Jonathan Taylor (ankle) sidelined for Colts OTAs, planning for training camp return

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is aiming to be fully healthy when the team opens its official training camp programs.

What It Means:

Taylor has been present but inactive at the Colts' early OTAs while he continues to rehab the ankle he had offseason surgery on. The ankle injury severely limited the star running back in 2022, restricting him to just 11 games while he averaged a career-low 4.5 yards per carry. By all accounts we've heard so far, Taylor should be 100% healthy heading into the 2023 season.

The Colts should be looking to lean on Taylor again in the 2023 season, especially as they work first-round pick Anthony Richardson into the mix. With Taylor and Richardson threatening opposing defenses on the ground, the Colts will have an opportunity to field a truly exciting offense under new head coach Shane Steichen this season.
