T.Y. Hilton caught 8-of-11 targets for 174 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' 26-22, Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle. The knee "injury" that had Hilton listed questionable proved to be a non-issue. Hilton will be a WR1/2 next week when the Colts travel to London to face the Jaguars.
Sep 25 - 7:46 PM

Colts RT Joe Reitz exited Week 3 against the Chargers with a back injury.

Right guard Joe Haeg has moved to right tackle, with Jonotthan Harris entering.
Sep 25 - 6:45 PM

Colts CB Vontae Davis (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

He'll be making his season debut after missing about a month with an ankle injury. Davis' return will be a big boost to what has been a terrible pass defense, though the Colts are also still without CB Patrick Robinson (concussion) and slot CB Darius Butler (hamstring). Philip Rivers remains a QB1.
Sep 25 - 3:13 PM

T.Y. Hilton (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Hilton was added to the injury report Thursday and missed Friday's practice, but it all seemed precautionary. Look for him to be locked up with budding star CB Jason Verrett on the outside much of the day.
Sep 25 - 3:10 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

As expected. Despite being listed questionable, Luck was never in doubt. T.Y. Hilton (knee) is also active and starting. Inactive for the Colts are WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade), CB Darius Butler, CB Patrick Robinson, OT Le'Raven Clark, OG Denzelle Good, WR Devin Street, and NT T.Y. McGill.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora confirms Andrew Luck (shoulder) "is starting" Sunday against San Diego.

Luck's practice reps were limited during the week and he was listed as questionable, but there was never any concern about his availability among beat reporters. Some parts of the DFS community got worried when the Colts-Chargers game was pulled off the board at a few Vegas sportsbooks on Wednesday, but it is up at every meaningful sportsbook at the moment. There is some concern about Luck's sore shoulder, but he will be starting Sunday versus San Diego.
Sep 25 - 11:07 AM

Colts CB Vontae Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Chargers in Week 3.

Coach Chuck Pagano expressed optimism Friday that Davis would be able to start versus San Diego, although his status may come down to a game-time decision. Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams would get small downgrades were Davis able to suit up. It's still unclear whether he can play a full complement of snaps.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Both Williams and Benjamin would become riskier targets if Davis played, although it's unlikely he'd be at full strength and he'd probably just operate on one side of the field as opposed to shadowing any one of the Chargers WRs. Benjamin and Williams both line up all over the field - neither has racked up over 40% of their snaps at any one WR position - so they'd each likely see Davis for about 20-33% of snaps assuming he plays every snap.
Sep 23 - 2:21 PM

Andrew Luck (questionable, shoulder) will play Week 3 against the Chargers.

There was never any doubt, even after Luck sat out practice Wednesday. Coach Chuck Pagano said the team is simply going to manage his reps this season. Luck is a top-end QB1 in a plus spot at home.
Sep 23 - 12:54 PM

T.Y. Hilton (questionable, knee) was held out of Colts practice on Friday.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Hilton is just "sore," and was "rested" on the last day of the practice week. "He's going to be fine," Pagano promised. Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday due to a limited practice. It sounds like he will be starting versus San Diego.
Sep 23 - 12:54 PM

Colts CBs Patrick Robinson (concussion) and Darius Butler (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Robinson had a "little hiccup" in the final phase of the concussion protocol and will miss another game. Butler has yet to play this season. The Colts' pass defense is still ripe for the picking with Philip Rivers coming to town.
Sep 23 - 12:47 PM

T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited practice with a knee issue.

A similar move caused alarm last week, but it turns out this is just going to be Hilton's ritual for the time being. Hilton was actually held out last Thursday before ultimately starting against the Broncos. He's a solid WR2 for a decent matchup with the Chargers. Jason Verrett is unlikely to follow Hilton into the slot.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Hilton is second in targets (23) and tied for fourth in red-zone targets (4) in the early going, which sets him up for a huge afternoon against the Chargers. He's going to avoid Verrett while he's lined up in the slot, and with Donte Moncrief out there is little reason to expect his target total to drop. This contest is one of the better targets of the week on the fast Indy track. Hilton is playable in any format.
Sep 22 - 4:32 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) returned to Colts practice Thursday, getting in a "limited" session.

The Colts' handling of Luck has been raising more questions than answers, but there's zero doubt about his Week 3 status. Luck is ready to go for a plus matchup with the Chargers in what figures to be a high-scoring game.
Sep 22 - 4:10 PM

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said Donte Moncrief's shoulder injury offers a chance for Phillip Dorsett "to step up."

"Dorsett has been getting better and better," Chudzinski added. With Moncrief out, Dorsett is set to be the No. 2 target on a team which throws 40-plus times a game. That kind of workload matched with his big-play ability makes him an interesting play every week. He is an upside WR3 even in a tough matchup against the Chargers.
Sep 22 - 12:18 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

The Colts have been monitoring his practice reps the first few weeks and likely will do so all season. He'll be fine for Sunday's showdown with the Chargers.
Sep 21 - 3:59 PM

Colts CB Vontae Davis (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

In addition to Davis, CB Patrick Robinson (concussion) and FS T.J. Green (knee) are also back at practice, though Robinson is in a no-contact jersey. The Colts have the most injury-riddled defense in the league, and it has been getting torched early in the year. Getting Davis back will go a long way toward helping contain opposing pass games. It's still too early to tell if he'll play in Week 3.
