As if the 24-8 deficit wasn't bad enough, the Indianapolis Colts are also currently without their number one wide receiver.  T.Y. Hilton is in the locker room getting examined currently.

CBS' TV cameras caught Hilton sitting on the sidelines by the bench getting his left leg looked at by trainers around the knee.  His return is officially questionable as he is in the locker room getting x-rays on his left knee.

That's about all we know right now, as it was unclear when the injury happened or any extent of the injury.  All we know is what we saw on the TV cameras and heard from the team.  Hilton's return is questionable as he's getting x-rays on his knee.  That obviously doesn't sound great.

Hilton is the team's number one wide receiver, and playing without him will make it tougher for any Colts comeback in this game.  They're only two possessions down, but if they have to play without their top receiver it makes it that much tougher.  We'll keep you updated on Hilton's status as we hear more.

UPDATE: T.Y. Hilton is back on the sidelines, so that has to be a good sign at least.

UPDATE: Hilton has been ruled out for the rest of the game.  He has a big ice wrap on his left knee.

UPDATE: Hilton's X-ray was negative and it is just a knee bruise, but owner Jim Irsay said that the receiver still might miss a few weeks.
