INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts will be without their top wide receiver in Sunday’s crucial Week 13 home matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
General manager Chris Ballard told reporters today that T.Y. Hilton has suffered a setback with his calf injury, and will not play on Sunday. He is now considered week-to-week.
Hilton initially suffered his calf injury during a non-contact portion of practice on Oct. 30, and missed the Colts’ next three games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars. He returned to the lineup in a limited capacity last Thursday night against the Houston Texans, playing 25 offensive snaps and logging three receptions for 18 yards in Indy’s 20-17 loss at NRG Stadium.
While the hope was Hilton could possibly take on a larger role this Sunday against the Titans, he suffered a setback with his calf injury on Wednesday and was subsequently ruled out, Ballard said.
The Colts (6-5) will continue to turn to Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Marcus Johnson and Ashton Dulin at the wide receiver position against the Titans (6-5). There’s also a chance rookie Parris Campbell could make his return to the lineup after missing two games with a fractured right hand; Campbell was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
The Colts also have wide receiver Chad Williams on their practice squad if needed.
