Indianapolis Colts running backs Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines have been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars.
Deon Jackson is in line to handle the bulk of the rushing duties for the Colts (2-2-1) on Sunday against the Jaguars (2-3). Jackson, 23, rushed 13 times for 62 yards in Indianapolis’ 12-9 overtime win over the Denver Broncos on Oct. 6.
Also Saturday, the Colts elevated running backs Phillip Lindsay and D’Vonte Price to the active roster from the practice squad. They also signed wide receiver Keke Coutee to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and waived tackle Luke Tenuto.
Taylor did not play in the Week 5 win against the Broncos because of an ankle injury that also kept him out of Wednesday’s practice. He was limited to sessions on Thursday and Friday.
The 2021 NFL champion suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Colts’ Week 4 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Taylor, 23, has rushed for 328 yards and a touchdown and has nine catches for 44 yards in four games this season. He was held to 54 yards in the first meeting with the Jaguars, a 24-0 loss at Jacksonville in Week 2.
Hines was limited in practice on Wednesday before making full appearances in Thursday and Friday’s sessions. He is coming back from a concussion he suffered on the third offensive play against the Broncos.
The Colts ruled out linebacker Shaquille Leonard (concussion, nose, back) and defensive tackle Kwity Paye (ankle) on Friday for Sunday’s rematch against the Jaguars.
Lindsay, 28, has 11 catches for 40 yards and three catches for 14 yards in one game this season.
Price, 23, has yet to play in an NFL game after going undrafted out of Florida International.
Coutee, 25, had one catch for 5 yards in two games this season.
Tenuto, 23, was claimed by the Colts on Aug. 31, a day after being released by the Buffalo Bills. He has yet to play in an NFL game.
