Colts WR Hilton likely out 1-2 weeks

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is day-to-day with a bruised knee.

The Colts are planning to be without their No. 1 receiver for their Week 2 Monday night game against the New York Jets.

“It looks like he may miss some time,” head coach Chuck Pagano allowed Sunday night.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said Sunday that Hilton was diagnosed with a “really bad bruised” and the team would err on the side of caution for a few weeks.

Hilton’s official status could change by the weekend if he responds to treatment.

Hilton signed a five-year, $65 million contract extension with the Colts before the start of the season. He led the team in 2014 with 82 receptions for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns and had seven receptions for 88 yards Sunday in a loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Indianapolis added veteran Andre Johnson as a free agent, but he was targeted 10 times and totaled four catches for 24 yards in his Colts’ debut.
