Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor won't play on Thursday Night Football against the Denver Broncos due to an ankle injury, the team announced.

Taylor suffered the ankle injury during the Colts' loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The 23-year-old was in a walking boot at practice on Tuesday and mentioned he was hoping to play on Thursday.

"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."

Colts' running back Nyheim Hines is expected to shoulder the load on Thursday night with Taylor out.

Taylor has 81 carries for 328 yards and one touchdown through four games this season.

The Colts' rushing attack is off to a slow start, ranking 27th in rushing yards per game.
