Allen Kee / ESPN Image(INDIANAPOLIS) — For Colts defensive end Kemoko Turay, the NFL season has come to an early end. Turay suffered a broken ankle during the second half of Sunday’s win over Kansas City, a source told ESPN.
Late in the fourth quarter, Turay injured his ankle while in pursuit of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, according to ESPN. His teammates showed their support by taking a knee as a cart removed Turay from the field.
Turay, who has often served in backup roles and on special teams, has worked extensively with Justin Houston and former Colts defensive end Robert Mathis, ESPN reports. Last week he talked about “one of the best things” Houston had taught him — to “keep studying.”
“Study the opponent. Put it on film that you play both sides and then you’re giving O-linemen more to study instead of just one thing to study. You’re playing chess with them,” he said of Houston’s advice.
Turay is ending his second season with 1.5 sacks.
