Hilton making a splash in his rookie year

Posted: Updated:

T.Y. Hilton might be the second-best rookie on the Indianapolis Colts. He's still pretty special.

As Andrew Luck continues to chase NFL rookie records for a quarterback, the 5-foot-8, 183-pound receiver is becoming a chart-topper, too. He already has three 100-yard games this season, tied for the most by a Colts rookie with Andre Rison in 1989.

He needs only two TD catches in Indy's last five games to move into a tie for third on the franchise list, joining John Mackey and Austin Collie. On Sunday, he became the first player in franchise history to catch at TD pass and score on a punt return in the same game.

Hilton and the Colts are hoping that's just the start.
