UPDATE: The worst appears to be happening for Marlon Mack, as his season might be over due to a torn Achilles. Again, Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are set to see a big boost in fantasy opportunities.

Mack will not return to this game with an apparent ankle injury. Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor will get plenty of work in his place. Hines looks like a priority waiver wire pickup now.

UPDATE: The Colts announced Mack is questionable to return to the game with the ankle injury.

Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack suffered an ankle injury on Sunday and needed to be carted off the field. per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Colts running back Nyheim Hines has taken the fantasy glory so far with two touchdowns, but this is a huge opportunity for rookie Jonathan Taylor to get going.

Mack had 4 carries for 26 yards and three receptions for 30 yards while Hines was at five carries for 22 yards and two receptions for 8 yards along with his two touchdowns. If Mack is out for the rest of the game, Taylor, who has one receptions for 35 yards, should get a healthy dose of work.
