The Colts had 1 player and 3 staff members originally test positive for COVID, but all 4 have come back as false positives, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So the Bengals-Colts game is on for Sunday. We'll let you know if that changes.
Joel A. Erickson of the Indy Star believes the presence of QB Matt Ryan will have a “profound effect” on RB Jonathan Taylor’s receiving output. Perhaps that’s an exaggeration; Taylor caught 40 balls last year — 2.35 per game — and we don’t forecast a significant jump this fall. But the thesis here is that Ryan will take the checkdown much more often than Carson Wentz did. Taylor’s also grown as a pass-catcher. “Understanding the different coverages,” Taylor said. “You have certain routes, and maybe, if they’re in a zone, know how to spray it a little bit and then sit down. Things like that, rather than knowing I just need to get to this depth and turn in.” JT was a receiving weapon last year with a massive 10.1 YAC per reception. Even if his pass catching numbers don’t spike, he projects as a clear top-2 fantasy RB.
Colts RB Jonathan Taylor left in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Jets with a knee injury. Indianapolis reached halftime with a 28-10 lead, so we wouldn't be surprised if the team shuts Taylor down for the night -- even if the injury isn't serious. We'll keep an eye on the situation either way.
Update: Taylor took the field to open the 2nd half.
Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. He was limited in practice all week due to “a little fluid build-up” in that knee, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Taylor will also be without stud G Quenton Nelson today. See where he sits in the Week 4 RB Rankings.
Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (knee) is expected to play vs. the Dolphins today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He had a little fluid build up in his knee, but it was more nagging than anything else," Rapoport adds. "He’ll be fine."
Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that Taylor is in danger of missing this one, but his status is worth checking on when inactives come out around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.
