: Pascal's modest stat line was enough to lead the Colts in receiving yards, as the team took a page out of the Patriots' playbook against Buffalo and completed just five passes while trampling New England with the running game. After totaling a season-high 58 receiving yards in Week 9 against the Jets, Pascal has just six catches for 50 yards in five subsequent games.

Catches one pass Sunday

Pascal caught one of his three targets for six yards during Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Pascal finished third on the team in targets behind Michael Pittman (eight) and Nyheim Hines (four), but he was only able to haul in one catch for a modest six yards. Over his last two games, the wideout has garnered 10 targets, but he has caught just three passes for 18 yards. This is certainly a concerning trend and likely makes Pascal a risky fantasy option when the Colts resume action in Week 15 against the Patriots.

Dec 6, 2021 3:48 PM EST

Targeted seven times in loss

Pascal secured two of seven targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Pascal's seven targets in Sunday's loss matched his second-highest total of the season, but he failed to generate much production on his two catches. The 26-year-old racked up a season-high 58 receiving yards in Week 9 but has hauled in four of 10 targets for 21 yards while rushing once for nine yards across the last three games.

Nov 29, 2021 9:20 AM EST

No receptions Sunday

Pascal did not have a catch and only one target in Sunday's win at Buffalo.

Analysis: Pascal's lack of production was due to Indy's success running the ball (264 yards rushing) as the Colts attempted just 20 passes. Pascal played on 54 of the offense's 69 snaps and should get more activity Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Nov 23, 2021 10:57 AM EST

Pair of grabs in victory

Pascal brought in both targets for nine yards in the Colts' 23-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: The veteran possession receiver's final numbers were especially disappointing after he'd posted a solid 9-101 line on 15 targets over his last two games, and he actually lost three yards on one of his catches. Pascal's reception and yardage tallies were his worst outside of his Week 5 blanking against the Texans, and he could have a tough time improving on them much during a Week 11 matchup against a tough Bills secondary.

Nov 14, 2021 8:29 PM EST

Four catches in win

Pascal brought in four of seven targets for 58 yards in the Colts' 45-30 win over the Jets on Thursday night.

Analysis: Pascal turned in one of his trademark solid-but-unspectacular efforts that saw him serve as a reliable No. 2 option alongside Michael Pittman. Pascal's yardage total was a season-high figure for the fourth-year pro, however, and with 21 targets in his last three contests, he's at least got a relatively safe fantasy floor going into a Week 10 divisional matchup against the Jaguars a week from Sunday.

Nov 4, 2021 9:50 PM EST

Five-catch effort in OT loss

Pascal secured five of eight targets for 43 yards in the Colts' 34-31 overtime loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Analysis: Pascal turned in one of his trademark workmanlike efforts and checked in second on the team in receptions. The possession receiver's production represented a modest but welcome resurgence after he been held to a pair of three-catch efforts and catch-less tally over the prior three games. With T.Y. Hilton possibly suffering a concussion late in Sunday's game, Pascal could have a prominent role in the Thursday night Week 9 battle against the Jets.

Oct 31, 2021 4:05 PM EST

Just three receptions Sunday

Pascal had three receptions for 14 yards on six targets in Sunday's win at San Francisco.

Analysis: Pascal led the team in targets and didn't do much with them, but some of that can be excused by the rainy and windy conditions. He worked as the No. 2 receiver with T.Y. Hilton out and should continue to get a steady workload with both Hilton and Parris Campbell sidelined.

Oct 25, 2021 11:48 AM EST

Just three receptions Monday

Pascal had three receptions for 48 yards on five targets in Monday's loss at Baltimore.

Analysis: Pascal started at receiver opposite Michael Pittman and played on 59 of the offense's 69 snaps. He was also third on the team in targets. His usual significant workload bodes well for a bounceback against Houston next week.

Oct 12, 2021 12:46 PM EST

Four-catch effort in win

Pascal brought in four of five targets for 44 yards in the Colts' 27-17 in over the Dolphins on Sunday.

Analysis: Pascal gained 41 of his yards on one reception where he flashed some nice after-the-catch skills, so the remainder of his three grabs went for just three yards. The veteran possession receiver's yardage total qualified as a season-high figure, but Pascal will look to build up his overall numbers in Week 5 Monday night road matchup against the Ravens.

Oct 3, 2021 3:17 PM EST

Just two receptions Sunday

Pascal had two receptions on seven targets for 31 yards in Sunday's loss at Tennessee.

Analysis: It wasn't a great game for Pascal as he dropped a potential catch near the goal-line and failed to make a few potential catches. It was a positive he was second on the team in targets and some of his off day could be the result of Carson Wentz being limited with two sore ankles.

Sep 27, 2021 9:43 AM EST

Returns to practice Thursday

Pascal (illness) was able to practice Thursday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Pascal missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness but his return Thursday suggests the slot receiver isn't in danger of sitting out a juicy Week 3 matchup with a Titans secondary that's been the most generous in the league to opposing receivers in the early going. The only damper on Pascal's outlook Sunday is the possible absence of starting quarterback Carson Wentz (ankle), whom Erickson said wasn't spotted at practice Thursday.

Sep 23, 2021 12:04 PM EST

Misses practice with illness

Pascal missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

Analysis: The good news is that Pascal wasn't placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Assuming that doesn't change, he'll have a good chance to return for Sunday's game against the Titans, looking to build on a strong start to the season (three TDs on 11 targets in two games). It is possible Pascal has to catch passes from backup QB Jacob Eason instead of banged-up starter Carson Wentz (ankles).

Sep 22, 2021 1:23 PM EST

Back in end zone Sunday

Pascal secured five of six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: Pascal crossed the goal line for the third time in two games when he recorded an eight-yard scoring grab late in the third quarter in connection with Carson Wentz (ankle). The veteran is clearly a red-zone factor in coach Frank Reich's scheme, which helps make up for the fact Pascal doesn't flash much explosiveness between the 20s. He'll look to continue his hot start in a Week 3 road matchup against the Titans, although his outlook would undoubtedly suffer if Jacob Eason was forced to start the contest in Wentz's stead.

Sep 19, 2021 2:22 PM EST

Logs pair of scores in loss

Pascal secured four of five targets for 43 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 28-16 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Analysis: Pascal stepped up as a red-zone threat for new quarterback Carson Wentz with T.Y. Hilton (IR-neck) unavailable, getting into the end zone from 10 and 11 yards out in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. While chunk plays are far from his forte, the veteran wideout brings a sure-handed, reliable presence that it wouldn't be difficult to envision Wentz getting very comfortable with as the season unfolds. Pascal will look to continue his strong form when the Colts tangle with the Rams at home in Week 2.
