Per Coach Reich, tests confirmed that DE Tyquan Lewis suffered a season-ending knee injury on Sunday.— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) October 31, 2022
Colts injury news: DL Tyquan Lewis is done for the year with a ruptured patella tendon. Same injury as last year, but the other leg.— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) October 31, 2022
Just brutal. Lewis had been playing terrific.
Frank Reich announced today that defensive end Tyquan Lewis suffered a season ending knee injury. Lewis tore his patella tendon on Sunday during the Washington Commanders game, which is his second season ending knee injury in back-to-back years. Lewis has been a bright spark all year on the defensive line for the Colts and his position versatility has been invaluable. Lewis is scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the year so it will be interesting to see if his latest injury affects the Colts wanting to re-sign him.
With Lewis landing on injured reserve the team activated Safety Trevor Denbow from injured reserve to the 53 man roster.
Jonathan Taylor did twist an ankle yesterday. Colts will continue to evaluate it, see how it responded today.— Joel A. Erickson (@JoelAErickson) October 31, 2022
Frank Reich then went on to discuss running back Jonathan Taylor who was injured during the game on Sunday. Reich said that Taylor twisted his ankle during the game and that the team is evaluating the injury. Taylor was limited during the game after twisting his ankle and aggravating his previous ankle injury. Taylor will be one to monitor on the practice injury report this week.
Reich has not talked about the trade deadline with Matt Ryan. Says Chris Ballard is leading the charge on that, "and I'm sure if there's any discussions to be had between Chris and I on that, we'll have them at the appropriate time." #Colts— George Bremer (@gmbremer) October 31, 2022
Frank Reich then went onto talk about the upcoming NFL trade deadline. Reich spoke about not having spoken to Quarterback Matt Ryan about trading him before the deadline. Colts GM Chris Ballard is the lead on team trades and Reich said that if there were any discussions to be had they would have them at the appropriate time. The NFL trade deadline is tomorrow at 4pm ET and the Colts if they plan to trade for/away anyone will have to do so before then.
