Colts rule out top WR Pittman against Jaguars

Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was announced.

Pittman, the team’s top receiver, has been recovering from a quad injury. He caught nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 tie against the Houston Texans.

The Colts on Friday had already ruled out receiver Alec Pierce and linebacker Shaquille Leonard for Sunday’s game.

With the injuries on offense, receivers Parris Campbell, Ashton Dulin and running back/slot receiver Nyheim Hines could see an increased role against the Jaguars. It also could mean a bigger workload for star running back Jonathan Taylor, who had 31 carries last week.

ESPN’s Stephen Holder contributed to this report.
