The Colts have ruled out LB Matthew Adams & CB Rock Ya-Sin for Sundays Week 3 contest against the New York Jets –

» Adams suffered an ankle injury on a Nyheim Hines punt return play in the second quarter of last Sunday’s Week 2 victory over the Minnesota Vikings and did not return. Head coach Frank Reich confirmed this week that Adams is “probably going to miss a couple weeks” of action. The third-year Houston product is a key piece of depth at linebacker for the Colts, as well as a major special teams contributor. Others at the linebacker position who could see added opportunities are Zaire Franklin, Jordan Glasgow and E.J. Speed.

» Ya-Sin was a last-minute addition to the Colts’ inactives list just before kickoff last Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, and was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated for what was initially being described as a stomach illness. Reich earlier this week said Ya-Sin was eventually diagnosed with a “non-football-related illness,” and he has missed practice the entire week; the third-year head coach today confirmed Ya-Sin had a “procedure” done, but didn’t have any additional details. With Ya-Sin out for a second straight game, look for Xavier Rhodes, T.J. Carrie, Isaiah Rodgers and Tremon Smith, who was just elevated to the active roster from the practice squad earlier this week, to fill the void at the cornerback position opposite starter Kenny Moore II Sunday against the Jets.
