The Indianapolis Colts have re-signed veteran linebacker Tyjuan Hagler, a league source said.
Hagler was released by the Colts on Thursday to make room for running back Javarris James, who was signed off the Washington Redskins practice squad.
The 6-0, 236-pound Hagler had a pair of special teams tackles for the Colts last week, his first game since re-signing with the team that chose the former University of Cincinnati standout in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. Hagler re-signed with the Colts on September 29 after going to training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, where he posted a team-high 20 tackles during the pre-season.
To make room on the 53-man roster for Hagler, safety DaJuan Morgan has been waived.
Morgan signed with the Colts on September 15, after it was learned that Bob Sanders would be out indefinitely with a biceps injury. Morgan posted one tackle in two games for the Colts, who may have picked his brain this week as the Colts prepared to face the Kansas City Chiefs, who chose Morgan in the third-round (82nd overall) in the 2008 NFL Draft.
