Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We should get an update on Hilton’s status on Sunday morning. WR Parris Campbell (abdominal) is out for Week 5.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. It's worth noting that he played back in Week 3 despite only getting in a limited practice on Friday with his calf injury. And HC Frank Reich said that Mack wasn't medically ruled out of last week's game. Mack still has a shot to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts HC Frank Reich said MLB Darius Leonard will put in a limited practice Wednesday, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. There's no word yet on Leonard clearing the concussion protocol, but this progress bodes well for his potential Week 5 return. If Leonard is ready for Sunday's game at Kansas City, then LB Anthony Walker would likely return to playing about half the snaps and not being a big IDP help.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That's not a good start in his quest to return for Sunday night's showdown with the Chiefs. We'll get another update on Hilton tomorrow.

The Chargers have signed K Chase McLaughlin. K Mike Badgley is expected to miss "a couple [more] weeks" after suffering a setback with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So L.A. will turn to McLaughlin, an undrafted rookie who connected on 44 of 59 FG attempts (74.6%) at Illinois over the past 3 seasons.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that RB Marlon Mack wasn't knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Raiders by his ankle injury. It sounds like the Colts just opted for more Nyheim Hines in catch-up mode. That obviously adds game-script risk to Mack going forward. But it at least sounds like he'll be available for Sunday night's game in Kansas City (where game script could be a problem).

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered an ankle injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He was deemed questionable to return but never did. We'll look for an update on his status.

Colts DE Jabaal Sheard will make his season debut today against the Raiders. He's active for the 1st time following a summer knee injury that required surgery. Sheard still hasn't returned to full practice, and we wouldn't bet on a big role for him today. We'll be curious to track his participation and progress, though.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Raiders. That leaves WRs Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers atop the depth chart. Cain and Campbell are the most exciting options but are really only in play for DFS tournaments.

Colts MLB Darius Leonard will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against the Raiders with a concussion. Leonard has yet to return to practice since suffering the injury. Leonard's absence boosts the tackle upside of LB Anthony Walker, who becomes a full-time player. DE Jabaal Sheard is questionable, however, for the 1st time this year. Sheard had knee surgery in early August and has been out since. Indy listed him as a limited participant in practice leading up the Week 3, but Sheard remained inactive. He continued to be limited this week but now officially has a chance to play. We wouldn't use Sheard in IDP lineups until we see about his snap count and readiness.

The Colts ended up listing WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) as doubtful on the final Week 4 injury report. So it looks like he'll be held out of Sunday's game against the Raiders. That leaves Deon Cain, Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers as Indy's top 4 WRs. Cain led the group in snaps last week and is the best fantasy bet. But you should avoid this situation outside of DFS tournaments.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He didn't practice all week, but insider Mike Chappell notes that Hilton played in 4 games without practicing last year. We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Raiders this weekend, but he's certainly in danger of missing the game and won't be at 100% if he does suit up.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) didn't practice on Wednesday. We're not expecting him to practice much, if at all, this week after aggravating that quad injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Hilton could still play against the Raiders this weekend, but fantasy owners should have a backup plan lined up.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) was non-committal when asked about his Week 4 status on Tuesday. "If I can play, I'll play," he said. Hilton was limited in practice all last week with the quad injury and then aggravated it in the win over the Falcons. We'll track his practice participation over the next few days.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Falcons with a quad injury. This is presumably an aggravation of the issue that limited him in practice all week and had him listed as questionable. Hilton at least racked up 8 catches for 65 yards and a score before exiting. We'll look for an update on his status.

11:09am EDT 9/22/19

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week and was reportedly a game-time decision, so the quad issue is legitimate. It adds some risk to Hilton’s Week 3 outlook, but we’d feel fine keeping him in fantasy lineups.

11:09am EDT 9/22/19

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision, so he’s clearly not at 100%. Consider Mack a risk/reward RB2 in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport labels Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) a "game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Falcons. Rapoport adds that there's "optimism" Hilton will play, while ESPN's Adam Schefter calls it "likely" that Hilton plays. Still, this is the 1st time we've heard any concern over Hilton's status, despite the fact that he was limited in practice all week. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but check back around noon ET to make sure he's active.
