The Jets signed Colbert to their active roster Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Colbert has been elevated from the practice squad before each game this season and has registered eight total tackles. The Jets will keep him permanently on their active roster as they are currently dealing with a litany of injuries to their secondary.
Colbert was released by the Patriots on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. If Colbert had made the Patriots roster, it would have marked his third team in the last three seasons. The 26-year-old will try to find a home elsewhere for the 2021 campaign.
Colbert inked a contract with the Patriots on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 27-year-old spent last season with the Giants, as he supplied 22 tackles (16 solo) across six games in an injury-plagued campaign. Colbert will likely handle a reserve safety role for the Patriots behind Devin McCourty and Jalen Mills should he make the roster.
Colbert (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve by the Giants on Saturday, Michael Elsen of the team's official site reports. The 27-year-old landed on injured reserve in early November but is now ready to retake the field for the first time since Week 5. Colbert should fill a reserve role at safety behind starters Logan Ryan and Jabrill Peppers.
Colbert (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Colbert is set to miss a third straight game, but he's making progress in his recovery. The fourth-year safety stayed on the practice field all week as a limited participant, which bodes well for his chances of returning for the Week 9 matchup against Washington. Julian Love has seen the biggest uptick in snaps with Colbert out of the lineup and should continue to handle that workload Monday.
