Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports that the Colts say RB Marlon Mack is back to 100% health for the start of camp. That's noteworthy, given Mack missed last year with a torn Achilles' tendon. Of course, being 100% healthy does not necessarily equal being back to your original performance level. But this is a big step for the veteran back. Mack still can't hope to be more than the #3 RB on this year's Indy roster, but his return could leave Jordan Wilkins without a spot. A near full-strength Mack could also stress the workload for Jonathan Taylor.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is in quarantine after learning Friday that his girlfriend tested positive for COVID-19. That will keep him out for Sunday's game against the Titans, according to NFL protocol. It's just the latest unfortunate turn in a bumpy rookie season for Taylor. His absence leave more backfield snaps and touches for Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in an upside matchup for the offense overall.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says "don't be surprised" if RB Nyheim Hines gets the "bulk" of the Colts' carries against the Packers today. Hines is coming off a breakout game last week -- and it sounds like the Colts want to ride the hot hand. This still figures to be a fluid situation with RBs Jonathan Taylor and Jordan Wilkins in the mix, but Hines looks like the best fantasy play among the 3.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. The ankle isn't a concern, but Taylor is a shaky fantasy play after getting out-carried and out-produced by RB Jordan Wilkins last week. A matchup with a tough Ravens run defense doesn't help either.

Colts RBs Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and Jordan Wilkins (groin) put in full practices on Thursday. So it doesn't look like health will impact the distribution of touches in this backfield this weekend. We're guessing Taylor will get the start vs. the Ravens, but he figures to be on a short leash.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is dealing with "a little bit of an ankle injury," HC Frank Reich said Monday. This is the injury QB Philip Rivers alluded to in his post-game interview yesterday. Taylor mustered just 22 yards on 11 carries against a bad Lions run defense in Week 8, getting out-snapped and out-produced by RB Jordan Wilkins. We'll keep an eye on the rookie's health this week and see what we hear about Indianapolis' backfield plans.

Colts QB Philip Rivers said after Sunday's win over the Lions that RB Jonathan Taylor got "a little nicked up." The team never announced an injury -- but this might help explain why Jordan Wilkins ended up leading Indy's backfield in snaps and carries. We'll keep an eye on Taylor's status this week.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (calf) is active for today’s game against Bengals. He’ll continue to play a bit role behind RB Jonathan Taylor.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. He was limited on Wednesday but sidelined on Thursday and Friday. Wilkins carried 9 times in Weeks 2, 3 and 4 before toting it just once last Sunday. His absence would be a small boost to RB Jonathan Taylor.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is officially active for tonight’s game against the Texans. RB Jonathan Williams is expected to draw the start, leaving Wilkins as just a fantasy flier.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report and will play against the Texans on Thursday night. That puts a wrench in the plans of anyone who was hoping to use RB Jonathan Williams. It's completely unclear how early-down work will be divvied between Williams and Wilkins -- and Nyheim Hines figures to dominate passing-down snaps.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. That gives him a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Texans. It'd be a complete guess how the Colts would split carries between Wilkins and Jonathan Williams. Nyheim Hines is locked in as the primary pass-catching back. We'll get another update on Wilkins tomorrow.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins told reporters on Monday that his injured ankle "feels great" and that he expects to play against the Texans on Thursday night. Players tend to be over-optimistic about their injuries, so take this with a grain of salt. We'll see if Wilkins is able to practice on Tuesday. His availability would turn the Colts' backfield into a 3-man committee along with Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hand injury and won't return. RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is inactive today, leaving Indy with RBs Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a rib injury. He's averaged 3 carries per game this season, so his absence will mean just a bit more work for RB Marlon Mack.

Colts RB Marlon Mack's status for tonight's game against the Chiefs will be a game-time decision, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the "team will be cautious." That's worrisome for the fantasy outlook on Mack, who missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a full workout Friday. If you're waiting on him, then you'll need to have Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins or a decent option from the Chiefs or 49ers available as a fallback.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the first 2 workouts of the week. The Indianapolis media seems to be optimistic about Mack's chances of playing vs. Atlanta. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2. If not, Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead back, with Nyheim Hines also playing an increased role.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) missed practice again on Thursday. He's now in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons -- although insider George Bremer believes there's still a "decent chance" Mack plays. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners need to be making backup plans. Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead ball carrier if Mack sits.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday with a calf injury. The team only had a walkthrough, so it's an estimate of Mack's participation. This obviously bears monitoring over the next couple of days, though. Mack's absence would leave Jordan Wilkins as the Colts' lead ball-carrier, with Nyheim Hines potentially playing an expanded role.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has been sidelined the past couple of days with a foot injury. “Ongoing evaluation on him,” HC Frank Reich said Saturday. “Trying to determine the best course of action on his foot.” Wilkins' absence will gives RBs D'Onta Foreman and Jonathan Williams a chance to make up some ground on the depth chart. Those 3 guys could be fighting for just 1 roster spot behind Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines.
