Turbin (suspension) took five carries for 12 yards and lost a fumble in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.
Turbin failed to take advantage of his opportunity as a starter in his last game appearance until Week 5. He could have a part-time role when he returns from his four-game suspension, with goal-line/short-yardage work representing his best opportunity to contribute.
Turbin (ankle, suspension) will be held out of Saturday's preseason contest against the 49ers.
Following a two-week absence to tend to an ankle injury, Turbin returned to practice Thursday, but the showing wasn't enough for the training staff to sign off on game action. He'll thus have one more chance to see the field (Thursday in Cincinnati) before kicking off the regular season with a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. At that point, the Colts backfield could be helmed by a combination of Jordan Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines if Marlon Mack's strained hamstring continues to linger.
Turbin took the practice field for the first time since injuring his ankle in Indianapolis' preseason opener Aug. 9. In that particular contest, he impressed with six carries for 27 yards and two catches (on three targets) for 18 yards. It remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to play Saturday against the 49ers, leaving one exhibition to make an appearance before kicking off the regular season with a four-game suspension. The rest of the backfield is in flux due to presumed starter Marlon Mack's hamstring injury. For the time being, Jordan Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines figure to battle for reps with the first-team offense.
Turbin (suspension) missed practice Saturday after suffering an ankle injury in Thursday's preseason win at Seattle, Mike Chappell reports. Turbin is "week-to-week,'" according to head coach Frank Reich.
Turbin is suspended for the first four NFL regular-season games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. However, he's able to play in the preseason and was likely set for a sizeable workload. The Colts may be thin at running back in the preseason with Marlon Mack also sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Turbin (suspension) had six carries for 27 yards and two receptions for 18 yards in Thursday's preseason win at Seattle.
Expect Turbin to get extensive work in the preseason since he can play in exhibition games even though he's suspended for the first four NFL regular season games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Turbin could win a role as Marlon Mack's primary backup and carve out a goal-line role.
