Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack reportedly will miss "weeks" after undergoing surgery on his fractured hand Monday morning, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

While Mack will not play in the Colts' pivotal Thursday night game against the Houston Texans, the injury is not expected to be season-ending, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. 

Mack suffered a fractured right hand in the 33–13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The injury was a "common fracture," per Rapoport, and Mack can return with a splint. 

Against the Jaguars, Mack finished the day with 14 carries for 109 yards and a 13-yard touchdown. 

The Colts will likely turn to Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines in Mack's absence.

Thursday night's game from NRG Stadium kicks off at 8:20 p.m. The Colts improved to 6–4 with the win on Sunday and currently sit atop the AFC South.
