The Colts do not trade Jonathan Taylor; the running back remains on the PUP list.
The Indianapolis Colts did not trade Jonathan Taylor on Tuesday because they did not receive a fair offer for their All-Pro running back, sources told ESPN.
Without a trade Tuesday, Taylor remains on the physically unable to perform list and will miss at least the first four games of the season.
Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, and Los Angeles Rams games will be missed by Taylor.
The Colts may be able to move Taylor before the Oct. 31 trade deadline.
Last week, the Colts allowed Taylor and his representatives to negotiate with other clubs for a trade, an unusual approach to player shopping. The NFL's deadline to cut rosters from 90 to 53 players coincided with the team's 4 p.m. Tuesday deadline for an agreement.
Since Taylor had been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list, the Colts had until then to decide his roster status. Taylor hasn't practiced or played in preseason since ankle surgery.
Training camp general manager Chris Ballard was asked about Taylor's contract. "We'll make those decisions when we need to," he said.
