Colts RB Nyheim Hines fumbles again
Colts rookie running back Nyheim Hines fumbled in the team's second preseason game Monday night. It was his fourth fumble in two games.
This is a big problem with respect to Hines' ability to earn playing time as a rookie. We know that coaches do not like to put players on the field who put the ball on the ground. While it does seem like Hines probably just has a case of the yips, it is worth noting that he fumbled seven times in his final two seasons at N.C. State on just 343 combined all-purpose touches. This may be an ongoing issue.
