The Indianapolis Colts lost 30-14 to the Kansas City Chiefs today, but they also lost some players to injury during the course of the game.
Cornerback Vontae Davis and right tackle Joe Reitz both suffered concussions during the game, meaning that they will go into the concussion protocol. On the final offensive play of the game, wide receiver Phillip Dorsett suffered an injury that kept him down for a while and saw him walk off the field gingerly, but the extent of his injury is currently unknown. And safety Mike Adams is dealing with a groin injury, one that the Indianapolis Star’s Stephen Holder described as a “pretty nasty” injury, and Holder added that Adams was heading to get the injury checked out after the game.
Adams came back and finished the game with his injury, so hopefully that means it’s not too serious. Another player who also returned to the game despite being injured was wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who missed some time early in the game with a hamstring injury. Hilton returned but was clearly hampered by the issue, and he finished the game with just one catch for 20 yards on six targets (several of which were catchable).
We’ll have to wait until later this week (either Monday or Wednesday) to find out more details about these injuries, but there are several that are worth paying attention to. But with Davis and Reitz both suffering concussions, we know that they’ll enter the concussion protocol, putting their status for next week’s game in doubt.
Davis was injured on a Kansas City touchdown, as it appeared T.J. Green came in late and hit him in the head. Reitz was injured late in the game on one of the many sacks the Colts gave up.
