Inman registered 12 receptions for 181 scoreless yards in 2019. Inman started the season with the Chargers and played four games before being cut and signing with Indianapolis, where he geared up in three outings. He'll turn 31 years old in late January, and he'll be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Inman caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Monday night's 34-7 loss to the Saints. Inman's output included a long catch of 22 yards, showing his familiarity with the Colts' offense after rejoining the team earlier in the week. Although he's just a depth option, Indy's rotating cast of receivers at least opens opportunities for those who remain healthy, potentially allowing Inman to carve out a little late-season value.
Inman (quadriceps) signed with the Colts on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Indianapolis' attrition at wide receiver led to bringing back Inman, who spent last season with the team. He worked out for the Colts ahead of Week 14 and should be able to get on the field rather quickly given his familiarity with the system. Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson project to be the top receivers in Week 15 if T.Y. Hilton (calf) remains out, but it would not be surprising if Inman is able to carve out a role.
The Colts worked out Inman (quadriceps) on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Inman had a nine-game stint with Indianapolis last season, reeling in 28 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns. The Colts may be inspecting his health to get a sense of whether he can help a banged-up receiving corps. Inman spent most of October and November on IR as he tended to a quad injury before the Chargers waived him Nov. 25, so he may find himself employed if he passes the requisite tests.
The Chargers waived Inman (quadriceps) off their injured reserve list Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Inman never really re-captured his old magic with the Chargers after he was signed by the team prior to the season. The 30-year-old suited up in just four games before getting hurt this year, hauling in eight of 13 targets for 132 yards. He'll be subject to waivers and can now be claimed by any team in the league.
