The Indianapolis Colts are trading RB Nyheim Hines to the Buffalo Bills, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Colts had reportedly been looking to move Hines and the Bills were linked to the back this week before the deadline, which is at 4 p.m. ET. The Colts get RB Zack Moss and a conditional sixth-round pick for Hines, per Jay Glazer.

With it fast approaching, the Bills fired on adding another weapon to the offense. The Colts are looking to revamp things but also have Jonathan Taylor and Deon Jackson in the backfield.

It’s a bit of a perplexing move with Taylor dealing with injuries this season. Jackson has done well in place of Taylor, but Hines added another element in the passing game. With Hines in Buffalo, it will impact Devin Singletary and James Cook.

Moss had seen his role diminish and its been mostly Singletary and QB Josh Allen in the run game for the Bills. So adding Hines give Buffalo a 3rd-down back and someone else in the passing game with WRs Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.
