Julian Blackmon, DB (IND)

Tears Achilles, done for season

Blackmon sustained a torn Achilles' tendon in Wednesday's practice and is set to miss the rest of the season, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

When Blackmon appeared on the Colts' first Week 7 injury report Wednesday as a limited participant, the prevailing belief was that his reps were capped for maintenance purposes. However, he apparently picked up the injury during practice, with follow-up tests later revealing that the second-year player suffered a tendon tear that will require season-ending surgery. The loss of Blackmon is a major blow to the Indianapolis defense, as the safety had emerged as a key piece in the secondary with 34 tackles (27 solo), a pass breakup and a forced fumble through the team's first six contests. He'll now turn his focus to getting healthy in advance of the 2022 campaign.
