Hines had three carries for one yard and three receptions for 16 yards on five targets in Sunday's win at Houston.
Hines played 28 snaps on offense compared to 40 for Marlon Mack. As the top backup to Mack, Hines remains a steady option in in the passing game as his five targets were fifth on the team despite his modest yardage total.
Hines rushed for five yards on four carries and caught all nine of his targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Jaguars.
The Colts went with a pass-heavy approach with starting running back Marlon Mack (concussion) perhaps operating at less than 100 percent. Hines was the beneficiary of that game plan, finishing with 13 touches to Mack's nine. While Hines could see increased involvement again if Indianapolis falls behind in Week 14 against a Texans team that comes in riding a nine-game winning streak, Mack's likely to get closer to full strength by then and should see a larger share of work out of the backfield.
While Hines' Week 12 numbers are nothing special, a concussion clouds Marlon Mack's status for this weekend's tilt against the Jaguars, per Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis. If Mack isn't cleared by then, Hines would be in line to head the Colts' Week 13 backfield, with Jordan Wilkins also in the mix.
Hines had five carries for 14 yards and one reception for 20 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Tennessee.
Hines struggled a bit with a dropped pass and fumble (which the Colts recovered) Hines is still the No. 2 running back as he played 16 snaps on offense compared to 11 snaps for Jordan Wilkins and 38 for starter Marlon Mack.
Hines had three carries for three yards and three receptions for 19 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Hines is Indy's pass-catching back, but he'd been productive on the ground the past two weeks with 125 yards rushing and a 7.8 YPC. However, the Colts struggled against the run Sunday as Marlon Mack averaged just 2.4 yards per carry. Hines played 20 snaps on offense as he's the clear No. 2 running back ahead of Jordan Wilkins, who payed just five snaps on offense.
