Colts WR Deon Cain suffered a knee injury during Thursday’s preseason game against the Seahawks.
Michael Lombardi of the Ringer hears that Cain’s knee injury could be season-ending.
Cain has been a standout receiver for the Colts this summer, so it would be a big disappointment if his knee injury is as bad as some fear.
Cain, 22, was selected by the Colts in the sixth round of this year’s NFL draft. He signed a four-year, $2,625,636 contract with the Colts and stands to make base salaries of $480,000 and $570,000 over the first two years of the contract.
During his college career at Clemson, Cain caught 130 passes for 2,040 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 40 games.
