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.
Wilson went on to say the Colts had plans for him and were bringing him along slowly, and he was expected to play an entire half in next game until this season-ending injury occurred. The plan for Foreman now is to rehab for next year with Colts.
The Colts made a change in the backfield, as they look for some experience there.
The team announced a series of transactions Monday, which included placing just-acquired running back Donta Foreman on injured reserve, and signing veteran running back Charcandrick West.
The Colts had recently claimed Foreman from the Texans but he's going on IR for an "undisclosed" reason, according to other sources. West has been back and forth with the Chiefs and is mostly considered a third-down back.
In our report from earlier in the day about Foreman getting released, Crockett wasn't listed among the favorites to see the time Foreman was getting, but this tweet is quite the opposite. Crockett is a name to keep an eye on especially for those who end up with Miller in fantasy drafts. Reports are now saying Crockett could slip into the role Foreman had.
