Colts Running Back Exits With Concussion Symptoms on TNF

The Indianapolis Colts are in the throes of a running back crisis on Thursday Night Football against the Denver Broncos. With All-Pro Jonathan Taylor already inactive, running back Nyheim Hines was helped off the field in the first quarter with concussion symptoms. Hines came up wobbling after a third-down catch-and-run on the team's first drive. Deon Jackson and the recently signed Phillip Lindsay will handle the carries for the remainder of the game. They've combined for two carries to this point in the 2022 season. Jackson tallied three touches on four plays during the Colts' second drive.  
Hines joined the Colts as their 104th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and has appeared in 70 straight games for the team. A pass-catching specialist out of the backfield, the running back had compiled 1650 receiving yards and 1180 rushing yards before tonight's game. The Colts will hope he and Jonathan Taylor can both return after 10-days rest for Week 6's crucial divisional matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
