This comes after a summer of back-and-forth between Taylor and his agent and Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Taylor has been injured thus far in training camp and the preseason, but he was expected to travel with the team for joint practices with the Philadelphia Eagles later this week.
Shane Steichen, during his Sunday update, says RB Jonathan Taylor will travel to Philadelphia this week for joint practice with the Eagles, but he remains on the PUP list.

The next logical question will be what the trade market is for Taylor.
One thing that was emphasized to me—the Colts aren’t going to give RB Jonathan Taylor away. They’d do a trade at the right price. So again, it’ll probably mean Taylor finding a contract elsewhere AND a suitor willing to give Indy a good return on top of that.

As noted, the running back market has taken a severe hit though things have smoothed out recently with Saquon Barkley getting a contract from the Giants, Josh Jacobs reportedly rejoining Raiders practice shortly, and free agents Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook getting deals from new teams.
