Shark Bites

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.

Colts LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. S Mike Mitchell (calf) is active after hitting the day questionable. He should start in place of the inactive S Clayton Geathers. Mitchell is an option but will carry risk for IDP owners.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He got in a limited practice on Friday, which is more than he did last week before posting a 5-85 line vs. Dallas. There’s still more risk than usual here, but Hilton belongs in most season-long lineups.

The Colts "hope" WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) will play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hilton played through the ankle injury last weekend and put in a limited practice this Friday -- which is 1 more practice than he got in last week. We're fully expecting him to play and will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

The Colts have ruled S Clayton Geathers out for Sunday's game against the Giants because of a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. S Mike Mitchell remains behind Geathers on the depth chart -- after filling in at both safety spots earlier this week -- and would likely start in Geathers' place. Mitchell is questionable, though, with a calf issue that limited his practices Wednesday and Thursday. Mitchell returned to a full Friday workout and is an option if active, but he'll carry some downside risk.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He got in a limited practice on Friday, which is actually more than he did last week. Hilton is fully expected to play on Sunday and will be a borderline WR1.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday. Of course, he didn't practice at all last week -- and then went out and tallied 85 yards against the Cowboys. He didn't suffer a setback in that one as far as we know and should be available for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Colts S Clayton Geathers is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He arrived questionable but looks fine for normal IDP usage. Geathers has been managing physical issues all season.

11:12am EST 12/16/18

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week and was a true game-time decision, so he’ll be operating at far less than 100%. That makes Hilton a risk/reward WR2 for Week 15.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) has a "good shot" to play against the Cowboys today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hilton is still considered a game-time decision, but it sounds like he's trending in the right direction. We'll get his official status around 11:30 am ET.

Colts S Clayton Geathers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Geathers has for weeks been following odd practice schedules, often sitting out Wednesday and Friday workouts. Geathers put in just a limited practice Thursday this week, though. That marks the 1st time since Week 6 (which he missed) that Geathers finished the week without any full practices. He even put in 1 full practice in Week 7 before missing that game as well. We'll check Geathers' status Sunday morning.

Colts WR Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’d take on a bigger role against the Cowboys on Sunday if T.Y. Hilton can’t go. But even then, Inman would be a desperation fantasy play.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys after missing practice all week. Hilton has been playing through injuries for the past few weeks. But this ankle injury is new, and he had been getting in at least a limited practice or 2. We’ll find out Hilton’s official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward WR2.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He followed this routine last week before torching the Texans -- although it's worth noting that this is a different injury. We're still expecting Hilton to play against the Cowboys this weekend, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. The Colts have been limiting his early-week reps for a while now. Hilton should be ready for this weekend's game against the Cowboys.

Colts DT Margus Hunt (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP option.

11:12am EST 12/9/18

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be at 100% today. That adds some risk to Hilton’s outlook, but he remains a high-upside WR2.

Colts HC Frank Reich told NFL Network's James Palmer that WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) will play against the Texans today. The decision was made before pregame warmups, so it seems like Hilton's shoulder is in better shape than originally thought. He belongs in fantasy lineups as a high-upside WR2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport would consider it a "major surprise" if Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) doesn't play against the Texans today, "based on his history and the importance of the game." Hilton is officially a game-time decision and won't be close to 100% if he suits up. That obviously adds risk to his fantasy stock. But there's also big upside against a Houston squad that he usually torches.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (back) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Ebron is a high-end TE1 play vs. a Texans defense that’s struggled against TEs all season.
