Turbin (shoulder) was waived by the Colts on Friday. Turbin's release comes as a bit of a surprise, considering he seemed to be recovering well from the shoulder injury he sustained in Week 6 against the Jets. Week 5 was the only other game Turbin played in this season -- after missing the first four games due to suspension -- and he received just nine snaps on offense and didn't log any carries.
Turbin (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Turbin was limited in practice to begin the week, but his full participation Thursday suggests a full recovery from a dislocated shoulder sustained in Week 6. The veteran running back appears on track for Sunday's game against the Jaguars and will serve as a depth option behind Marlon Mack (ankle) and Nyheim Hines.
Turbin (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Turbin continues to nurse a dislocated shoulder suffered during a Week 6 loss to the Jets. The veteran's limited participation in practice suggests that he made some progress in his recovery during Indianapolis' bye week, but Turbin should still be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Turbin (shoulder) returned to practice Monday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. Turbin hasn't played since Week 6, when he dislocated his shoulder against the Jets. His return to the practice field is an encouraging sign and suggests he may be able to play against the Jaguars in Week 10.
Running backs coach Tom Rathman said Tuesday that the Colts hope Turbin (shoulder) returns to practice as early as next week, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. Turbin opened the season with a four-game suspension for a violation of the policy on performance-enhancing drugs and only lasted two games before dislocating his shoulder Week 6 against the Jets. With the Colts on bye this week, Turbin apparently will attempt to give it a go next week with an eye on an appearance Nov. 11 versus the Jaguars.
