A report this weekend said that the Colts would open running back Jonathan Taylor’s window to return from the physically unable to perform list this week and head coach Shane Steichen confirmed it on Monday.

Steichen said that the process will begin on Wednesday and that the plan is for Taylor to practice with the team for the first time this year. Taylor also requested a trade this offseason because the team has not shown interest in giving him the long-term contract he wants, but Steichen said Taylor is excited about getting back to work with the team. Steichen also said that Taylor could play in Week 5 against the Titans and that how Taylor looks on the practice field will determine whether that happens, the story went on to say. What a strange situation this has turned into. Owners should monitor his progress this week. One would assume if Taylor is ready to go he could at least be a flex option in lineups, but there's a lot of information we'll need between now and then. The Colts host the Titans in an early game in Week 5.
