Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton got banged up a couple of times during Sunday’s overtime loss to the Texans and that’s likely to leave the team shorthanded in Week Five.

The Colts have to go to New England to take on the Patriots on Thursday night and head coach Frank Reich said after Sunday’s loss that his outlook is “probably not good” for the short week.

Hilton left the game in the first half with a chest injury he picked up on a 40-yard gain. He returned from that injury, but left again after hurting his hamstring and did not return to the game before it ended.

Hilton had four catches for 115 yards overall on Sunday. Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant, who would be in line for bigger roles if Hilton is out, combined for 13 catches and 149 yards.

UPDATE 6:19 p.m. ET: Hilton isn’t ruling anything out. He said, via George Bremer of CNHI Sports Indiana, “I’m a fighter” when asked about his chances of playing on Thursday.

    To be Frank, I’m not surprised! The outlook of any HC’s who pointlessly hands a divisional visitor a golden chance to an OT win probably isn’t good. But 5 days is too short to find another HC.

  2. Josh McDaniels gets Edelman back to go with a slowly integrating Josh Gordon and a what appears to be a rejuvenated run game and defense. Things may go badly for Indy Thursday night, considering all of the bad mouthing after they prematurely announced McDaniels as the head coach. Oh, and then there is that air pressure thingy with the balls….I feel a 40 burger coming on….in a short week no less. But that would be bad for the ratings, so look for lots of penalties against the Patriots Thursday night. Roger that…

  3. Loved the loss….
    They will be getting another one Thursday with or without TY…….
    Pats will had Edelman back & hopefully Hollister can finally get on the field & they can rest GRONK….

  4. “Hopefully we see another goofy fake punt from the Colts”

    Please use the correct terminology.

    The Colts version is the “Rusty Gate”

    Lolz

    Gronk is going into thursday listed as ‘questionable’. And really if they had even remotely needed him they would have had him to play to the end of the game yesterday. In the final quarter they were swapping out lots of guys. The only reason Brady took so long to come out is because he refuses. The reason Hoyer was searching up and down the sidelines for his helmet for so long was because Brady had hidden it and they couldn’t be sure he hadn’t thrown it into the crowd.
