Mack (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Redskins.
Reports earlier Sunday suggested Mack would be ready to make his season debut Week 2, but the team wanted to get a good look at the back during pregame warmups before making it official. While Mack will suit up and be part of the backfield mix, it wouldn't be out of the question for rookies Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines to still have a role. The Colts will be squaring off against a Washington defense that gave up just 68 yards on the ground in Week 1 and limited star running back David Johnson to 37 yards rushing.
Mack (hamstring) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday.
That marks four straight limited sessions for Mack, but he's still not a lock to play Sunday against Washington. That said, his outlook on that front would brighten if he is able to log a full practice Friday. In Mack's Week 1 absence, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines effectively split the Colts' backfield duties, with Wilkins leading the way on the ground with 14 carries for 40 yards, while Hines made a mark in PPR formats by catching seven passes for 33 yards.

It remains to be seen, however, if Mack will once again be officially listed by the Colts as a limited participant, as he was Wednesday. While the running back is trending in the right direction, he's still not a lock to play Sunday against Washington.

Per Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site, Mack -- who ended up being a game-time decision for this past weekend's season opener -- was held out as a precaution. With three straight limited practices in a row under his belt, Mack is trending in the right direction, but for now coach Frank Reich calls the running back day-to-day. Mack's chances of suiting up Sunday against Washington would no doubt be boosted if he practices fully Thursday and/or Friday.

Given that Mack was a limited participant in practice last Thursday and Friday, there's a solid chance he'll make his season debut Week 2 against Washington if he's able to practice fully at some point within the next three days. Jordan Wilkins led the Colts with 14 carries for 40 yards in the season-opening loss to the Bengals, with backup Nyheim Hines chipping in five carries for 19 yards and seven catches for 33 yards. If Mack is cleared to play this week, he would presumably reclaim his status as the lead option in the Colts' backfield committee.
