Description: Hart missed practice on Wednesday because of the ankle injury that kept him out last Thursday.
Insight: Hart appears unlikely to play, but that shouldn't impact lineups for fantasy teams still alive at this point. (
12/9/2010 11:02:00 AM
Description: Hart will not play Thursday night against Tennessee.
Insight: The running back returned from an ankle injury in Week 13 but reinjured it in the loss to Dallas. Any fantasy owner who hasn't already given up on Hart this year should do so. (
12/6/2010 10:03:00 AM
Description: Hart's injured ankle was finally healthy enough for a Week 13 return, but he reinjured it in the third quarter. Hart carried just five times before leaving the game.
Insight: Any fantasy owner playing a Colts back other than Joseph Addai -- who remains out -- is probably not in good shape. (
12/4/2010 8:04:00 PM
Description: Hart missed practice on Friday but took part the two days before. He is listed as questionable for the game against Dallas.
Insight: Hart appears to be expected to return from an ankle injury this week, but his status and the game's late start make him not worth the fantasy gamble. (
11/27/2010 11:00:00 PM
Description: Hart carries the "questionable" label into Week 12 because of the ankle injury that kept him out the past three weeks.
Insight: Hart didn't practice all week, so why he carries a more positive status than Addai this week is anyone's guess. Figure that he'll be out. (

Insight: With Joseph Addai (neck/shoulder) expected to sit out another game against the Chargers, Hart will be Donald Brown's backup. We doubt Hart will have a ton of fantasy value this week. Brown has started to look better as the starter.
11/20/2010 3:05:00 PM
Description: Hart is listed as questionable after missing practice once again this week with an ankle injury.
Insight: Fantasy owners will have to assume that Hart will miss Week 11. Donald Brown should start again, and the Colts should throw a ton -- as usual. (
11/6/2010 10:02:00 PM
Description: Hart has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Philadelphia.
Insight: This move was expected, as he missed practice all week with a knee injury. (
11/6/2010 5:03:00 PM
Description: Hart missed practice all week and appears unlikely to play Sunday despite a mere "questionable" designation.
Insight: This should mean a start for Donald Brown, but it's tough to get excited about him. (

Description: Colts RB Mike Hart is expected to undergo an MRI on his injured ankle. SOURCE: ASSOCIATED PRESS
Insight: Hart rolled his ankle Monday night, but not before he put up 103 total yards against the Texans defense. If he is healthy, he should be a big consideration as a pickup going up against the Eagles this weekend.

Description: Colts HC Jim Caldwell is confident that RB Mike Hart can shoulder the load if both RB Joseph Addai (shoulder) and RB Donald Brown (hamstring) can't play Monday night against the Texans. SOURCE: INDIANAPOLIS STAR
Insight: There really is no question that Addai will sit this week, but Brown's status is unknown after sitting out of practice on Wednesday, even though all signs had pointed to him being ready. If Hart is forced to start, Javarris James will back him up.
7/13/2010 10:05:00 PM
Description: Colts RB Mike Hart says he's "as healthy as I've been since my junior year in college."
Insight: The question is, can he stay that way? If he can, he might have marginal value in the Colts? backfield, but, given his history, that seems like a longshot. (
2/8/2010 8:44:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed two times for four yards on Sunday in the Super Bowl against the Saints.
Insight: Hart is third on the depth chart and has little fantasy value heading into next season. (
1/25/2010 8:34:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed one time for three yards on Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Hart saw the one carry in the second half and is not expected to factor into the offense with Joseph Addai and Donald Brown ahead of him on the depth chart. (
1/18/2010 8:33:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed six times for 11 yards and caught one pass for nine yards on Saturday against the Ravens.
Insight: Hart saw an increase in touches while Addai was nursing a shoulder injury. (
1/4/2010 8:42:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed ten times for 28 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Bills. He also caught two passes for 16 yards.
Insight: Hart saw the majority of the carries in the Colts' backfield as he rushed for his first touchdown of his career. (
12/24/2009 8:21:00 AM
Description: Hart is the Colts' running back who is most likely to see a boost in fantasy value if they decide to rest Joseph Addai.
Insight: Donald Brown is also expected to return to action but it seems that Hart has passed him on the depth chart and could be a decent fantasy option in Weeks 16 and 17. (
12/18/2009 8:24:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed three times for three yards and caught one pass for 11 yards on Thursday against the Jaguars.
Insight: Hart saw limited action as he came into the game late when Chad Simpson left with an injury. (
12/7/2009 12:06:00 AM
Description: Hart rushed four times for 11 yards and caught two passes for 27 yards against the Titans on Sunday.
Insight: Hart saw his first action of the season with Donald Brown inactive. Even so, with limited touches he has minimal fantasy value. (
10/28/2009 12:19:00 AM
Description: Hart, who has been inactive lately for the Colts, should be active against the 49ers now that Brown is unlikely to play.
Insight: Hart could sneak in and steal carries from Simpson but that is no guarantee. Even so, Hart would be an extremely risky start this week. (
