The Indianapolis Colts must figure the second time is a charm because they just re-signed running back Christine Michael.

For those who need a little catching up, Michael spent a brief stint with the Colts last offseason until he became injured and landed on IR.
Never even got a glimpse of this guy last year. Had a freak injury in offseason workouts and went to IR. https://t.co/Jcr8UuM4Kv

Prior to his gig in Indianapolis that was cut short, Michael last played a split season for the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers in 2016. He finished that year with a total of 583 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns.
Seattle is also where Michael began his career as a second-round pick from 2013. Though he also played a brief five games with the Dallas Cowboys in 2015.
The Colts must feel as if Michael will be a contributor to an offense that let running back Frank Gore walk in free agency. As it stands, second-year running back Marlon Mack is the No. 1 guy.
Health here for Michael is clearly a concern that the Colts seem willing to look past. He is just 27-years-old, which is at least a plus.
