The running back returned to practice this week. He suffered a season-ending right ankle injury in December, and since then he had not practiced with the team. Taylor asked for a trade this summer amid a contract dispute, but now when asked about his future with the Colts he said “I don’t think it matters if I’m saying I’m committed or not, because I’m here”.

“If somebody wasn’t committed, they wouldn’t be here. And right now, I’m here and my No 1 goal is to attack this first practice. It’s been over 290 days, I believe”, said Taylor. He is in the final year of his four-year, $7.8m rookie contract, and this season he was due to receive a $4.3m base salary.

When asked about a contract extension the running back said he wasn’t “here to get into any contract things”. “Those were over the course of the offseason, but the season is here. We’ve got the Tennessee Titans on the clock. Division matchup. What are you going to do?”. 

Taylor rushed for 861 yards and four touchdowns in 11 starts in the last season. He also gained 4,643 yards from scrimmage and scored 36 touchdowns in 43 career games.
