UPDATE: Hilton is officially active for Monday Night Football in Week 15 vs. the New Orleans Saints.
The Indianapolis Colts will get wide receiver T.Y. Hilton back for their Week 15 showdown with the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The official inactive report arrives at 6:45 p.m. ET.
The receiver hasn’t played since Week 12 when he was on a pitch count with his calf injury. Coach Frank Reich said earlier in the week that if Hilton plays, he will be 100 percent and not on a pitch count. That’s good news for those who are thinking about playing him tonight.
The players who lose the most from his return are wide receivers Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson. Last week, both Johnson and Pascal had big games in a shootout with the Buccaneers, as they led the team in targets, yards and touchdowns with Hilton out. Hilton will likely see CB Marcus Lattimore the most, which could help Pascal or Johnson remain relevant this week, but the target pie just got a big piece lopped out onto Hilton’s plate.
