The Colts announced Wednesday that they placed defensive end Fili Moala on injured reserve. Moala partially tore his ACL after colliding with a teammate during OTAs and his knee buckled, NFL.com reports. The tear occurred in Moala's right knee, the same knee injury he suffered in Nov. 2012. The 28-year-old re-signed with the Colts this offseason as a rotational player. Moala started six games in 2013 and earned the second-most snaps along the Colts' defensive front. He produced 1.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hurries.

The Colts are in largely good health for Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Chiefs, as their inactive list is made up of healthy scratches, with the exception of injured defensive lineman Fili Moala (knee). Joining Moala on the inactive list are linebacker Daniel Adongo, defensive backs Sheldon Price and Cassius Vaughn, tight end Weslye Saunders and offensive linemen Khaled Holmes and Joe Reitz.
