Colts bring Griff Whalen back to the active roster

The Colts added a needed body to their wide receiver corps, and it’s at least a familiar face.

The team announced they promoted wideout Griff Whalen from the practice squad, giving them some depth after Reggie Wayne was lost for the season with a torn ACL last Sunday night.

Whalen’s played in three games for the Colts this year, catching two passes. But his familiarity runs much deeper than that. He was one of quarterback Andrew Luck’s favorite targets at Stanford (where Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton was calling the plays).

He fills the roster spot created last week when they waived tight end Dominique Jones.

    Griff won’t be Reggie (no one is), but he is sure handed and runs good routes. I think this is a better move than signing a FA and giving up draft picks, Griff knows the offense… Hopefully he can fill in capably

    I’m glad Grigs didn’t trade away any more draft picks for a WR who wouldn’t have known the system.
