Indianapolis Colts: Vontae Davis cut continues Chris Ballard's plan

Indianapolis Colts: Vontae Davis cut continues Chris Ballard's plan

This ends a roughly two-week saga of drama between the former Pro Bowler and the Colts. The official reason listed by the team was "non-injury related".

Davis did not travel with the team for last Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, which head coach Chuck Pagano tabbed as a "coach's decision" rather than an injury concern. Chris Ballard then told the media that Davis was not playing at a high level, and the Colts' organization did not believe he was injured.

Coach Chuck Pagano has said only that Davis stayed home last weekend because of a coach's decision.

If you thought the week of reports regarding Vontae Davis happened to be weird, it just got much stranger, as the Indianapolis Colts have announced that the defensive back has been released from the team. However, Davis did not take to the news very well, and he's alleged that he was told by Colts defensive coordinator Ted Monachino and defensive backs coach Greg Williams-not even Pagano himself.

Most recently, the Colts are dealing with a minor controversy over the handling of cornerback Vontae Davis, who as we've already relayed yesterday has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, much to the joy of those who own Antonio Brown in fantasy football. It was also revealed this week that Davis had been demoted from his starting position. "I'm a professional. I've been in (the league) long enough". "Knowing Chuck, I figured it would come from him. I just feel in this situation, there was no respect whatsoever".

PSA's plan for Opel has a pretty name: PACE! All models will offer electric or plug-in hybrid versions by 2024. Vauxhall has set out its plans for future profitability, and electrification is high on the agenda.

Davis is in the final year of his contract, and any team that claims him would be on the hook for the little over $4.2 million he's due for the rest of the season.

Davis has 21 tackles (16 solo) in five games this season.

However, 4th-year cornerback Pierre Desir figures to start alongside fellow starter Rashaan Melvin for at least the time being-until at least Wilson can force the issue competitively.

Rookie Nate Hairston will likely get some more looks in the slot after a decent game last week against Houston.
