INDIANAPOLIS –An injury to tight end Mo Alie-Cox has led to a roster move for the Indianapolis Colts.
On Saturday morning, the Colts signed free agent tight end Steven Wroblewski and waived-injured Alie-Cox. If Alie-Cox clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts Injured Reserve List.
In the past few days of Training Camp, Alie-Cox has been sidelined with a boot on his lower left leg.
Given the recent trend of collegiate basketball players making the transition to professional football, much hype surrounded Alie-Cox's signing with the Colts back in the spring.
At VCU, Alie-Cox was a three-year starter on the hardwood, averaging 9.5 points and 4.2 rebounds during his senior season.
After VCU's basketball season came to a close in March's NCAA Tournament, the attention towards Alie-Cox really picked up.
How the Colts have developed Mo Alie-Cox from the practice squad to the team's No. 2 tight end was intriguing to Alie-Cox.
With Saturday's transaction, the Colts' roster remains at 90 players going into the second week of Training Camp.
Wroblewski, 6-7, 252 pounds, was a 2017 undrafted free agent from Southern Utah. He participated in Arizona's offseason program before being waived on July 27.
