Hewitt (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Tennessee.
Hewitt began the week as a non-participant but was able to practice without limitations come Friday. Starting tight end Eric Ebron (concussion) is questionable, which could leave Hewitt and Mo Alie-Cox to fill in at tight end with a playoff berth on the line Week 17.
Hewitt (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Hewitt's status for Sunday's pivotal winner-take-all tilt with Tennessee seems largely up in the air at this point in time. Should he return to practice later this week, that would mark a good sign moving forward. For now, it's closer to 50-50 odds. The Colts are dealing with injuries to Eric Ebron (concussion) and Jack Doyle (torso), so Hewitt's availability has taken on a larger significance than usual circumstances would dictate.
Hewitt (ribs) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.
Hewitt recorded a full practice Friday but still ended up on the injury report. The 27-year-old has overcome his minor issue and is ready to go as the Colts No. 3 tight end. That spot in the lineup gives Hewitt little fantasy upside, especially since the Cowboys have yielded just six touchdowns to tight ends this year.
Hewitt initially popped up on the injury report after registering a full practice Friday. Even though he practiced in full, he must've received medical treatment for his ribs injury. Hewitt didn't carry an injury designation on the injury report Friday, however, so his sudden downgrade comes with some concern. If Hewitt isn't able to play, Mo Alie-Cox (calf) would likely see an increase in snaps if he can make his return after missing the last three games -- otherwise, Eric Ebron would be the only healthy tight end for the Colts.
Hewitt practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday and Thursday but was able to end the week with a full practice Friday. The Stanford product is one of four tight ends listed on the injury report, and that doesn't even include Jack Doyle, who was placed on injured reserve Monday after requiring emergency surgery on his kidney. Fortunately for the Colts, Mo Alie-Cox (calf) is the only tight end on the active roster that won't play Sunday.
