The Indianapolis Colts made a rather big roster move today by moving cornerback Rashaan Melvin to Injured Reserve, but one move that went under the radar was when the team announced that they waived receiver Quan Bray from IR.
Bray was placed on IR on November 7 after suffering an unspecified injury. He caught 3 passes for 39 yards in 2017, returned 17 punts for a 5.3-yard average and 18 kickoffs for a 23.9-yard average for Indianapolis.
Unfortunately for Bray, both his 2016 and 2017 seasons were cut short due to injuries, being placed on IR. The Colts will most likely be searching for someone to replace Bray as the primary kick returner. Chester Rogers is a likely candidate for the future as he been handling duties in Bray’s absence.
Bray was originally signed onto the Colts on May 5, 2015, was waived by the team on September 5, 2015, re-signed to the practice squad and then signed by the Colts to the active roster from the practice squad on October 27, 2015. During his three seasons with Indianapolis, Bray returned 45 punts (7.0-yard average) as well as 48 kickoffs with a 25.6-yard average. As a pass catcher, Bray recorded 6 receptions for 75 yards through three seasons.
