Coach Chuck Pagano said on Monday that Hilton is in the league’s concussion protocol after reporting symptoms of the injury following Saturday’s game against the Rams. He was subsequently evaluated by team doctors and will be monitored in the coming days. Hilton had three catches for 44 yards during the game and was probably unlikely to play in this week’s preseason finale even without the head injury.
There’s no way to guess whether Hilton will be cleared in time to face the Bills in Week 1, but having two weeks to get it leaves time before the Colts will have to seriously ponder alternatives in the offense. Youngsters Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett would be next in line to step up. We have Dorsett as the Colts WR3 so he could get a huge boost in fantasy value if Hilton misses time.
