Colts RB Zack Moss ran for 74 yards on 15 carries (4.9 per rush) in Sunday's 38-10 loss at the Giants. He clearly led the backfield for the 2nd straight game. RB Jordan Wilkins drew the group's only 2 targets, though, catching both for 14 yards. Moss has averaged 4.3 yards per carry over the past 3 games, following Jonathan Taylor's season-ending injury. He'll close out with an upside matchup against Houston's league-worst RB defense.

The Colts leaned on errant passing of QB Nick Foles, for some reason, despite hanging close with the Chargers into the 2nd half of Monday night's loss. RB Zack Moss got just 7 carries in the 1st half, compared with 18 dropbacks for Foles. Moss averaged 5.3 yards on those attempts, with RB Jordan Wilkins mixing in for a 4-yard run. But Moss got just 5 more carries for the game, finishing with a 12-65 rushing line (5.4 per attempt). Wilkins logged the only other RB carry. RB Deon Jackson drew 3 targets, catching them for 9 yards. Moss and Wilkins garnered a target apiece. It was a puzzling approach with a clearly struggling QB and against what has been a soft run defense most of the year. We'll see whether the Colts try to get Moss going more against the Giants in Week 17. Someone should tell them that the Giants are allowing 5.3 yards per RB rush for the season.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) has been placed on IR, officially ending his 2022 season. RB Jordan Wilkins was signed to the active roster in a corresponding move. Wilkins joins Zack Moss and Deon Jackson in Indianapolis' backfield going forward. See where the Colts RBs sit in the initial Week 16 RB Rankings.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran healthy in Sunday's win over the Raiders, racking up 147 yards and a TD on 22 carries. That score came from 66 yards and featured Taylor outrunning DBs to close it out. He added 2 catches for 16 yards in a game that found Jordan Wilkins and Zack Moss minimally involved behind him.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. The ankle still adds some risk to his fantasy profile, as does a floundering Colts offense. But Taylor should be in for plenty of touches on Sunday as long as that ankle holds up. RB Deon Jackson (knee) is out for Week 10, leaving Jordan Wilkins as Indianapolis’ likely #2 RB.

Colts RB Deon Jackson gained just 23 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, starting in place of injured RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle). Jackson added 2 receptions for 13 yards on 3 targets. RB Jordan Wilkins followed Jackson with 13 yards on 3 carries but beat him in targets (5), catches (4) and receiving yards (15). RB Phillip Lindsay ran for 2 yards on his lone carry and watched his lone target fall incomplete. We'll see if Taylor can make it back for next Sunday's visit to Las Vegas.

Colts RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today’s game vs. the Patriots. Indianapolis will roll with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts RB Marlon Mack is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Titans. Jordan Wilkins is active as Indy's #3 RB behind Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. The news could mean a few extra carries for Taylor.

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.
