Things change for Hilton and the Colts when Luck doesn't play. The sixth-year receiver, who led the NFL in receiving yards (1,448) last season, doesn't have the same impact on games without Luck.
That’ll have to change if the Colts expect to have any kind of success while Luck (shoulder) remains out. Hilton and the rest of the skill position players will be catching passes from quarterback Scott Tolzien for the time being.
Hilton has averaged the same yards per catch (15.6) with Luck as he has without him during the 10 regular-season games the quarterback has missed in his career, the story said. Where the drop-off comes for Hilton is in receptions, targets, receiving yards and touchdowns. He’s had only one game with at least 100 yards in games Luck didn’t play.
