Hilton (ankle) was not spotted at the first day of Colts minicamp, Andrew Walker of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's no cause for alarm yet, as Hilton was a full participant during the team's OTAs in late May. The star wideout shouldn't be in danger of missing Week 1 because of the current issue, but it's still worth monitoring to ensure it doesn't become something more. There's still over a month before training camp fires up, so it's quite possible Hilton is just resting the ankle to prevent reinjury.

Hilton (ankle) was a full participant in OTAs on Tuesday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

As of three weeks ago, it was reported that Hilton was still not 100 percent after playing through ankle sprains for much of last season. But reports out of the first day of OTAs in Indianapolis are implying Hilton is extremely close to full strength. Given these are just voluntary workouts, the Colts likely won't push the star wideout too far, but it bodes well for Hilton's health heading into training camp.

Hilton (ankle) said he is still working his way back to full strength, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton opted for rest rather than surgery after playing through high- and low-ankle sprains for much of 2018. He said he feels much better than he did a few months ago, but he also acknowledged uncertainty regarding his workload during spring practices, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. Locked in as the unquestioned No. 1 option in a prolific passing attack, Hilton should be healthy for the start of training camp even if he's limited throughout May and June.

Hilton will not require surgery to address the ankle issue he played through of late, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Colts' season done following Saturday's 31-13 playoff loss to the Chiefs, Hilton -- who had been dealing with both a high and low sprain in the same ankle -- will now be able to rest and rehab his ankle, a process that could take a few months, but will allow him to heal up before the time the team next takes the field together. The 29-year-old wideout, who finished up the regular season with 76 catches (on 120 targets) for 1,270 yards and six TDs in 14 games, is under contract with Indianapolis through the 2020 season.

Hilton (ankle) caught four of 10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's divisional-round loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton was unable to connect with QB Andrew Luck throughout much of the game, but was able to haul in a 29-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to keeps the Colts' hopes alive. Hilton's ankle issues were apparent as he was seen limping throughout the contest. The 29-year-old said after the game he's been battling through a high and low-ankle sprain over the last few weeks, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports, and unfortunately it finally appeared to catch up to him somewhat Saturday. Hilton was still one of the top receivers in the league during 2018, catching 76 of 120 targets for 1,270 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games.

Despite not practicing this week, Hilton (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton has practiced just once since Week 15, yet has not missed a game in that span, en route to racking up 19 catches (on 32 targets) for 369 yards over his last four outings. Indy's top wideout take aim this weekend at a Kansas City defense that allowed an average of 273.4 passing yards per game during the regular season. Only the Bengals allowed more.

Hilton (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton has been dealing with an ankle issue that has greatly limited his practice time since Week 15 of the regular season, but the Colts' top wideout hasn't missed any games since then. We don't expect that pattern to change when it comes to Saturday's divisional-round matchup versus the Chiefs.

Hilton didn't participate in Tuesday's walk-through due to an ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

Despite having this particular issue impact him in practice since Week 15 prep, Hilton has suited up in four consecutive contests, compiling 19 catches (on 32 targets) for 369 yards and no touchdowns. For the most part, he's looked like himself on gamedays, but coach Frank Reich and the Colts training staff are taking no chances with Hilton as they prepare for a divisional-round matchup at Kansas City on Saturday.

Hilton (ankle) caught five of 10 targets for 85 yards in Saturday's 21-7 playoff win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton had a busy first half with four receptions and 65 yards, but with the Colts up 21-0 at halftime Andrew Luck had only 10 pass attempts during the second half. Still, it was a solid game for Hilton, who entered the afternoon questionable with the ankle issue. The 29-year-old is without a touchdown since Week 11, but has an appetizing matchup against Kansas City's porous pass defense in the divisional round next week.

Hilton (ankle) is listed as active Saturday at Houston, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to practice in advance of this contest, Hilton entered the weekend as questionable. There is recent precedent for Hilton playing with no practice reps, as he did so Week 17 against the Titans, turning 81 percent of the snaps on offense into two catches (on six targets) for 61 yards. Hilton has found his most success as a pro against the Texans, who have allowed him to rack up career-high marks in receptions (76), targets (122), yards (1,445) and touchdowns (nine) in 14 matchups. On this occasion, he'll attempt to exploit a defense that ranked 28th versus the pass (260.4 yards per game) in 2018.
