This injury to Taylor is just another unfortunate reality about the Colts’ 2022 season, which has been plagued by injuries and loss across the board.
After their historic loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Colts find themselves with a record of 4-9-1 and are in third place for the AFC South race.
With this season all but over for the Colts, let’s look ahead to 2023.
Will The Colts Continue Their Losing Ways?
In 2023, the Colts will have their picks in the first and second rounds of the NFL Draft.
If the season were to end today, they would have the sixth overall pick, which has the potential to move to the third overall pick, depending on how the teams currently above them fare.
This premier pick gives the Colts the ability to draft a player who can instantly impact their team on either side of the ball.
With over $32 Million to spend in 2023, the Colts will have an opportunity to sign a few free agents in the off-season, who will hopefully complement their draft selections.
Overall, the Colts have a roster that could contend in 2023, given the right coaching.
Their new coach, Jeff Saturday, will likely not be asked back in 2023.
By potentially hiring a new coach, the Colts’ front office could instill hope in the franchise and players alike.
If the Colts end up searching for a new coach, who would be the best fit?
