According to the Indinapolis Star, Colts linebacker Robert Mathis – the team’s sack leader (five) -- will miss two or three games, according to a source.

Marthis sprained his left knee in the fourth quarter of Indy’s Sunday win over Green Bay and did not return. He went to Atlanta for a second opinion, but was told the injury will force him out of competition – starting with Sunday’s Jets game.

The Colts announced Wednesday that  running back Donald Brown will miss two or three games after undergoing surgery Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his knee.
