Colts running back Jonathan Taylor on Wednesday was named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for Week 6 of the 2021 NFL Season.

Taylor rushed for 145 yards on 14 carries with two touchdowns in the Colts' 31-3 win over the Houston Texans. His 83-yard run is the longest in Colts' franchise history and stands as the longest rushing play of the 2021 NFL season to date.

Fans vote for the FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week each week during the NFL season, and Taylor was selected as the Week 6 winner over the Minnesota Vikings' Dalvin Cook and New England Patriots' Damien Harris. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was named the FedEx Air Player of the Week for Week 6.

FedEx will work with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to make a $2,000 donation in Taylor and Prescott's names to Historically Black College and Universities. The Thurgood Marshall Fund is the largest organization that exclusively represents the HBCU community; during the 2021 NFL season, select HBCUs will receive grants totaling more than $100,000 to support needs-based scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year.
