Colts place starting defensive lineman on injured reserve

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts put starting defensive tackle Al Woods on injured reserve Tuesday.

The move comes two days after Woods left Indy’s shutout over Dallas with a foot injury.

Woods appeared in all 14 games this season and had 24 tackles, including one for loss. He could become a free agent in March.

Woods, Margus Hunt and Denico Autry played key roles in a Colts’ rotation that helped lead Indy to seven wins in eight games and jump back into playoff contention. Indy hosts the New York Giants on Sunday.

Indy also put backup linebacker Skai Moore on injured reserve and added safety J.J. Wilcox to the active roster. Former Indiana University linebacker Tegray Scales was signed to the practice squad.
