Colts OG Donald Thomas tears quad, placed on season-ending IR

Indianapolis Colts offensive guard Donald Thomas re-tore his quad Wednesday. This is the same injury he suffered back in Week 2 of the 2013 season. He has been rehabbing ever since and only recently returned to the practice field after missing OTAs. This injury will require surgery.

Fantasy Analysis:

Thomas isn't a Pro Bowl or All-Pro player, but the Colts will once again need to re-shuffle the pieces of their offensive line. This is a blow to the entire offense, but certainly not one that can't be overcome. Second-round draft pick Jack Mewhort is the early favorite to fill-in there, but his limited experience will be a season-long concern. Trent Richardson loses a key cog to his interior run-blocking unit. Andrew Luck will have to keep a close eye of when it is okay to step up in the pocket. The Colts are very young upfront excluding RT Gosder Cherilus, a legit veteran playing alongside four other linemen with a combined four seasons worth of experience.
