Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman has been ruled out for the Sunday game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was announced.

Pittman, the team’s top receiver, has been recovering from a quad injury. He caught nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 tie against the Houston Texans.

Coach Frank Reich had expressed optimism that Pittman would be able to play after he began experiencing pain Wednesday and was removed from practice.

The Colts on Friday had already ruled out receiver Alec Pierce and linebacker Shaquille Leonard for this week’s game.

With the injuries on offense, receivers Parris Campbell and Ashton Dulin and running back/slot receiver Nyheim Hines could see increased roles against the Jaguars. There also could be a bigger workload for star running back Jonathan Taylor, who had 31 carries last week.

ESPN’s Stephen Holder contributed to this report.
