INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts have taken a hit in the strongest area of their defense last season.

Cornerback Greg Toler has gone from being day-to-day with a neck injury to week-to-week. He suffered the injury in last Saturday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

The Colts were at their best in the secondary last season when Toler and Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis were on the field together.

“As you go through and the doctors evaluate, that’s where he’s at right now,” coach Chuck Pagano said.

Being listed “week to week” should cause concern because the Colts open the regular season on Sept. 13 at Buffalo.

As far as other injuries are concerned, Pagano said they hope to have tight end Coby Fleener (knee) back next week. Rookie receiver Phillip Dorsett (knee) is day-to-day and guard Hugh Thornton (knee) is still week-to-week.
