The Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 1-year deal. Now 46, Vinatieri will return for his 24th NFL season. He remained solid in 2018, hitting 85.2% of his attempts with a long of 54 yards.

Colts S Malik Hooker is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves Indy without its deep cover man against a pass offense plenty capable of exploiting the deficiency. Potential replacement Mike Mitchell is also out. DT Denico Autry is active after entering the day questionable

Colts S Malik Hooker (foot) and DT Denico Autry (shoulder) are questionable for today's game against the Chiefs. Hooker's absence, in particular, would be tough on an Indy secondary that will already be stressed by the league's top offense.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) isn't listed on the final injury report for Saturday's game against the Chiefs. He had been listed as questionable the past few weeks, so it's possible he's in better shape now -- although Hilton still didn't practice at all this week. Regardless, he's a nice fantasy play in the Divisional Round after tallying 85+ yards in 4 of his last 5 games. WR Ryan Grant (toe) is out again, leaving Dontrelle Inman, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal as Indy's WRs behind Hilton.

Colts S Clayton Geathers and DE Jabaal Sheard are active for today’s game against the Texans. Both entered the day questionable

Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and Dontrelle Inman (shoulder, finger) are active for today's game against the Texans. Hilton has been playing effectively through this ankle injury for the past month and remains a high-upside fantasy play vs. a Houston defense he routinely torches. Inman and Chester Rogers will serve as the Colts' #2 and #3 WRs today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "the belief is" Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will play today against the Texans. That's certainly been our assumption, despite the questionable tag. Hilton played through such designations each of the past 2 weeks. He continued to miss practice all week, though, and carries some risk. He did manage regular playing time each of the final 2 games, however, topping an 80% snap share in each.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman is expected to play today against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Inman's officially questionable with shoulder and finger injuries but in limited practices all week. Inman caught 9 balls over the past 2 games and scored in each. He finished 5 of his past 8 games with 4+ receptions.

Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans. Geathers, though, got back to his usual practice schedule of missed workouts sandwiching a full Wednesday practice. He missed the final 2 regular-season games. Sheard missed Thursday's practice but took part the previous 2 days. That matched last week, when he played through a questionable tag. We'll check their statuses Saturday afternoon.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder, finger) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans. WR Zach Pascal (knee) is also listed as questionable. He was sidelined on Tuesday, limited on Wednesday and a full-go on Thursday. We're expecting both of these guys to play but will find out for sure around 3 pm ET on Saturday. WR Ryan Grant (toe) has been ruled out.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans. He didn't practice all week and still isn't close to 100%. (HC Frank Reich said Friday that Hilton would have likely missed a week or 2 late in the season if the games weren't so important.) But he's been playing through this ankle injury -- and effectively. He'll be out there on Saturday.

Colts S Clayton Geathers is inactive for tonight's game against the Titans. It'll be the 2nd straight game he has missed with his injured knee. DE Jabaal Sheard is active, however. He arrived questionable with knee and "teeth" issues but is good for regular IDP usage.

6:12pm EST 12/30/18

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Titans. He's totaled just 36 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks but remains a strong TD bet.

6:12pm EST 12/30/18

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Titans. He’s a strong fantasy play even at less than 100%. Hilton torched the Titans for a 9-155-2 line back in Week 11.

The Colts are "optimistic" about WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and TE Eric Ebron's (concussion) status for tonight's game against the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hilton is listed as questionable, but there's been no doubt that he'll play. We still don't have official word that Ebron passed through the concussion protocol, but he was trending that way on Friday. Despite the late kickoff, Ebron can be penciled into fantasy lineups.

Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Titans. Geathers missed practice all week after missing last week's game. The late kickoff means you can't wait for him in IDP lineups, if you were inclined to in the 1st place. Sheard sat out practice Friday and was listed with a "teeth" issue (whatever that means). He put in limited workouts the previous 2 days. Sheard matched his season high in playing time last week and seems like at least a solid bet to play. Of course, the late kickoff means you'll need to have an insurance option available if you plan to wait for him.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 17. Despite not practicing all week, he’s fully expected to play in Sunday night’s must-win game against the Titans. Consider Hilton a WR2 with upside for that one.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Titans. HC Frank Reich said Friday that Ebron just needs to meet with an independent neurologist to clear the final stage of the concussion protocol. We should get confirmation that he’s received full clearance by Sunday morning.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's already made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared for Sunday night's must-win game against the Titans. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Colts TE Eric Ebron sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against the Giants and will not return. He hauled in 3 of 5 targets for 28 yards before exiting. This is the 1st reported concussion of Ebron's career, which helps his chances of getting cleared for Week 17.
