Colts getting healthier, as T.Y. Hilton, Vontae Davis, Dwayne Allen practice

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts could have some key players available for Sunday’s game at Green Bay.

Receiver T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday and cornerback Vontae Davis (concussion) wore a red non-contact jersey while being a limited participant. Davis still is going through the concussion protocol.

“I know that from an injury standpoint, from what went down on Sunday [against Kansas City], we’ve got to manage him,” Colts defensive coordinator Ted Monachino said. “As long as we can keep him out of the fray from a contact standpoint, he can continue to get good work. He’s not getting the total number of snaps that he normally gets. He’s not getting snaps in all periods, but I do think Vontae showed [Thursday] that he’s prepared to run around and that he’s prepared to cover. We’ve still got to continue to evaluate him as we go through the week because he’s not completely off the protocol.”

The Colts badly need Davis to help try to slow down Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has completed 72.1 percent of his passes over the last three games after getting off to a slow start this season.

Hilton wasn’t the only key player to be a full participant in practice Thursday. Defensive lineman Henry Anderson (knee), offensive lineman Denzelle Good (knee) and receiver Chester Rogers (hamstring/foot) also practiced.

Davis, tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) and linebacker Curt Maggitt (ankle) were limited participants.

Safety Mike Adams (groin), offensive linemen Jack Mewhort (triceps) and Joe Reitz (concussion) were key players who did not practice.
