The Indianapolis Colts announced that they’ve placed DT Henry Anderson on season-ending injured reserve and waived CB Tony Carter.
- Will Carroll reports that Anderson has “severe” ACL sprain and is expected to undergo surgery at some point in the near future.
Carter, 29, signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out Florida State of back in 2009. He briefly played for the Patriots and Vikings before rejoining the Broncos in 2011 when he signed to their practice squad.
However, he was unfortunately among the team’s final roster cuts.
- Rapoport adds that Anderson will undergo an MRI to confirm the severity of the injury.
Following Sunday’s win over the Broncos, Colts HC Chuck Pagano told reporters that Anderson suffered a “significant” knee injury, so this probably shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.
Anderson, 24, was taken in the third round of this year’s NFL draft. He signed a four-year, $2,937,176 rookie contract with the Colts and stands to make a base salary of $435,000 for the 2015 season.
This season, Anderson appeared in nine games and recorded 31 tackles, one sack and two passes defenses for the Colts’ defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 55 qualifying players.
