Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is going through concussion protocol, according to the team. It's believed Hilton suffered the injury during Saturday's preseason game, though it wasn't immediately announced. (Source: Kevin Bowen on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: This is certainly concerning news for fantasy owners. It's unclear where Hilton is at in the protocol, but it's likely the early stages considering he played Saturday. It's unclear if this will impact the start of Hilton's season. Concussions are not only a risk to linger, but players can miss more extended time during repeat occurrences. This makes this a concerning situation now and into the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: After receiving a contract extension this offseason, he will remain the top option in this offense and is a constant speed threat on the outside. He is a low-end WR1 with a capped ceiling based on the arrival of Andre Johnson. Do not expect more than last year's numbers.
