Colts’ T.Y. Hilton remained sidelined due to calf injury Thursday

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will face a tough journey to get on the field in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Per Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk, Hilton is still nursing a calf injury and has not practiced for the last two weeks, missing the last two Colts games.

Not having Hilton on the field will be a major blow to an already depleted Colts receiver corps, with Devin Funchess barely returning to practice with a collarbone injury and Paris Campbell still dealing with a hand injury.

Indianapolis will be with wide receivers Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers and Marcus Johnson. This group will need to step up with the main players dealing with these injuries.

Despite the potential of not having Hilton on the field again, Indianapolis is encouraged to be getting quarterback Jacoby Brissett back from a knee injury sustained in Week 9.

Since not having Brissett and Hilton, the Colts are 0-2 with losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins, which did not help their case for a playoff bid. With Indy’s recent decline, the Houston Texans have vaulted themselves into first place.

Indianapolis currently stands at 5-4 and second place in the AFC South, but a loss to the 4-5 Jaguars would put the Colts in third place in what looks to be a tight division race down the line.

T.Y. Hilton has 32 receptions for 360 yards and five touchdowns on the season. He suffered his calf injury during a non-contact drill in practice on Oct. 30.
