The Colts have been so banged up in the secondary over the first two weeks of the season that it seemed like they might have to start pulling people out of the stands to fill out their defensive backfield.
Better days may not be far off, however. The Colts got three of their injured defensive backs back on the practice field Wednesday, including cornerback Vontae Davis.
Davis has been out since hurting his ankle last month and initial reports were that he’d miss the entire month of September before he’d be healthy enough to play. The next few days should determine whether he’ll beat that estimate and make it into the lineup for the third week of the season.
Cornerback Patrick Robinson also returned to practice, although he did so in a non-contact jersey as he continues to make his way back from a concussion. Safety T.J. Green rounded out the trio of defensive backs hitting the practice field. The rookie missed last week’s game with a knee injury.
