Colts lost Marlon Mack for rest of 2020 season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Indianapolis Colts have lost starting running back Marlon Mack for the rest of the season. He tore his Achilles tendon in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

His injury was originally diagnosed as an ankle injury. However, as the team’s medical professionals examined him further, it was determined that he injured his Achilles.

An MRI confirmed on Monday that he was lost for the season. This is tough news for Mack, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Mack was not contacted when he went down with his injury. He was attempting to make a cut and go upfield following a short catch when the injury happened.

With this torn Achilles, he will miss up to one-year of action. This is going to impact his free agency next March.

Due to the injury, he will likely receive a one-year, prove-it deal to show the team that signs him, along with the other teams in the league that he is healthy in 2021. It’s unlikely he will receive a long-term, massive deal following this injury.

Rookie phenom Jonathan Taylor will take over, as the featured back for the Colts this season. He was the team’s second-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Taylor had nine carries for 22 yards in his first NFL game. He also had six receptions for 67 yards.

Before leaving the contest, Mack had four carries for 26 yards. He also had three receptions for 30 yards.
