NFL Rumors: Colts' All-Pro Running Back to Return in Week 10

The Indianapolis Colts have had a wild week, but at least they should have their biggest star back in the lineup when they take the field against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10. Running back Jonathan Taylor practiced again on Friday and appears poised to start. Taylor practiced fully during Thursday's session and doesn't appear to have suffered any setbacks. He missed last week's 26-3 thrashing at the hands of the New England Patriots with an ankle injury. He was also unavailable for the Colts' Week 5 win over the Denver Broncos and a Week 6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Taylor has had an up-and-down year in what has been a tumultuous season overall for the Colts. After leading the league last year with 2171 yards from scrimmage and 20 total touchdowns, the third-year back has broken the hearts of fantasy drafters this season with 533 yards from scrimmage and a lone touchdown. 

Taylor's return should provide some stability for a Colts offense that has seen its passing attack collapse since the benching of veteran quarterback Matt Ryan. Second-year passer Sam Ehlinger has netted a minuscule 232 passing yards in two losses for the Colts, and newly crowned interim head coach Jeff Saturday has already committed to him as the starter going forward. The Colts will hope their young quarterback benefits from the increased rushing threat Taylor brings to the table.
