The Colts have three other RBs now on the active roster. Deon Jackson flashed in spurts relieving Taylor last year, turning 68 carries into 236 yards and a touchdown while collecting 30 receptions for 209 yards and another score. Evan Hull, a fifth-round rookie, rounds out the backfield options on the roster alongside the aforementioned Funk.
The musical chairs to find a healthy runner unfortunately takes place against the backdrop of quarterback Anthony Richardson’s first NFL start.
One positive for the Colts’ rushing prospects? The big-armed quarterback is plenty dangerous carrying the ball in his own right.
