Colts' Moore out vs. Saints; WR Hilton questionable
Indianapolis Colts cornerback Kenny Moore has been ruled out of Monday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has been deemed to be a game-time decision, the team announced Saturday.
Moore sustained an ankle injury during the third quarter of Indianapolis' 31-17 loss to Tennessee on Dec. 1. He sat out the Colts' 38-35 setback to Tampa Bay on Sunday and did not practice all week. Rock Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III and Quincy Wilson are expected to pick up additional snaps at outside cornerback in place of Moore, who has recorded 61 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two interceptions this season.
Hilton injured his calf on Oct. 27 and has played in only one of the Colts' six games since. In that time, Indianapolis (6-7) has gone 1-5 and fallen from AFC South leader to on the verge of playoff elimination. What's more, the Colts are 1-9 without Hilton since he entered the league in 2012. Hilton was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but he did not practice on Friday and is officially ruled as questionable to face the Saints (10-3).
Hilton, 30, has 35 catches for 378 yards and five touchdowns in seven games this season. He's averaging career-lows of 10.8 yards per reception and 54.0 yards per game. --Field Level Media
