Colts' Rolan Milligan: Opting out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan informed the Colts on Wednesday that he will opt out of the 2020 season, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Prior to announcing his decision, Milligan looked primed to play a depth and special-teams role for Indianapolis. He'll instead rejoin the team next year.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Back with Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (foot) signed a one-year contract with Indianapolis on Saturday.

Milligan suited up in 11 games with the Colts in 2019 before he was placed on injured reserve following Week 15 with a foot injury. The 25-year-old played a depth role last season, logging 15 tackles (11 solo) on defense and special teams. He'll likely assume that same role for the team heading into the 2020 season.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Milligan was injured during Monday's loss to the Saints, and the Colts have opted to shut down the safety for the rest of the year. The 25-year-old played in 11 games for the Colts this season, registering 15 tackles while playing mostly on special teams.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Done for night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (foot) was ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against New Orleans, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

It's unclear how Milligan suffered the injury, but the fact that he was immediately ruled out for the game is cause for concern. In his stead, look for Khari Willis and George Odum to receive an uptick in depth safety snaps.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Returns from knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (knee) isn't listed on the Wednesday's injury report.

Milligan sat out the Week 5 win over Kansas City due to the knee issue but is now healthy after the bye week. The 25-year-old has primarily played special teams in his two games with the Colts.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Can't shake injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.

Milligan will miss his second game of the season. He mainly works on special teams, although he likely would've had a shot on defense in this outing since starting safeties Clayton Geathers (concussion) and Malik Hooker (knee) are both inactive as well. Khari Willis and George Odum are the only two healthy safeties on the Colts' roster.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan landed on the Colts' injury report as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a knee injury.

Milligan presumably suffered the injury at practice, because he just showed up on the injury report Friday. With both starting safeties already ruled out his availability will be significant for the Colts' secondary depth.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Receives promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was elevated to the Colts' 53-man roster Wednesday.

The promotion of Milligan gives the Colts added depth in the defensive backfield, but he isn't worthy of IDP consideration at this stage of his career because of how little he has played since entering the league back in 2016. The 25-year-old has yet to play a snap of regular-season football in his NFL career.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Receives promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was signed to the Colts' active roster Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

Milligan is getting a promotion from the practice squad in order to provide Indianapolis with more depth at safety in the wake of Mike Mitchell's (calf) placement on injured reserve. However, the third-year Toledo product is unlikely to see enough playing time to be worthy of IDP consideration.

Rolan Milligan: Given heave-ho by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was waived by the Colts on Friday.

Milligan was promoted from the Colts' practice squad to the active roster last Saturday and was not active for last week's win over the Giants. The 24-year-old will likely have to wait until 2019 to try and make his NFL debut, with the regular season finishing up Sunday.

Colts' Rolan Milligan: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts promoted Milligan to the 53-man roster Saturday.

Milligan didn't secure a 53-man spot out of the preseason, but he will provide some depth in the secondary with a number safeties injured for the contest. Should he take the field Sunday, it would mark the first time in his career he's appeared in a game.

Lions' Rolan Milligan: Leaves game with chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan left Thursday's game against the Browns with a chest injury and will not return, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Milligan is currently sitting as a depth option on the Lions' safety depth chart, and he may be on the outside looking in for a roster spot. He will hope the injury is not serious in order to have a chance at making Detroit's 53-man squad.

Rolan Milligan: Cut loose by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

Milligan joined the Lions in late November after an injury to safety Tavon Wilson (shoulder), and did not see game action. The move creates room for the return of offensive lineman Joe Dahl (lower leg) from injured reserve.

Rolan Milligan: Signs with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions signed Milligan off their practice squad Monday.

Milligan was added to the 53-man roster after fellow safety Tavon Wilson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve. It's expected that Milligan will work in a depth role along with Don Carey and Charles Washington, as Miles Killebrew is the top candidate to earn an appointment into the starting lineup in Wilson's stead.

Rolan Milligan: Waived by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was waived by the Lions on Saturday, WXYZ Detroit reports.

Milligan tried his hand to make it as a depth safety with the Lions, but it's obvious the team is going in a different direction. Should he clear waivers, Milligan could be signed to the practice squad.

Lions' Rolan Milligan: Activated from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mulligan (undisclosed) was activated from the Lions' Physically Unable to Perform list Monday.

Milligan landed on the PUP list to begin training camp after sitting out the entire 2016 season with a serious injury. It appears the safety is back to full strength, but he'll still need to prove healthy and effective in training camp in order to earn a spot on the Lions' final roster.

Lions' Rolan Milligan: Receives PUP label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan (undisclosed) has been placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

After sitting out the entire 2016 season with a serious injury, Milligan will be entering training camp without any NFL snaps. It is uncertain when Milligan will return, but he will have an uphill battle to gain defensive snaps, so expect that he will be mainly designated with special teams duties once healthy.

Lions' Rolan Milligan: Signs contract with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan signed a contract with the Lions on Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.

Milligan was an undrafted free agent at the start of least season and after latching on with the Cowboys, ended up suffering a severe injury that cost him the rest of the 2016 campaign. He was waived with an injury settlement and after taking the long road to recovery, he's finally healthy enough to sign with a new team. He'll join the Lions for the offseason, but there's no guarantee he makes the final roster.

Rolan Milligan: Waived by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milligan was waived/injured by the Cowboys on Thursday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Milligan's injury was never disclosed, so it's unclear how severe it was and how long he was expected to be out. His release leaves the team with five safeties, of whom Kavon Frazier and Jeff Heath are most likely to see an increase in reps with Milligan gone. Milligan will be eligible for the Cowboy's IR if he clears waivers.
