The offensive line of the Indianapolis Colts has long been an area of concern. Things just got worse, as offensive guard Jack Mewhort is believed to have torn his ACL during Sunday’s shootout against the Detroit Lions.

Since being selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Mewhort has started 31 games. He was one of the strongest performers on a rather dismal line before this injury.
In addition to being a capable pass protector, Mewhort will be missed in the running game as well.
The Colts are razor thin in terms of talent on their offensive line. It looks like it might be up to rookie Joe Haeg, who was selected in the fifth round of this year’s draft, to take over.
