SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Indianapolis Colts announced that former Ute Julian Blackmon will miss the rest of the season because of an Achilles tear.

The injury happened in practice, according to a social media post from the team.

“We will continue to trust our Lord! He had this planned for me from the beginning. It’s how we respond that matters! Let’s get this W this week!!” Blackson responded to the injury with positivity on Twitter.

Blackmon is no stranger to injuries, in his final game with the Utes (the Pac-12 Championship) he tore his ACL. After a long recovery, he was drafted higher than anticipated by the Colts and performed well his rookie season.

This season, Blackmon recorded 34 tackles and one forced fumble. His electric presence will be missed on the Colts’ defense this season.

The Colts are 2-4 on the season. This week they are preparing to take on the San Fransisco 49ers on the road.
