On Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, cornerback Vontae Davis will not be on the field for a second-consecutive week.
Davis didn’t even travel with the Colts for their Week 9 matchup against the Houston Texans. He is going to miss the game against the Steelers with a groin injury that he can’t seem to shake, according to CBS 4’s Mike Chappell.
In the Colts’ announcement that Davis would not be traveling to Houston last week, they specifically said that the absence was not injury related. However, reports came out that Davis’ groin injury still had not healed. That injury caused him to miss the first three games of this season.
Pierre Dessir will be starting at cornerback for a second-consecutive week, and Davis is upset because he feels that he is no longer a starter because of his injury.
“It’s a disagreement because I feel like I was demoted because of my health,” Davis said, via the Indianapolis Star’s Clark Wade.

NFL teams are required to give accurate injury information, and it is looking more and more like the Colts’ Week 9 announcement was quite inaccurate.
