The Indianapolis Colts have released cornerback Vontae Davis, it was announced Thursday. The move capped off a bizarre six days between the Colts and Davis, who was scheduled to be a free agent after the season. A source had confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday night that Davis, after seeking second medical opinions, made the choice to undergo season-ending groin surgery. The recommendation that Davis undergo surgery was first reported by the Indianapolis Star. Earlier Wednesday, Davis said he felt disrespected by how the Colts handled his being 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 the 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.
