The tall task of trying to take down the New England Patriots has gotten even more difficult for the Indianapolis Colts. That's because this offense will be without star running back Jonathan Taylor for the Week 9 tilt.

When healthy, Taylor is one of the more electric running backs in the game. However, he's been quite banged up this year, which has been rough to see.

It's been a year to forget for the Colts, who have also moved on from Matt Ryan as the team's starting quarterback. Hopefully Taylor can get himself back on the field as soon as possible. His teammates need him.
