Sources: Colts don’t trade Taylor; RB still on PUP

The Indianapolis Colts did not find what it felt was a fair value offer for running back Jonathan Taylor and it is not trading its All-Pro running back Tuesday, league sources told ESPN.

With no trade materializing Tuesday, Taylor is expected to remain on the physically unable to perform list, making him ineligible to play the first four games of the season.

Taylor now is expected to miss games against the Jacksonville Jaguars, at the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens and against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Colts’ next best opportunity to deal Taylor could be before the NFL’s Oct. 31 trade deadline.

If there’s no deal by then, the Colts could use the franchise tag on Taylor and try to trade him again next offseason.
