Not yet ready to play
Colts head coach Frank Reich said that Taylor's status for Thursday's game against the Broncos is "unknown at this point" as the running back deals with an ankle injury, though Reich admitted he wouldn't be "ready to go right now" if the game was scheduled for Tuesday, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.
Taylor was listed as a non-participant on the Colts' estimated Week 5 practice report released Monday, and Reich's comments suggest he likely won't be on the field in any capacity Tuesday while he manages a sprained right ankle. The Colts haven't revealed the severity of Taylor's sprain, but the fact that all tests on the ankle have thus far returned negative suggests that a long-term absence isn't in play. Even so, he looks like he might have a tough time gaining clearance to play on a short week, and if he's forced to miss the second game of his career Thursday, Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson would be in store for expanded roles out of the backfield. Phillip Lindsay also resides on the practice squad and would be a candidate for elevation to the gameday roster to provide further depth.
