Scratch Darrius Heyward-Bey from Fantasy Sleeper Lists

Darrius Heyward-Bey’s quest to become a starting receiver for the Indianapolis Colts took a devastating hit when he was diagnosed with a serious MCL sprain after Sunday’s practice.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that there is no timetable set for when Heyward-Bey may resume practicing.

The former Raiders wide receiver was in a heated competition against T.Y. Hilton to start the season lining up opposite of Reggie Wayne. He had fantasy sleeper written all over him, but will now tumble down draft boards as the regular season draws closer.

Heyward-Bey is expected to miss an extended period of time and there are no guarantees that he will be ready for the start of the regular season.
