Butler started at cornerback and had five total tackles in Sunday's loss to Houston. Butler moved from nickelback to starting opposite Vontae Davis with Greg Toler out. Butler played 73 of 76 snaps on defense and could continue to see an expanded role if Toler remains out.
Colts cornerback Darius Butler (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Both Butler and Vontae Davis are listed as probable after practicing fully Friday, so they should both play this week, which is more than can be said for fellow CB Greg Toler, who has been ruled out by the team.
Colts cornerback Darius Butler (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans. Fellow cornerback Greg Toler is also ruled out for the game, but on the plus side, it looks like Vontae Davis will be a go on Sunday and he's thus slated to start opposite Jalil Brown.
The Colts announced they have reached a contract extension with cornerback Darius Butler. Butler recorded 46 tackles and nine pass deflections in 2014. Butler has been the Colts' nickel back since joining the team in 2012. Butler was a former second-round pick by the Patriots in the 2009 NFL draft.
Only one Colts starter was unable to practice Wednesday as the team began on-field preparation for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Denver. Cornerback Greg Toler sat out with a knee injury, with coach Chuck Pagano calling him day to day, reports ESPN.com. Toler made 57 tackles, adding two interceptions, a forced fumble and a sack, in 15 games. If Toler can't play, Josh Gordy and Darius Butler would see increased snaps. Indy is a 7-point underdog.
