Day was waived by the Colts on Tuesday. The 26-year-old spent the first month of the season on injured reserve with a knee injury before returning in mid-October, but he's now been let go by Indianapolis. Day appeared in four games and totaled two tackles in 62 defensive snaps.
Day (knee) is set to return to practice Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. Day's return to practice kicks off a 21-day window for the Colts to evaluate whether to add him to the active roster or let him revert back to IR for the rest of the year. He's recovering from a minor knee procedure undergone late August.
Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Day (knee) will return to practice this week, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. The 26-year-old underwent a minor knee procedure in late August and was placed on injured reserve before Week 1, but he'll retake the practice field this week. Day is eligible to be activated after spending the three-week minimum on injured reserve, but he may not be ready to return Week 4.
Day agreed Wednesday with the Colts on a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Day kicked off the 2019 campaign as a backup in San Francisco, but he was thrust into a starting role Week 11 following a season-ending injury to D.J. Jones (ankle) and performed admirably in that role. He'll provide the Colts with depth at defensive tackle.
