The Colts released RB Phillip Lindsay. Even with RB Jonathan Taylor out last week, Lindsay was just 3rd in the backfield behind Deon Jackson and Jordan Wilkins. The move looks like another sign that Taylor is on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders.

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 Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He aggravated that ankle sprain last weekend and didn't practice at all this week. HC Frank Reich said Friday that there are no plans to put Taylor on IR right now but labeled him "week to week." Indianapolis' bye isn't until Week 14. Taylor's absence leaves the Colts with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and the newly acquired Zack Moss. With Taylor out in Weeks 5 and 6, Jackson totaled 25 carries and 14 targets to Lindsay's 14 carries and 7 targets. Jackson should lead the way this weekend and is a decent RB2 play with 6 teams on bye.

Colts RB Deon Jackson was knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a quad injury. He racked up 42 yards and a score on the ground plus 10 catches for 79 yards before exiting. Jackson's absence left Phillip Lindsay as Indianapolis' top RB. We'll see if Jackson, Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are available for Week 7

The Colts have downgraded RBs Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and Nyheim Hines (concussion) to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. That leaves Deon Jackson as the anticipated starter. He obviously lands in a good situation for touch upside. Jacksonville does rank 9th in Football Outsiders' run-defense DVOA and 7th in overall defensive DVOA, though. So it's not a terrific matchup. Consider Jackson to be a fantasy option if you're in need rather than a player to specifically target.

Colts RB Phillip Lindsay has been elevated from the practice squad. He'll join Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson in Indianapolis' Jonathan Taylor-less backfield vs. the Broncos tonight. We're expecting Hines to take on an increased rushing role and dominate passing-down work. We'll see how the rest of the snaps and touches are divvied between Lindsay and Jackson, but neither guy is a viable fantasy play outside of 1-game DFS contests.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos. He was always a long shot to play on the short week. Taylor's injury reportedly isn't serious, so he should have a shot to return for Week 6. JT's absence in Denver will leave the Colts with RBs Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay, who's expected to be elevated from the practice squad. When Taylor missed Week 12 of the 2020 season, Hines played 65% of the offensive snaps and handled 10 carries and 10 targets.

Colts HC Frank Reich said RB Phillip Lindsay "will work into the equation" if RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) can't play vs. the Broncos on Thursday night. Lindsay has spent the first 4 weeks of the season on the practice squad but is Indy's most experienced ball-carrier behind Taylor. RB Nyheim Hines would still be the top Week 5 fantasy option if Taylor can't go, but don't expect Hines to get a huge workload.

The Colts released RB Phillip Lindsay. It's a slightly surprising move and leaves RB Ty'Son Williams as the #3 RB behind Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. We'll see if the Colts make another move at the position.

Colts beat writer Zak Keefer calls Phillip Lindsay the team’s 3rd RB “right now.” That was the expectation after signing a 1-year deal in May, but it’s good to know he’s not falling out of favor. After all, the 28-year-old hasn’t been fantasy relevant since 2019 in Denver. Lindsay would likely enter a timeshare with Nyheim Hines should Jonathan Taylor miss games.

RB Phillip Lindsay inked a 1-year deal with the Colts, his agent announced. Lindsay was a revelation as an undrafted rookie back in 2018, running for 1,037 yards on 5.4 yards per carry. He backed that up with another 1,000-yard season in 2019 but has struggled the past 2 years, totaling 751 rushing yards on 3.6 yards per carry for 3 different teams (Denver, Houston, Miami). He'll battle for a backup job behind Jonathan Taylor in Indianapolis. Lindsay would figure to lose passing-down work to Nyheim Hines even in the case of a Taylor injury, so Lindsay isn't an attractive handcuff.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Miami will roll with RBs Duke Johnson, Myles Gaskin and Phillip Lindsay.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay has joined teammates Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed on the COVID list. All 3 are vaccinated, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, so they have a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Miami has RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad, with RB Malcolm Brown still on IR with the quad injury he suffered back in Week 7.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed has joined teammate Myles Gaskin on the COVID list. We'll see if they can get cleared for Miami's next game in Week 15 vs. the Jets. The Dolphins currently have Phillip Lindsay on the active roster, Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad and Malcolm Brown on IR.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin tested positive for COVID, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gaskin is vaccinated, so there's a chance he's cleared in time for Miami's Week 15 game vs. the Jets. If not, the Dolphins would be down to RBs Phillip Lindsay and Salvon Ahmed on the active roster. RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks are on the practice squad, while RB Malcolm Brown (quad) is eligible to come off IR

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. Myles Gaskin has averaged 18.3 carries and 3.5 targets over his last 4 games and should continue to see plenty of volume today.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. He got some mop-up work last week but wasn't a real threat to RB Myles Gaskins' volume. Of course, Lindsay's absence doesn't hurt Gaskins' Week 13 outlook.
