Coach Chuck Pagano told reporters Friday that Vontae Davis has been ruled out for Sunday's game with the Browns after missing his third straight practice on Friday with the concussion he suffered last week against the Redskins.
Defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said Thursday that he believed Davis would play, but without him the Colts will lean on Darius Butler across from Greg Toler.
It's a boost for Brian Hoyer and the Browns, who will look to unleash wideout Josh Gordon in a must-win game for Cleveland. Stopping Andrew Luck and Indy's high-octane passing game is another story.
As the article notes, this is a boost for Brian Hoyer and (more importantly) Josh Gordon. Owners should start Gordon with extreme prejudice.
