Roundup: Colts remove T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) from NFI list

T.Y. Hilton is ready for action.

The Indianapolis Colts removed the receiver from the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

The 30-year-old wideout had been dealing with a mild hamstring issue.

His stint on the NFI list predictably didn't last long, but given the Pro Bowl wideout's injury history -- six games missed last season -- it was notable.

With Philip Rivers in town, getting Hilton back on the field before practices begin full-bore is good news for an Indy offense that is counting on the chemistry between the veterans clicking quickly.

In a corresponding move, the Colts announced WR Malik Henry was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and waived.

Here are other stories Around The NFL is monitoring Wednesday:

  • The Jacksonville Jaguars hosted defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan, per the transaction wire, and he's expected to sign with the team in the "near future," NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. With multiple defensive linemen having opted out of this season, Jernigan has had many suitors, but the Florida native prefers to play in Jacksonville, Garafolo added.

Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy (knee) is off the active/physically unable to perform list and will return to practice. Jags defensive end/outside linebacker K'Lavon Chaisson has a minor hamstring issue and will be working off to the side with the team's performance staff, the team announced.
