Two more members of Colts’ secondary injured in first half

NFL: Detroit Lions at Indianapolis Colts Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts were already super thin in the secondary heading in to today’s game, and it’s even worse now.

Vontae Davis, Darius Butler, and Clayton Geathers all were inactive today, and in the first half Patrick Robinson and T.J. Green were both injured as well. Robinson suffered a concussion, while Green suffered a knee sprain - and both are out for the game.

That’s obviously a huge blow, as the Colts have now lost another starting corner and another starting safety. At cornerback, the Colts have just three players left healthy: Antonio Cromartie, Darryl Morris, and Rashaan Melvin. Two of those guys were signed this past week, while Cromartie was signed after training camp. That’s not good. At safety, the Colts are down to just Mike Adams, Winston Guy, and Matthias Farley (who also was just signed last week). That’s not good either.

It’s unclear of the extent of Green’s injury, so that’s certainly something to watch. As for Robinson, he’ll now enter the concussion protocol, so it’s unclear when he’ll return as it’s just whenever he passes the protocol. The more pressing concern right now, however, is today’s game, as the Colts are even more thin in the secondary than they were before the game.
