Indianapolis Colts’ running back, Jonathan Taylor, faces a setback as he gears up, once again, to tackle an injury hurdle. Taylor is slated for thumb surgery that will keep him out for multiple weeks, as confirmed by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay in a discussion with The Athletic’s James Boyd.
Reports earlier in the day hinted at Taylor’s thumb injury, raising doubts about his availability for upcoming games. While the decision regarding placing Taylor on injured reserve—potentially sidelining him for at least four games—remains pending, it’s expected to be determined later this week.
Taylor had been displaying glimpses of his previous top-notch performance, notably recording a season-high of 23 carries for 69 yards along with a touchdown in a victorious Week 10 clash against the New England Patriots. His momentum continued as he secured a season-best of 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns in just 15 carries during the recent win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Despite the injury, Taylor demonstrated his resilience by playing through the latter part of the game against the Buccaneers, as per reports.
