Colts coach Chuck Pagano hinted he is open to using Vontae Davis to shadow opposing No. 1 receivers this season.
Davis has strictly played RCB through two years in Pagano's defense, emerging as arguably a top-three NFL corner behind Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis. "We’ve got to be able to do whatever we want to do with him," Pagano said. "If that means putting him on somebody’s best wide receiver instead of just playing one side of the (field), then maybe that’s the next progression. We’ll see." This is something to keep in mind for DFS purposes. Aug 4 - 8:24 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder said both Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) and LCB Greg Toler (groin) will play in the AFC Championship Game.

"No ifs, ands or buts," Holder said, adding both were limited in Friday's practice "out of caution." Despite being listed as questionable, there was never any doubt both Toler and Davis would suit up against the Patriots.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) is officially questionable for the AFC Championship Game, but fully expected to play.

Davis said his missed practice reps were just for rest purposes. His presence is a must for a team tasked with slowing down Tom Brady.
Jan 16 - 1:20 PM

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Coach Chuck Pagano believes Davis is in no danger of missing the conference championship against the Patriots. Davis graded as PFF's No. 2 corner this year, allowing a league-low QB rating of 38.8 when passes were thrown his direction.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) missed practice on Wednesday.

LCB Greg Toler (groin) was also held out. Coach Chuck Pagano did not seem troubled by either injury, saying, "They both hopefully will be back on the practice field tomorrow." Davis has been lights out this season. The Colts cannot afford to be without his services against the Patriots.
Jan 14 - 8:40 PM

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Davis' return removes some of the shine from DeAndre Hopkins' matchup, although Davis only plays on one side of the field, and Hopkins will get chances against the Colts' lesser corners. Davis has been a top-five NFL corner this year.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Browns.

Josh Gordon is licking his chops. Darius Butler and Josh Gordy will be forced into heavier snaps opposite LCB Greg Toler. All three cornerbacks are easily burnable. Gordon runs routes all over the formation as the Browns' X receiver, so he'll see some of all three. He's a locked-in, must-start with WR1 overall upside.

Colts DC Greg Manusky believes RCB Vontae Davis (concussion) will play Week 14 against the Browns.

Davis has yet to practice this week, and still needs to pass through the concussion protocol. Predicting a player clearing the league's strict protocol is like trying to predict the weather. Davis needs to be cleared by sometime Saturday. If he can't go, Darius Butler would start in his place opposite LCB Greg Toler. If it's Butler, Toler, and Josh Gordy at corner for the Colts, Josh Gordon will be licking his chops. They're three of the worst corners in the league this season.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Davis remains in the league's concussion protocol after going down in Week 13. If he can't play against the Browns, Josh Gordon's matchup becomes exponentially better. Davis has been the only one playing even average football in the Colts' secondary. Gordon could flirt with WR1 overall numbers for Week 14.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 12:29:00 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano confirmed Vontae Davis is in the concussion protocol.

Davis suffered the brain injury during Sunday's win over the Redskins and was replaced by liability Josh Gordy. If Davis can't go in Week 14, Johnny Manziel and Josh Gordon will be licking their chops.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis exited Week 13 against the Redskins with a concussion.

He is out for the game. Davis hurt himself attempting to tackle Roy Helu Jr. in the third quarter. He walked off the field under his own power but was quickly escorted into the locker room. Josh Gordy replaced Davis in the lineup and promptly gave up a 42-yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) is officially probable for Week 9.

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (knee) is practicing in full for Week 9.

"He's ready to go," were the words of coach Chuck Pagano on Thursday. It's a major bullet dodged for the Colts, who came absolutely unglued against the pass after Davis was forced from last week's loss to the Steelers. Davis has been one of the league's very best corners this season.

Davis went down early in the Week 8 loss to the Steelers and didn't return. But after an MRI came back clean, Davis is on track to suit up in Monday night's game against the Giants. He's PFF's No. 3 corner in terms of coverage this season, behind only Chris Harris and Brandon Flowers.
