T.Y. Hilton did not take part in practice today, according to Pro Football Talk. This adds to the speculation that he may not be fit enough to play for the Indianapolis Colts this week against the New York Jets.

The Colts don't play until Monday night, so the wide receiver still has plenty of time to rehabilitate himself from a knee injury he picked up against the Bills.

Hilton had to leave the game before the final whistle was blown on the Colts 27-14 loss to the AFC East team in the season opener.

It was believed initially that the injury could sideline the Pro Bowler for a couple of weeks. However, that was upgraded to the status of day-to-day evaluation later, and he could even play against the Jets.

The fact he is missing practices will not help his situation, as he is missing key play insertions that the Colts have as part of their game plan for the Jets. This means he may not get as many looks in the game if he plays.

Hilton signed a five-year, $65 million contract extension with the Colts before the start of the season. There is a lot of promise surrounding him as many Colts fans believe he can thrive and become a top receiver in the NFL thanks to his partnership with quarterback Andrew Luck.

He'll be hoping he isn't out for long so that he can live up to this expectation as quickly as possible.
