Born on October 5, 1997, NFL wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. now plays for the Indianapolis Colts (NFL). During his final year of collegiate football at USC, he received consensus second-team All-American honors and was subsequently taken by the Colts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
On Thursday, September 15, the second week of the NFL season will begin. This series continues this Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. CBS will carry the game live from TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. was limited in Wednesday’s game due to a quad issue, although it’s possible that the precaution was simply precautionary.
During Week 1, Pittman Jr. had a breakout performance versus the Houston Texans. He finished with nine receptions on thirteen targets for 121 yards and a touchdown, despite the game ending in a tie. He topped the team in receiving yards, therefore his absence would be devastating to the attack.

Then, wide receiver Parris Campbell and running back Nyheim Hines would probably get more playing time. Hines caught all six of his targets last week, for a total of 50 yards. Campbell had a 3-for-4 catch percentage for 37 yards on four targets but would have trouble being the team’s primary wide receiver. We can only hope that this was a mere precaution and that Pittman will be ready to play on Sunday.
On the receiving end of eight catches for 123 yards, Pittman had a career game. In a loss against the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 31–25, Pittman caught six passes for 89 yards and scored his second career touchdown. In Week 7’s Sunday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers, Pittman surpassed 100 receiving yards for the third time in his career.
He hauled in four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, helping the Colts to a 30-18 victory. Pittman caught 10 of 15 targets for 86 yards and 2 touchdowns in a losing effort in overtime the following week against the Tennessee Titans. All of his stats were bests, including targets, catches, and touchdowns. Pittman was sent off the field in the third quarter of a win against the New England Patriots in Week 14.
Pittman and Patriots safety Kyle Dugger got into a confrontation. Pittman was designated as a 2022 Pro Bowl alternate on December 23. Pittman became the sixth Colts’ pass receiver since 2000 to gain 1,000 receiving yards in a season in the team’s Week 17 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
