Colts Cut Vontae Davis Before He Can Have Season-Ending Surgery

Colts Cut Vontae Davis Before He Can Have Season-Ending Surgery

Instead, Davis says defensive coordinator Ted Monachino and defensive backs coach Greg Williams broke the news. "I'm a professional", Davis said.

Pagano and Davis did eventually talk late last week, with the cornerback expressing his displeasure in how things were handled.

On Wednesday, Davis predicted the end was coming after six seasons with the Colts. He missed Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, with Davis and the team giving different stories about what happened.

Cornerback Vontae Davis needs season-ending surgery on a lingering groin injury, reports the Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder.

And despite Davis going to two Pro Bowls as a member of the team and was the Colts' best cornerback for several years, their tweet announcing the move was as cut-and-dried as you can get: "We have released CB Vontae Davis", was all it said.

Not to mention, the disgruntled Davis would still have access to the team's training and rehabilitation facilities, which could be a distraction-assuming that he doesn't actually want to be in Indianapolis past this season.

With Colts trainers and doctors apparently not signing off on Davis's claim that his injury is affecting his play, he went to see his own doctors this week.

"It should be more about the respect".

His coverage in the 2014 AFC Divisional Game against the Denver Broncos was nothing short of dominant. He's a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

Davis also took issue with being left behind before the team traveled to Houston, saying he felt "disrespected" by the decision.

In 120 career games (112 starts), Davis racked up 399 tackles, 97 passes defended, 22 interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

When asked on Wednesday about his 2018 uncertainty, the pending free agent left a powerful lasting impression.

However, 4th-year cornerback Pierre Desir figures to start alongside fellow starter Rashaan Melvin for at least the time being-until at least Wilson can force the issue competitively.

His return, which Davis now admits was probably a bit rushed by himself, came on October 1 (Week Four in Seattle).
