If the Indianapolis Colts want to keep their postseason dreams alive, then defeating the Dallas Cowboys is imperative. Unfortunately, the status surrounding T.Y. Hilton is still up in the air entering tomorrow’s matchup.
Hilton injured his ankle in last weekend’s victory over the Houston Texans, yet still finished with nine receptions for 199 yards. Considering that he’s already battled hamstring and chest injuries this season, the Colts are taking the cautious approach with their superstar wideout.
Although Hilton hasn’t practiced at all this week, Indianapolis is hopeful that he’ll recover well over the next 24 hours, per Colts reporter Mike Chappell. Nonetheless, he’s listed as questionable for the team’s game against Dallas.

In the event that Indianapolis is without its star wide receiver, Eric Ebron and Marlon Mack will need to have huge performances on Sunday.
The Cowboys feature one of the best defenses in the NFL, as Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch are carrying the entire unit to new heights.
With Hilton’s decision most likely coming down to the wire, it’ll be worth monitoring his status for tomorrow.
