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.

An MRI has confirmed that Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's opener. Mack will miss the rest of the season and hit free agency next offseason coming off a major injury. His absence leaves the Colts backfield to Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. Hines actually out-snapped the rookie 39 to 26 in Week 1, tallying 7 carries and 8 targets to Taylor's 9 carries and 6 targets. We're expecting Taylor to quickly emerge as the clear lead ball-carrier here, but Hines should remain plenty involved, especially in the passing game.
The Colts "fear" a torn Achilles for RB Marlon Mack, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. That'd be a season-ending injury -- and leave Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines in the backfield. Taylor would easily be the best fantasy bet, but Hines has been surprisingly involved in the opener.
