Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he's optimistic that Hilton will play this week.
Every game, all season
"He looked good. Still got two days," Pagano said of his star receiver, via Indy Sports Central's Mike Chappell.
It was the first practice of the week for the Colts' No. 1 receiver after leaving a Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the fourth quarter with a bruised knee. Despite the early exit, Hilton led Indy with seven receptions for 88 yards on 14 targets.
"Depends on how my knee reacts tomorrow." said Hilton, via the Indy Star. "It's a great thing we play Monday."
Getting an extra day of rest should help Hilton's availability Monday night. If Hilton isn't full-go, Andrew Luck will rely on Donte Moncrief and rookie Phillip Dorsett to fill his shoes alongside veteran Andre Johnson. Moncrief, it was said earlier in the week, could get the start to take pressure off the Dorsett.
