2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Ferguson, an undrafted free agent from Illinois, beat the odds last season to earn a spot on the Colts 53-man roster. He wasn't a consistent member of the offense, rushing for 20 yards on 15 attempts. However, he did prove to be a valuable pass-catcher out of the backfield, recording 20 receptions for 136 yards. Now heading into his second season, he'll look to take on a larger offensive role behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin, though he will have to compete with Marlon Mack and Christine Michael to secure a roster spot.

2016

Ferguson, an undrafted rookie, signed on with the Colts in the offseason with the hopes of battling for carries behind veteran Frank Gore, who may see a decline in action given his age. Nonetheless, Ferguson will have to compete with a crowded backfield made up of reserves such as Robert Turbin, Trey Williams, and Jordan Todman. At 23, Ferguson is a younger option in the Colts' rushing attack that could be valuable if given opportunities.
