Injury Knee - ACL
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Like the departed Donte Moncrief, who left Indianapolis in free agency this offseason, Cain stands tall at 6-foot-2 and ran the 40-yard dash in the low 4.4s. However, the sixth-round rookie isn't considered as complete of a receiver as Moncrief and even has a reputation of being nothing more than a straight-line speedster. With that said, Cain instantly popped up on the fantasy radar given the potential upside of an Andrew Luck-led offense. The rookie drew rave reviews early in training camp, but a torn ACL in the first week of the preseason brought an immediate end to his campaign. Read Past Outlooks

Ahead of schedule in rehab

Knee - ACL
October 17, 2018
Cain (knee) relayed Wednesday that he's "ahead of schedule" in his rehab from surgery to repair a torn ACL, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
ANALYSIS
The rookie sixth-round pick suffered the season-ending injury during the exhibition slate, resulting in his placement on injured reserve in August. Though he won't get a chance to contribute for the Colts this season, the fact that he's progressing quicker than anticipated suggests that he might be ready to go for OTAs next spring. Even if that timeline proves too ambitious, the wideout should be running and cutting without limitations by the time training camp arrives.
