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 four-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 against a stingy Houston defense that surrenders just 3.7 yards per carry and 91.3 rushing yards per game. It doesn't help that the Colts are road underdogs.
Mack (concussion) rushed eight times for 27 yards and caught his lone target for six more in Sunday's 6-0 loss to Jacksonville.
Mack cleared the concussion protocol ahead of this one, but the Colts looked reluctant to give him a heavy workload, instead opting to let Andrew Luck throw the ball 52 times. Indianapolis' starting running back had mustered 85-plus rushing yards in four of his previous six games, so a bounce-back effort is likely against the streaking Texans in Week 14.
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 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.
