Sunday's game against the Houston Texans was one of thrilling highs and dispiriting lows for Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell.
Campbell, a second-round pick out of Ohio State in 2019, got his day started by beating the Texans' secondary deep for a 51-yard touchdown catch from Carson Wentz.

Unfortunately, Campbell's first target and catch proved to be his lone opportunity to make a play during Sunday's game. He left the action in the second quarter with a foot injury, and was subsequently ruled out by the Colts.

Campbell has failed to live up to his draft position over the first two years of his NFL career. Though the Colts haven't exactly been bastions of stability and production at quarterback, they still expected more from Cambpell than 24 combined catches in 2019 and 2020. He entered Week 6 with nine catches for 111 yards.
Indianapolis, 1-4, badly needs a victory against Houston to keep its longshot playoff hopes alive in a loaded AFC. Houston also entered Sunday's action at 1-4, chasing the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South.
