INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts coach Chuck Pagano says starting defensive lineman Art Jones is getting a second opinion on his injured left ankle.
Jones was injured on the first defensive series Saturday night at St. Louis and left the locker room in a walking boot. Pagano said Monday that the team was still waiting for additional information.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound tackle was Indy’s prized free agent signing in 2014. But a right ankle injury cost Jones seven games and he wound up with only 15 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks last season.
Pagano also named Khaled Holmes the starting center. Holmes and second-year player Jonotthan Harrison were battling for the job.
