Muhammad (neck) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Colts, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Muhammad went from no practice throughout the week, to full practice Saturday, indicating he's made a full recovery from the neck injury he suffered last week against Atlanta. Now that he's suiting up in Week 4's action, he'll resume his usual depth role on the Colts' defensive line.
Muhammad (undisclosed) returned to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Muhammad was dealing with a stinger late in the second quarter but, as evidenced by this news, shook off the injury following the halftime break. Now that he's back, expect the Miami product to resume his role as a starting defensive end.
Muhammad suffered a stinger and is questionable to return Sunday's game against the Falcons, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
It's unclear how the 2017 sixth-round pick suffered the injury, but it's serious enough for him to miss time. He was making his second consecutive start for the injured Jabaal Sheard, so Ben Bangou is the leading candidate to get a boost in snaps at defensive end.
Muhammad is expected to continue to get the start at defensive end with Jabaal Sheard (knee) sidelined, Mike Wells of ESPN reports.
Muhammad has been solid thus far this season filling in for the injured Sheard, making six solo tackles, one sack and a forced fumble. The 24-year-old will get a solid matchup against a Falcons' offensive line that is banged up, looking to pick up his second career sack.
Muhammad had two total tackles, a sack and a QB hit in Sunday's loss at the Chargers. Muhammad started at defensive right end with Jabaal Sheard injured and played on 39 of the defense's 63 snaps.
It was the first sack of his career. It looks like he'll be a steady part of the defensive line rotation even when Sheard returns, after a 2018 season that saw Muhammad released and re-signed by the Colts in midseason.
The Colts called Muhammad back up to their 53-man roster Saturday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.
Muhammad will start his second stint with the Colts this season in Sunday's game against the Jets. With Margus Hunt (knee) out for the contest, Muhammad could see some work right away providing depth at defensive end.
Muhammad was waived by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Muhammad signed with Indianapolis after spending the offseason in New Orleans but ultimately failed to stick with the team. The second-year defensive lineman will look for a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Muhammad had one tackle and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He played 19 of the defense's 56 snaps.
Muhammad logged the seventh-highest playing time among defensive lineman Sunday, putting him in a small reserve role.
Muhammad is inactive due to coach's decision for the Saints Week 2 matchup with the Patriots, Scott DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.
Muhammad is little more than a backup lineman for New Orleans. He didn't see any run on defense in Week 1 and was on the field for just five special teams snaps. His absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the team.
The Saints selected Muhammad in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 196th overall.
Muhammad (6-foot-3, 253 pounds) is an edge defender who showed promise early in his Miami (FL) career before character issues derailed his college career. He was dismissed from the team for the 2016 season and didn't play elsewhere, which may have contributed to his disappointing workout numbers (4.88-second 40-yard dash).
