Davis Has Avoided Major Injury in 2015

Davis managed to overcome injury scares in Week 5 (foot) and Week 8 (ankle) and has yet to miss a game this season. 

However, it's been a difficult go at 2015 for Davis, who has had problems covering the opposition's top receivers. 

IndySportsCentral.com's Mike Chappell tried to sum it up as succinctly as possible:

His performance is just one of the many reasons why the Colts are a bottom-10 group when it comes to defending the pass. 

Darius Butler could see a bump in playing time if Davis is sidelined again. Having never received regular starting time, Butler had a span of eight interceptions in two years from 2012 to 2013, but he didn't have any last year.
