Mack carried 27 times for 139 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Cowboys. He also caught one pass for a 10-yard gain in the 23-0 win. The Dallas defense had allowed just one 100-yard rusher this season coming in, but Mack gashed them repeatedly en route to a new career high in rushing. He scored a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter and added a six-yard score to start things off in the third. Mack was bottled up on the ground over the last two weeks, but he still has at least 96 scrimmage yards or a touchdown in four of his last five games. He'll hope to retain a sizable role in the offense Week 16 against the Giants.
Mack rushed 14 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 win over Houston. Mack had a tough day all around and was unable to catch his lone target. However, he got the Colts on the board with a 4-yard rush for a touchdown in the second quarter. After back-to-back 100-yard efforts with scores in Weeks 8 and 9, the South Florida product has surpassed 35 rushing yards just twice in five games since. He'll try to reverse that trend at home Week 15 against Dallas.
Mack said Friday he's the healthiest he has been all season, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. In addition to the hamstring injury that held him out for most of August and September, the second-year running back has dealt with a sprained ankle, an unspecified foot injury and a concussion. While it's promising to see Mack absent from the Week 14 injury report, he'll still have his hands full Sunday against a stingy Houston defense that surrenders just 3.7 yards per carry and 91.3 rushing yards per game for the season. It doesn't help that the Colts are road underdogs.
Mack (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Mack is thus on track to head the Colts' backfield Sunday against a Jacksonville defense that got the best of him in Week 10, limiting the running back to 29 yards on 12 carries and nine yards on two catches in a 29-26 Indy win. He'll look to bounce back Sunday, with the Jaguars on a seven-game losing slide. Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins are on hand to work in complementary roles for the Colts in Week 13 and would step in in the event that Mack suffers any injury setbacks Sunday.
Mack (concussion), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Schefter's report doesn't indicate if Mack has cleared the final phase of the five-step concussion protocol, but the expectation is the running back will receive clearance from an independent neurologist prior to the 1 p.m. EST kickoff. Mack practiced Thursday and Friday in full capacity and should head the Indianapolis backfield if he is in fact cleared to play against the Jaguars' 16th-ranked run defense, which ceded 167 yards on the ground to the Bills in a Week 12 loss.
