The announcement that Colts cornerback Vontae Davis didn’t make the trip to Houston for Sunday’s game against the Texans for reasons that are not injury-related seemed ominous. The truth isn’t. The implications are.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Davis believes he needs treatment and time off as a result of the groin injury that caused him to miss the first three games of the regular season. Which makes the absence definitely injury related.
