Hilton (ankle) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after not practicing again Friday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Despite the wideout not practicing all week, the Colts are holding out a degree of hope that Hilton could rally in time to play this weekend. Per Stephen Holder of The Athletic, the team plans to see how Hilton responds in the next 24 hours, which sets the stage for a potential game-time call for Hilton in advance of Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. If he's unable to go this weekend, added looks in the Indy passing game would be available for Chester Rogers, Zach Pascal, Ryan Grant and Dontrelle Inman.
Hilton (ankle) was not spotted at Friday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. Other Colts beat writers on the scene, including Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis and Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis, seemed to imply they were expecting Hilton to show up at some point Friday, but he never did during the portion of practice open to the media. It's looking like Hilton will not practice at all this week, but fantasy players shouldn't lose hope yet, as Keefer still expects Hilton to play Week 15. The Colts will reveal whether or not that remains a possibility when they release their final injury report of the week after practice comes to a close.
Hilton (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. Hilton missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday last week due to a shoulder issue, but was able to return in a limited capacity Friday and ended up having a big game in Week 14, despite exiting that contest "momentarily" after appearing to tweak his ankle in the second quarter, per Mike Wells of ESPN.com. As long as Hilton repeats such a practice pattern this week, we'll pencil in the Colts' top wideout as a go this weekend. It is possible, however, that the team could elect to list Hilton as questionable for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff against the Cowboys.
Hilton caught nine of 12 targets for 199 yards in Sunday's 24-21 over the Texans. Hilton came half a yard shy of accounting for half his team's receiving yards on the day. The only downside was he was unable to find the end zone, although he came close in the second quarter when he hauled in a 60-yard pass to set up a four-yard Marlon Mack touchdown on the next play. While the 29-year-old was a bit banged up with a shoulder issue coming into the game, he showed he was quite healthy and now faces yet another tough matchup at home Week 15 against Dallas.
Hilton (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans. Hilton, who missed practiced Wednesday and Thursday, returned to a limited session Friday and will now give it a go in game of great import to the playoff hopes of the 6-6 Colts. Assuming no setbacks Sunday, Hilton will continue to head his team's wideout corps, an assignment that has yielded 24 catches (on 32 targets) 357 yards and two TDs over his last three games.
