Indianapolis Colts shockingly suspend 2 players for the remainder of the season

The Indianapolis Colts stun by suspending 2 players for the rest of the season

Surprisingly, the Indianapolis Colts had to do without wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie and cornerback Tony Brown in their recent game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Colts made an announcement on Tuesday, revealing the reason behind the suspension of both veterans for the rest of the season. They cited “conduct detrimental to the team” as the cause.

The circumstances surrounding the inactivity and subsequent suspension of the two players on the Colts roster remain unclear. However, their absence didn’t hinder the team’s performance, as Indianapolis convincingly defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers and solidified their position in the AFC South with an 8-6 record, joining two other teams in the tie for the top spot.

The recent suspensions serve as strong evidence that new head coach Shane Steichen is determined to make his mark on the team.

Heading into Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons, there could be a significant on-field impact. This impact is especially notable in terms of special teams and depth.

Isaiah McKenzie has only recorded 11 receptions for 82 yards this season. However, he continues to excel as the Colts’ top punt and kick returner. It is expected that rookie Josh Downs will assume those responsibilities in his absence.

Brown made an impressive start to the season by intercepting Trevor Lawrence in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he has been limited to special teams duty since Week 8 and hasn’t played on defense.
