Roster Moves: Colts place WR Deon Cain on IR; sign WR Matt Hazel and RB Branden Oliver Chris Ballard and the Indianapolis Colts are busy making roster moves on Sunday afternoon.The Colts have agreed to deals with wide receiver Matt Hazel and running back Branden Oliver. With the signings Womens Darius Leonard Jersey
, Indy also waived wide receiver Dres Anderson and placed highly-touted wide receiver Deon Cain on Injured Reserve. The addition of another wide receiver was expected after the team announced Cain tore his Anterior Collateral Ligament in the Colts’ preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. Hazel, 26, saw time on Indy’s active roster and practice squad last season. Before that, he spent time on the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad in 2017. Hazel has one career reception for one yard. Hazel has appeared in nine games, starting one for the Browns in 2017. In his previous stint with the Colts Peyton Manning Jersey White
, he played in four games. Hazel has also seen time with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins. With Marlon Mack dealing with a hamstring injury, and Robert Turbin dealing with an ankle issue and a suspension, Indy adds running back depth with Oliver in the backfield. Oliver, 27, saw playing time in 30 career games over the last four seasons (2014-17) with the Los Angeles Chargers Womens Andrew Luck Jersey
, starting eight games and amassing 773 yards on 226 carries (3.4 yards an attempt). The Colts adding Oliver makes sense in a lot of ways. For one, Oliver played for Colts head coach Frank Reich when he was a part of the Chargers coaching staff from 2014-2016. Oliver was mentioned as a possibility to join the Colts in our free agent prospects piece yesterday. The Chiefs drafted quarterback Patrick Mahomes for days like this. But not for days like .It’s snowing in Kansas City, with a winter storm warning in place until 7:00 p.m. ET. And as the snow falls and the wind whips and the natural grass becomes slick (after the tarp is removed), Mahomes could have a harder time doing Mahomes things.If the conditions affect the passing game, the advantage could flip to the Colts Malik Hooker Jersey
, who can pound it behind a great offensive line. The Chiefs would benefit under those circumstances from the return of Spencer Ware, who last played in Week 14 against the Ravens. (He’s listed as questionable.) Ware would complement Damien Williams, who rushed for more than 100 yards in Week 16 against Seattle’s potent run defense.Even if the game is affected by the weather, it’s hard to imagine Mahomes not finding a way to shine. His uncanny skills include the ability to always color within the lines, not doing more than he’s capable of doing. He’ll likely know what he’s capable of doing in this kind of weather Darius Leonard Jersey White
, and he’ll likely find a way to do it.
