During the Indianapolis Colts loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, cornerback Josh Gordy went down with an injury. While Gordy will now have the entire offseason to recover from his injury, it is clear that he would have been unavailable for the Colts if they were able to advance.
According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Gordy suffered a dislocated collarbone.
The good news is that the injury will not require surgery.
Inconsequential now, but heard CB Josh Gordy dislocated his collarbone vs Patriots. Won’t need surgery, requires 4-6 weeks recovery. #Colts

The bad news for Gordy is that he is set to become a free agent in the offseason, so the recovery from his injury could hurt his chances of getting a bigger payday.
Gordy rose up the Colts depth chart throughout 2013, reaching as high as No. 3, but he saw very limited action throughout the season.
It will be interesting to see what kind of action Gordy can generate on the open market.
