Colts lose rookie Cain with season-ending knee injury

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts rookie Deon Cain will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during Thursday’s preseason game at Seattle.

Coach Frank Reich provided the update during a conference call with reporters.

Cain, a sixth-round pick in this year’s draft, played so well at training camp it appeared he would see significant action this season.

Reich says he believes Cain was injured while running a deep route and making a cut to come back to the ball.

Running backs Marlon Mack and Robert Turbin also were injured. Mack left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. Turbin hurt his ankle later. Both are listed week to week.
