Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call Monday with the media and gave several updates.

Starting running back Marlon Mack suffered a hand injury against the Jaguars which knocked him out the game. Frank Reich confirmed to the media that Mack has fractured his hand and has had surgery. The injury will likely knock Mack out for several weeks, but the loss of him is slightly softened by Jonathan Williams coming off a huge performance and the return of Jordan Wilkins from injury.

Frank Reich said that Khari Willis is in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Texans. Willis has been a star this year. He's by far the best rookie out of the 2019 Colts draft class, and now a starter at safety. Willis being out likely means Clayton Geathers, who hasn’t been playing well all year, will start again.

Frank Reich gave an update on TY Hilton, who has been out the last few weeks. Hilton’s rehab has been ramped up this week due to him making huge progress. Hilton seems like he could be very close to playing this week, and the Colts will need him in a huge division match-up Thursday. Hilton gets so much attention from opposition's defense even if he doesn’t get the ball.

Hilton might not be the only wide receiver making a comeback from injury. Reich gave an update on Devin Funchess, who is only a few steps away from returning. Funchess seems to be just waiting for his collarbone to fully heal, then he will hit the field. Funchess, like Hilton, will be a huge lift to the Colts offense and receiver group.
