Austin Collie Injury: Latest on WR’s Week 1 Status, T.Y. Hilton Reps and More
Posted By Adam Wells On August 30, 2012 @ 2:16 pm In Colts News | No Comments
Thanks to a vicious hit from Pittsburgh ’s Larry Foote in the preseason that left Collie with at least his third concussion in less than two years, his status for the September 9 opener against Chicago  is very much up in the air.
“He’s doing well,” Pagano said. “Again, he’s day-to-day. We’re keeping a close eye on him. But he feels great and should be ready to go by the opener.”
With Collie being unable to play in preseason action, rookie T.Y. Hilton has emerged as a possible replacement. He has had a strong run this preseason with nine receptions for 116 yards in three games.
The problem with Hilton, like Collie, is his history with injuries. He left the team’s third preseason game against Washington  with a shoulder injury.
Considering how well Hilton has played this preseason, Hilton could be the No. 2 option for the Colts when the season starts, depending on what happens with Collie.
We will keep you updated on all the latest news surrounding Collie’s status for Week 1, as well as what it means for Hilton and other receivers on the Colts roster.
