Cornerback Vontae Davis said he felt disrespected by how the Colts handled how he was left behind for last weekend's game at Houston. The Colts sent out a surprising announcement Saturday saying that Davis would not make the trip for their game against the Texans the next day. The email said Davis' situation was "non-injury related." Coach Chuck Pagano repeated several times after the game that leaving Davis behind was a coach's decision. Davis had a different version of events. 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. "I had a groin tear that I dealt with," Davis said. "I got different opinions on it. One doctor said I should have had surgery, other doctor told me to let it heal. I took the let-it-heal approach. I came back and probably came back a little too early and in the process I probably hurt my teammates." When asked why Pagano said it was a non-injury situation, Davis, "I can't really control what Coach P said." Davis made his comments inside the locker room after Pagano had already addressed the media Wednesday.
