Indianapolis Colts safety Armani Watts will miss the upcoming season after sustaining an ankle injury in Saturday’s preseason finale, coach Frank Reich announced.
Watts was carted off the field after getting hurt on the opening kickoff of the Colts’ 27-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“Yeah, it’s an ankle injury that’s going to keep him out for the year,” Reich said. “He’s going to have to have a procedure done. I don’t want to confirm all the details, but I think it was pretty significant.”
Watts, 26, signed with the Colts in the offseason after spending four years with the Kansas City Chiefs.
He recorded 58 tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery in 53 career games (one start) since the Chiefs selected him in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
