Colts rookie offensive lineman Javon Patterson suffered a torn ACL, according to head coach Frank Reich. The seventh-round pick will miss his rookie season and the team will place him on injured reserve.
Patterson, an Ole Miss product, spent most of his time at guard in college, but was projected to play at center in the NFL due to his overall lack of length and strength. The Colts were happy to scoop him up with one of the final picks in the 2019 draft, but they’ll have to wait until 2020 to see what he can do.
