Travis (knee) signed a one-year contract extension with the Colts on Tuesday.
With 21 NFL appearances and 10 career receptions to his name, Travis was on the roster bubble for Indianapolis before he suffered a torn ACL in the final week of the 2018 preseason. He should have enough time to get healthy for the start of training camp, at which point he'll compete for a spot behind Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle (hip/kidney) at tight end. Travis will duke it out with Mo Alie-Cox and Billy Brown, among others.

Travis went down in last week's preseason finale and has since been placed on injured reserve, where the tight end will likely remain for through the end of the 2018 campaign.
The Colts placed Travis (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Travis was going to have trouble making the squad anyway, as the team had four tight ends on the roster. The third-year pro has 10 receptions for 91 yards and zero touchdowns through 21 NFL games.
Travis suffered an injury to his right knee in Thursday's preseason game, CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.

Travis led the team with five targets Monday, but he was only able to bring in three and did most of his work on a single catch that went for 22 yards.

Travis saw increased playing time on offense (10 snaps) with Brandon Williams suffering a concussion. It's possible he could be given a larger role in the offense for the balance of the season, due both to Williams' injury and the fact he's likely to have increased his knowledge of the playbook since joining the Colts in late November.
Travis was claimed off waivers by the Colts on Tuesday.
It didn't take long for Travis to find a new home after being waived by the Chiefs on Monday. The 24-year-old played in all 11 games for the Chiefs this season, including three starts, recording five receptions for 43 yards. Travis isn't expected to see major offensive reps this Sunday with his new team, as he is one of five tight ends on the Colts' active roster.

Travis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt with the Titans, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.
