Hilton (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bills. Hilton sandwiched a limited practice in between full sessions Wednesday and Friday, which proved to be sufficient enough for the Colts to clear him to return from a two-game absence. With Indianapolis' top wideout back in the fold, there will presumably be fewer targets to go around for the likes of depth options Chester Rogers, Zach Pascal and the newly signed Dontrelle Inman, but all three players could draw meaningful snaps with slot man Ryan Grant (ankle) sitting out Week 7. As for his own prospects in his return to game action, Hilton may have trouble finding soft spots in a solid Buffalo defense, especially if he's trailed by standout corner Tre'Davious White for most of the afternoon.
Coach Frank Reich noted Friday that the Colts are "pretty encouraged" with regard to Hilton's (hamstring) chances of playing Sunday against the Bills, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis After practicing fully Wednesday, Hilton dialed things back some Thursday. Though he returned to practice Friday and isn't a lock to play Sunday, he appears to be trending in the right direction after missing the Colts' last two contests. Fortunately for those looking to use the wideout in Week 7 lineups, the Colts kick off at 1 p.m. EDT on Sunday.
Hilton (hamstring) is participating in practice Friday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. Hilton returned to practice Wednesday as a full participant, then scaled back to limited status Thursday as part of a plan to gear up for Sunday's game against the Bills. He seems to be on track to play following a two-game absence, but he'll likely be listed as questionable when the Colts release their final injury report later Friday.
Hilton (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Hilton was listed as a full participant Wednesday, but we won't interpret the downgrade in participation as indicative of a setback. Per Bowen, Hilton mentioned "a possibility of taking it easier (Thursday), knowing Sunday is the most important day for his readiness." Moreover, the wideout also noted that his hamstring felt better than he expected upon his return to practice Wednesday. We'll revisit Hilton's status Friday, but at this stage, we expect him to return to action Sunday against the Bills, barring any setbacks. It remains to be seen, however, if he ends up listed as questionable for the contest or heads into the weekend minus an injury designation.
Hilton (hamstring) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. According to Bowen, Hilton appeared to be moving around without any major hassle Wednesday, and his listed participation level puts him on track to suit up Sunday against the Bills, barring any setbacks in the Colts' next two practices. If available for his normal allotment of snaps, Hilton will once again profile as quarterback Andrew Luck's top wideout target, a role that translated to double-digit targets in his three full games this season.
