Colts Place CB D.J. Killings On IR

The Colts placed cornerback D.J. Killings on injured reserve and waived cornerback Arthur Maulet, according to a team announcement. The Colts already plucked offensive lineman Josh Andrews from the Eagles’ practice squad to fill one roster spot, but they have one more vacancy left to fill.

Killings was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad last week, but an ankle injury limited him in practice. It turns out that his ankle injury is severe enough to rule him out for the remainder of the season.

It’s a frustrating turn of events for Killings, but he’s been here before. He lost his 2015 season at UCF to injury but bounced back in the next season to start in all 13 games. He recorded 42 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one sack, and 11 pass break-ups in his final year on campus, leading to a healthy amount of interest following the 2017 draft. Killings will now set his sights on the 2019 season when he’ll look to see his first live action in the NFL.

Saints Move Coby Fleener To IR

The concussion Coby Fleener sustained against the Rams last week induced the Saints to place their starting tight end on IR, Nick Underhill of The Advocate tweets.

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported this week Fleener’s concussion could linger. He was declared out for this week. To replace Fleener on the 53-man roster, the Saints promted tight end Garrett Griffin from their practice squad, Rapoport tweets.

The Saints also waived cornerback De’Vante Harris, per Herbie Teope of NOLA.com (on Twitter), and promoted cornerback Arthur Maulet from the practice squad.

Fleener has not missed a game since his rookie season, suiting up for all 16 of the Colts’ contests from 2013-15 and each of the Saints’ games last season. He played in 11 New Orleans tilts this year prior to a nasty Blake Countess hit in Los Angeles.

The former second-round pick has become a lower-end target for Drew Brees this season, averaging 26.8 yards per game, but still leads the Saints’ tight ends by a healthy margin. Fleener caught two touchdown passes this season, but it will mark by far his lowest receiving output since his rookie year. He finished with 631 air yards last season. Josh Hill, Michael Hoomanawanui and now Griffin comprise the tight end contingent on New Orleans’ active roster.

Fleener is under contract through the 2020 season.

Harris played in all 11 Saints games this season, starting one. The 2016 UDFA recorded 15 tackles and deflected two passes. Maulet played in one career game, against the Panthers in Week 3. He may well have a chance to play a second against the Panthers on Sunday.
