Jonathan Taylor, a running back for the Indianapolis Colts, is dissatisfied and wants to quit the team. The Non-Football Injury (NFI) list, according to seasoned Colts insider Mike Chappell, is one way the administration has found to keep him from leaving.

After exercising by herself in Arizona, Taylor sustained a back injury. He continues to experience pain in his ankle and is currently listed as PUP (Physically Unable to Perform).

The change is important because it allows the Colts to compel him to have his contract extended to the end of 2024 without him having to participate in a down. Withholding his entire 2023 compensation will accomplish this. Taylor has asked for an extension through his agent Malki Kawa, just like other running backs.

What is NFI?

PUPs (Physically Unable to Perform) are injuries that occurred while participating in football-related activities prior to the start of camp. Non-Football Injury (NFl) can refer to rookies who are still dealing with a persistent injury from their university years, as well as injuries sustained outside of football, such as those sustained in domestic disputes.

Both types of players must receive medical clearance before being able to join the roster again; however, once this has happened, they are not permitted to do so again. Once the regular season begins, there are a few changes:

PUP players must sit out for four weeks, while NFI players must miss six. Teams have a five-week window to decide whether to permit PUP players to practice. However, NFI players cannot be activated until after their team’s eighth game. They can resume practicing right away.

After practice resumes, teams will have three more weeks to decide whether to add these players to the active roster. If the weeks pass without a decision, these players will be suspended for the entire season.
