Davis will now hit the waiver wire, which means he can be claimed by a team but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Davis is still undergoing surgery, which means his season is over, regardless.

That end came the next morning, when the Colts chose to release the nine-year veteran.

Davis first suffered a groin tear on August 26, during the Colts' third preseason game. One doctor said I should have had surgery, other doctor told me to let it heal.

Colts cornerback Vontae Davis isn't thrilled with how things are going, either. It's disappointing too because Davis was one of the Colts 'stars of training camp' this offseason and was apparently in great shape before re-aggravating his groin injury, which diminished his effectiveness on the field.

Nintendo Looking To Majorly Increase Nintendo Switch Production Next Year
Demand for Nintendo Switch remains high, but supply shortages have proven to be a problem since launch. A new report reveals that Nintendo is planning a significant increase in Switch production for 2018.

"Knowing Chuck I figured it would have come from him", Davis, who has started all 76 games he's played with the Colts, said on Wednesday afternoon. He missed the first three games of the season before returning against Seattle. "I got different opinions on it".

"You want to know why".

At one point, he had gone more than 1,300 snaps without allowing a touchdown in coverage, which is pretty remarkable to say the least. He said he felt the demotion was due to his health and not his ability. But the Colts and Pagano did not mention the persistent groin injury, when first announcing the news over the weekend or in recent follow-ups.

Something that could be considered a bit of a "slap in the face" to Davis given his strong history and rapport with Pagano previously, who helped him develop into an elite cornerback.

Russian Federation to amend law to classify USA media 'foreign agents'
The Russian law on foreign agents in recent years has been used on nongovernmental groups that do not toe the Kremlin party line. RT's editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan, said Thursday that the broadcaster has no choice but to comply with the U.S.

Like most injured players left home from a road game, Davis rehabbed over the weekend in an effort to play again this season. "I'm a professional", Davis said.

Davis has been with Indianapolis for Pagano's entire tenure with the club, and felt they were close; Pagano even traveled to Davis' wedding in Puerto Rico two years ago.

"I've been here six years, I've played hurt, we've had similar situations where these things happen and I never got confronted that [my] play slipped or none of those things", Davis said.

And that change came on Thursday.
