The Colts got some great news about 90 minutes before kickoff. They will have two of their playmakers out there against the Texans.
The Colts have been riddled with injuries all season long. Tonight is a short week where they were facing the possibility of missing all of their reliable playmakers. But we have learned that they will at least two of those guys active for tonight’s game.
T.Y. Hilton is active and will play against the Texans. This is a massive development for the Colts. He has missed the last three games with a calf injury that was non-contact. The fact that they get him back for this game opens up all kinds of possibilities in the passing game.
Eric Ebron is also active. He was suffering this week with an ankle injury, but it has healed up enough where he can give it a go. Ebron hasn’t been super effective lately because of a lack of targets. But having Hilton out there should help him out.
The biggest name that is inactive for tonight’s game is Rock Ya-Sin. Ya-Sin had an ankle injury that just didn’t get good enough to play. Same goes for Shakial Taylor, who is also out because of an ankle injury. It’s a good thing the defense has Pierre Desir back.
Le’Raven Clark will actually be active for once tonight, as will Quincy Wilson. The other four inactives are Chad Kelly, Trevon Coley, Parris Campbell, Marlon Mack, and Khari Willis. Campbell has been making progress, but probably won’t return until next week.
Having Hilton back in the lineup is massive for this team, and hopefully it propels them to victory tonight.
