NFL star who earned $17 million over the course of his career and was unemployed due to his surprise return to the Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are desperate for a running back following the holdout of Jonathan Taylor.

The star running back will be out for at least another three weeks, leaving the team to consider a former offensive rookie of the year.

The Colts have been in contact with former rushing champion Kareem Hunt.

The Pro Bowler last played with the Cleveland Browns in 2022 and began his career with the Kansas City Chiefs.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the franchise has also been in contact with former 1,000-yard rusher Leonard Fournette.

“With multiple injuries at running back, the Colts are still monitoring the market,” Fowler wrote.

“They have been in contact with free agents Kareem Hunt and Leonard Fournette.

“This is a position to keep an eye on in Indy as the Colts work through their options.”

For the Colts, halfbacks Deon Jackson and Jake Funk are the only two healthy defenders.

Zack Moss has started training again after an arm injury kept him out for weeks.

When Moss returns this week, he is expected to take over the backcourt immediately.

In Jackson’s first start with the team in Week 1, the starter ran for 14 yards on 13 carries.

The Colts lost their season opener to their division rival, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

They lost their season debut 31:21.

Their next game is this Sunday when they take on another division opponent, the Houston Texans.
