Indianapolis Colts starting cornerback Rashaan Melvin was ruled out for the rest of Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans after suffering a hand injury on an interception in the second quarter, and starting center Ryan Kelly also left the game with a concussion.
Melvin, who has been the Colts’ best cornerback this season, injured his right hand when he dove to the ground and intercepted a pass intended for Titans receiver Harry Douglas. Melvin, who is tied for the team high in interceptions with three, immediately got up from the ground and started wincing.
Kenny Moore replaced Melvin in the starting lineup at cornerback.
Kelly, who has started every game he has played in his two-year career, likely suffered the concussion in the first half because he was ruled out at the start of the third quarter when the offense was still on the sideline. Kelly missed the first four games of the season with a foot injury. Mike Person replaced Kelly at center.
