Colts Sign Three Including RB Charcandrick West, Place RB D’Onta Foreman & WR Reece Fountain On IR

The Colts announced Monday they have placed RB D’Onta Foreman and WR Daurice Fountain on injured reserve. 

Indianapolis also waived S Derrick Kindred and signed S Kai Nacua, RB Charcandrick West and RB Marquis Young in corresponding moves. 

The move is expected for Fountain, who recently underwent surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated ankle. The Colts claimed Foreman off waivers from the Texans after Houston cut bait with the former third-round pick. 

West, 28, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Abilene Christian back in 2014. He returned to the Chiefs on an exclusive rights contract in 2016 before agreeing to a three-year, $4.2 million contract.

West was set to make a base salary of $1.45 million for the 2018 season when the Chiefs released him. The Jets signed him to a contract last August but waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.

From there, West returned to the Chiefs in December and finished out the year in Kansas City. 

West appeared in three games for the Chiefs in 2018 and rushed for -1 yard on two carries to go along with two receptions for 37 yards receiving and one touchdown.

Foreman, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in 2017. He signed a four-year contract worth $3,159,484 that includes a signing bonus of $759,484 and stands to make a base salary of $678,500 for the 2019 season.

In 2017, Foreman rushed for 327 yards on 78 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with six receptions for 83 yards receiving and two touchdowns over the course of 10 games. His 2017 season came to an end with him being placed on injured reserve.

Kindred, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,839,356 rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $2,025,000 for the 2019 season when the Browns waived him in April. He was subsequently claimed by the Colts. 

In 2018, Kindred appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 43 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 90 safety out of 93 qualifying players.
