If you’re counting on Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton to get you over the hump in your fantasy football playoffs, you might want to look elsewhere. Hilton has been sidelined with a calf injury, and on Wednesday he told the media he’s not sure if he’ll play again this season, according to reporter Kevin Bowen.

Hilton injured his calf in Week 8, returned in Week 12, and missed Week 13. The Colts are back at practice on Wednesday to get ready for Week 14 vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but his comments suggest he won’t be playing this weekend.

Zach Pascal remains the No. 1 receiver, and the team will hope to get Parris Campbell back in light of Chester Rogers’ season-ending injury last weekend. The Bucs are the worst team in the NFL against wide receivers, which opens the door for a big game from Pascal and whomever else might get a starting nod.
