Indianapolis Colts star wide receiver and fantasy stud T.Y. Hilton reportedly missed practice for a second straight day on Thursday, but that doesn't mean his fantasy owners should head for the hills. 


While Hilton is listed with a shoulder issue on Thursday's injury report, it's not uncommon to see veteran talents like him receiving extra rest at this point in the season. 

Hilton has posted strong performances in nearly every week since returning in Week 8. In fact, Hilton was playing so well after his return that he had to take a 'random' drug test following his best performance of the season in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. 

Hilton has dealt with a handful of hamstring and shoulder injury issues earlier this season but missed only two games (Week 5 and Week 6) as a result. Thursday's speedbump is likely nothing serious enough to keep Hilton out of this Sunday's matchup with the Houston Texans.
