INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Colts have taken a hit in the linebacker department.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said second-year linebacker Justin Hickman will need foot surgery and that will likely cost him the season. Hickman suffered the injury in Sunday's preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Pagano said cornerback Cassius Vaughn is day-to-day after the MRI and X-rays done on his wrist came back negative. Defensive lineman Montori Hughes is also day-to-day with a stinger. Linebacker Quinton Spears will be out about a week with a hamstring injury.
