Colts waive-injured receiver Trey Griffey

The son of Ken Griffey Jr. has had his football career derailed, for now.

The Colts have waived receiver Trey Griffey with the “injured” designation. If he’s unclaimed, Griffey will land on the team’s injured reserve list.

Griffey’s stay on IR will depend on the duration of the injury. He can be released from injured reserve when healed. Likewise, the Colts and Griffey can negotiate an injury settlement.

His roster spot will be filled by receiver Chris Briggs, who was waived by the Seahawks on May 9.

    How bad does a player need to be to be waived by the Colts?

    Seahawks fans would welcome Griffey’s son, even though we know he’ll eventually dump us for Cincinnati. (Yeah, still stings.)

    Good time for them to bring Kaep onboard, instead of whoever Chris Briggs is…

    Griffey was always still loved in Seattle, even Randy Johnson was welcomed back with open arms. Only person Mariner fans don’t like is Alex Rodriguez

    As a fellow Arizona Wildcat, I’m cheering for Trey, but he already had an uphill battle for a roster spot before he was injured. Best of luck to him and I hope he catches on somewhere.

    One thing to note is if Trey is injury prone like his dad. I loved having Griffey in the line up, but he spent a bit of time watching… and that was just baseball. This is a contact sport. I hope he heals quickly but I would have some reservations about longevity.
