Receiver T.Y. Hilton still has a chance to prove owner Jim Irsay wrong.
“A game-time decision depending on how I feel,” Hilton told reporters on Thursday. “I’ll talk to [coach Chuck Pagano] about it and see where I go from there.”
Pagano separately was asked if he has optimism that Hilton will be able to play.
“A lot,” Pagano said. “A lot.”
If Hilton, who didn’t practice Thursday, plays against the Jets, he could be covered the entire game by cornerback Darrelle Revis. If Hilton doesn’t play, Revis could then try to take away receiver Andre Johnson.
