Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Indianapolis Colts starting running back Marlon Mack exited Sunday's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hand injury.

He rushed 14 times for 109 yards, including four runs of at least 10 yards, and a touchdown before leaving with the injury. The Colts quickly ruled out Mack for the remainder of the game.

May 3 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts invited former Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly to rookie minicamp. Indianapolis is having rookie camp from Friday through Sunday. Kelly was at the camp Friday on a tryout basis. Kelly -- the nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly -- was a seventh-round pick by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Kelly completed 66.7 percent of his throws for 466 yards, three scores and two touchdowns in four preseason appearances. He appeared in one regular season game last year for the Broncos, taking a knee for a one-yard loss. The Broncos released Kelly after he was arrested for trespassing in October.

Oct. 13 (UPI) -- The Indianapolis Colts have elevated defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. Indianapolis announced the move on Saturday. The Colts waived linebacker Skai Moore in a corresponding transaction. Muhammad, 23, was a sixth round pick by the New Orleans Saints in the 2017 NFL Draft.

He played in the first four games -- starting twice -- for the Colts, logging eight tackles and a tackle for a loss. Muhammad had one tackle in four games as a rookie in 2017 for the Saints. Moore was signed by the Colts in May as an undrafted free agent. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker had two tackles in four games this season for In...

Texans claim first win in overtime over Colts

Sports
INDIANAPOLIS -- At the end of a wildly entertaining, exhausting overtime test of endurance, Indianapolis Colts first-year head coach Frank Reich wasn't about to settle for a tie. Even when facing fourth-and-4 at his own 43 with just 27 seconds remaining, Reich didn't hesitate. He went for it. And didn't second-guess himself when it backfired. In a game where Andrew Luck set franchise records for passing, his final fateful throw was too low and bounced incomplete. The Houston Texans completed a 24-yard pass to DeAndre Hopkins and spiked the ball to stop the clock, which precipitated Ka'imi Fairbairn kicking a 37-yard field goal with one second remaining in overtime for a stunning 37-34 road victory on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. "We're not playing to tie," Reich said. "We're going for ...
