Colts officially end Austin Collie's season

In a move that most anticipated, the Indianapolis Colts have placed wide receiver Austin Collie on Injured Reserve. Collie suffered his third concussion of the season this past Sunday against the Jaguars. It was the second time this season that the slot receiver was knocked out after going low for a ball down the seam between double coverage (the first time was in Philadelphia, where Collie was carted off the field).

This is a blow to Indy’s injury-ravaged offense, though the Colts have grown accustom to playing without Collie (they’re 3-2 when he’s out of the lineup).

Undrafted rookie Blair White will once against step in. White may look like Collie, but he’s not as clever a route runner. That said, he’s been solid at times, catching 30 passes for 284 yards and four scores on the season.

Colts officially end Austin Collie's season

Unfortunately,the Colts had no choice but to shut him down.Great competitor when playing for BYU that carried on to his young NFL career,this is just a safe way to prolong his career.Smart move by the Colts.
