It was confirmed Monday that Davis (groin) is expected be sidelined at least a few weeks, Colts' beat writer Zak Keefer reports

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.

Davis is questionable to return to the Colts' Thanksgiving matchup against the Steelers due to a groin injury, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis was considered questionable heading into the contest with an ankle injury, but was ultimately ruled active. He then apparently injured his groin early the game. Davis had already been beaten for two touchdowns by Steelers' star receiver Antonio Brown before exiting. His nagging injuries likely played a factor in his lackluster performance.

Davis (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Steelers, owner Jim Irsay reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given that Davis did not practice Monday or Tuesday, many speculated that the 28-year-old would be unable to play Thursday, but the veteran corner was able to show enough at practice Wednesday to return to the field in time for the prime-time matchup. Against a pass-happy Steelers' offense, Davis could see a fair share of tackle opportunities in the Thanksgiving contest.

Davis was unable to practice Monday and Tuesday, but returned to participation in limited fashion on Wednesday leaving hope he'll be good to go for Week 12. Darius Butler and Rashaan Melvin could see increased roles at cornerback if Davis is sidelined.
