Indianapolis Colts put Moala on injured reserve, survive scare as Hilton goes down at workout

Share/Save/Bookmark

INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts lost defensive end Fili Moala with a season-ending knee injury Wednesday, then survived another scare with receiver T.Y. Hilton.

It's the third straight year Moala has finished the season on injured reserve. In March, the defensive end re-signed with Indianapolis after posting a career-best 26 tackles. He also had 1 1/2 sacks and fumble recovery in 2013 but landed on IR with a knee injury just before the playoffs started.

The scare came when Hilton fell to the ground during a light workout and came up clutching his right leg. A few minutes later, he got up, stretched out and eventually returned to practice. He told reporters he was OK.

To replace Moala, Indy signed 6-foot-4, 280-pound defensive end Gannon Conway, an undrafted rookie.
