Nix (knee) will serve as a run blocker and special-teams player for the Colts, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan reports.
ANALYSIS
It won't be much of a change for Nix after he garnered just four carries and 12 receptions in 60 games for Pittsburgh over the past five years. The 28-year-old should again have a heavy presence on special teams (300-plus snaps in 2017 and 2018) after missing most of last season with a knee injury.

2020 NFL Team Previews: Pittsburgh Steelers
69 days ago
Ben Roethlisberger is back to reclaim the starting QB job in Pittsburgh. Time may be ticking on Big Ben, however, as he seeks a third Super Bowl ring.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
2016
2015
2014
Over his four years in Pittsburgh, Nix has amassed a total four yards and a touchdown on four carries, adding another 65 yards and a score on 10 receptions. His talents may not show up too often in the box score, but as a fullback, his ability to create holes for others to run through is invaluable.
Nix played in 25 games during his first two seasons in Pittsburgh, which has resulted in just four receptions for 21 yards and no rushing attempts. He’ll get an opportunity to be the starting fullback this season, but still has no fantasy value.
It was an unimpressive rookie campaign for Nix, who finished with no rushes and just two receptions for 16 yards. He is expected to once again backup Will Johnson at fullback, which means he has no fantasy value.
Nix will be hard-pressed to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
