The Indianapolis Colts backfield is an absolute mess right now. Just when it looked like running backs Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines were becoming viable fantasy options, Marlon Mack came back from injury and starting lighting it up. 


Then, as people rushed to pick up Mack off the waiver wire, he got hurt again. It has been a rollercoaster ride for Colts fans and fantasy owners alike this season but, luckily for the Colts as a team, it looks like Mack will be good to go Sunday. 

As you can see in this infographic from the Colts' Twitter account, Mack is questionable for the Colts game against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. He was, however, a full participant in practice on Friday and that's a good indication he'll suit up this week. 


Mack is coming off a game with 126 rushing yards and a touchdown -- in only three healthy games this season, he has amassed 41 carries, 249 rushing yards, and a touchdown while also catching four passes for 39 receiving yards and another touchdown. Mack was solid backing up Frank Gore last year and the Colts were excited to see what he could do as their starter in 2018, but Mack's season has been marred by injury thus far. 


Despite all that, his performance last Sunday was a glimpse of just how good he can be.
