“Back-Up of the Game” is running back Robert Turbin

1 post in this topic

This week’s “Back-Up of the Game” presented by Venyu is running back Robert Turbin.

If we were picking a yearlong winner for this award, Turbin would have to be the vote.

No player on the Indy roster this year filled his role better than the fifth-year running back.

Whether it’s short yardage, pass protecting on third down or making plays in the passing game, Turbin has finally given the Colts a productive backup running back.

In Sunday’s win over the Jaguars, Turbin once again found the end zone while excelling in short yardage situations.

Turbin finished 2016 with seven rushing touchdowns and one receiving score.

It’s going to be a very interesting off-season for Turbin.

When Turbin signed a one-year deal with the Colts last spring, he expressed a desire to one day become a starting running.

Well, with Frank Gore still under contract, a chance at that in Indianapolis appears to be on hold through 2017.

The question for Turbin now becomes what does the open market look like for him. If there are no realistic starting chances elsewhere, the fit in Indy was pretty seamless in 2016.
