INDIANAPOLIS -- T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts receiver It was announced that Hilton, who sustained a quad injury last week while making his season debut, will be out of Sunday's game against San Francisco 49ers.

Hilton was injured midway through the fourth period of last Sunday's 31-3 win over the Houston Texans. He downplayed its severity after the game, but did not practice the rest of the week.

Frank Reich, Hilton's coach, said that it was unlikely that Hilton would play against San Francisco on Friday. However, the team wanted to know how Hilton felt Saturday.

Hilton signed a one year contract to be back with the Colts in the offseason. He will now miss six of the seven games because of injuries. After suffering a disc injury in training camp, he missed five of the first five games.

Parris Campbell, the foot injury suffered by Quarterback Carson Wentz earlier this week, has been placed on injured reserve. Zach Pascal and Michael Pittman Jr., second-year wide receivers, will be the 49ers' top two receivers.

Indianapolis (2-4), got some good news Saturday with Quenton Nelson, a three-time All Pro guard, being activated from the injured reserve. The No. Nelson was the 6th overall pick in 2018's NFL draft. Nelson had never missed an NFL match until he suffered a right high ankle strain in Week 3.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Nelson's 75.5% run-block rate ranks first among NFL guards. His 95% pass block success rate ranks third among all guards during the same period.

Safety Julian Blackmon was placed on IR to account for roster changes, while receiver Keke Coutee, and safety Josh Jones, were promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.
