Ebron caught five of nine targets for 51 yards in Saturday's 31-13 divisional-round loss at Kansas City. The Colts were unable to get into any sort of an offensive rhythm Saturday as they didn't get on the scoreboard offensively until the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old was unable to extend his touchdown streak to three games, but the five catches are his highest total since he caught 10 in Week 13 at Jacksonville.
Ebron (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Chiefs after practicing fully Thursday. After being limited at practice Wednesday, the tight end graduated to a full session Thursday, paving the way for him to be a go this weekend. In 17 outings this past season, including the playoffs, Ebron racked up a fantasy-friendly 15 TDs. He'll be working Saturday against a Kansas City defense that was 31st in the league in terms of passing yardage, while allowing 30 TDs through the air in 2018.
Ebron (hip) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. Ebron was deemed a non-participant in Tuesday's walk-through session, but his return to work Wednesday puts the tight end on track to suit up for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Chiefs. In 17 appearances this season, Ebron is averaging a so-so 45.6 yards per game, but has racked up a fantasy-friendly 15 touchdowns.
Ebron was held out of Tuesday's walkthrough due to a hip injury. Ebron missed eight games combined in his first three seasons as a pro but hasn't been a DNP for any contest the past two years, despite the occasional appearance on the injury report. According to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis, the Colts are holding true practices Wednesday and Thursday, which should help shed some light on Ebron's status. While his yardage totals have wavered from game-to-game since the team's Week 9 bye, Ebron still reached the end zone seven times in nine games during that stretch, including a six-yard TD to kick off the scoring in the Colts' wild-card win at Houston.
Ebron caught three of six targets for 26 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 21-7 win at Houston. Like all of the Colts' pass catchers, Ebron did his work in the first half as they took a 21-0 lead into halftime and cruised to victory in the second half. Kansas City awaits in the divisional round, featuring a defense that ranks second worst in the NFL with 273.4 passing yards allowed per game.
