Colts RB Jonathan Taylor to start 2023 NFL season on PUP list after no trade, will miss at least four games

 Indianapolis Colts' attempts to trade running back Jonathan Taylor have been unsuccessful.

Jonathan Taylor will start the 2023 NFL season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

The Colts decided to keep Taylor on the PUP list after no trade offers met their expectations.

 Taylor's placement on the PUP list means he will miss at least the first four games of the 2023 season.

 Initially seeking a trade due to his contract situation, Taylor was allowed to explore trade options by the Colts.

 Despite increased communication, no enticing trade offer was received by the Colts for Taylor.

Taylor underwent offseason ankle surgery and spent the preseason on PUP.

 He was granted permission to seek a trade after requesting it and was seen in street clothes during joint practices.

Taylor's availability to the Colts' head coach Shane Steichen will be impacted for the first month of the season.

 The Story highlights the uncertainty regarding the future working relationship between Taylor and the Colts.
