The recent NFL tradition of heads rolling upon the losing team's return from London continued on Tuesday.
A pair of starters on Indianapolis' 30th-ranked scoring defense have lost their jobs.
The 32-year-old cornerback was benched in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars after allowing a touchdown to star receiver Allen Robinson at London's Wembley Stadium. He was deemed expendable with Davis and Robinson back in the lineup and slot corner Darius Butler due back soon.
It's rarely a positive measure when key contributors are dumped on the Tuesday of game week. In this case, it's a sign that the Colts finally have better options on a feeble defense.
