Indianapolis Colts are hoping to get T.Y. Hilton back soon

T.Y. Hilton, Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have been decimated by injuries on offense and their season is hanging in the balance. Among all of the injuries, Indianapolis is hoping to get T.Y. Hilton back on the field soon.

Back in Week 8, Hilton sustained a calf injury in the Colts’ 15-13 win over the Denver Broncos. The team’s No. 1 receiver was given a timetable of three to four weeks to recover from his injury.

Hilton was able to make his return against the Houston Texans in Week 12. Albeit, in a limited role, Hilton managed to play in only 25 offensive snaps for the Colts as they narrowly lost to the Texans by a score of 20-17.

Unfortunately, the veteran pass-catcher suffered a setback with his calf during practice and was ruled out for the team’s contest against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It was only the ninth game (fifth of this season) of Hilton’s career that he has had to miss due to injury.

By losing to the Titans on Sunday, the Colts are now 1-8 when Hilton is unable to suit up for them. Provided that, Indianapolis better hope they can get him back before their playoff aspirations wither away.

In Hilton’s seven starts in 2019, he’s been able to contribute 35 receptions for 378 yards and five touchdowns. Besides Hilton, the team also hopes they can get rookie Parris Campbell back in the coming weeks.

On Sunday, the Colts were limited on offense with only three active wide receivers after Chester Rogers’ knee injury. Therefore, a return of either Hilton or Campbell (or both) would be a welcome sight for the Colts.
