Davis (groin) will remain out for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

The absence of Davis has left gaping holes in the Colts' defense. Rookie Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston filled in against the Rams in Week 1 and got lit up 306 passing yards. This is likely to be further exposed against the Cardinals. A quick recovery would be ideal for Indy, but the week-to-week label is still stuck on Davis, so don't be surprised if this extends past Week 2.

Davis (groin) is considered week-to-week, Mike Chappell of of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts' defense missed Davis sorely in Sunday's loss to the Rams, as Jared Goff had a career day completing 21 of 29 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown. The veteran corner is still only about two weeks removed from what was labeled a "significant" groin injury, so it wouldn't be surprising if he has a couple more weeks of recovery before returning to action.

EDGE Analysis

Davis' injury remains a massive blow to the Colts' secondary. It is unclear who will be asked to replace Davis while he is sidelined, but second-round rookie Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston remain the most likely candidates. Do not expect the Colts to rush the veteran back too quickly in order to avoid a lingering issue throughout the season.

Head coach Chuck Pagano said Davis is week-to-week with a "significant" groin injury, Mike Wells of ESPN reports

EDGE Analysis

If there's one player in the Colts secondary they can't afford to lose, it's Davis. Any sort of extended absence would make the team's current group of corners a liability and simultaneously place a lot of pressure on second-round rookie Quincy Wilson, who could be asked to step into the starting lineup if Davis isn't ready in time for Week 1.

Davis (groin) will not return to Saturday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

This could be a lingering effect of the groin injury that pestered Davis throughout the final five weeks of 2016. If that is the case, it's not far off to assume that this injury could persist into the regular season. However, Davis played through it often last season, and whether he can do that again likely depends on the severity this time.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano says he's optimistic about Davis' (groin) chances of playing in Week 13 against the Jets, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis injured his groin during the Colts' loss to the Steelers last Thursday, when he entered the contest with already carrying an ankle injury. Although that incident added to Davis' ailments, the time off prior to next Monday's subsequent contest provides coach Pagano with a favorable outlook regarding the cornerback's Week 13 availability. While that seemingly bodes well for Indianapolis' secondary, Davis' practice involvement over the course of this week should be most telling.
