Short-handed Colts leave 4 players behind for Tennessee trip

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Colts left home four injured players when they traveled to Tennessee on Saturday.

Tight end Dwayne Allen (left ankle), cornerbacks Greg Toler (neck) and Darius Butler (hip) and linebacker Trent Cole (knee) will not play in Sunday's critical AFC South matchup.

Indy (0-2) has won 13 consecutive division games but is trying to avoid its first 0-3 start since 2011.

The Colts are perilously thin in the secondary without Toler and Butler.

Vontae Davis left Monday night's game with a concussion but has been cleared to play. Jalil Brown and Sheldon Price filled in after Davis was hurt. Price was waived-injured earlier this week, which forced the Colts to put Eric Patterson back on the active roster Friday.
