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.

Hilton (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Frank Reich indicated Thursday, per George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin, that Hilton would have sat out a week or two down the stretch to heal up if the games weren't so important to the team's playoff chances. He has not practiced all week, but it seems highly unlikely he will miss the wild-card game after playing through the issue in previous weeks. Hilton and the Colts are very familiar with the playoff foe, squaring off against a Texans defense he's recorded nine catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns against in two previous meetings this season.

Hilton (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Practice absences have become the norm of late for Hilton. but there's little doubt that he'll suit up Saturday's playoff game against the Texans. Look for the wideout to be officially listed as questionable for that contest upon the release of the Colts' final injury report of the week.

Hilton (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton was on the field for 64 of the Colts' 79 snaps on offense in Week 17's win over the Titans, en route to hauling in two of his six targets for 61 yards. With no reported setbacks in that contest, we'll assume that the wideout's practice reps are simply being managed as they were down the stretch during the regular season. There's still a solid chance, however, that the wideout will draw an official "questionable" designation for Saturday's wild-card matchup versus the Texans.

Hilton (ankle) is listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton played through his ankle injury with minimal practice participation the past three weeks, catching 14 of 22 targets for 284 yards in that stretch. He should be able to tough it out again for Saturday's wild-card game, but the pain could make it difficult to continue his impressive run of success against Houston. He roasted the Texans for 314 yards in two matchups during the regular season, despite missing the second half of the first meeting (Week 4) with a hamstring injury.

Hilton (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Though Hilton didn't practice this past week, he indicated that he planned to play in Sunday's win-or-go-home regular-season finale, so his active status is not surprising. The wideout has approached the Colts' last three games listed as questionable, only to subsequently suit up and produce at a high level, logging 21 catches for 422 yards on 28 targets in that span.

Hilton (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, is optimistic he'll be available to play, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

While dealing with a shoulder injury and his current ankle issue in December, Hilton has taken questionable designations into each of the past three weekends, only to suit up every time and produce at a high level over that stretch (21 receptions for 422 yards on 28 targets). His status once again won't be formally clarified until the Colts release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff, but it doesn't sound like there's much legitimate fear that Hilton will sit out with a playoff berth on the line. Top tight end Eric Ebron (concussion/knee) is also trending toward availability, so the Colts should have all their key playmakers on hand for the divisional showdown.

Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Titans after not practicing this week, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Normally a player going all week without practicing would be enough to deter fantasy players, but Hilton has made it clear that he plans to play in Sunday's win-or-go-home matchup against Tennessee. It's still worth confirming his status in advance of the Colts' 8:20 ET kickoff, but Hilton has toughed it out through his ankle woes of late and remained productive on gamedays in the process. Expect more of the same in Week 17.

Hilton (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Normally back-to-back missed sessions would be alarming, but Hilton has only practiced twice over the past three weeks, yet has been able to work effectively through his ankle issue on game-days. Moreover, Hilton indicated Wednesday that he plans to play in Sunday's game against the Titans and we don't doubt him. That said, it's still possible that Hilton could be officially listed as questionable for this weekend's win-or-go-home contest.
