Colts cut Shaun Draughn after four days for line depth

Thomas Austin AP

Shaun Draughn’s stay in Indianapolis was a short one.

The Colts announced they waived the running back, who was signed Tuesday, so they could add some offensive line depth instead.

The Colts promoted center Thomas Austin from the practice squad to fill his spot. Austin has played in seven games and started one, spending time with the Texans and the Panthers.

The Colts were a little thin up front, with tackle Jeff Linkenbach (quadricep) and guard Joe Reitz (concussion) doubtful, so it appears they needed the reinforcements there instead of a fourth running back.

    Why is this even news? who the heck is he and who the heck cares? Does he have a tumor or something? a real good come back story?

    I know these things happen often in the NFL, but it must suck to go from the high of being picked up, or elevated from the practice squad and then being cut a few days later, even BEFORE one game has been played.

    He was with the Chiefs until the later round of cuts, Indy probably brought him in for a little inside scoop on this week’s opponent

    He was a former Chief. Coincidence?

    It took four days to figure out he didn’t know the Chiefs offense anymore?

    Did he get an xbox one?

    He didn’t play like a Raven so, the Ravens let him go before the Chiefs had him.

    So he doesn’t play like a Raven, a Chief, or a Colt. That negates Avians, Equines, and Humans. Maybe he can play like a fish for the Dolphins? Maybe he can play like a Ram?
