Bad news is being reported for our Indianapolis Colts. It appears that Jacoby Brissett will have to find a new favorite target as Frank Reich told reporters that the team believes star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will be out for the next three to four weeks.
Frank Reich on TY Hilton: "With the information that we have, generally speaking, it's a 3-4 week injury."— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) November 1, 2019
Significant blow for the Colts. Besides the QB, Hilton is the most irreplaceable player on this team.
Reich also said that a temporary stint on injured reserve hasn’t been discussed as an option at this point. If there is a positive in any of this, it is that the team isn’t considering this option.

The Colts upcoming stretch of games are largely considered the easiest stretch of games on their schedule, however losing a player like Hilton will undoubtedly make those games a little closer than they would have been otherwise. Hopefully someone like Zach Pascal can step up in a big way.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
