Jonathan Taylor's absence has plagued the Colts' backfield. Zack Moss fractured his arm in training camp. Besides Moss, Indianapolis' only backup is unlikely to return this season.
Evan Hull's rookie season may finish early after being placed on IR last week. Jordan Schultz of The Score writes that the fifth-round selection tore his meniscus and will miss the season.
Hull was the Colts' alternate backfield in Week 1 with Taylor on the reserve/PUP list and Moss out. Hull played eight snaps alongside Deon Jackson in Indy's opening. A third-quarter carry was cut short by a knee injury. Therefore, the Colts must make additional backfield modifications.
Hull caught 55 receptions for 546 yards in his final Northwestern season. His rookie contract ends in 2026. Week 2 saw the Colts almost solely use Moss.
In the Colts' triumph against the Texans, the 2022 trade acquisition played 98% of offensive snaps. Jackson stays backup. Former Rams UDFA Jake Funk is the Colts' third RB.
Indianapolis signed Trey Sermon, who missed Philadelphia's 53-man roster in August, to its practice squad this week. The Colts' P-squad includes Sermon and 2022 Packers UDFA Tyler Goodson.
