The team addressed that issue by bringing back a familiar face, signing veteran RB Jordan Wilkins to the practice squad on Wednesday.
Indianapolis Colts News
Wilkins, 28, returns to the Colts after a brief stint with the Tennessee Titans. He played one game for them last year before being waived during training camp in August.
Indianapolis is bringing Wilkins back for a second stint after releasing him during the 2021 season. Wilkins was originally drafted by the Colts and debuted with them in 2018, primarily serving as a backup to Marlon Mack and then Taylor before being waived in 2021.
While he hasn't played in a game since January, Wilkins has solid experience under his belt. He's appeared in 50 games throughout his NFL career, compiling 1,184 total yards and 4 touchdowns while averaging 4.9 yards per carry.
Wilkins will try to reclaim some of that playing time on his old team. Meanwhile, the Colts head into Week 9 as 5.5-point road underdogs against the New England Patriots on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
