He will still receive his $2.1 million salary despite being injured. Rookie phenom Jonathan Taylor would be the team’s featured back for the rest of the season.

Mack’s injury was originally described as an ankle injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was a non-contact injury.

He attempted to make a cut and go upfield after making a catch when he went down.

He had four carries for 26 yards before exiting the game. He also had three receptions for 30 yards.

The 24-year-old was a fourth-round draft pick by the Colts in the 2017 NFL Draft. He spent the last three seasons with the franchise.

Mack had 14 appearances, including 12 starts, in 2019. He had a career-high 247 carries with 1,091 yards and eight touchdowns.

He also had 14 receptions for 82 yards.

In his young career, Mack has had 40 appearances, including 22 starts. He has 535 carries for 2,357 yards and 20 touchdowns.

He also has 52 receptions for 410 yards and two touchdowns.

Taylor – who was the Colts second round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft – had nine carries for 22 yards in the game. He also had six receptions for 67 yards.
