It's safe to say Indianapolis Colts star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton took an absolute beating on Sunday afternoon against the Houston Texans.


It certainly takes some grit to return to the same game after missing the majority of the first quarter with an apparent shoulder/chest injury, only to suffer a hamstring injury less than two quarters later. 

That's right, Hilton not only suffered one injury early Sunday but actually returned to sustain a hamstring issue in the fourth quarter that would ultimately rule him out for the rest of the day. 


A four-day turnaround before the Colts' next game on Thursday night against the New England Patriots is a tall order for both a healthy and effective start. 

Perhaps, the strangest thing about Sunday's matchup with the Texans was the fact that Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw for nearly 500 yards and four touchdowns without tossing a single one Hilton's way. 


The combination of Luck having so much success through the air and Hilton's double-injury sustained this weekend certainly doesn't bode well for the veteran wide receiver's stock moving forward this season.
