Hilton caught just two of his four targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Falcons. Hilton has struggled to build chemistry with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, recording just 176 yards and no touchdowns in the veteran's three starts this season. The deep threat's short-term upside is definitely limited with Andrew Luck out for at least the next few weeks.
Hilton caught five passes off of six targets for 82 yars in Sunday's win over Denver. So much for being a game-time decision, as Hilton ended up leading the Colts in catches, targets and yards. His six targets were his fewest of the season, but he and Andrew Luck were able to be much more efficient with those targets, as Sunday's game was the first time this season in which Hilton caught five passes on fewer than nine targets. Provided his foot injury doesn't linger, Hilton has a favorable matchup coming up next week against Atlanta's bottom-10 pass defense.
Hilton (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Considered a game-time decision in advance of Sunday's contest, Hilton is in uniform Sunday, but it remains to be seen how close to a full workload he'll be up for in Week 9 after not practicing this past week.
Hilton (foot) is not expected to play Sunday against Denver, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hilton is questionable and a game-time decision on the official injury report, but this report isn't a surprise since he didn't practice all week. Still, we can't officially rule him out until inactives are released before Sunday's 3:05 pm ET game against Denver.
Hilton will test out his injured foot during pregame warmups ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Hilton was unable to practice at all this week due to the injury suffered this past Monday against the Panthers, and he is officially listed as questionable. The Broncos already boast one of the best defenses in the NFL, and the absence of Hilton would be a huge blow to a Colts passing game that would have to rely on Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett.
