WESTFIELD, Ind. — The Indianapolis Colts have claimed running back D’Onta Foreman off waivers from Houston.

He was cut by the Texans on Sunday after coach Bill O’Brien expressed displeasure with Foreman, Houston’s third-round pick in 2016 out of Texas.

The 6-foot-1, 235-pound Foreman logged 85 carries for 326 yards and two scores and caught eight passes for 111 yard and one touchdown in two seasons with Houston.

Indy made room on the roster by cutting recently signed running back Keith Ford.

The Colts also could be without starting defensive end Jabaal Sheard indefinitely. Sheard hasn’t practiced since July 25 because of an injured knee. On Monday, defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus told reporters Sheard is still helping out in the meeting room.
