Donte Moncrief is hurt; T.Y. Hilton is ticked; Phillip Dorsett is ready. Week 3 should be fun.

That’s where they’re at, these Indianapolis Colts receivers, four days before they try to avoid the franchise’s first 0-3 start since the dreadful 2011 season. The news Wednesday — besides the small fact that the star quarterback sat out practice for the first time in 2016 – is that Moncrief, the team’s biggest and most versatile wideout, will miss 4-6 weeks with a fractured scapula. Ouch.

Just as the team returns a few key cogs to the defense, it loses one of the offense’s top weapons. This season, so far, in a nutshell.

Hilton calls Moncrief his “little brother.” He was the first Moncrief texted with the news. “I got you,” T.Y. shot back. “We’re gonna hold it down 'til you get back.”

He'd better. Because it’s on him. So far, the Colts’ $65 million receiver isn’t playing like a $65 million receiver, and he doesn’t need to be reminded of this. He knows. Ten catches on 23 targets and no touchdowns? That won’t cut it. Not for a team that needs a win Sunday against the San Diego Chargers in the worst way.
