Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor was wearing a walking boot at practice Tuesday but is still aiming to play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.

"I definitely do plan to play, but if you can't go, you can't go," Taylor said, according to ESPN's Stephen Holder. "That's why you have to get as much treatment as you can."

Taylor was unable to finish Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans due to an ankle injury. Tests on his injured ankle reportedly came back negative Monday.

Head coach Frank Reich told reporters the prospect of Taylor doing further damage if he were to play Thursday is "not a concern at this point."

Nyheim Hines would likely receive an expanded workload if Taylor is unable to suit up.

After leading the NFL in rushing yards last season, Taylor has put up 328 yards over four games this year.

Indianapolis heads into Week 5 with a 1-2-1 record.
