Description: The Patriots cut Austin Collie on Tuesday.
Insight: New England brought Collie in during the first week of October for depth. He caught three passes in four games with the Pats. The oft-injured receiver could have trouble drawing interest at this point and certainly won't have any fantasy value this season.

Insight: He was among San Francisco's final cuts in training camp. The former Colts wideout could make a catch or two here and there but he's not a preferred fantasy play.

Description: The 49ers cut wide receiver Austin Collie.
Insight: This is a team desperate for receiver help, so the move to cut Collie is a sign that the receiver isn't fully recovered from a torn patellar tendon.

Insight: Collie only made one catch in Sunday's preseason game against Seattle. It doesn't look like he's fully recovered from the knee injury that caused him to miss most of last season. Collie probably won't attract much interest from other teams until he gets a clean bill of health.

Description: According to Mike Garafolo from Fox Sports 1, Austin Collie has signed with the 49ers.
Insight: Collie reeled in a combined 15 touchdowns between 2009 and 2010. Since then, he's found the end zone once in 17 games. He gives the Niners some extra depth at receiver but that's about it.
7/14/2013 8:15:00 PM
Description: The 49ers are still interested in signing free agent Austin Collie. The former Colts wideout worked out for the Niners about a month ago.
Insight: So what's the hold up? Well, we all know what the hold up is. It's Collie's health. Collie only appeared in one game last season and two seasons earlier, concussions limited him to just nine games. He might have to sign a liability waiver before a team is willing to take a chance on him.

Insight: Collie played one game last season before suffering a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee. He was recently cleared to resume all football-related activities so it appears his knee has fully recovered. Collie also had a workout for New England earlier in the week.

Description: Indianapolis won't re-sign wide receiver Austin Collie according to Indianapolis Star beat writer Mike Chappell.
Insight: Injuries have caused Collie to miss 22 games over the last three seasons. At age 27, it's not too late for Collie to resurrect his career but the clock is definitely ticking.
9/24/2012 3:37:00 PM
Description: Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Austin Collie (knee) suffered a ruptured patellar tendon and is out for the year, according to Colts beat writer Mike Chappell.
Insight: Collie was making his 2012 debut after sitting out the first two games with lingering concussion symptoms. It's an unfortunate situation for a player who has struggled to stay on the field throughout his career. Donnie Avery is the team's clear-cut No. 2 receiver with Collie out.
9/23/2012 3:08:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis wideout Austin Collie left Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a knee injury. He will not return.
Insight: Expect Collie to be out indefinitely with what appears to be a very serious knee injury. Collie had just one catch for six yards at the time of his departure.
9/23/2012 11:48:00 AM
Description: Adam Schefter reports Colts wideout Austin Collie will be active for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Collie missed the first two games of the year because of a concussion.
Insight: Collie has never recorded more than 676 receiving yards in a season so we're not overly excited about his fantasy potential. Collie will be coming off the bench on Sunday, so don't expect Donnie Avery's fantasy value to be affected too drastically by Collie's return.
9/21/2012 3:02:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis receiver Austin Collie (concussion) practiced fully for the third straight day Friday.
Insight: It appears that Collie will finally get back on the field. Whether he can make it through four quarters is another story. If Collie starts, downgrade Donnie Avery who has been targeted 18 times in two games.
9/20/2012 5:03:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis receiver Austin Collie (concussion) practiced fully for the second straight day Thursday, according to Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Insight: Collie didn't practice last Thursday after he was a full-go Wednesday so this is a good sign. Still, Collie is no guarantee to play Sunday and QB Andrew Luck has built chemistry with Donnie Avery so we'd roll with another option Sunday.
9/16/2012 11:58:00 AM
Description: Indianapolis receiver Austin Collie is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Insight: Collie has been dealing with concussion symptoms for about a month now. He was cleared for contact this week but he was then downgraded to doubtful later in the week.
9/14/2012 9:27:00 PM
Description: Injured Indianapolis receiver Austin Collie was unable to practice on Friday. He's doubtful for the Colts' Week 2 matchup versus the Vikings.
Insight: Collie has been dealing with concussion symptoms for about a month now. He's very unlikely to play on Sunday and could be in danger of missing Week 3's game against Jacksonville as well.
9/14/2012 1:00:00 PM
Description: According to Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star, Colts receiver Austin Collie (concussions) wasn't feeling 100-percent after practicing on Wednesday and missed Thursday's practice.
Insight: It's looking less and less likely that Collie will be ready to go in Week 2. Plan accordingly.
9/13/2012 5:59:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Austin Collie (concussion) was held out of practice Thursday after fully participating Wednesday, according to Adam Caplan of thesidelineview.com.
Insight: Collie has been cleared for contact, so it's unclear if this was a precautionary measure or if Collie wasn't really a full go Wednesday. You'll recall that Collie was inactive for Week 1 after Colts coach Chuck Pagano had deemed him a "full-go." Now he was listed as a full participant in practice one day before being held out the next. It's going to be difficult to trust the Indianapolis coaching staff this season when it comes to disclosing injury information.
9/12/2012 1:28:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Austin Collie (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against Minnesota, according to coach Chuck Pagano.
Insight: Collie should start opposite Reggie Wayne and be a viable WR3 fantasy option. With Andrew Luck at quarterback, the Colts showed in Week 1 that they are not afraid to throw the ball.
9/9/2012 11:46:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver Austin Collie, plagued by concussion symptoms for most of the preseason, is being held out of Sunday's season opener against the Bears.
Insight: Donnie Avery will pick up the start in Collie's absence. Collie should be back for Week 2's game against Minnesota.
9/6/2012 6:36:00 PM
Description: According to the Indianapolis Star, Colts receiver Austin Collie (concussions) didn't confirm that he's been cleared to play Sunday.
Insight: Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Collie was a "full go" early this week and the receiver has been fully participating in practice, but it's possible he hasn't received full clearance from team doctors yet. We wouldn't recommend starting him this week.
