Darrius Heyward-Bey Injury: Updates on Colts WR’s Ankle, Likely Return Date

Posted By Joseph Zucker On November 15, 2013 @ 2:35 am In Colts News | No Comments

Darrius Heyward-Bey hurt his ankle on Thursday night in the Indianapolis Colts [1]‘ 30-27 win against the Tennessee Titans [2].

Rather than anything resulting from his performance in the first half, that’s why the 26-year-able was unable to play in the second.

Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star had the report.

NFL [4]: Around the League reported LaVon Brazill replaced Heyward-Bey on any two-receiver sets.

Prior to exiting the game, the five-year veteran had one reception for 10 yards. However, he was making more news for the passes he dropped than the one he caught.

Heyward-Bey had three dropped passes prior to the game, which represented 6.4 percent of the passes coming his way, according to Sporting Charts [6]. It’s a problem that plagued him while he was a member of the Oakland Raiders [7] as well.

Now the ankle gives Heyward-Bey one more thing to worry about.

Drops aside, losing another wideout could also spell trouble for the Colts. He’s fourth on the team in receiving yards, and every receiver has had to shoulder more of the load after the injury [8] to Reggie Wayne. Indianapolis will want to get the wideout back as soon as possible.
