Colts RB Zack Moss ruled out vs. Falcons

Moss was officially ruled out on Saturday, December 23. The Falcons will host the Colts at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Christmas Eve.

The former Utah star suffered a forearm injury during the first half of Indianapolis home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 16.

In late July, Moss suffered a broken arm during training camp.

With 11:21 remaining in the first half in Week 15, Colts quarterback Gardner Minshew II found Moss in the flat before the former Ute powered his way through a would-be tackle and into the end zone for a 16-yard touchdown reception.

Moss was pulled down by a horsecollar tackle near the goal line and was injured on the play. The running back did not return to the game.

Indianapolis went on to defeat Pittsburgh, 30-13.

With the win, the Colts improved their record to 8-6.

Moss finished the game with three receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown. On the ground, Moss had four carries for 13 yards.

This season, Moss has run the ball 177 times for 764 yards and five touchdowns. He’s also hauled in 27 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns.

Indianapolis’ game against Atlanta will start at 11 a.m. (MT). The game will be broadcast on FOX and NFL Sunday Ticket.
