Coach Frank Reich says Mack already has undergone a "procedure" and the team had not established a timetable for his return.

In the midst of a career season, Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack will miss an unspecified amount of time after suffering a fracture in his hand on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Colts confirmed on Monday.

Mack's 13-yard touchdown run, complete with a spin move, knotted the score at 7-7 with 35 seconds left in the first quarter. The severity of the fracture is uncertain and will be determined in a visit with specialists this week, but it's very unlikely Mack plays in Indianapolis' Thursday night game against the Houston Texans, Rapoport added.

Mack, 23, is in his third season with the Colts after being drafted by the team in the fourth round (143rd overall) of the 2017 draft.

Mack, 23, ranks fifth in the National Football League with 862 rushing yards, averaging 4.5 yards per carry with four scores in 10 games. He had already rushed for 109 yards and one touchdown before getting hurt.

The Colts (6-4) and Texans (6-4) are tied for the division lead entering Thursday's game in Houston.
