Colts Injury Report: Vontae Davis and Chester Rogers Ruled Out
The injury report continues to pile up for the Colts as cornerback Vontae Davis and wide receiver Chester Rogers have officially been ruled out for Week 1’s trip to Los Angeles.
The first game-week of the regular season began with Andrew Luck finally being ruled out for the Colts’ season opener against the Rams with Scott Tolzien being named the starter in his stead.
Now, after suffering a re-aggravation of his nagging groin injury from last season, the Colts’ second-best player will also miss Sunday’s matchup with the Rams as Vontae Davis will join Andrew Luck on the sidelines.
The Colts’ group of cornerbacks was already a major concern this preseason as no one really stepped up as the number two corner opposite of Davis. Now one of those young cornerbacks will have to matchup with Sammy Watkins, who is one of the NFL’s most talented receivers when he is healthy.
The injury bug also caught up with Chester Rogers this week as he will be out for this week’s game against the Rams.

Rogers was reportedly set to return to practice on Wednesday in preparation for their trip to Las Angeles, but he suffered a setback with a hamstring injury and he has now officially been ruled out for Week 1.
Rogers surprisingly took the third spot on the Colts’ wide receiver depth chart this preseason, but he’s been out with a hamstring injury for the last couple of weeks and has not healed up in time for him to make the trip to L.A.
