Colts TE Erik Swoope (knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 13. He could be the No. 2 tight end this week if he can play. The Colts just signed Clive Walford off the street.
Tight end Chris Herndon has the skills to make an important contribution sooner rather than later. Although the rookie fourth-round pick insists that “I’m not looking too far ahead,” it’s tantalizing to envision Sam Darnold and Herndon making sweet music together for the next decade.
The 6-foot-4, 253-pound rookie is competing with four others for the starting tight end job, but know this: The organization believes that Herndon will rise above the pack and produce in 2018.
The story said the team loves Herndon and believes he will be a difference maker moving forward. He was described as having elusiveness, nastiness, and power. Also, as the story pointed out, the TE position "has been a barren wasteland" for most of Todd Bowles' regime, so there are some high expectations.
