Jonathan Taylor is hopeful he'll be able to play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos despite a badly twisted right ankle suffered in Week 4.
The Indianapolis Colts running back is rehabbing furiously and has seen definite improvement since Sunday.
"I definitely do plan to play, but if you can't go you can't go," Taylor said. "That's why you have to get as much treatment as you can."
He was wearing a boot on his right lower leg during Tuesday's light practice, during which he was a spectator. Taylor is not at risk for further injury based on what team doctors have told Frank Reich.
"From what I understand, the discussions that I've had, that's not a concern at this point," Reich said. "It's an injury where he's not ready to go right now, but we'll see if he'll be ready to go Thursday night."
