Colts LCB Greg Toler (neck) is practicing in full for Week 5.
Toler missed the first four games of the season after injuring his neck on August 22. Opposing offense's No. 2 receivers -- the ones not lined up opposite Vontae Davis -- have been shredding the Colts for big-time stats the first month. Toler's return should help, but he's going to be targeted heavily opposite Davis. Oct 5 - 7:16 PM

Colts LCB Greg Toler (neck) is out for Week 3 against the Titans.

He's been out since suffering a neck injury in the Colts' second preseason game. Toler has been wearing a non-contact jersey at practice. Jalil Brown will get another start at left corner.

Colts LCB Greg Toler (neck) remains week to week.

However, coach Chuck Pagano believes Toler could get in some practice reps this week. He's highly unlikely to play Sunday, but it can't be completely ruled out. Toler's status has taken on extra importance with RCB Vontae Davis battling a concussion.

Colts LCB Greg Toler remains week to week with a neck injury.

He hasn't been cleared for contact yet. There's little chance of Toler playing Monday against the Jets. Toler's replacement, Darius Butler, struggled mightily in last week's loss to Buffalo, finishing with PFF's sixth-worst coverage grade out of 97 qualified cornerbacks.

Colts LCB Greg Toler (neck) has been ruled out for Week 1.

The Colts will turn to slot CB Darius Butler to start opposite Vontae Davis.
Sep 11 - 1:40 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano reiterated Monday that LCB Greg Toler (neck) is "week to week."

Pagano called Toler "week to week" on August 27, as well, so reiterating that stance on Monday isn't a good sign for Toler's Week 1 availability. If Toler can't play against the Bills, look for usual RCB Vontae Davis to work in shadow coverage versus Sammy Watkins. Even before Toler's injury, the Colts had spoken openly of allowing Davis to follow No. 1 wide receivers this year.
Sep 7 - 1:24 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said CB Greg Toler is week to week with a neck injury.

Toler suffered the injury in the second preseason game. He was originally considered day to day, but he was downgraded after consulting with a doctor. Downgrades are never a good thing, and there is a chance Toler misses some regular season action.
Aug 27 - 1:07 PM

Colts LCB Greg Toler (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12.

It's an upgrade for Cecil Shorts' matchup. Toler will be replaced by Josh Gordy, who's been flamed by opposing passing games in past spot starts.

Colts LCB Greg Toler is in the league's concussion protocol.

Toler missed four snaps last Sunday night and returned to the Colts facility with a headache Monday. His status for Week 12 against the Jaguars is now in question.

Coach Chuck Pagano said LCB Greg Toler has been "spectacular" so far at camp.

"He's having as good a camp as anybody," Pagano said. Now healthy after an injury-plagued first season in Indy, Toler will be put to the test early and often as he's locked in opposite Vontae Davis. Matchup-savvy fantasy owners will be watching Toler's effectiveness closely. He was a guy to pick on last year.

Colts LCB Greg Toler (groin) is participating in OTAs.

Toler had offseason sports-hernia surgery and sat out voluntary workouts earlier this month. The 29-year-old appeared in just nine games last season and struggled in coverage and run support. The Colts didn't bring in any cornerback competition, so they're banking on Toler bouncing back opposite Vontae Davis. Toler is going to be heavily targeted by opposing quarterbacks.

Colts LCB Greg Toler (groin) is sitting out voluntary workouts this week.

Toler had offseason sports-hernia surgery. He says he's fully healthy, but the training staff wants him to slow his roll and get back to running at 100 percent before putting him back on the field. Toler was a disappointment as a free-agent signing for the Colts, appearing in only nine games in 2013, but he has plenty of natural ability and length to serve as Indy's No. 2 corner opposite Vontae Davis.

Colts LCB Greg Toler will need surgery on his groin.

The procedure to repair Toler's groin tear will come with a four-week rehab timetable. Therefore, he expects to be ready to participate in the offseason program. The Colts will be hoping to re-sign free agent Vontae Davis, leaving Toler in his more natural No. 2 corner role.

Colts placed LCB Greg Toler on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

Toler essentially missed the Colts' final nine games of the season, returning from a seven-game absence to combine for only 26 snaps in Weeks 16-17. He returned to the starting lineup for Saturday's Wild Card win only to get absolutely roasted by Alex Smith before leaving the game with injury. The Colts will go with Vontae Davis, Darius Butler and Josh Gordy as their top three corners as they attempt to slow down Tom Brady on Saturday. Signed through 2015, Toler should be ready for OTAs.

Colts LCB Greg Toler was forced from Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs with a groin injury, and is doubtful to return.

Toler missed seven games with a groin injury before returning to play limited snaps in Weeks 16 and 17. He was removed after getting barbecued on a 79-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery. He was also victimized on a 63-yard pass to Dwayne Bowe. The Colts are down to Darius Butler and Josh Gordy behind Vontae Davis, who appears to be playing at well less than 100 percent.
