Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack tore his ACL in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season and will miss the rest of the year.
Mack is the Colts starting RB and the team was looking for him to lead their rushing attack this year. He was only able to string together four carries for 26 yards and three catches for another 30 yards before the injury occurred.
Mack had a breakout season last year with the Colts, rushing for 1,091 yards as the team’s starting running back.
Mack’s entire career thus far has been marred with injuries. In his four years in the league, he has never played a complete 16-game season.
The running back is scheduled to become a free agent next season, and since he hasn’t been able to stay healthy enough to show the Colts that he’s worth a contract extension, expect Mack to be looking for work elsewhere come free agency in 2021.
Not only did the Colts lose their starting running back for the year, Indianapolis ended up losing Sunday’s game as well to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who many predicted would be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.
