The Colts waived RB Donta Foreman from injured reserve with an injury settlement, per Joel Erickson of the Indianapolis Star.
After being acquired off waivers from the Texans just three weeks ago, Foreman’s 2019 season was thought to be down the drain after being placed on injured reserve. However, he will possibly get an opportunity with a team late in the season, as he will now be free to sign elsewhere. The expected timetable from his biceps injury is about four months, so a team may take a chance on him for a stretch run or as depth in the playoffs. In any event, Foreman at least now has some chance of playing in 2019.
HOU RB Donta Foreman - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook
Perhaps no Texans player was under more scrutiny this offseason than D'Onta Foreman following a disappointing, injury-marred year. He has worked diligently to get in better shape, and reported for the team's conditioning program weighing a much leaner 230 pounds. Foreman began last season on the physically unable to perform list, still recovering from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered as a rookie. When he returned to action after being activated in December, Foreman wasn't the same. He was rusty and not in proper football shape. But the third-year man is in position to get off to a faster start this season with multiple observers reporting Foreman is in great shape heading into training camp.
We have a narrow band of production to work with here. Foreman rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie after being drafted in the third round.
2019 Bottom Line
Prior to his injury, Foreman had shown enough talent that there was talk of him eventually replacing Pro Bowl running back Lamar Miller. He'll be worth watching this summer and would have immediate value if something happens to Miller.
