The NFL has suspended Giants linebacker Victor Butler for the first four games of the 2015 season, reports ESPN.com. Butler's suspension is for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Butler is a six-year veteran. He appeared in two games for the Colts during the 2014 season and totaled two tackles. Butler signed with the Giants in January.
The Colts have waived Victor Butler and claimed fellow inside linebacker Shaun Phillips off waivers from the Titans. Butler was re-signed Monday after losing his roster spot six days earlier.
The Colts announced they re-signed linebacker Victor Butler and waived defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles Monday. After recording three tackles over two games for the Colts this season, Butler was waived Nov. 18. Quarles has played in one game this season and notched one sack.
With Ahmad Bradshaw officially on the injured reserve list, the Colts signed kick returner/wide receiver Josh Cribbs and waived outside linebacker Victor Butler on Tuesday, per the team's official website. The team also signed running back Michael Hill to the practice squad and released Eric Thomas.
The Colts have listed the collowing players as inactive for Sunday night's matchup with the Patriots: linebackers Henoc Muamba (toe) and Victor Butler (hamstring), defensive linemen Arthur Jones (ankle) and Kelcy Quarles, guard Lance Louis, center Khaled Holmes and offensive tackle Xavier Nixon. Jones had already been ruled out on the Friday injury report, while Muamba and Butler were two of the team's four linebackers to be listed as probable. Linebackers Josh McNary (ankle) and Erik Walden (quad) are active after earning probable tags, as is Reggie Wayne, who was on the injury report with a non-injury-related issue. Also active is offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus, who was listed as questionable to play with a groin injury.
