UPDATE: Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey suffers sprained knee

Darrius Heyward-Bey @theDHB85 has to take some time off from competing to be the Cotls' No. 2 wide receiver. The former first-round pick sprained his left knee during practice Sunday. It's unclear how much time he will miss. He and T.Y. Hilton @TYHilton13 are vying for the starting job across from Reggie Wayne, and Heyward-Bey has reportedly played well during the opening stages of training camp.

Update: ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Monday on the program "NFL Insiders" that Heyward-Bey has an MCL sprain in that knee and is "definitely gonna miss a lot of time here."

Fantasy Analysis:

It's a big hit to DHB's opportunity to claim a starting job, but it's great news for Hilton. Perhaps he is being slightly overdrafted if he's off the board in the seventh round, but after a 50-861-7 line as a rookie in 2012, he's probably worth it. In the Colts' new, more conservative passing offense, the No. 3 WR probably won't have much fantasy impact.
