Reich: RB Phillip Lindsay 'will work into equation' if Jonathan Taylor (ankle) out

If Jonathan Taylor is not able to play, Indianapolis would likely increase the role for Nyheim Hines, who has 17 catches this season but just eight carries for 11 yards as a runner.

The Colts might also turn to veteran running back Phillip Lindsay, who has spent the first four weeks on the practice squad.

“If JT’s not up, Phillip will work into the equation,” Reich said.

Lindsay would be returning home.
