Shark Bites

Colts HC Frank Reich labeled WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) and TE Jack Doyle (hip) "week-to-week." That doesn't sound promising for their chances of playing against the Jets on Sunday. Hilton's absence would again leave Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant as Indy's top 2 WRs -- and low-end fantasy options in PPR leagues. And Doyle's absence would mean another big workload for TE Eric Ebron.

The Colts have activated WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) from IR. He had surgery for a disc issue just before the season and missed the first 5 games. We'd bet on Hilton working back to the #2 spot among Indianapolis wideouts but not pushing Michael Pittman aside.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Friday that he's "cautiously optimistic" WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) will be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend. It sounds like Hilton has been medically cleared and the team just wants to make sure he's back in game shape. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Hilton shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will practice on Wednesday for the 1st time since late-August surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. It's still unclear whether he'll play this weekend vs. the Texans. There's room for Hilton to carve out a sizable role in this Colts passing game, but we're not falling over ourselves to add him to fantasy rosters right now.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is expected back before mid-season but will “probably” miss more than 3 games, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Hilton, of course, is coming off surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. We’ll see about further updates on his exact return. His absence probably helps the outlooks for WRs Paris Campbell and Zach Pascal most.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had surgery this week to alleviate his disc issue, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. The team has placed the veteran wideout on IR, but GM Chris Ballard reportedly said they expect Hilton back "sooner than later." The IR stint means Hilton will miss at least 3 games, but it sounds like he might not be out much longer than that. Expect Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal to work as the top 3 WRs while Hilton is gone.
