Matt Ryan will have to make do without one of the top pass-catchers in the NFL in Week 2 after the Indianapolis Colts ruled Michael Pittman Jr. out for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In last weekend's season opener, he totalled nine catches for 121 yards and a score. No other Colt had over 50 receiving yards.
With Pittman out, Indianapolis my lean even more heavily on last year's rushing champion, Jonathan Taylor. Parris Campbell and Nyheim Hines could see extra targets in the passing game.
The Colts racked up 517 yards of total offense in Week 1 but left Houston with a tie against the Texans.
