Colts waive Boom Herron from injured reserve

When the Colts were making their way to 53 players last weekend, they waived running back Boom Herron with an injured designation, which meant that he reverted to their injured reserve when he went unclaimed on the waiver wire.

Going on injured reserve usually ends a player’s season, but Herron will be able to play again in 2015. The Colts announced Friday that they have waived Herron with an injury settlement, which means he can be claimed by any of the other 31 teams in the league or become a free agent.

It’s the same roster move that the Seahawks made with running back Robert Turbin, who was claimed off of waivers by the Browns. Herron has a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, which should not be a season-ending injury at this point in the schedule.

Herron ran 78 times for 351 yards and a touchdown last season and added 170 yards and two touchdowns on 45 postseason carries.

The Colts also announced they have waived guard Robert Myers to make room for defensive lineman Billy Winn, who was acquired in a trade from the Browns on Friday.

  1. Who cares anyway. The cry baby Colt’s will not amount to much with that Swiss cheese defense of theirs anyway. I can’t wait till we play them and get to spank them again. Go pat’s.
    What ever happened to the under inflated colts balls? Gee something got overlooked. Cover up.

  2. You can’t even spell Pats correctly. Tool.

    New England was not exactly the second coming of Doomsday last night and if not for dumb self-inflicted Pittsburgh wounds, they would have lost. You might stop crowing and doing more worrying about your own defense that gave up 480 yards to a team without their best offensive player.

    And just because some judge ruled that the NFL’s attempted suspension was excessive, it does not mean Brady was innocent. He is not – everybody knows he is still a cheater.

  3. Boom was expendable. I liked him, and wish him well. Grigson makes too many moves. If he would make tbe right move to begin with, i wouldnt have to read a trolling pats fan every thread with the colts.

  4. And just because some judge ruled that the NFL’s attempted suspension was excessive, it does not mean Brady was innocent. He is not – everybody knows he is still a cheater

    No, I know he threw 4 tds against your sucky secondary. you losers always have to cry foul!

    Lol do people still say this crap. If so and so did this or didnt make these mistakes they would’ve won. Wow really? At the end of the say the score is what matters and the patriots outscored the Steelers.

    Yep, the losers still say it.

    I caught some other bozo claiming that raper Ben could have easily scored 30 on the Patriots. I guess not, because he didn’t. Unless he cheated by losing on purpose.

  7. They scored the last touchdown in garbage time…… The Pats will improve defensively every week, that is what they do and how they are coached!!!
    I am first and foremost a Viking Fan, but have been a Brady and Pats fan from afar since I was little!
    I wish my Vikings team would learn how to be Winners and run a flawless organization like BB does….. They are always a step ahead!! And losers cry fowl and cry cheat!!
    Brady threw a pretty sexy ball last night!! I am sure he somehow cheated too??? Man, fans that cry and slam the pats for cheating are the same band geeks that watched me sleep with all the pretty girls in high school , saying, he must be lying to them ?? NOT, it’s called Game!!!
