Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis has passed the NFL’s concussion protocol and is cleared to play in Sunday’s contest against the Tennessee Titans.

Davis was injured in the second quarter of Monday’s loss to the New York Jets when he was attempting to make a tackle.

Davis said his condition has improved substantially over the past few days.

“I feel a lot better,” said Davis, who made the Pro Bowl after last season. “Just getting back in practice and working with my teammates.”

Davis’ return is timely as two of secondary mates are still ailing. Starting cornerback Greg Toler missed the first two games with a neck injury and backup cornerback Darius Butler (hip) could sit out for the second straight game.
