ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) "likely" to play against the Falcons today. "But team wants to test him in pre-game warmups before making any final decision on his status," Schefter adds. Mack only got in a limited practice on Friday, although the Indianapolis media always seemed optimistic about his Week 3 availability. We'll get his official game status by noon ET. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2.

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.

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered an ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars and is officially questionable to return. His absence leaves Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor in Indianapolis' backfield.

Update: The Colts have ruled Mack out for the rest of the game. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Colts fear a torn Achilles' tendon for Mack.

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.
