The Colts played their best defense in a month yesterday, and now they’re immediately going to have to replace a member of that group.
According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Colts defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois will miss the next two to four weeks with a foot sprain.
The Colts gave up 162 rushing yards, but they created four turnovers, allowing them to effectively seal the AFC South title.
Jean-Francois was part of their aggressive free agent haul in March, and has been a solid addition. Without him, their depth will be tested, though his time frame should allow him back for the playoffs.
The Colts also lost running back Dan Herron to a torn pectoral muscle, which will send him to injured reserve.
