A pair of struggling offenses with injury issues at running back will square off on Thursday night when the Indianapolis Colts visit the Denver Broncos.
The Colts (1-2-1) rank last in the NFL in scoring (14.3 points per game) and will be without workhorse running back Jonathan Taylor after he suffered an ankle injury during Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Nyheim Hines will likely have a much larger role in the game plan, with Deon Jackson backing him up. Also, former Bronco Phillip Lindsay could be activated off the practice squad.
The Broncos (2-2) are off to a disappointing start with new quarterback Russell Wilson, averaging only 16.5 points per game (30th of 32). They’ll be without running back Javonte Williams, who is out for the season after seriously injuring his knee during last week’s 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Veteran Melvin Gordon, backup Mike Boone and newly acquired Latavius Murray will be asked to pick up the slack.
