Colts RB Deon Jackson quickly went from the 3rd string RB who saw the field almost exclusively on special teams to the starting RB after Nyheim Hines exited the game early vs the Broncos. Jackson impressed vs a top Broncos defense to the tune of 62 yards on only 13 carries. After a late scratch to both Taylor and Hines vs the Jaguars, Jackson had his 1st career NFL start and he made his presence felt.
