Colts Injury News: TE Coby Fleener And CB Vontae Davis Out For At Least Two Weeks

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Two mid-season disappointments will now be out at least two weeks with injuries.

Indianapolis Colts Interim head coach Bruce Arians met with the media on Wednesday and informed them that rookie tight end Coby Fleener (shoulder) and veteran corner Vontae Davis (knee) are both listed as OUT for Sunday's critical game against the Miami Dolphins.

Both teams are 4-3 and looking to make a surprising playoff push.

Arians said the team hopes to have corner Darius Butler back this week. Butler has missed time with a shoulder injury.

Both Fleener and Davis have been disappointing so far this season. Davis came to Indianapolis is a highly publicized trade with the Dolphins during preseason this year. He's battled injuries and inconsistency in Indianapolis, which is pretty much what he had to battle in Miami.

Fleener, who was drafted with the 34th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, was a teammate of Andrew Luck's at Stanford. The thought was that the two of them would have instant chemistry in the NFL. That has not happened. Fleener has just 21 catches for 222 yards and zero touchdowns at the midpoint of the season. On a Colts offense starved of playmakers, Fleener was expected to be one early.

Look for fellow rookie Dwayne Allen, who has played better overall than Fleener despite being drafted later than the Stanford product (3rd round), to get more involved in the Colts passing game. Andrew Luck told media today he has full confidence in Allen picking up the slack for Fleener.
