Darrius Heyward-Bey has encountered a road block in his quest for a starting job with the Indianapolis Colts.
The veteran wide receiver, signed by the Colts in April, limped off the practice field Sunday with a sprained knee, according to The Indianapolis Star.
Heyward-Bey's recovery timetable is unclear, though it's fair to wonder about the former first-round pick's availability for the Colts' preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills next Sunday.
Heyward-Bey is hoping to hold off T.Y. Hilton as the Colts' starting receiver opposite Reggie Wayne.
Hilton was getting high praise from HC Chuck Pagano just very recently despite the fact DHB was running with the first team.
