This Sunday is going to be a big day for the Indianapolis Colts as their newly acquired running back Trent Richardson will debut against the San Francisco 49ers.
Now, with Richardson being the good news the Colts have some other news that might not be as good. Right now both wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton are listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers.
Heyward-Bey is currently dealing with a shoulder problem and was outplayed by Hilton last week. Hilton is battling a groin injury and was limited in practice during the week.
Hilton could be in the lineup, but it will more than likely become a game time decision as the team doctors will want to see how he is the morning of. If he does start against the 49ers, he could get majority of the targets by starting quarterback Andrew Luck.
This combination of running backs of Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw are going to be exciting to watch on Sunday. So happy I have the NFL Sunday Ticket, I’ll be watching this game for sure.
ILB Kavell Conner (ankle), WR Darrius Heyard-Bey (ribs), WR T.Y. Hilton (groin), WR David Reed (quad), WR Reggie Wayne (shoulder) probable.
