The Indianapolis Colts announced that wide receiver Austin Collie is out for the season with a torn right patella tendon in his knee.

Collie was making his first appearance of the season since suffering a concussion in a preseason game on Aug. 19 and lasted just three quarters, making one catch for six yards in the Colts 22-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Collie is in the final year of his contract, making $1.308 million. The team signed undrafted free agent Nathan Palmer from Northern Illinois to replace Collie in case the injury was serious. Collie, 26, is in his fourth season in the NFL and has lasted a full 16 game schedule only twice.
