Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Frank Reich said he’s “feeling somewhat optimistic” about Hilton’s status but added that he’ll be a game-time decision. The good news for fantasy owners is that we’ll find out whether he’s active by noon ET. If he suits up, Hilton will be worth using in most fantasy lineups as a WR2 with upside.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. He had been serving as Indy’s #2 WR, a job that now figures to go to Ryan Grant. He’s still not a recommended fantasy play, though.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back, illness) remained sidelined on Thursday. Both guys missed practice last Wednesday but returned on Thursday. The Athletic's Stephen Holder believes that it was the illness that kept Ebron out today. Holder also expects Hilton to play against the Texans this weekend. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Neither guy practiced last Wednesday before playing their usual roles against the Jaguars. Both should be fine for this Sunday's game vs. the Texans, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts LB Darius Leonard is active for today’s game against the Jaguars despite dealing with shoulder and knee issues. Don’t even think about removing him from IDP lineups.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is active for today’s game against the Bucs. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Funchess will play on a “limited basis.” So despite the plus matchup, consider him just a WR4.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He’ll continue to operate as Indy’s lead ball-carrier but is a low-end RB2 in the tough matchup.

The Colts expect RB Marlon Mack to play today against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mack put in full practices Thursday and Friday but will need to gain clearance to complete the concussion protocol before he can take the field. We'll update his status closer to game time.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess is expected to return today from the back injury that cost him Week 12, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Funchess endured sluggish production over the past 4 games he played and isn't a terrific option, but he's on the radar at least vs. a terrible Bucs defense.

Update: Rapoport adds that Funchess will play on a "limited basis" today. "The team will work him back slowly." We'd try not to use Funchess in fantasy lineups, despite the plus matchup.

Colts LB Darius Leonard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with shoulder and knee injuries. He put in a full practice Friday, though, after progressing from a missed practice Wednesday to a limited Thursday workout. We'd bet on Leonard playing at Jacksonville, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He put in full practices and Thursday and Friday and just needs to gain clearance from an independent neurologist. Mack can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now. Just check back around noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday, so it looks like he’s not quite at 100%. But Hilton remains a solid fantasy play in the red-hot Colts passing game.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (back) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s safe to fire up as a high-end TE1 with Jack Doyle out.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Ron Rivera said Friday that he’s “optimistic” about Funchess’ status. If active, he’ll be no better than a risky WR3. But Funchess’ return would make WR Curtis Samuel impossible to trust in fantasy lineups. WR D.J. Moore remains a WR2 with upside.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (back) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That at least gives him a chance to play against the Bucs this weekend. We'll see what Funchess is able to do tomorrow.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's now trending toward getting cleared for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. An active Mack will remain the Colts' lead ball-carrier and a fine RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) returned to practice on Thursday. Hilton was limited; Ebron a full-go. Both guys are on track to play against the Jaguars this weekend.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) was back on the practice field on Thursday. He'll likely be listed as limited and still needs to gain final clearance -- but this at least gives him a shot to play against the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and isn't looking like a good bet to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd leave the backfield to Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Both guys appeared to make it out of last weekend's game against the Dolphins healthy, so we're guessing this is more of a rest day. But check back tomorrow for another update.
