Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is officially questionable for Thursday night's game against the Texans. He was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The team didn't actually practice, so it's just an estimation. But it's certainly a good sign for his chances of playing vs. Houston. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow. Hilton will come with elevated risk if active but would also boast plenty of upside against a Texans defense he routinely torches. His last 4 lines vs. the division rival: 6-74-1, 5-85, 9-199 and 4-115.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) remained sidelined on Tuesday. At this point, fantasy owners can't be expecting him to play against the Texans on Thursday night. That'd again leave Zach Pascal as Indy's #1 WR -- and an upside WR3 in this plus matchup.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. That gives him a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Texans. It'd be a complete guess how the Colts would split carries between Wilkins and Jonathan Williams. Nyheim Hines is locked in as the primary pass-catching back. We'll get another update on Wilkins tomorrow.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins told reporters on Monday that his injured ankle "feels great" and that he expects to play against the Texans on Thursday night. Players tend to be over-optimistic about their injuries, so take this with a grain of salt. We'll see if Wilkins is able to practice on Tuesday. His availability would turn the Colts' backfield into a 3-man committee along with Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines.

Colts HC Frank Reich said that RB Marlon Mack had surgery on his fractured hand on Monday morning. There's not yet a timetable for his return, but we should get one soon. Fantasy owners should be bracing for Mack to miss multiple games. With RB Jordan Wilkins dealing with an ankle injury, Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines are the Colts' healthy RBs for Thursday night's game against the Texans.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Mack is expected to miss a "few weeks" beyond Thursday night's game.

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered a fractured hand in Sunday’s win over Jacksonville. Jordan Wilkins sat out today with an ankle injury, so the Colts might need to roll out a Jonathan Williams-Nyheim Hines tandem Thursday against Houston. Williams was particularly impressive against the Jags on Sunday, rushing 13 times for 116 yards.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hand injury and won't return. RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is inactive today, leaving Indy with RBs Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He was expected to miss 3-4 weeks, which would have him back for Week 12 or 13. Zach Pascal gets another game as Indy’s #1 WR and is on the WR3 map with QB Jacoby Brissett back. TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle will also continue to play expanded roles in the passing game.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) won't practice on Wednesday. HC Frank Reich won't yet rule Hilton out for this weekend's game against the Jaguars, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him. Marcus Johnson stepped in as Indy's #2 WR last week but still isn't a fantasy option. Hilton's absence should continue to mean increased roles for TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a rib injury. He's averaged 3 carries per game this season, so his absence will mean just a bit more work for RB Marlon Mack.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He's expected to miss another game or 2 beyond Week 10. With WR Parris Campbell (hand) also out, Indy is down to WRs Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain. Pascal led the group in snaps and routes last week and is a viable WR3 in Sunday's plus matchup.

Colts WR Parris Campbell fractured his hand in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, HC Frank Reich said. The rookie will undergo surgery and "miss some time," Reich said. The team is hoping not to place him on IR, but Campbell figures to miss multiple weeks. It's unfortunate timing as he was in line to assume a bigger role with T.Y. Hilton out with his calf injury. The Colts are now down to Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Deon Cain as their healthy WRs. We'll see if Devin Funchess is ready to return from his broken collarbone.

Colts DE Justin Houston (calf) and S Malik Hooker (knee) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each guy turned up questionable but is available for normal usage. Houston looks less attractive for IDP lineups than usual with the calf issue and strong Pittsburgh pass protection.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. HC Frank Reich said Friday that Hilton hurt his calf on Wednesday and could miss 3 weeks. His absence leaves Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Parris Campbell and Deon Cain as Indy's top 4 WRs in Pittsburgh this weekend. Pascal is the best fantasy bet after leading those other 3 in snaps and routes last week, but he's no better than a WR4. Downgrade QB Jacoby Brissett without Hilton.

Stephen Holder of The Athletic supplied some ominous info early Friday afternoon on WR T.Y. Hilton's calf injury. Holder said Hilton was in a walking boot Thursday and that the Colts wideout "is very much in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game at Pittsburgh." Unless Indy rules him out today, we'll likely need to track Hilton's status right up until Sunday's inactives come out. Stay tuned. And if you've been planning to start QB Jacoby Brissett this weekend, consider your other options.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) and TE Eric Ebron (ankle) missed practice on Thursday. Hilton was limited on Wednesday, while Ebron wasn't on the injury report at all. It's worth noting that DE Justin Houston and S Malik Hooker were also added to the injury report on Thursday, so it's possible the Colts are just getting some guys mid-week rest. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and was listed as questionable, so there’s some added risk to using him in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. We'll look for updates on Doyle and will get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. His absence would be a big boost for TE Eric Ebron, was was out-snapped 56 to 32 by Doyle last week.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. Chase McLaughin kicks again for L.A.

Chargers K Mike Badgley (groin) put in full practices on Thursday and Friday but is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. It’s unclear if he’s ready to make his 2019 debut on Sunday, but you should avoid this situation in Week 7 fantasy lineups. The Chargers are sporting a low 19.5-point implied total this week.
