Reports: Colts' Hilton, Texans' Fuller expected to play

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton "believes he's good to go" for Thursday night's road game against the Houston Texans, according to an NFL Network report.

Hilton did not practice all week with a calf injury that has kept him out of the last three games, but the team doesn't "have any issue" with him playing without practicing, per the report. The report adds the Texans expect Hilton to play.

Hilton, who turned 30 last week, has been a thorn in the Texans' side, totaling 82 catches for 1,519 yards and 10 touchdowns across 15 career regular-season meetings. He also had five receptions for 85 yards in the Colts' playoff win in Houston in January.

Isolated to seven career regular-season meetings in Houston, Hilton has 933 receiving yards (133.3 per game) and seven touchdowns. He's seeking his third consecutive game at NRG Stadium with at least 175 receiving yards.

The Texans will also have a key wideout back from injury, as ESPN reports Will Fuller is expected to play despite a hamstring issue sustained in Week 7 during the teams' first meeting of the season in Indianapolis.

Fuller has missed three games since and was limited in practice this week.

The Texans and Colts are tied atop the AFC South at 6-4, with the Colts holding the tiebreaker by virtue of their 30-23 victory in Week 7.
