The Colts opted to re-sign Mack on a one-year, $2 million contract coming off his torn Achilles tendon in Week 1 of the 2020 season. He should be ready to go for the start of the season and could emerge as the No. 2 option behind Jonathan Taylor if he looks fully recovered. Still just 25, Mack could re-emerge as a Fantasy contributor, either in Indy if something goes wrong with Taylor or with another team in 2022. But he won't be worth drafting in the majority of leagues this season.
Mack (Achilles) will be ready to participate fully in practice at the start of training camp according to GM Chris Ballard, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. Mack participated in activities with the Colts during voluntary offseason workouts but wasn't involved in practice. He suffered a ruptured right Achilles tendon Week 1 last year and missed the remainder of the season. If he's back to his pre-injury form, his role will be something to watch this summer, as it's not clear how the touches will be distributed in the Indy backfield other than Jonathan Taylor being the clear lead back.
Mack (Achilles) has been participating in activities with the Colts during voluntary offseason workouts being held at team headquarters, but he hasn't been seen participating in practice, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. Mack suffered a ruptured right Achilles' tendon in Week 1 last year and missed the remainder of the season. He appears to be on track for the start of training camp, but he's still taking things slowly this spring. If healthy, he'll slot in behind Jonathan Taylor to start the 2021 campaign, leaving him in line to fill a complementary role along with Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.
Mack (Achilles) re-signed Wednesday with the Colts on a one-year, $2 million deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Mack suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon Week 1 and missed the remainder of the season, but he's since progressed to the point that he's expected to be full participant by the time training camp rolls around, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. At this point, Mack is estimated to be about 80 to 90 percent healthy, per Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio. Mack will at least have the benefit of returning to an offense that he's already familiar with as he works his way back to 100 percent. Either way, the 25-year-old will presumably slot in behind Jonathan Taylor to start the 2021 campaign, leaving him in line to fill a complementary role along with Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.
Mack (Achilles) is making progress in his rehab and is on track for full clearance by the tentative start of training camp, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Mack suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon Week 1 of the 2020 campaign, paving the way for Jonathan Taylor to operate as Indianapolis' top between-the-tackles option right out of the gate. The 25-year-old appears destined to hit free agency mid-March, so giving teams confidence in his health will be key to his contract prospects. Though Mack could have a tough time earning a multi-year deal with substantial guaranteed money, he shouldn't have much trouble drawing interest from teams in need of a reliable tailback. He's just one year removed from a 1,091-yard rushing season, in which he also scored eight times on the ground across 14 appearances.
Mack, who ruptured his right Achilles' tendon in Week 1, is slated to become a free agent this offseason, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Though GM Chris Ballard didn't rule out bringing Mack back in 2021, he acknowledged that the running back, who has worked hard to recover from his injury, "deserves a good contract. I don't know if we are going to be able to do that here." In Mack's absence this past season, Jonathan Taylor established himself as the Colts' top back, while Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins worked in change-of-pace/complementary roles. The trio remain under contract with the team next season.
