Today the Indianapolis Colts waived another receiver from IR with an injury settlement who they had high hopes for in the 2018 season. Krishawn Hogan entered the 2018 training camp with a knee brace, but quickly shed it and began his journey towards making the Colts 53-man roster.

Ultimately, he fell short of breaking through and was moved to IR as the team cut down to their initial roster. Similar to the situation with K.J. Brent, Hogan’s settlement length will determine how long he has to come back. For the Colts, should they be interested in getting him back, they’d have to wait an additional six weeks to do so.
In terms of talent, I don’t think there’s much of an argument for Hogan returning before Brent, but the coaching staff still likes Hogan’s upside. The Colts receiver corps has taken a large hit this year already, and the team still has three receivers on IR.
Deon Cain is easily the most disappointing addition to IR after his impressive start to training camp and was expected to battle for WR3 snaps if his ascension continued. The Colts will likely move the bottom line at receiver throughout the season, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see at least one who’s agreed to a settlement return at some point or another.
