INDIANAPOLIS — It wasn't on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, but former Colts teammates Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton connected once again.

In a video posted to Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb's Twitter page Sunday morning, Luck and Hilton spoke out in support of social distancing and staying safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Hoosiers, let’s keep ourselves safe and stay smart here in Indiana," Luck, the retired Colts quarterback, said. "Please listen to Gov. Holcomb, our state health department and especially T.Y. Take care."

In the video, Hilton also said he hopes everyone is staying safe and being smart about staying home, which Holcomb ordered residents to do on March 23.

"It's the 'Ghost' just checking in, hoping everyone is being safe and being smart about staying home. Try your best to reach out to friends, family and support them through this tough time. Even support your local restaurants with to-go orders. Be safe, remember to wash your hands and go Colts. Love you, Colt Nation," Hilton said.

According to numbers released by the Indiana State Department of Health, 32 Hoosiers have died from the coronavirus, while 1,514 have tested positive.
