Colts safety Julian Blackmon downgraded to ‘out’ with a shoulder injury

Indianapolis Colts safety Julian Blackmon has been downgraded to out after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons:

Blackmon was injured early in the second quarter, after tackling Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson on a 3rd and 14th catch, and he did not return.

Colts 2nd-year safety Nick Cross initially replaced Blackmon.

On the season, Blackmon has 87 tackles (65 solo), 5 tackles for loss, 4 interceptions, 8 passes defensed, and two fumble recoveries during 14 starts.

Blackmon’s had a bit of a breakout year for the Colts and is at the end of a contract year.
