The Indianapolis Colts have full rotation to run behind.

Jonathan Taylor will be their starting option at backfield after running for the league-best 1,811 yards and 18 touchdowns last season.

He will be backed up by Nyheim Hines, who had 276 yards and two touchdowns in 2021.

However, by signing Philip Lindsay, the Colts added another weapon behind quarterback Matt Ryan.

Colorado native Denver played for the Broncos from 2018 to 2020.

Last season, he was fit for the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins.

He began his career with a consecutive 1,000-yard racing season.

Unfortunately, the toe injury started his fall.

Last season, Lindsay had a total of 209 yards and a touchdown for Houston and Miami.

The Colts hope the 27-year-old will return to his explosive form on the run.

If he did, it would be hard to beat Indianapolis.

But Stephen Holder of The Athletics has revealed Linds’ specific role with the team that barely missed the 2021 post-season.

Holder tweeted, “Regarding the signing of the Colts by former Broncos 1,000-yard racer Philip Lindsay, here’s what matters: Lindsay must be a factor in special teams to be active on roster / play day. It didn’t play out on the special team that led to Marlon Mack’s inactivity last season. “

Lindsay can be an asset to special teams

Taylor will already get most of the handoff from Ryan.

Hines, meanwhile, will give him time to rest, especially in the third and longest situations.

As these two players cover the rotation of their backfield, Lindsay can make the difference by making kicks and punt returns.

Recovering from the explosion of speed that he unleashed early in his career turned him into a danger to deal with.

Breaking big profits or scoring a touchdown will help the Colts avoid the fallout that happened to them last year.
