Wilkins is competing with Spencer Ware and Jonathan Williams for the No. 3 running-back job, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Coach Frank Reich said Marlon Mack will retain the lead role while Nyheim Hines continues to handle passing-down work. Wilkins was a fifth-round pick in 2018 and averaged 5.6 yards on 60 carries during his rookie season, but Ware has the edge in terms of size, experience and pass-catching acumen. Wilkins averaged just 5.3 yards on 16 receptions and lost two fumbles on 76 touches last season.
