Farley (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.
Farley left last Thursday's game against the Patriots and was unable to practice this week. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but with Clayton Geathers (neck) already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Colts were in dire need of help at safety. Veteran Mike Mitchell was signed this week to bolster their depth, while tight end Mo Alie-Cox takes his place on the 53-man roster.
Farley had six tackles and an interception in Thursday's 38-24 loss to the Patriots, but he eventually left the game with a hamstring injury.
Farley also totaled two pass breakups as he saw an increased workload Thursday following Clayton Geathers' exit with a neck injury. Farley left the game after sustaining his hamstring injury during the fourth quarter and did not return.
Farley suffered a hamstring injury Thursday against the Patriots and will not return.
Farley suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and gets the remainder of the night off given how out of hand the game is. Before exiting the game, the safety did record six tackles, two passes defensed and an interception off a tipped ball. Look for more updates on his status to come next week when the Colts resume practice.
Farley had three total tackles and played 23 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Farley got playing time in dime packages and also played 22 snaps on special teams. He could get more playing time as Indy's secondary figures to be in flux with many inexperienced players, but his role will be limited in the short term.
Farley also added seven pass breakups and finished second on the team in total tackles. The 25-year-old put forth a productive sophomore season and will likely compete with Clayton Geathers for a starting role at safety for the Colts in 2018, opposite of Malik Hooker.
