The Colts may not have wide receiver T.Y. Hilton on the field for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Cowboys. Hilton is questionable to play and told reporters that he feels 50-50 about his chances of playing.
With both the Broncos and Patriots holding tie breakers and the AFC South already in their hands the Colts have little reason to push Hilton leading up to the playoffs. If Hilton cannot play then Reggie Wayne and Donte Moncrief would then likely be Indianapolis’ starters in two-wide sets.
Browns corner Joe Haden is questionable for Week 16 as well.
Much like the Colts, the Browns have little to gain by playing Haden though reports this week have suggested that Haden was more likely to play than not. He has not practiced much this week.
To the surprise of no one Eddie Lacy is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. Lacy is dealing with an eye issue as the result of his use of contacts. He may be wearing goggles for Sunday’s game but should have no trouble finding the field and putting up big numbers against a Buccaneers team that has given up.
The Bears are another team who has given up on the season. Jay Cutler the NFL’s highest paid player has been benched while kicker Robbie Gould continues to be ruled out. Jay Feel will again kick for the Bears who are looking at a major offseason reshuffle.
