The season of injuries for the Indianapolis Colts continues, as NFL.com is reporting today that starting CB Marlin Jackson is going to miss the rest of the season after suffering a season-ending injury in Wednesday’s practice. Jackson tore both his ACL and meniscus cartilage in his knee that will force him to have at least one, possibly two surgeries.
He has started seven games this season for the Colts, and has made 41 tackles. The team could get Bob Sanders back this week, but losing Jackson will be a big blow to the secondary. It was two seasons ago that Jackson made the clinching pick in the AFC Title game when the Colts rallied to top the Pats, the team they will play Sunday night on Sunday Night Football.
