The Indianapolis Colts are hobbled and things didn’t get any easier for spot-starter Scott Tolzien after No. 1 wide receiver T.Y. Hilton exited the game before the half with a back injury.
T.Y. Hilton is questionable to return with a back injury.
The Colts announced that Hilton is questionable to return and fans can only hope that he will be able to resume playing today. Hilton has 888 receiving yards this season, which means he averages 88.8 yards per game.
Few receivers display the mix of speed and tenacity that Hilton does, and he is a jack-of-all-trades receiver. Just last week, we saw how good Hilton is, as he snatched a touchdown from the grasp of Perrish Cox, snagging a crucial score that should have been an interception. Indianapolis, of course, would go on to win that game.
Hilton was one of the few bright spots in the Colts disastrous 2015 campaign and now we are starting to realize why the Colts paid him so handsomely despite also drafting Phillip Dorsett in the first round.
