Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor’s stand-off with the team has taken another unexpected turn as the Colts are considering suspending him for conduct detrimental to the team. This latest development comes amid the Colts’ belief that Taylor is staging a contract “hold-in” and is actually healthy enough to practice.
Taylor, who was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, is currently not on the team’s 53-man roster. The Colts had hoped to trade Taylor, but they did not receive their desired asking price in trade talks. The running back has been on the PUP list since reporting to training camp, citing an ankle injury from last season.
Despite undergoing surgery in late January, Taylor is expected to be eight months removed from the procedure by the end of his minimum four-game stay on the PUP list. However, it seems that Taylor’s frustration with the Colts’ refusal to engage in contract negotiations this spring has led to this stand-off.
The running back market has made it difficult for Taylor to find a trade partner that meets both the Colts’ compensation demands and his own desires for a new contract. Nevertheless, the Colts still have the option to trade Taylor before the NFL deadline on October 31.
The situation between Taylor and the Colts has become increasingly tense, with the team now contemplating suspending the running back. This twist further adds to the uncertainty surrounding Taylor’s future with the Colts.
As the drama continues to unfold, fans and analysts alike are left speculating about what will happen next. Will Taylor and the Colts be able to resolve their differences and come to a contract agreement? Or will the team ultimately decide to part ways with the talented running back?
One thing is for sure – the situation with Jonathan Taylor and the Indianapolis Colts is far from over, and the upcoming deadline may prove to be a crucial turning point in this ongoing saga. Stay tuned to Forever Sports Online for the latest updates on this developing story.
