Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack will miss an undetermined amount of time with a broken hand. He left the Colts’ Week 11 victory early in the third quarter, not to return.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the severity of the injury on Sunday. His return timetable is still unknown, although it is likely he will miss multiple weeks.
Colts’ RB Marlon Mack fractured his hand, per source. More tests to determine whether he needs surgery and how long he will miss, but Mack will not play Thursday night.

Before leaving the 33-13 win over the division rival Jaguars, Mack had 109 yards on the ground and a touchdown.
In his 10 games in 2019, Mack has 862 yards and four touchdowns. He also has 72 yards and a touchdown through the air. His yards per carry are low, at 4.5, especially considering his talent and the Colts good offensive line. Either way, he has been a difference maker at the running back position.
The other two backs most likely to take over in his absence are Nyiem Hines and Johnathan Williams.
The AFC South-leading Colts take on the 6-4 Texans on Thursday, as they try and increase their divison lead.
