Colts Vontae Davis And Coby Fleener Are OUT For Week 11 Against the Patriots

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Coby Fleener and Vontae Davis both ruled out again this week. Neither have played since Week 8 against the Titans.

I could literally cut and paste the same text week after week when it comes to the injury status of rookie tight end Coby Fleener and veteran corner Vontae Davis. Just like weeks 9 and 10, both will be out for this week, per Colts interim head coach Bruce Arians at his Wednesday presser.

Fleener is battling a shoulder injury. Davis has a knee ailment. The fourth year corner from Illinois, brought to the Colts via a highly publicized trade during the preseason, has only played in three games from start to finish this season.

With Fleener out, this means the Weslye Saunders will see more time as the second tight end. Dwayne Allen will be the go-to tight end on passing downs. Cassius Vaughn will get the start at corner with Davis out.

Earlier this week, the Colts placed veteran corner Jerraud Powers on injured reserve. The team also promoted tight end Kyle Miller from the practice squad. As we noted at the time, Miller's promotion did not inspire confidence that Fleener would be available to play this week in Foxbourgh against the New England Patriots.

Meanwhile, rookie Josh Chapman was activated this week after spending much of the season on the physically unable to perform list (PUP). However, Coach Arians said that the Colts will not "rush" Chapman back, and it is possible he may not play Sunday.
