Jonathan Taylor Undergoes Thumb Surgery, Expected to Miss 2-3 Weeks

Well – that escalated quickly. Fresh on the heels of his 91-yard, two-touchdown performance this past weekend against the Buccaneers, Taylor is set to undergo thumb surgery that will sideline him for the most important stretch of fantasy regular season games this year. The hope for the Colts reportedly is to keep Taylor off of IR to avoid having him miss four games as the Colts and fantasy teams alike push for playoff contention, but it would be naive to cling hard and fast to the 2-3 week timeline just days removed from the injury occurring. As for the immediate future of the Colts backfield, the message reads simply: if Zack Moss is on your waiver wire, go and get him now. Moss had four top-10 finishes at the position in his first five games from Week 2-6, scoring at least 17 points in each of those games. He’s slated to step right back into that familiar role after a quiet middle of the season spent behind Jonathan Taylor. Taylor’s fantasy managers should be prepared to have Taylor out until the fantasy playoffs begin in Week 15 at the earliest.
