It took a few seasons, but 2019 undrafted free agent Ashton Dulin finally looked to be evolving beyond just a return specialist role and was making an impact at wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts.

That development has been put on hold for the time being, however, with Dulin landing on the IR with a foot injury.

Colts Injury News

This is brutal news for Dulin, who played a season-low 23 snaps (12 on offense and 11 on special teams) before being sidelined in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos.

Before that, Dulin had racked up 150 yards on 11 receptions across his first four games of the season. He set a career-high with 3 receptions in Week 1, then quickly broke that mark with career-highs in both receptions (5) and yards (79) in Week 2. Those aren't huge totals, but for a special teamer who had previously caught just 18 passes in 43 career games, it was a considerable step forward.

Dulin's absence won't have a major impact on the wide receiver depth chart, but look for Alec Pierce and maybe Mike Strachan to see some increased run with Dulin on the shelf.

Despite a shaky start to the season and the latest injury blow, FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds do still have the Colts as the favorites to win the AFC South this season at +155 odds.
