In his third NFL season, Hines delivered career highs in rushing attempts (95), rushing yards (455), yards per carry (4.8), rushing touchdowns (3), receptions (65), receiving yards (490), and receiving touchdowns (4).

In the Colts’ recent 27-24 wild card playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills, Hines had six carries for 75 yards as well as one reception for eight yards.
Hines had produced solid performances in his first two seasons in the league. He completed the 2019 season on the Colts with 52 carries for 199 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to go along with 44 receptions for 320 receiving yards.
In his rookie season in 2018, Hines had 314 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, 63 receptions, 425 receiving yards, and two receiving touchdowns.
