Austin Collie, officially, can not catch a break.
The Colts wide receiver, who made his debut yesterday after his latest concussion, promptly tore his right patella tendon and will miss the rest of the season.
Collie was active for the first time yesterday but did not start, working behind Donnie Avery. Rookie wideout T.Y. Hilton played well in his stead as the third. The Colts were easing him back in after a preseason concussion, which was at least his third documented one.
He’s shown a willingness to come back when others want him to stop, but this time it might not be his call. He’s in the last year of his contract with the Colts, and may have a hard time finding someone to take a chance on him after an extensive rehab.
While no roster move has been announced yet, the Colts signed wide receiver Nathan Palmer off the 49ers practice squad earlier in the day.
