Colts S Melvin Bullitt To Injured Reserve, Sign Former Patriot LB A.J. Edds

News was not good today for Colts starting safety Melvin Bullitt, whose injured shoulder is going to require season-ending surgery, and he's being placed on IR, according to FOX-59 Reporter Chris Hagan:

Colts safety Melvin Bullitt needs shoulder surgery and will be put on IR which means he's out for the season.

This is now the second season in a row his season has ended with a shoulder injury, and it makes you wonder whether he'll be able to play again without the threat of injuring the same shoulder again. For his sake, I hope he can come back from it, and the surgery will fix what's wrong. But for a guy who is asked to tackle a lot, an injured shoulder is not something you want.

Taking Bullitt's roster spot will be former Patriot and Dolphin LB A.J. Edds, a Greenwood, Ind. resident and Iowa Hawkeye (have we had any of these guys before?). He was teammates with super-tackler Pat Angerer, so there should be some good chemistry right off the bat. This was first reported by the Greenwood Daily Journal.

This still means the Colts will have to make one more roster move after signing Dan Orlovsky yesterday. A likely candidate will be a linebacker, as I think the Edds signing puts the Colts at 8 on the active roster.
