INDIANAPOLIS – Chuck Pagano announced on Wednesday that Donte Moncrief will miss four-to-six weeks with a fractured scapula.

The news comes two days after the Colts were waiting word on an MRI for Moncrief's left shoulder, which he injured in Sunday's loss to Denver.

Moncrief's loss is substantial. Moncrief gives the Colts a bigger bodied presence, something that was missed for the final three quarters of last Sunday's loss to Denver.

Currently, the Colts have five healthy wide receivers on their 53-man roster: T.Y. Hilton, Jacoby Brissett, Chester Rogers, Quan Bray and Devin Street. Bray made his first NFL catch last week. Rogers, a 2016 undrafted free agent, received his first NFL playing time in Denver.

On Wednesday morning, the Colts signed Street off of the New England Patriots' practice squad.

Street, 6-3 and 200 pounds, has played in 31 career games (two starts) with the Dallas Cowboys.

From 2014-15, Street caught nine balls for 132 yards in Dallas.

Dallas waived Street, a 2014 fifth-round pick out of Pittsburgh, following final roster cuts earlier this month. Street has spent the first two weeks of the 2016 season on the Patriots' practice squad.

To make room for Street, the Colts released safety Winston Guy on Tuesday afternoon.

Guy played 37 defensive snaps against Denver, when he was thrust into duty with Clayton Geathers leaving due to a foot injury.

Parting ways with Guy indicates things are trending up towards Geathers and T.J. Green being ready for Sunday. Such a move backs up what Chuck Pagano said on Wednesday.

Green left in Week One with a sprained MCL, but he was doing some jogging and rehab work towards the end of last week.

The Colts currently have four safeties on their 53-man roster: Mike Adams, Clayton Geathers, T.J. Green and undrafted rookie Matthias Farley.

If the Colts are completely healthy at safety, expect some packages going forward with Adams, Geathers and Green all on the field at once.
