The Indianapolis Colts officially placed TE Mike McFarland on their injured reserve list Wednesday after he cleared waivers.
McFarland, 24, signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida a few days after this year’s NFL draft. However, he was later waived with the injury designation a few weeks into the preseason, and placed on injured reserve with a calf injury.
Houston wound up releasing him with a settlement a few months later. The Colts signed him to a contract back in late March, but elected to cut him loose on Tuesday.
Should he pass through waivers unclaimed, McFarland would likely revert to the Colts’ injured reserve list.
McFarland has yet to appear in an NFL game.
