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.
Dec 1 - 3:55 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.
Nov 30 - 12:55 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano is "optimistic" T.Y. Hilton (back) will be able to play Monday night against the Jets.

Hilton also thinks he will be "okay." He was not able to practice Monday after injuring his back on Thanksgiving, but he has a full week to get healthy before the game against the Jets. Still, it would be heartening if Hilton returned to practice Wednesday.
Nov 28 - 11:44 AM

T.Y. Hilton (back) did not practice Monday.

Hilton tried to play through his back injury on Thanksgiving, but he was only able to make it a few snaps. This missed practice is certainly a concern, but he has plenty of time to get ready for Monday night against the Jets. His status will be updated by Thursday at the latest.
Nov 28 - 10:54 AM

Updating an earlier report, T.Y. Hilton (back) has left Thursday's Week 12 game against the Steelers for a second time and will not return.

Well, that last blurb was certainly a waste of time. Hilton came back for the start of the second half but took himself out again after only a few snaps. He injured himself in a collision with Mike Mitchell late in the second quarter. Hilton will end the night with three catches for 54 yards on five targets. Donte Moncrief will be Scott Tolzien's go-to receiver with Hilton sidelined.

T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to Thursday's Week 12 game against the Steelers.

Crisis averted. Hilton was lit up by Mike Mitchell late in the second quarter but was back out for the start of the second half. Hilton owners can all take a deep breath.
Nov 24 - 10:31 PM

T.Y. Hilton left Thursday's Week 12 game against the Steelers with a back injury and is questionable to return.

Hilton went down late in the second quarter after taking a monster hit from Mike Mitchell. He miraculously held on for a 32-yard catch. Hilton was able to walk off on his own power but headed straight for the locker room. He snagged two-of-four targets for 50 yards before exiting. With Hilton sidelined, Chestor Rogers will play in base sets opposite Donte Moncrief.
Nov 24 - 9:56 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-9 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Titans.

Hilton's nine targets were a team high. He scored on a fourth-down pass in the first half and had a 50-yard catch in the fourth quarter. Hilton should have had a bigger game, but had a bad drop on what could've been a 40-yard TD. He looked completely over his hamstring issue coming off the Colts' bye. Hilton is a WR1 for Week 12 against the Steelers.
Nov 20 - 5:26 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-8 targets for 82 yards Week 9 against the Packers.

It was a quiet 82 yards for Hilton, but he saved his biggest play for last, converting a late third down with a 27-yard grab across the middle to ice the game. Hilton looked healthy despite a hamstring injury which limited him during the week, and he will get plenty of time to rest any lingering issues over the bye week. Hilton will be a solid WR1 against the Titans after the break.
Nov 6 - 8:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton is no longer on the Colts' Week 9 injury report.

Hilton practiced in full on Friday and will start Sunday's game at Lambeau.
Nov 4 - 4:12 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder confirmed T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is a "go" for Week 9 against Green Bay.

There was some early-week concern about Hilton's Week 9 availability, but that was laid to rest when he practiced in full on Thursday. Beat writers have been impressed by Hilton's work on the field, and he will start at Green Bay. Hilton has been running most of his routes at slot receiver this season. Rotoworld-RotoGrinders Pick Six host Eric Crain won the Milly Maker with Falcons slot receiver Mohamed Sanu (9-84-1) in his lineup against the Packers last week. Daily Slant: Even with Donte Moncrief back in the fold, Hilton is still an elite play at the WR spot in Week 9. Hilton's target totals have dipped slightly with Moncrief around, although last week's lowly performance was as much injury-related as anything else. With the Packers ranking 1st in the league against RBs, Hilton and Moncrief should be very busy. Hilton figures to run most of his routes against Micah Hyde in the slot.
Nov 4 - 1:45 PM

Updating an earlier report, T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

Hilton was noncommittal about his status on Wednesday but his return to a full practice is a pretty clear indicator that he'll be ready to go for Week 9. Coming off a tough game against Kansas City (one catch for 20 yards), Hilton could have a field day against Green Bay's injury-ravaged secondary if his health cooperates.
Nov 3 - 4:11 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday.

Hilton did not sound sure about his status on Wednesday, but this practice suggests he is going to suit up against the Packers. Hilton was ineffective playing through the hamstring injury last week, however. He needs to be knocked down a few spots in the receiver ranks.
Nov 3 - 11:53 AM

According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) was "reluctant to commit" to playing Week 9 against the Packers.

Hilton suffered a hamstring injury early in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. He returned after a brief absence but never looked quite right. Hilton sat out Wednesday's practice but that's been a frequent occurrence this year. We'll make sure to keep an eye on his status throughout the week. Though it seems like Hilton is always dealing with some sort of nagging injury, he's only missed two games since debuting in 2012. Daily Slant: If Hilton ends up sitting out this weekend, it's going to open up plenty of value on the Indianapolis side. Given Green Bay's strength defensively is against the run, Andrew Luck and Co. are among the top aerial attacks to target in what should be a high scoring affair. Donte Moncrief would become a plug-and-play cash game option after seeing nine targets in his first game back from injury. Jack Doyle would also be an elite value option if Dwayne Allen remains inactive.
