Colts cornerback Vontae Davis said on Wednesday that he felt “disrespected” by the Colts’ decision to characterize their call to leave him off the roster for last Sunday’s game as not being injury related because he’s still bothered by the groin injury that kept him from playing early in the season.

“I’ve been here six years,” Davis said, via the Indianapolis Star. “We’ve had similar situations where I played hurt. These things happen. And I never got confronted and (no one) said, ‘Your play has slipped.’ Nothing. I was playing at a level that was acceptable. But now, my play slips and this? They should have come to me way earlier and said, ‘Vontae, you’re not yourself. You’re not playing well.’ I told the trainers my groin was not responding.”

Davis has not been appearing on the injury report, but was back on it Wednesday as a limited participant due to his groin injury.
