Robert Mathis doesn’t return from locker room


The Colts’ chances of pulling off a comeback over the Dolphins might have taken a big hit.

Linebacker Robert Mathis did not return from the locker room at the start of the third quarter. He has a back injury and his return is being called questionale.

Mathis had a sack in the first half of his first game back from an ankle injury. Mathis missed the last three Colts games, but he was able to get back on the field this week until being forced to leave the game again. Jerry Hughes has taken his spot on the defense.

Center Samson Satele also sustained a back injury for the Colts. His return is also questionable and A.Q. Shipley has taken over for Indianapolis. The score remains 17-13 Dolphins early in the third quarter.
