DL Denico Autry (back) did not practice on Friday, Dec. 7, and is listed as questionable. WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder), DT Margus Hunt (knee) and CB Christopher Milton (hamstring) were limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable.

TE Erik Swoope (knee) was limited in practice Friday but was also not included on the injury report. TE Eric Ebron (back, illness) and WR Chester Rogers (groin) were full participants in practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report. Our View: Autry had a massive impact last week with three sacks and two forced fumbles. He would be greatly missed against Deshaun Watson if he can't go with Margus Hunt also ailing. Kelly will be missed on the offensive line against the Texans strong pass rush. The Colts are far from full strength for this pivotal game.

Our View: Ebron is a top three tight end play this week on sheer target volume from a good quarterback, and one of the few worth playing over Jaylen Samuels in Yahoo leagues.
