WR T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts
|5-10, 183||Born: 11-14-1989||College: Florida International||Drafted: Round 3|
Hilton has begun to get some kick return opportunities, though it may be a timeshare with Griff Whalen.
He is listed as questionable on this week's official injury report.
News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 15): Hilton suffered a hamstring injury of unspecified severity on Sunday - he stated after the game 'I hope so [be able to play next week]. I'll know more after I go get an MRI and talk with the doctors.' Further evaluations are ongoing Monday morning - it is worth noting that Hilton stayed in the game after the injury, but was slowed and much less effective.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): Hilton didn't do much against the Texans defense that he had destroyed in past games, and he emerged with a hamstring issue we will have to watch during the week, although it sounds like he'll be able to play in Week 16. He will be a risky but high upside play if he can go for Week 16.
General News (Fri Dec 19): did not practice on Friday and is questionable to play this week. RTV6's Mike Chappell is convinced that Hilton will not play against the Dallas Cowboys.
General News (Thu Dec 18): did not practice on Thursday.
General News (Wed Dec 17): did not practice on Wednesday.
Week 16: at Dallas Cowboys
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Andrew Luck posted 18/34 for 187 yards passing, two TDs and one interception vs. the Texans last week - unfortunately, the usual Texan-slayer, T.Y. Hilton, tweaked his hamstring during the game and was ineffective after the injury (eight targets for 4/50/0 receiving). Hakeem Nicks (two for 2/44/1) and Dwayne Allen (four for 2/16/1) were the recipients of Luck's TD passes last week, while Coby Fleener saw five targets for 2/32/0 receiving. We'll see if Luck can rev up this attack to it's normal high-octane level here in Week 16. The Cowboys' pass D is ranked 23rd in the NFL averaging 249.6 net passing yards allowed per game, with 20 passing TDs given up vs. 14 interceptions and 23 sacks generated so far this season (tied for 11th- and 28t-ranked, respectively). Mark Sanchez threw 17/28 for 219 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions against the Cowboys last week; Jay Cutler stung this D with 32/46 for 341 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown two weeks ago. Luck and company have a good shot at getting back on track against the Cowboys' sub-par pass D.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 13 vs WAS (5 / 5 / 62 / 1 rec)
A relatively ho-hum performance for Hilton, considering the year he's had, but the third-year receiver kickstarted the offense with a 25-yard back-shoulder catch in the first half, then scored a touchdown with an ankle-breaking route and impressive snag in the back on the end zone to finish the drive. Hilton and Luck's connection continues to be off the charts, and Hilton's big-play threat opened things up for Coby Fleener and Donte Moncrief on Sunday, who each finished with two long touchdowns as a result of safeties sliding to Hilton's side.
2014 Week 14 vs CLE (19 / 10 / 150 / 2 rec)
If any of the Colts are matchup-proof, it's Hilton, who overcame a slow first half (one catch, nine yards) for his sixth 100-yard game of the season. Hilton left some plays on the field, including a dropped touchdown, a fumble and a catchable ball that was tipped up for an interception, but was brilliant in the second half when the Colts needed him most. Joe Haden blanketed Hilton for most of the day, but Hilton beat him on a 42-yard touchdown and then later on the game-winning score. Hilton now has over 80 yards or a touchdown (or both) in 10 of the last 11 games. With his high workload (19 targets on Sunday), Hilton will continue to produce WR1 numbers against suspect secondaries down the stretch.
2014 Week 15 vs HOU (8 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)
For the first time in his career, the Texans were able to keep Hilton under 75 yards. But Hilton looked uncoverable early, racking up all five catches for 50 yards by halftime. But the Colts' offense got conservative in the second half, and Hilton dropped one target and couldn't turn his hips for a back-shoulder attempt on another. Hilton's lack of production in the second half was more due to circumstance than his play, although Houston did make a very concerted effort to keep him from beating them over the top. He had a hamstring issue coming out of this one, but the MRI was negative and Hilton hopes to play in Week 16.

Our View: It is highly unadvisable to play Hilton even if he is active. The Colts have little to nothing to gain by risking an aggravation that would worsen his condition today.

Hilton (hamstring) missed practice all week but is questionable for Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys. Our View: It would be a surprise if Hilton played in a game that can't offer much help to the Colts in playoff seeding unless the Broncos or Patriots drop a game to a last-place team. Even if Hilton does go, he is at risk of limited snaps and effectiveness.
