Indianapolis Colts Unexpectedly Suspend 2 Players For The Rest Of The Season

Wagswoofs –  Isaiah McKenzie, the wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts, and Tony Brown, the cornerback, unexpectedly did not play in last week’s match against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Colts have made a recent announcement regarding the suspension of both veterans for the remainder of the season. According to the team, this decision was made due to their conduct being deemed detrimental to the overall well-being of the team.

The reason behind the inactivity and subsequent suspension of the two players on the Colts team, McKenzie and Brown, remains unknown. However, despite their absence, Indianapolis managed to secure a convincing victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, propelling them to a three-way tie for the lead in the AFC South with a record of 8-6.

Shane Steichen, the first-year head coach, is making his mark on the team with these suspensions.

Heading into Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons, there could be a significant on-field impact. This impact is particularly evident when considering the special teams and depth aspects of the game.

Isaiah McKenzie has only managed to secure 11 receptions for 82 yards so far this season. However, it is important to note that he has been a key player for the Colts as their primary punt and kick returner. It is expected that rookie Josh Downs will step up to fill these roles in McKenzie’s absence.

Brown made a strong start to the season by intercepting Trevor Lawrence in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he has been limited to playing only on special teams since Week 8, not getting any opportunities on defense.
