T.Y. Hilton has been practicing at all four receiver spots.
The explosive Hilton is healthy and able to play both outside positions as well as both slots. "We feel like that's important so that teams can't scheme to take him away," said OC Pep Hamilton. "We've challenged T.Y. to understand the concepts (of) all four spots. He's done extremely well." Hilton is not expected to start off the year as an every-down player, but he'll be ready to go if Reggie Wayne (ACL, age) or Hakeem Nicks (ineffectiveness) falters. Jun 9 - 8:52 AM

T.Y. Hilton (foot) resumed practicing Wednesday.

Hilton sat out some of last week's sessions, so it's nice to see him back so soon. The playmaking fireplug has twelve 100-yard games and 14 touchdowns in his two-year career (including playoffs), but could get squeezed for targets this season if Reggie Wayne (ACL) and Hakeem Nicks (ineffectiveness) are able to bounce back.

T.Y. Hilton is missing Colts OTAs with a foot injury.

The extent of the injury is unknown, but there are no indications it's severe. With Reggie Wayne (ACL surgery) also on the shelf, LaVon Brazill, Da'Rick Rogers, and Griff Whalen are soaking up first-team reps behind Hakeem Nicks.

T.Y. Hilton caught four passes for 103 yards in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Hilton finishes 2013-14 on a tear, posting a monster 28/482/2 line over his past three games. Few players needed the offseason to get here more, however, as Hilton has been plagued by a shoulder injury, tweaking it multiple times per game. Hilton also banged up his knee against New England, but never checked out. An explosive jitterbug who can gain separation deep and get free over the middle, Hilton took a big step forward as a sophomore, catching 82 passes for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns. With Andrew Luck throwing him the ball, Hilton has WR1 upside. The only concern is his slight 5-foot-10, 183-pound frame. Hilton has missed only one game as a pro, but picked up a ton of nicks and bruises. He was injury prone in college. Regardless, he's an elite option in Dynasty leagues.

Colts OC Pep Hamilton is using T.Y. Hilton at four different receiver positions in an effort to keep him away from concentrated coverage.

He's playing X, Z, left slot, and right slot. "We feel like that's important so that teams just can't kind of game plan and scheme to take him away," explained Hamilton. "So we've challenged T.Y. early and often to understand the concepts and understand all four spots. He's done extremely well." Containing Hilton is sure to be the focus of Bill Belichick's Divisional Round game plan.
Jan 10 - 3:29 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 13 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns in Indianapolis' Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Hilton was uncoverable, particularly after the Chiefs lost No. 1 CB Brandon Flowers to a concussion. Hilton drew a whopping 18 targets. The highlight came late in the fourth quarter, where Hilton got behind the entire Chiefs defense to score what would prove to be a game-winning, 64-yard touchdown. Both the catches and yards were new career highs, though Hilton is now up to 24 grabs for 379 yards over his past two games. He'll be the focal point for either Denver or New England's defense in next week's Divisional Round game.
Jan 4 - 8:43 PM

T.Y. Hilton dropped 11 catches for 155 yards on the Jaguars in the Colts' Week 17 victory.

The receptions and yards are new career single-game highs. Hilton racked up first-down catch after first-down catch before creating separation deep for a 37-yard first-half connection. He ripped off 41 yards on a third-quarter bomb. Hilton became the ninth player in Colts franchise history to reach 1,000 receiving yards. His final 2013 regular season receiving line was 82-1,083-5. Although Hilton isn't built like a true No. 1 receiver (5'9/178), he's been forced into that role due to Reggie Wayne's ACL tear and will remain the favorite for targets in Indy's pass-catching corps during the playoffs.

T.Y. Hilton is absent from the Colts' Week 17 injury report.

Hilton is over his shoulder injury as the Colts jockey for playoff positioning.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 04:12:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught five passes for 52 yards in Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Hilton was targeted seven times and continues to be limited to short-to-intermediate gains as the Colts' No. 1 receiver. Andrew Luck took one shot for Hilton deep, but the two couldn't hook up. Hilton is best suited to be a No. 2 receiver and not be the focal point for opposing defenses. It's been a disappointing end to the fantasy season for Hilton, but much better days are ahead. The Colts wrap up the regular season at home against Jacksonville next week.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Hilton has been battling the shoulder the past month-plus and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He'll start but is more of a WR3 for fantasy Super Bowl week. Also inactive for the Colts are OLB Daniel Adongo, DB Sergio Brown, OL Hugh Thornton, OL Jeff Linkenbach, OL Joe Reitz, DL Ricky Jean-Francois, and DL Montori Hughes.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 16 at Kansas City.

Hilton admitted to reporters Friday that he's been playing through "quite a bit" of shoulder pain since falling hard on the arm in Indianapolis' late-November game against Arizona. Hilton is tentatively expected to start against the Chiefs, but clearly isn't 100 percent. This may help explain his recent drop in production, although Hilton does have five-plus receptions in six of his last seven games. He's more of a WR3 in fantasy trophy week.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) returned to practice Friday.

Hilton was added to the Week 16 injury report Thursday as a DNP with a shoulder issue he's been battling for a few weeks. The second-year receiver is in no danger of missing Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs. Hilton is a WR3.

T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, missing practice with a shoulder issue.

It's the same injury Hilton has been dealing with for three weeks, so the DNP isn't a major concern. That being said, it's always eye-brow raising when a player is a mid-week addition to the injury report. Owners can keep Hilton penciled in as their WR3, but his status will definitely be worth double-checking on Friday and Sunday.

Following Sunday's win over the Texans, the Colts confirmed that involving T.Y. Hilton was a priority.

Hilton had six catches in the game's first 17 minutes and finished with a career-high eight grabs. "That was the game plan, get me going early," he said. "Let's get a rhythm going between me and Andrew." Hilton would have had a much bigger day if the Colts hadn't taken a 20-3 lead at halftime. "I don't think you ever want to force balls to somebody, but, yeah, to get T.Y. involved ... everybody knows what kind of playmaker he is," Luck said. The matchup outside at Kansas City in Week 16 is far tougher, but at least the Colts are identifying their best players.

T.Y. Hilton caught eight passes for 78 yards in Indianapolis' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Hilton had six catches in the game's first 17 minutes, but the Colts took their foot off the gas in a game that was never close. Houston's incompetence likely cost Hilton's fantasy owners a much bigger day. Either way, the catches were a new season high, while the yards were Hilton's most since Week 10. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR2 for Week 16 against the Chiefs.
