2. Running back Phillip Lindsay is likely done with Colts
Phillip Lindsay was an interesting signing for Indianapolis. When he was added to the roster, Indy hand a healthy Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. Many people assumed that Lindsay would be kind of an RB2 and Nyheim Hines would be able to spend more time split out at receiver. However, none of that happened. Instead, Lindsay spent the season bouncing between the active roster and the practice squad.
Obviously, the year started with Taylor and Hines as the top two backs. Every time it seemed as if Lindsay was going to find his way into the rotation, it just never happened. His most productive game fittingly came against the Denver Broncos. After both Taylor and Hines were hurt, Lindsay carried the ball 11 times for 40 yards against Denver. That was the most work he got all season.
Even once Taylor was sidelined with his ankle injury and Nyheim Hines was traded to the Buffalo Bills, Lindsay was passed up on the depth chart by Zack Moss and Deon Jackson. Lindsay finished the year playing in just three games and receiving 15 total carries for 49 yards.
Lindsay will now be a free agent again. With Jonathan Taylor returning healthy next season, and Zack Moss coming back after looking promising late last season, Lindsay’s time with the Colts is definitely finished.
