Already, Austin Collie has missed five games this season with concussion symptoms, and in his return to the field today, he showed why the Colts had missed him so much during his absence.
Late in the second quarter, he had accumulated eight catches for 87 yards and two scores as the Colts took a 14-10 lead heading into intermission.
But as the Colts were driving late in the second quarter, Collie got crushed again, stayed down for a few minutes and then slowly walked to the locker room. At this point, there's got to be a question of whether Collie can - or should - return to play this season.
Running a vertical route and covered by Jacksonville’s William Middleton, Collie dove for a Peyton Manning pass but took a shot to the head by Jaguars LB Daryl Smith. It wasn’t a helmet-to-helmet hit and it wasn’t illegal, but it was still awfully scary for Collie.
He stayed on the turf several minutes before trainers helped him into the locker room. As he left the field, Middleton and Smith both patted him on the backside.
No word yet on his condition.
UPDATED (2:37 p.m.): Collie has suffered a concussion, and officials say his return is doubtful.
