Former Badger Jonathan Taylor scores first career TD with Colts
In just the second game of his professional career, Jonathan Taylor has found the end zone.
Early in the second quarter of Sunday’s matchup between the Minnesota Viking and Indianapolis Colts, Taylor scored on a 5-yard carry to give the Colts a 7-3 advantage in the first half. It marks the first time Taylor has crossed the goal line in the NFL.
That touchdown was part of a productive first half for the rookie running back, totaling 75 yards on 18 carries, and adding 9 yards on 2 catches. Indianapolis took a 15-3 lead into the locker room.
The first of many for @JayT23. 🙌

Taylor had a strong showing in his first game with the Colts last Sunday. He totaled 67 receiving yards on 6 receptions, and added 22 yards on 9 carries. He did not reach the end zone in the season opener and Indianapolis fell 27-20 to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Taylor is no stranger to the end zone. During his career at Wisconsin, the running back totaled 6,174 rushing yards and scored 50 rushing touchdowns in three seasons. He was a second-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, going No. 41 overall.
