Ian Rapoport, citing a source, confirms that Colts CB Vontae Davis is opting to undergo season-ending surgery after seeking a second medical opinion. Stephen Holder of the Indy Star reports that Colts CB Vontae Davis will likely have season-ending surgery after seeking additional medical opinions regarding his lingering groin injury. Colts HC Chuck Pagano decided to bench Davis for Week 9 for what he called a coaches decision and adding that the cornerback “hasn’t played very well.” However, Davis told reporters that he felt “disrespected” by Pagano’s decision to bench him for last week’s game. “I’ve been here six years,” Davis said, via Holder. “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.” Pagano insisted that it was a coaching decision, despite reports that came out that Davis was still dealing with a groin injury.
