Ebron caught four of eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans.
Ebron gave the Colts the lead for good when he hauled in a 14-yard pass with just under three minutes remaining in the first half. The 25-year-old has now scored in all but four games this season, and as a result, he's considered a top-10 tight end for fantasy purposes over the rest of the season. He'll try to reel in another score at home Week 15 against Dallas.
Ebron (illness/back) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Houston.
Ebron's absence from practice Wednesday and Thursday was likely a result of his illness more so than a minor back injury. He rejoined his teammates Friday as a full participant, gearing up for the probability of another heavy workload. Already averaging 11.0 targets in the six games Jack Doyle (kidney) has missed, Ebron may be left as Andrew Luck's top weapon Sunday if wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is absent or limited. The Colts have already ruled out WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder), who averaged 5.4 targets the past five weeks.
Ebron (illness) took part in Friday's practice, according to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis.
Ebron missed the last two days of practice because of his ailment, but it appears he was feeling good enough to get back on the field for the Colts' final session of the week. His participation alone puts him on track to suit up in Week 14, but his official status will be revealed after Friday's practice wraps up.
Ebron remains under the weather as of Thursday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
The tight end has also been managing a back issue of late, but his illness is evidently the culprit for his absence from practice Thursday. As long as Ebron practices Friday, in a any capacity, he'll be on track to play Sunday against the Texans.
Ebron (back/illness) did not practice Wednesday.
Ebron was also held out of practice last Wednesday with a back issue, but practiced fully the next day, so we wouldn't be surprised to see the tight end back on the field Thursday, assuming his illness doesn't linger.
