Colts defensive end Kemoko Turay is done for the season, Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter) hear. Turay’s broken ankle suffered against the Chiefs on Sunday night will land him on injured reserve, allowing the Colts to replace him on the roster.
The severity of the injury was immediately apparent to everyone on the scene and watching at home after he was carted off the field. Turay, 24, will now focus on recovery and building on an impressive 2018 rookie season in which he notched four sacks as a part-timer.
The Colts, meanwhile, will move forward with starters Jabaal Sheard and Justin Houston, plus backup DEs Al-Quadin Muhammad and Ben Banogu. It’s possible that they will also add another edge rusher to the mix during their Week 6 bye.
The Colts will resume action on Oct. 20 against the Texans, without Turay.
