Phillip Dorsett suffers fractured ankle

The Colts dropped to 3-4 in a 27-21 loss to the Saints on Sunday and they also reportedly lost one of their wide receivers for multiple weeks.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that first-round pick Phillip Dorsett suffered a fractured ankle during the first half of the game. Dorsett left the game after an eight-yard catch on a pass from Andrew Luck in the second quarter and didn’t return.

Per Schefter, the initial estimate is that Dorsett will miss 4-6 weeks. He’ll have more tests on Monday and it would seem to be a possibility that the team would place Dorsett on injured reserve if there’s a feeling he’ll be out any longer than the top end of that estimate.

Dorsett had that one catch on Sunday and has 21 catches for 159 yards on the year.
