UPDATE: Hines has been ruled out with a concussion. Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay have been splitting work in his absence so far.

Indianapolis Colts Nyheim Hines took a hard hit on the first drive of Thursday Night Football against the Denver Broncos and was extremely unsteady when trying to get back to his feet with the help of his teammates. There’s little doubt he will be out for the rest of the game with a possible concussion.

Hines has been taken to the locker room, and after the Tua Tagovailoa injury that exposed problems with the concussion protocols, Hines will not return based on his instability.

With Hines out, and Jonathan Taylor unavailable for this game, ex-Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay and Deon Jackson will be the two Colts running backs the rest of the way.
