The Indianapolis Colts will be down a cornerback on Sunday, as Rock Ya-Sin will be out due to an illness. After reports of a 'mystery player' being held out due to a fever, it has been confirmed that Ya-Sin is not said player -- his illness is due to a stomach issue.
This sounds more serious than it probably is, but as long as it isn't COVID-related, that's good news. The NFL had all coaches and players test negative before Week Two began, but it's assuring that they are still being cautious.
Losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars was bad, but it gets worse for the Indianapolis Colts. Starting running back Marlon Mack left Sunday's game with a leg injury, and an MRI confirmed on Monday that he tore his Achilles.
Tough break for Mack, who is in the final year of his contract.
It hasn't been said exactly what they will be doing yet, but the Indianapolis Colts plan to make a 'bold statement' during the national anthem prior to Week One's game.
Whether it's the team all kneeling together, or staying inside the locker room (as it's rumored some teams are planning on doing), all we can be assured of is there for sure will not be any complaining, considering all of those people had plans to boycott for months and won't be watching anyway. Right?
Tight end Trey Burton won't be starting 2020 on the field with the Indianapolis Colts right away. Head coach Frank Reich said the team expects Burton to miss at least the first two weeks with a calf injury.
This isn't a huge deal, as the Colts have plenty of depth at tight end.
