Jerraud Powers exits Colts game with sprained knee

A largely uneventful first quarter between the Colts and Redskins has included a potentially eventual injury to a key member of Indy’s already undermanned secondary.

Cornerback Jerraud Powers has left the game with a sprained knee.  His return is questionable.

“Sprain” is a general term that encompasses all potential damage to the various knee ligaments.  So at this point it’s impossible to know exactly what the problem is, and how bad it could be.

The Colts have been trying to beef up their secondary, and it was Powers who complained during the offseason about the criticism the unit has received.  Depending on the severity of the injury, the Colts may have to replace him for Week One, when they face the Bears in Chicago.
