Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor has yet to step on the practice field during training camp, but reports indicate that has more to do with his health than his trade request.
During a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio, Colts general manager Chris Ballard seemed to confirm as much, stating that Taylor won’t be suiting up until the team is confident he’s no longer injured.
“He’s been a great Colt, a great player for the Colts,” Ballard said. “Unfortunately, last year he got hurt early in the season, was dinged up all year, fought through it until he finally got to the point where he had to have this surgery. Now, he’s finishing his rehab process. Hopefully as we move forward here, we’ll get him back. But we need to get him 100 percent healthy before we do anything.”
