Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. Hilton was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go for a tough matchup against the Vikings.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (back) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. It looks like Hilton will be able to play against the Jets. Thursday is probably just a day of rest since the Colts play on Monday night.

Hilton injured his back on Thanksgiving and the good news is he's had some extra time off. He did not practice on Monday, according to reports. The bad news is this is a Monday night game against the Jets, so owners will have to save a spot for Hilton in their lineup or at least have a backup plan.
There probably won't be a miracle recovery in Indianapolis this week. Andrew Luck, who was placed in the concussion protocol on Monday, will probably not be healthy in time for the Colts' Thanksgiving game against the Steelers.
Asked on a conference call when the Colts found out Andrew Luck wasn't playing, T.Y. Hilton said, "we found out in the team meeting room when he wasn't there. Coach brought it to our attention." Talked about wanting to "win for him."

The team announced that the quarterback is in the concussion protocol.
Moncrief is the possession receiver the Colts lacked while he was out because he can go get the ball in coverage in the middle of the field or in the end zone. He's tied for seventh on the Colts in receptions with 14 and he's fifth in receiving yards. He has three touchdown receptions while only playing four games this season. You can expect Luck to look for Moncrief even more now that he's healthy.
Moncrief said he and Luck spend ample time working on back-shoulder catches during the individual portion of practice. The play where Moncrief caught his touchdown against the Packers was supposed to be a run, but Luck called an audible when he noticed the way the safety was "tilted," which left the throw open to the backside for Moncrief. This could potentially be a good sign of things to come for Moncrief owners.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Hilton’s health will be closely monitored this week, though he was a “full go” on Thursday, so it looks good for Week 9.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Hilton’s health will be closely monitored this week. He injured his hamstring in Week 8 but returned to the game. He was “reluctant to commit” to playing in Week 9 per Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star. If he has to sit, Donte Moncrief would get a bump, while Phillip Dorsett and Chester Rogers would become decent dart throws.

Moncrief’s return gives the Colts some size and also a possession receiver for Luck to turn to. Moncrief injured his shoulder in the first half of their game against Denver in Week 2.
“He is a heck of a player,” offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said. “He can catch the ball down the field, he is good in the short game. He is a big, strong guy that can make plays on top of guys even when he is covered.”
Luck threw for 353 yards with no interceptions against the Tennessee Titans without Moncrief and Dorsett. The quarterback could be even more effective with healthy group of receivers while facing a Kansas City team that only has eight sacks on the season.
