T.Y. Hilton (sprained foot) is active for Colts


Indianapolis Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton is set to play in Sunday afternoon's tilt with the Denver Broncos.

The Colts' receiver, who had been battling a sprained foot all week, was listed as active by the team.

Hilton, the Colts' top pass-catcher has 38 receptions on 81 targets, compiling 621 yards and three touchdowns.

A struggling Andrew Luck would have had more trouble if his speedy target sat against the Broncos' lockdown secondary.

New offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, taking over for a fired Pep Hamilton, already has a tough task facing the NFL's No. 1 defense. Having Hilton on the field will certainly make things a little easier for him.
