INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts fortified an injury-filled secondary Monday by signing veteran cornerback Antonio Cromartie.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available when the team made the announcement.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Cromartie has 31 interceptions and 115 passes defensed in 10 seasons that started in San Diego. He played four seasons with the New York Jets, spent 2014 with Arizona and returned to the Jets last season. Cromartie's interception total ranks third among all active players.

Indy needed another cornerback after one starter, Patrick Robinson, hurt his groin in Saturday night's 19-18 loss to Baltimore. Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis is considered week to week after an MRI found that he has a sprained ankle.
