Colts RB Jordan Wilkins injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins and is questionable to return. He had been working in a 3-way committee with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines. We'll update Wilkins' status when we learn more.

UPDATE: Wilkins returned in the 2nd half.

ESPN's Mike Wells considers Colts RB Jordan Wilkins the "front-runner" to start Week 1 if RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) isn't ready. Mack has yet to return to practice and seems unlikely to play against the Bengals on Sunday. That'd leave the backfield to Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines. All 3 guys figure to be involved, but it sounds like Wilkins is the favorite to lead the way in touches. It's a situation to avoid in Week 1 if possible, but Wilkins certainly deserves to be rostered in most fantasy leagues.

Colts RBs Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines worked with the 1st-team offense in Saturday night's preseason game against the 49ers. Neither guy was impressive, though. Wilkins carried 4 times for 0 yards and caught 1 pass for 4 yards with QB Andrew Luck and the starters. Hines mustered 3 yards on 3 carries with the 1st-team offense. RB Christine Michael also saw time with the starters and finished with 2 yards on 5 carries. The winner here looks to be Marlon Mack, who remains the favorite for lead RB duties if he can get past his hamstring issue.

Colts HC Frank Reich talked up rookie RB Jordan Wilkins after practice on Wednesday. “Jordan is one of those guys we are talking about with a real toughness,” Reich said. “I just feel like this guy loves football and he loves the physicality. He has no fear in his game. I think he’s making a very good impression. I’m very happy with the progress that he’s making. He’s showing the ability to play on all 3 downs. He’s better out of the backfield, as a receiver, than I thought he would be. Pass protection, he knows his stuff. He’s making good progress.” Wilkins’ all-around skill set has a real chance to be utilized early in the regular season. He’s on the radar as a late-round flier.

The Colts picked Ole Miss RB Jordan Wilkins in Round 6 of the Draft, 2 rounds after they selected RB Nyheim Hines. Wilkins stands bigger at 6'1 and 216 pounds. He posted a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, a 72nd-percentile SPARQ score and a 102.6 speed score. Wilkins totaled only 130 touches over his 1st 2 seasons and spent 2016 on academic suspension. But he tallied a 155-1,011-9 rushing line with 26 catches for 241 more yards as a senior. Wilkins averaged 6.3 yards per rush and 10.1 per reception across his college career. He'll be worth watching in what should be a wide-open backfield competition.
