Colts' Phillip Lindsay to 'work into the equation' if Jonathan Taylor (ankle) sits Week 5

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich told reporters Monday that running back Phillip Lindsay would see more work in Week 5 if Jonathan Taylor (ankle) cannot play.

What It Means:

“If JT’s not up, Phillip [Lindsay] will work into the equation,” Reich told reporters Monday. Lindsay hasn't worked into the equation this season behind Taylor and Nyheim Hines, but Hines is not the kind of back that can shoulder a full workload if Taylor is forced out of Thursday's game. Lindsay seems like a good bet to be the next man up as the team's early down back if Taylor misses any time.

Taylor has struggled to get things going so far this season as the Colts' offense has stalled out of the gates; the star back has averaged just 6.7 fantasy points per game in his last three weeks. It's hard to see Lindsay thriving in a situation that has been so inhospitable to Taylor, but it looks like Lindsay will at least have projectable volume in Week 5 if Taylor sits.
