The Indianapolis Colts will have star receiver T.Y. Hilton in the lineup Monday night for their must-win game against the New Orleans Saints.

Hilton was officially listed as active early Monday evening, less than two hours before game time.

Hilton hasn’t played since Nov. 21. He’s been dealing with a calf injury that has been slow to heal, and even this past week the receiver has been limited in practice with the injury.

Appearing in seven games so far this year, the star receiver has caught 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns. If he can play without any physical limitations on Monday night, then the Colts will have a much better chance of pulling off an upset win and staying alive in the playoff race.
