Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Troy Walters broke his right arm on the first series of Saturday night's preseason game against the New York Jets.
Walters was injured when Peyton Manning tried to throw a deep pass over the middle. As Walters looked up and reached for the ball, New York Jets
safety Jon McGraw closed fast and hit him hard around the shoulders. Walters crashed to the ground and lay on the field for several minutes,

There was no immediate word on how much time Walters might miss.
Last season, Walters set career-highs with 36 receptions, 456 yards and three touchdowns. He started as the Colts' third receiver Saturday night when
