Indianapolis Colts rookie WR Josh Downs is dealing with a "little bit of a knee issue," as reported by George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin. Head coach Shane Steichen says it isn't major. (George Bremer on Twitter)
Downs is reportedly walking on the sideline without any support and the injury isn't expected to be a worry for the regular season. Downs was drafted in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft after a productive season at North Carolina where he posted 1,029 yards and 11 TDs. When healthy, Downs can provide a middle-of-field option for rookie QB Anthony Richardson, complementing the skills of Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce.
