Morris (undisclosed) and the Colts' reached an injury settlement Tuesday, per the NFL media site's transaction report report.
Morris was though to be the leading candidate to win the nickel corner role with the Colts in training camp before landing on injured reserve. It is unclear what issue he is dealing with, but he will now be free to find a new opportunity once his health permits it.
Morris was placed on injured reserve Monday.
This is an unfortunate development, as Morris was thought to be the leading candidate to win the nickel corner role for the Colts. The only way he can come off IR is through an injury settlement or if the team designates him as one of its two players allowed to return to the active roster.
Morris played 12 games last season and even got a start at cornerback. He's a name to watch as he could have a large role in a secondary that's in flux.
Morris suffered a hip contusion earlier in the contest, but was able to return and he'll get plenty of snaps at cornerback moving forward.
Morris was in line for additional playing time as he started at cornerback, but he may be sidelined for the remaining of the contest if the hip issue is bothersome.
