  • Colts' Deon Jackson: Returning in 2023

    Jackson signed his exclusive rights deal with the Colts on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 Houston reports.

    Jackson will return to the Colts on the league minimum salary in 2023. The 23-year-old running back rushed 68 times for 236 yards and one touchdown while catching 30 of 34 targets for 209 yards and one touchdown this season. Jackson will likely be limited to a depth role in the fall unless injuries deplete the Colts' backfield depth again.

  • Colts' Deon Jackson: Just three touches

    Jackson had three carries for 10 yards in Sunday's loss at the Giants.

    Jackson played just 14 snaps on offense and fell to third in carries behind starter Zack Moss and Jordan Wilkins. Three weeks ago, Jackson looked set to be the starter if Jonathan Taylor were to get hurt. However, Jackson has fallen out of favor after Taylor's season-ending ankle injury and now may be a third-stringer. It will be hard to count on many touches for Jackson even in a meaningless season finale against Houston.

  • Colts' Deon Jackson: Plays limited role sans Taylor

    Jackson had zero carries but caught all three targets for nine yards during Monday's 20-3 loss to the Chargers.

    With Jonathan Taylor (ankle) on IR, Jackson was expected to see an increased workload. However, his first reception went for a nine-yard loss in the first quarter, and he didn't touch the ball again until the Colts' final offensive possession. He tied Jordan Wilkins with just eight offensive snaps, as Zack Moss (36) dominated the backfield work. The entire offense struggled Monday night, but it was disappointing to see Jackson completely uninvolved until the final minutes. Even if he sees more snaps in Week 17, Jackson figures to be a risky play against the Giants' stout run defense.

  • Colts' Deon Jackson: Likely to rotate with Zack Moss

    Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday said that Jackson will likely be part of a rotation out of the backfield with Zack Moss during Monday's game against the Chargers, James Boyd of The Athletic reports.

    After Jonathan Taylor (ankle) exited early in last Saturday's 39-36 overtime loss to the Vikings with what proved to be a season-ending injury, Jackson ranked a distant second to Moss in terms of snap share. Jackson finished the day with 25 snaps (31.6 percent) and logged 13 carries for 55 yards to go with a one-yard touchdown reception, while Moss took 53 snaps (67.1 percent) and carried 24 times for 81 yards while going without a target. Saturday said that the Colts' starting running back for Week 16 will be a game-time decision, and it's possible the coach ends up favoring the hotter hand of the two backs as Monday's contest unfolds. The two backs' usage from last week would seem to imply that Moss is the preferred candidate for early down work, though the superior efficiency Jackson demonstrated could prompt Saturday to give him more snaps and carries than he received against the Vikings. The Colts also have Jordan Wilkins as a third option out of the backfield to potentially lean on.
