J’Marcus Webb picked up a start for his fifth team on Sunday, but the veteran offensive lineman won’t have a chance to suit up again for a while. He may miss the rest of the season.
The Colts placed Webb on IR on Tuesday and promoted cornerback Lenzy Pipkins, a recent trade acquisition, from their practice squad, the team announced.
Webb started in place of Denzelle Good at right tackle and suffered a hamstring injury late in the fourth quarter of Indianapolis’ Week 1 loss. The Colts were already without their top tackle, left-side starter Anthony Castonzo, but are expected to have him ready for Week 2. Good sat Sunday because of wrist and knee injuries.
Indianapolis signed Webb to a one-year deal worth the league minimum in late July. The 30-year-old blocker’s now started for the Bears, Vikings, Raiders, Seahawks and Colts. He may not profile as an IR-return candidate, given the other injuries that could affect more essential players’ statuses early in the season.
Pipkins came to Indiana via trade, with the Packers shipping the defensive back in exchange for linebacker Antonio Morrison last month. The Colts waived Pipkins, a 2017 UDFA, after training camp but stashed him on their practice squad.
