In a position that has been decimated by injury, the Colts signed wide receiver Krishawn Hogan to the practice squad, and in order to make room in-turn released K.J. Brent from the practice squad, the team announced.
Krishawn Hogan, who appeared in two games in 2017 with the Colts and had a cup of coffee with them during 2018 offseason workouts, was added to the practice squad on Friday. In order to make room for him, the team released fellow receiver K.J. Brent from the practice squad, after signing him just three days ago.
Both players were part of the Colts’ offseason and played with the team through the summer (thanks in large-part to the NFL’s new no-cuts preseason rule) before receiving injury settlements in early September.
The Colts have been hurting at receiver, and not just because they keep dropping passes left and right. T. Y. Hilton has missed the previous two games with a hamstring injury, Marcus Johnson was placed in Injured Reserve with a ligament tear (something the Jets’ Trenton Cannon feels awful about) and Ryan Grant has already been ruled out for Week 7 against the Bills.
Hopefully this move improves the depth at the position and increases competition. Even though Hogan, won’t play a ton, if gives the Colts some breathing room with injuries. They can bring Grant back slowly if need be.
