Injuries have limited Indianapolis Colts’ faithful and Marlon Mack truthers to just flashes of excellence from the former USF standout in his two years in the NFL. He played his entire rookie campaign (2017) with a torn labrum in his shoulder, per Andrew Walker of colts.com, and missed time at the start of last season with nagging hamstring and foot injuries.
When healthy, however, Mack has played well above expectation. After returning from injury in Week 6 of last season, the 6-foot, 210-pound Mack earned a top-20 rushing grade (77.7) across 227 attempts in 13 games (includes postseason), recording 1,068 rushing yards (4.9 YPC) and 10 touchdowns in the process. He also recorded a rushing first down or touchdown on 27.1% of his attempts and averaged 3.02 yards after contact per attempt, ranking eighth and 12th, respectively, among the 33 backs with 100 or more carries in Weeks 6-21.
