Colts running back Nyheim Hines will not return to Thursday Night Football. The team ruled him out with a concussion.

Hines was injured on the third play from scrimmage on a 5-yard reception from Matt Ryan. Broncos outside linebacker Nik Bonitto appeared to make helmet-to-helmet contact with Hines.

Hines stumbled once he got up, showing gross motor instability, before Colts offensive linemen Quenton Nelson and Bernhard Raimann held him up. The team’s medical staff took Hines directly to the training room for evaluation.

Hines started in place of the injured Jonathan Taylor and had one carry for 3 yards, dropped a pass and caught the 5-yard pass on third down.

Phillip Lindsay and Deon Jackson now are filling in for Hines. They have combined for four carries for 14 yards so far.

The Broncos lead the Colts 3-0 at the start of the second quarter.

  1. You think they only exercised caution due to what happen to Tua? Miami doctors would have cleared him

  2. He should demand a trade to the Dolphins so he doesn’t have to deal with those pesky doctors.

  3. The NFL product is going to get REALLY bad the rest of the season ….you stumble, you trip, you wobble , your done for the game. By the end of the season no one will be left to play the game.

  4. NFL defenders don’t know how to properly tackle. Instead they are just launching themselves in to the heads and knees of opponents which is why there are so many more injuries!

  5. It looked like a thumb injury to me. I’m surprised he’s not back in the game.

    That’s been a problem for a while now. The lack of fundamentals is a thing in college and in some ways, the pros as well. You are supposed to see your target and tackle/wrap up through it.

  7. Reason #847 why the running game is dead as anything more than complementary. The passing game is more than just preferred for scoring but also for player safety.

  8. In other news, Miami Dolphins team doctors don’t believe the hit to Nyheim Hines caused any neurological damage. When asked if they were concerned about the way he was walking, the doctors claimed he was just doing the Gritty after a big gain. More news as it’s breaking.
