This all could be precautionary to help ensure that Hilton is available on Sunday. No risk practicing him and potentially aggrevating an injury further. Hilton was also limited in practices on Wednesday and Thursday.
Hilton has become a crucial part of this offense and is the receiver role in their new version of the triplets with Andrew Luck at quarterback and Trent Richardson at running back.
“We know T.Y.’s a stud,” Luck said. “The one he caught on the right side before the end of the half (of last Sunday’s game) was something special. We know he’s a phenomenal football player.”
Last week he had a career day catching six passes for 124 yards.
“We knew we had to get him back involved,” Pagano said, via ESPN. “We made big plays and he made huge plays. It was good to see him get back and have the number of catches and big plays. He’s an explosive guy.”
