Indianapolis Colts All-Pro running back Jonathan Taylor was upgraded to a limited participant at practice on Thursday after missing Week 5 with a right ankle sprain. 

Taylor has an SIC score of 75 and is trending towards playing with limited effectiveness against the Jaguars in Week 6. 

He likely would have suited up for Indianapolis last week, according to the Pro Football Docs, but the truncated three-day Thursday turnaround was too much to overcome. 

Taylor missed his first game of the season one week after missing his first practice with an unrelated case of turf toe. 

The Colts, 2-2-1, are 2.5-point favorites over Jacksonville at home on FanDuel Sportsbook and the over/under is set at 41.5. 

In their first meeting in Week 2 the Jaguars won, 24-0, and held Taylor to 54 yards on nine carries as the Colts spent most of the game down at least two scores.
