INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Austin Collie was back in action Sunday against the Jaguars just long enough to get hurt again.
In the third quarter, the veteran receiver went down with a right knee injury after catching his first pass in NFL action in over a month.
“For the first couple seconds, I thought it was his head again,” said quarterback Andrew Luck. “He’s had some bad luck. He’s due for a break.”
The team doesn’t know how serious Collie’s injury is, but he was carted off the field after the hit. He’ll undergo an MRI early this week.
“It’s a terrible thing to fight through what he’s fought through and then to have something like this happen, it’s a devastating loss,” said Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.
“It’s tough whenever you see any of your brothers go on,” added receiver Reggie Wayne. “I just hope he can bounce back as soon as possible.”
But will this latest injury be the final straw for Collie? He dismissed talks of retirement following his last concussion against Pittsburgh, saying he wanted to play football as long as the Colts would have him. Depending on the severity of this knee injury, however, he may have to reconsider.
