The Indianapolis Colts had some encouraging news on Wednesday when running back Marlon Mack returned to practice after missing the last two contests following hand surgery.

Mack sustained a hand injury during the third quarter of Indianapolis' 33-13 victory over Jacksonville on Nov. 17 and underwent surgery the following day.

The third-year veteran, a fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft, participated in practice for the first time since the injury on Wednesday. Multiple news outlets reported that head coach Frank Reich stated "there's a chance" Mack could play Sunday when the Colts (6-6) visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-7).

The 23-year-old has 192 carries for 862 rushing yards (ranks 10th in NFL) and four touchdowns in 10 games this season. He also has 12 catches for 76 yards.
