Vontae Davis confirms groin injury still a problem

When the Colts announced cornerback Vontae Davis didn’t make the trip to Houston to face the Texans last Sunday, they said the reason he stayed in Indianapolis was not related to injury.

PFT later reported that continued problems with the groin injury that forced Davis to miss games early in the season was actually the reason why he wouldn’t be in the lineup, although coach Chuck Pagano stuck to saying it was a “coach’s decision” when asked about Davis’ status after the game.

Davis spoke to reporters in Indy on Wednesday and, per multiple reports, confirmed that his groin injury is still causing problems on the field that led to Pagano’s decision to drop him down the depth chart. PFT has asked the league for comment on Davis not being listed on the injury report.

Bob Kravitz of WTHR reports that Davis is “very, very angry” about the situation with the team and that he asked the impending free agent about his future with the Colts.

“Change is good,” Davis said.

Pagano said that he expects Davis in the lineup against the Steelers this week and Davis will practice on a limited basis, but indicated that he won’t play again until he feels he’s healthy.

  1. Que for haters

    Davis was demoted for poor play and subsequently played the injury card. Davis never missed any practice time related to the alleged injury and suddenly when he’s demoted claims he’s injured.

    Move on haters.

  2. Sounds like an opportunity for Goodell to butt in. Coach says’s coaches decision, player says injured even though not on injury report (sort of like Andrew Luck). The timing could not be better, the Elliot thing is about to be finalized and Roger undoubtedly wants to continue in his “enforcer” role. Unfortunately, I only see this one lasting 6 to 9 months, year at best but maybe in the interim something else will come up that Roger can latch on to.

    We all know that from Goodell’s perspective, there is no such thing as bad publicity.
