Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack is currently progressing through his rehab from a torn Achilles and is expected to be ready for training camp in 2021, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Mack faces a few big questions coming off of this injury but the biggest right now is which team he will play with in 2021. The former fourth-round pick is expected to hit free agency after the Colts saw Jonathan Taylor take over the backfield for the majority of 2020.

A team could take a chance on Mack and give him a prove-it deal in free agency, hoping that the injury didn’t take away too much of his explosiveness. If he can return to form without issue, he will be a steal for one team.

But an Achilles injury isn’t a great sign for a running back. So it is likely that Mack will get a low-cost prove-it deal with another team and try to earn a multi-year contract after that.

Mack has been a great asset for the Colts. He was the starting running back in 2018 and 2019, leading the way in the backfield alongside Nyheim Hines, who has turned into a strong pass-catcher.

Some team will take a chance on Mack and while it likely isn’t the Colts, that team could get upside if he’s good to go by training camp.
