The Indianapolis Colts are at the bye week, which is expected to help several banged up players on both sides of the ball heal up before they face the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football on November 1.
According to a league source, one player who'll have additional time to heal is rookie defensive back Brandon King, whose injured hamstring has landed him on injured reserve.
A 5-10, 194-pound undrafted free agent from Purdue, King appeared in four games for the Colts this season, recording his first NFL tackle while covering a punt in the first quarter in Sunday night's win over the Washington Redskins.
King also recovered Colts punt returner Kenny Moore's fumble in the second quarter. The Colts released Moore on Tuesday after claiming running back Andre Brown off waivers from the Denver Broncos.
The Colts also released fullback/h-back Matt Clapp from the practice squad.
