Reports: Colts WR T.Y. Hilton to miss start of season

Injured Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is expected to miss the start of the regular season, multiple outlets reported Sunday.

ESPN reported that the 31-year-old veteran is being treated for an “upper back/neck injury.” The Athletic said Hilton got hurt in practice on Wednesday and will miss “multiple weeks,” but it is not considered a season-ending injury.

Indianapolis opens the season at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 12.

A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Hilton is entering his 10th season with the Colts. He signed a one-year deal for $8 million in March.

Hilton caught 56 passes for 762 yards and five touchdowns in 15 starts last season.

For his career, the 2012 third-round pick has 608 catches for 9,360 yards and 50 touchdowns in 133 games (112 starts), all with the Colts.

Hilton was a Pro Bowl performer every year from 2014 to 2017, missing just one game in that span while averaging 75 catches for 1,221 yards and 5.5 touchdowns. He led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2016.
