The Indianapolis Colts announced on Saturday that they are placing DE Kendall Langford on injured reserve and are promoting CB Christopher Milton to fill his spot on the 53-man roster.
Langford, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2008. He spent four years in Miami and played three seasons for the Rams before signing a four-year, $17.2 million contract with the Colts back in 2015.
Langford stands to make base salaries of $3 million (2016), $4 million (2017) and $4.2 million (2018) over the remainder of the contract.
In 2016, Langford has appeared in seven games for the Colts and recorded 10 tackles, no sacks, a fumble recovery and two pass defences.
Milton, 24, joined the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech. He signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract and is set to earn a base salary of $450,000 this season.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
During his four-year college career, Milton recorded 96 total tackles, three tackles-for-loss, five interceptions, and 12 pass defences.
