NFL Notes: Colts, Eagles, Ravens



Colts owner Jim Irsay believes second-year RB Marlon Mack could be in for a big season and he wouldn’t be surprised if he totaled 1,500 rushing yards.

“I think Mack has a chance to be a special guy this year,” Irsay said, via the Indianapolis Star. “Depends on how many times you want to feed him the ball, 16-20 touches on the ground [per game] and I could see him approaching 1,500 yards [for the year]. I really could. He is just better than you think he is every time you watch him.”


Ian Rapoport wouldn’t be surprised to see the Eagles hold QB Carson Wentz out of the entire preseason, as he works his way back from a torn ACL.

“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if we did not see him in a preseason game,” Rapoport said. “Why would they? Why risk him? And that’s one thing that’s been pretty clear here.

“He is such a big part of their future,” Rapoport added. “It is so important to make sure that he is their quarterback not for the next 10 days, but for the next 10 or 15 years that they’re going to make sure to be cautious before putting him out there in harm’s way. So, for the preseason, you may see a lot of shots of Carson Wentz watching, and from everyone I’ve spoken with, that is absolutely fine with them.


  • On Saturday, the Ravens officially activated G Marshal Yanda from the PUP list.
  • Ravens HC John Harbaugh said of Yanda’s timetable: “He may start with individual [drills], possibly tomorrow. But he won’t be going against the Rams at all.” (Jamison Hensley)
