We have waived LB Malik Jefferson.— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) January 4, 2022
The 4th year linebacker appeared in 1 game for the Colts this season, playing 38% of the team’s total special teams snaps during Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
He was promoted from the Colts practice squad in mid-December.
No other active 53-man roster move was announced, so perhaps this is a precursor to another transaction that is soon forthcoming. It’s also quite possible that Jefferson could eventually find himself back on the Colts practice squad—should he clear league waivers.
