Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report and will play against the Texans on Thursday night. That puts a wrench in the plans of anyone who was hoping to use RB Jonathan Williams. It's completely unclear how early-down work will be divvied between Williams and Wilkins -- and Nyheim Hines figures to dominate passing-down snaps.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Texans. He was listed as a full-go on Wednesday's estimated practice report, so we're expecting Ebron to play. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow night.

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 TE Eric Ebron missed Tuesday's practice and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. We didn't notice him get dinged in last weekend's win over the Jaguars, so he might just be getting some rest on the short week. Check back tomorrow for another update.

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 QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) practiced all week and will start Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. That’s good news for Indianapolis’ skill-position guys, but Brissett is just a mid-range QB2 vs. Jacksonville’s 18th-ranked QB defense.

Colts WR Devin Funchess will return to practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a collarbone fracture in the season opener, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Funchess landed on IR after Week 1 but could be ready to return with QB Jacoby Brissett for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Funchess would return to a WR corps that's still missing T.Y. Hilton and rookie Parris Campbell. We'll watch his progress this week.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) will be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, HC Frank Reich said. Barring a setback, Brissett should be back for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. That's good news for the entire offense after QB Brian Hoyer struggled vs. Miami last week.

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 QB Jacoby Brissett will miss Sunday’s game against Miami. Brian Hoyer will make the start while Brissett rests an MCL sprain. Hoyer’s a risky fantasy option, but a matchup with the Dolphins puts him on the deep league radar.

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 QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) is a game-time decision for this weekend’s tilt with the Dolphins, HC Frank Reich said Friday. Brissett got in 3 limited practices this week. Colts-Fins doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, so hopefully we get an update on this situation on Sunday morning. QB Brian Hoyer will draw the start if Brissett is out.

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all is an encouraging sign. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but Brissett definitely has a shot to play against the Dolphins this weekend.
