Jonathan Taylor (born January 19, 1999) is an American football running back for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. This article goes over the player’s current injury status as well as some background information.
What happened to Jonathan Taylor during his time in the NFL?
Status: Injured Reserve
UPDATE (DEC. 24): Taylor (ankle) is expected to be placed on injured reserve by the Colts on Tuesday.
UPDATE (DEC. 18): Taylor was diagnosed with a sprained ankle following the Colts’ 39-36 overtime loss at Minnesota on Sunday, and while the injury isn’t considered serious, it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to play in any of the Colts’ final three games of the season, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
UPDATE 2: In a 54-19 loss to Dallas on Sunday, Taylor rushed for 82 yards on 21 carries and caught three of four targets for 21 yards.
UPDATE: Taylor is currently playing for the COLTS.
Taylor rushed 22 times for 147 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday’s 25-20 win over the Raiders.
Taylor appeared to be moving much better in practice this week, but he could be a game-time decision.
Jonathan Taylor, the backup runner, did not practice today due to an ankle injury.
Taylor has been out for several weeks with an ankle injury, missing multiple practices and three games.
Taylor’s participation on the injury report on Wednesday, the first day of the week, is a good sign that he’ll be able to start the week without missing practice.
However, we’ve seen Taylor practice for an entire week and still be inactive, so the Colts would be wise to be cautious with their star running back given the team’s direction.
Taylor’s return to the Colts offense is critical, but he will continue to miss games until he is healthy enough to return to practice.
