Alec Pierce, a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts, is battling a shoulder injury sustained during the team’s Week 6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

An update would probably come later in the week, according to head coach Shane Steichen, who told reporters on Monday that the team is evaluating the injury.

The second-year wide receiver hasn’t had the kind of breakthrough season that many had anticipated. Josh Downs’ introduction to the slot has significantly reduced the number of looks available to Pierce as a deep threat, and Gardner Minshew’s quick passing scheme has eliminated the possibility of Pierce receiving regular chunk plays.

Pierce has 11 receptions on 20 targets for 149 receiving yards this season.
Downs, Isaiah McKenzie, and Amari Rodgers would likely receive more snaps if he were to miss any time.
