Adam Schefter reports via Twitter that Melvin Bullitt broke a bone in his right shoulder and will miss the remainder of the 2010 season.  It goes without saying that the Colts started the year with the strongest and deepest safety group in the NFL only to have two major injuries leaving the unit depleted.  Back-up veteran safety DaJuan Morgan and rookie cornerback conversion Brandon King, who has missed time to a hamstring injury, are the only safeties currently on the roster behind Pro Bowl free safety Antoine Bethea.

Look for the Colts to sign a veteran to replace Bullitt sometime very soon.  While Colts fans entered the season hopeful that the Indy injury curse would end, the opposite has happened.  To this point in the young season a grand total of eight starting caliber players have missed time, with numerous key backups having their seasons end prematurely.  Will provide more information as it is available.
