The Colts head into this week’s matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a huge question mark regarding the status of T.Y. Hilton.
With many of the Colts’ key players already on injured reserve for the rest of the season, the last thing this team needed was an injury to their top receiver before they take on one of the league’s best teams at Lucas Oil Stadium.
T.Y. Hilton awoke from his slumber to gain 175 yards receiving with 2 touchdowns last week leading the Colts to a 20-14 win in Houston.
Hilton then popped up on Thursday’s injury report with a sore groin, and he has now been listed as limited for the Colts’ last two days of practice this week.

The NFL eliminated the “probable” designation on team’s injury reports, but it sounds like Hilton is more likely to play than not, even though he is listed as questionable.
We’ll keep you updated on his status if there is any news regarding his health before Sunday’s game kicks off.
John Simon was officially ruled out for the third straight game with a neck stinger. Losing Henry Anderson to injured reserve and continuing to play without Simon will give Indianapolis’ defensive line trouble against a talented Steelers offensive line.
Kamar Aiken also has been ruled out for this week’s game as he was unable to practice on Thursday and Friday with a hamstring injury. Chester Rogers will likely be asked to step up in his absence.
Quincy Wilson is listed as questionable with a knee injury. He’s been a healthy scratch for many games this season, so it remains to be seen whether his health will actually affect whether he’s activated on Sunday.
