Let go Monday

Wilkins was waived by the Colts on Monday.

Analysis: Wilkins appeared in four games with the Colts this season, earning 13 carries for 58 yards, while also making six catches on 8 targets for 29 yards. His departure comes as the team has opted to sign Jake Funk to the active roster from their practice squad.

Gets eight touches in loss

Wilkins had six carries for 23 yards and two receptions for 14 yards in Sunday's loss at the Giants.

Analysis: Wilkins played on ten of the offense's 58 snaps and had more carries than Deon Jackson amid a blowout loss (Zack Moss had 15 carries in a starting role). He could get a significant share of the playing time in the season finale this week against Houston, but it's hard to predict what the Colts will do on offense in a meaningless game.

Signed to active roster

The Colts signed Wilkins to the active roster Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Wilkins was elevated for Weeks 9 and 10, totaling six rushing attempts for 31 yards while securing four of five targets for 15 yards across 21 offensive snaps. However, he'll get an official spot on the active roster with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) on IR for the remainder of the campaign. Wilkins figures to serve as a depth option behind Zack Moss and Deon Jackson.

Rejoins practice squad

The Colts sent Wilkins back to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Wilkins played just three offensive snaps in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Raiders, but he was fairly productive in the limited role, turning three carries into 18 yards. He actually tallied the second-most totes among Indianapolis running backs, as Jonathan Taylor (60 snaps) functioned as the workhorse with 22 carries for 147 yards and a touchdown. Wilkins' chance to be elevated again Week 11 may depend on whether Deon Jackson (knee) is able to play.

Three carries in backup role

Wilkins had three carries for 18 yards in Sunday's win at Las Vegas.

Analysis: Wilkins played just three snaps on offense and Zack Moss played just one snap as Jonathan Taylor (60 snaps) got almost all the playing time now that he's healthy and Nyhiem Hines has been traded. Wilkins looks like the primary backup as long as Deon Jackson is out, but that may be a very small role barring another Taylor injury.

Suiting up at Las Vegas

Indianapolis elevated Wilkins from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at the Raiders.

Analysis: It will be the second consecutive week Wilkins is active for the Colts after he picked up 28 scrimmage yards on seven touches in Week 9. After Week 10, he will only be eligible for one more elevation from the practice squad before he would have to be signed to the team's active roster in order to suit up.

Reverts to practice squad

The Colts reverted Wilkins to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Wilkins saw his first action of the season in Sunday's Week 9 loss to New England, playing 19 of 62 offensive snaps and finishing with three carries for 13 yards and four catches on five targets for 15 yards. His presence was needed in the absence of Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and with Zack Moss not yet ready to play following his trade to the club. Wilkins' chance of another elevation in Week 10 will likely hinge on Taylor's availability, though Phillip Lindsay is also on the team's practice squad and could receive consideration if Taylor is sidelined.

Totals 28 yards in season debut

Wilkins rushed the ball three times for 13 yards in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Patriots. He added four receptions on five targets for 15 yards.

Analysis: Wilkins was active for the first time this season and operated as the primary backup to Deon Jackson. His day was highlighted by his work as a pass catcher, as he led the team with four receptions -- though none of those looks came down the field. It's unclear whether Jonathan Taylor (ankle) or Zack Moss (ankle) will be active for a Week 10 matchup against the Raiders, and their status will likely dictate Wilkins' opportunity in that matchup.

Elevated for Week 9

Wilkins was elevated from the Colts' practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Wilkins joined the Colts' practice squad Wednesday to provide depth after the team traded away Nyheim Hines. With Jonathan Taylor (ankle) sidelined, Wilkins and Phillip Lindsay are expected to back up Deon Jackson out of the backfield.

Joins Indianapolis' practice squad

Indianapolis signed Wilkins to its practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Wilkins was drafted by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2018 Draft and rushed for over 300 yards in each of his first three seasons in Indianapolis. However, he saw just one offensive snap across five appearances -- split between Indianapolis and Tennessee -- last year and ended the 2021 campaign on the Titans' practice squad.

