INDIANAPOLIS (WMTV) - Former Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor will not be traded by the Indianapolis Colts.

Sources say the team did not find what they considered a fair-value offer for the All-Pro running back.

Taylor will remain on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List with an ankle injury. Since he was not removed from the PUP by Tuesday’s deadline, he will miss the first four games of the season against the Jaguars, Texans, Ravens, and Rams.

The next and best opportunity for the trade will be before the league’s trade deadline on October 31. If there is no deal by Halloween, Indianapolis could franchise tag Taylor and attempt to trade him next offseason.
