Mack out for Week 5 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. That'll again leave the backfield to Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. Hines has posted 5+ catches in 3 of 4 games this season and is a RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) isn’t listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. HC Frank Reich said Friday that he doesn’t expect to have Mack on a pitch count — but added that there will be “rotational usage” in the backfield. Mack comes with elevated risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups, especially vs. a tough Bucs run defense.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) graduated to a full practice on Thursday after Wednesday's limited workout. He's trending toward returning for this weekend's game against the Bucs. We wonder if Mack's pass-catching ability will be impacted by the hand injury. And it's a tough matchup on the ground. Consider Mack a borderline RB2 for Week 14.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) is expected back at practice on Wednesday, HC Frank Reich said. We'll monitor Mack's progress over the next few days, but it looks like he has a shot to return for Sunday's game against the Bucs. Mack would be a RB2 in that tough matchup.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that RB Marlon Mack (hand) won't play against the Titans this weekend. RB Jonathan Williams surprisingly played a workhorse role with Mack out this past Thursday night, handling 26 carries and 3 catches. He'll be a volume-based RB2 in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Colts HC Frank Reich said that RB Marlon Mack had surgery on his fractured hand on Monday morning. There's not yet a timetable for his return, but we should get one soon. Fantasy owners should be bracing for Mack to miss multiple games. With RB Jordan Wilkins dealing with an ankle injury, Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines are the Colts' healthy RBs for Thursday night's game against the Texans.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Mack is expected to miss a "few weeks" beyond Thursday night's game.