Nov 2, 2022 8:56 AM EST

Let go by Tennessee

The Titans released Wilkins on Tuesday, Turron Davenport of reports.

Analysis: Wilkins ended last season on the Titans' practice squad and signed a contract with Tennessee in March, but he's among the first wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 85-man roster deadline. The 2018 fifth-round pick played just one offensive snap across five appearances -- split between Indianapolis and Tennessee -- last year after rushing for at least 300 yards and one touchdown in each of his first three seasons in the NFL with the Colts.

Aug 16, 2022 1:29 PM EST

Inks deal with Titans

Wilkins signed a contract with the Titans on Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wilkins began the 2021 season with the Colts and closed out the year with Tennessee's practice squad. He appeared in just one game for the Titans last year but will have the chance to compete for a backup role behind Derrick Henry heading into 2022.

Mar 18, 2022 9:26 PM EST

Returns to practice squad

The Titans returned Wilkins from the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wilkins was elevated from the Titans' practice squad and appeared on 13 special teams snaps in Week 18 versus the Texans. This was the first game Wilkins appeared in for the Titans this season as the running back has not recorded a carry since Week 14 of 2020.

Jan 17, 2022 2:14 PM EST

Lands on injured list

The Titans placed Wilkins (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wilkins was elevated to the Titans' active roster in Week 18 but apparently sustained an injury during the regular-season finale. The nature and severity of the issue aren't yet clear, but Jeremy McNichols was signed to the Titans' practice squad Tuesday.

Jan 11, 2022 2:45 PM EST

Sent back to practice squad

Wilkins reverted to Tennessee's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Wilkins was on the field in Week 18 against Houston for 13 snaps on special teams, appearing in his first action of the 2021 campaign. He's yet to record a carry through his first two seasons in the NFL.

Jan 10, 2022 9:20 PM EST

Moves to active roster

Wilkins was elevated from the Titans' practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: The Titans opted not to active Derrick Henry (foot) off injured reserve which set the stage for Wilkins to make his first appearance with another AFC South squad. Don't expect the lumbering Wilkins to see a significant amount of carries unless the Titans see a sizable lead Sunday in the quest to lock up the No. 1 seed.

Jan 8, 2022 11:01 AM EST

Finds new home

Wilkins signed with the Titans' practice squad Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wilkins needed about 24 hours to find a new job after he was cut from the Jaguars practice squad Tuesday. The four-year veteran was let go by the Colts on Oct. 30 after his role had turned non-existent behind Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines and undrafted rookie Deon Jackson. Not to mention the veteran Marlon Mack, who is still on the roster. Wilkins will work to make an impact in Tennessee and find his way to the active roster.

Dec 8, 2021 1:50 PM EST

Gets cut Tuesday

Wilkins was cut from the Jaguars' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Wilkins signed with the Jaguars on Nov. 8 after he was waived by the Colts on Oct. 30, in the middle of his fourth year with the club. In a corresponding move the Jaguars signed running back BJ Emmons to their practice squad.

Dec 7, 2021 1:51 PM EST

Lands with Jacksonville

Jacksonville signed Wilkins to its practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The 27-year-old went unclaimed off waivers after being cut loose by Indianapolis following last week's trade deadline, but he didn't take long to find a new home elsewhere. Though he won't immediately be added to Jacksonville's 53-man roster, Wilkins could be a candidate to join the Jaguars in Week 10 for a game against his former team if lead back James Robinson (heel) is sidelined for a second straight contest. Carlos Hyde, Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo are the healthy backs currently on the Jacksonville roster.

Nov 8, 2021 1:39 PM EST

Waived by Indy

Wilkins has been waived by the Colts.

Analysis: Wilkins will presumably revert to the team's practice squad should he ultimately go unclaimed off waivers. With four healthy backs on the roster, it looks like he was the odd man out.
