Melvin left Sunday's loss at Denver with thigh cramps in the second half and did not return, ESPN 107.5 in Indianapolis reports.
Melvin was thrust into a starting role with the Indianapolis secondary decimated by injuries, but he added to the team's injury woes. He should be able to return this week, but we'll need to see if it's related a more serious ailment.
Morris was pressed into duty with three members of the secondary getting hurt during the game. He could be Indy's nickelback this week if none of the six injured secondary members returns.
Rashaan Melvin was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.
A 2013 UDFA, Melvin surprisingly ended up making starts last season, as the Ravens defensive backfield was decimated by injuries. He turned in a couple of nice performances, before Tom Brady and the New England offense picked on him relentlessly in a playoff game. Melvin made just one appearance this season, and he got the same treatment from Andy Dalton and the Bengals. It's not a great sign for Melvin's NFL future that he was released by a team whose biggest weakness corresponds with his position.
