Yesterday, some Colts fans noticed a since-deleted social media post from Colts cornerback Vontae Davis that appeared to show him recovering from some sort of injury or surgery.

Today, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed after his press conference to ESPN's Mike Wells that Davis did indeed undergo a surgical procedure to "clean up" some things in his foot, though it's not expected to be a long-term injury.

Davis has spent the past four seasons with the Colts after a team acquired him in a trade prior to the 2012 season from the Miami Dolphins.  Since then, Davis has really emerged into a top-tier cornerback in the NFL and has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past two years.  Davis has become a tremendous number one corner for the Colts, and especially considering the uncertainty at the other cornerback spot, it's good to hear that it's nothing major for Davis but rather what sounds like a relatively minor procedure.

The Colts will be looking for someone to play opposite of Davis this offseason, as Greg Toler is set to become a free agent and the Colts aren't expected to bring him back.  That's an important area to upgrade, but the nice thing for Indianapolis is that they already have their number one guy in place in Vontae Davis.
