Geathers Breaks Bone in Foot
Indianapolis Colts’ safety, Clayton Geathers, recently broke a bone in his foot and was placed on the non-football injury list. Geathers is expected to miss most, if not all of the preseason. Rookie T.J. Green is scheduled to fill Geather’s spot until he fully recovers. This could be an opportunity for Green to earn an important role on the team.
