Colts starting center Khaled Jones limps off field in opening drive against Jets

The Indianapolis Colts began their preseason against the New York Jets on Thursday night, and they had quite the injury scare during their first offensive drive of the contest.

After a run by Trent Richardson, starting center Khaled Jones limped off the field with what appeared to be and ankle injury. Upon making it to the sidelines, he was replaced by undrafted free agent Jonotthan Harris out of Florida.

The team announced shortly after that Jones was questionable to return to the game at this point.

That first drive for the Colts was a rather successful one as Andrew Luck and company gashed that vaunted Jets defense, although they were ultimately only able to get an Adam Vinatieri field goal out of it.

But still, the injury to Jones is concerning, only for the fact that they already have health issues along their front line on offense with guard Donald Thomas out for the season after he suffered a torn quad muscle.

So that questionable diagnosis by the Colts may as well mean out, because there probably isn’t a chance that they’re going to risk any more injuries in the first preseason game, especially with someone from a unit they’re already concerned with.
