T.Y. Hilton caught 4-of-6 targets for 49 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.
Last year's NFL receiving yardage leader has been held under 60 yards in back-to-back games to begin the season with Scott Tolzien, then Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. It should be no surprise that Colts skill-position players are struggling in the box score. Even against the Browns in Week 3, Hilton will be a risky WR3/flex option. This team needs Andrew Luck to get healthy quick. Sep 17 - 4:54 PM

Date:

T.Y. Hilton corralled three catches for 57 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams.

All of Hilton’s production came in the first half. He was also the intended receiver on both of Scott Tolzien’s interceptions. Hilton may get a slight boost if Jacoby Brissett is under center for next week’s game against the Cardinals, but he won’t return to elite WR1 status until Andrew Luck is healthy. That could be a while.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said T.Y. Hilton may miss minicamp with a hamstring strain.

The coach made it seem like the injury is minor, but hamstring injuries are always notable for receivers. Even so, there will not be any real reason for concern unless Hilton is forced to miss time early in camp. Coming off a 91/1,448/6 season, Hilton is once again a locked-in WR1.
Jun 13 - 12:44 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-12 targets for 95 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Hilton finishes 2016 with a career-high 1,448 yards. The 1K campaign is his fourth straight. A genuine playmaker, Hilton gets open at will, and contrary to popular opinion, has huge days on the road as well at domed Lucas Oil Field. Shockingly durable for a 5-foot-9, 180-pound NFL player, 27-year-old Hilton is one of the best wideouts in the league. He's signed in Indy through 2020.
Jan 1 - 5:02 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 4-of-9 passes for 105 yards in Week 16 against the Raiders.

He also added a two-point conversion. Hilton was the Colts only receiver after Donte Moncrief left with a shoulder injury. He got tackled from behind on a 39-yard catch that should have been a touchdown. Hilton leads the NFL with fifteen 25-plus yard catches. He'll likely see a lot of Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey in Week 17.

T.Y. Hilton managed three catches for 45 yards on seven targets in the Colts' Week 15 win over the Vikings.

He was rested along with the other Colts starters in the fourth quarter of a blowout win. Hilton gained 31 yards on a broken play deep downfield in the first quarter and was targeted twice in the end zone toward the end of the drive, but he simply wasn't needed otherwise as the Colts dominated with their running game. Frank Gore rushed 26 times for 101 yards. Expect Hilton to bounce back when the Colts travel to The Black Hole in Week 16.

T.Y. Hilton is not listed on the Colts' final injury report.

He sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but returned to a full session on Friday and will be all systems go against the Vikings. Hilton has been given practice time off recently due to a back injury, but it hasn't affected his availability or performance. Hilton should see a lot of targets against Minnesota. The question is whether he'll be able to do much with them against an elite secondary as the Colts prepare to play without three starting offensive linemen.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 03:23:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) didn't practice on Thursday.

He's listed with a back injury. Hilton seems to be following the same pattern as last week when he practiced on Wednesday and Friday with a day off in between. As of now, there's not much concern about Hilton's status for Week 15. He'll be a no-brainer WR1, even in a tough matchup against the Vikings.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 04:13:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 9-of-13 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Texans.

Hilton was the Colts entire pass offense with Donte Moncrief (hamstring) going down in the second half. He got open deep on a double move for a 35-yard touchdown. Hilton should continue to see heavy targets if Moncrief misses time. He's a locked-in WR1.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 05:04:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 9-of-10 targets for 146 yards in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets.

After suffering a back injury in the Thanksgiving game against the Steelers, Hilton seemed back to normal in this one. He simply did whatever he wanted with the Jets' defensive backs giving him big cushions at the line of scrimmage, probably as a way not to get beat deep. Hilton didn't do much damage on deep balls, but he turned short-to-medium catches into chunk yards with his after-catch ability. The only target he didn't catch was a bad drop. Hilton and the Colts head back to their home dome next week against the Texans where Hilton will be a locked-in WR1.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 11:19:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) is active for Week 13 against the Jets.

As expected. Hilton will be a rock-solid WR1 against a burnt-to-crisp Jets pass defense. Inactive for the Colts are OLB Robert Mathis, CB Patrick Robinson, SS Clayton Geathers, ILB Deon King, OT Le'Raven Clark, OG Austin Blythe, DE Lavar Edwards.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 07:07:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) is questionable for Week 13 against the Jets.

Hilton was able to practice in full Friday and Saturday, and Colts.com's Kevin Bowen reports he is expected to play. Hilton will be a back-end WR1 against the Jets on Monday night.
Sat, Dec 3, 2016 01:49:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to a full practice on Friday.

That puts him on track to play Monday night against the Jets. Hilton will be an obvious WR1 against New York's overmatched secondary.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 04:06:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Hilton is expected to play on Monday Night Football, but this reminds that it's not a sure thing. Both Hilton and coach Chuck Pagano have insisted he will suit up against the Jets. Hilton's status will be updated on Friday.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 03:55:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) is practicing Wednesday.

Hilton injured his back in the Thanksgiving Night game against the Steelers, but both he and coach Chuck Pagano have been optimistic about his availability for this coming Monday night against a burnable Jets secondary.
