Vontae Davis is the latest victim of the Colts' bumbling

And now, just one week after proclaiming he loved Indianapolis and would be a Colts fan for life, Davis sounds like he won't be back.

"I had a groin tear that I dealt with", Davis said.

DENVER, CO - JANUARY 11: Vontae Davis #21 of the Indianapolis Colts catches a ball intended for Demaryius Thomas #88 of the Denver Broncos but is forced out of bounds during a 2014 AFC Divisional Playoff game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on January 11, 2015 in Denver, Colorado. On Wednesday, Davis told reporters his side of the story.

My guess is that the groin injury is hindering Davis' play in coverage to at least some degree, although in his 9th National Football League season, age could've caught up to the veteran cornerback a bit as well.

The veteran cornerback, who has made two Pro Bowls while in Indianapolis, was recently "demoted" from the starting lineup, the quotations marks providing the qualification that he has been injured. The email said Davis' situation was "non-injury related". He also was demoted during training camp in 2012 for not being in shape to keep up with his Miami teammates.

So far, England coach Gareth Southgate has only brought in Michael Keane and Jake Livermore as replacements. Dier told The Independent : "I don't really see it as a risk.

When asked why Pagano said it was a non-injury situation, Davis said, "I can't really control what Coach P said".

The Colts failed to trade Davis, a two-time Pro Bowler, prior to the trade deadline last week. Davis said he hasn't played well this season because he's still dealing with the groin injury he suffered against Pittsburgh in the third preseason game that caused him to miss the first three weeks of the regular season.

The 29-year-old Davis played in five games this season, recording 21 combined tackles with two passes defensed. "You want to know why and it should be more about respect".

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.

It is obviously worth noting, that if the reports that he needs season-ending groin surgery are true, that may make teams decide there's no reason to claim him.
