The Colts played their best defense in a month yesterday, and now they’re immediately going to have to replace a member of that group.
According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Colts defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois will miss the next two to four weeks with a foot sprain. Jean-Francois was part of their aggressive free agent haul in March, and has been a solid addition. Without him, their depth will be tested, though his time frame should allow him back for the playoffs after the team effectively sealed the AFC South title Sunday.
The Colts also lost running back Dan Herron to a torn pectoral muscle, which will send him to injured reserve.
