The Colts waived Collins on Tuesday.
Collins elevated to the 53-man roster Saturday but was quickly subjected to waivers since the Colts signed Geneo Grissom to shore up the defensive line. If Collins clears waivers, he'll likely return to the Colts' practice squad.
Collins was promoted to the Colts' 53-man roster Saturday.
Collins joined the Colts' practice squad in mid-November as he was suspended for the first 10 games of the season. The 25-year-old has been suspended four times since being drafted during the second round in 2015, and has been a free agent since being released by Atlanta late in 2017. Collins receives a chance on an NFL roster for Week 17, though he is unlikely to play a significant defensive role with a playoff berth on the line.
Collins was signed to the Colts' practice squad Thursday.
The LSU product has played 24 games in the NFL, registering 48 tackles (45 solo) and two interceptions. Collins has already served a 10-game suspension he received in April, so he can be added to the 53-man roster at any point.
Collins has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2018 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
It isn't clear why Collins is being suspended, but it's worth noting that he's already been suspended three times for violating the league's drug policy. The 2015 second-rounder is currently a free agent.
