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).
