Brent (knee) was waived with an injury settlement by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Brent suffered the knee injury in mid-August and was unable to play in the final two preseason games. The 25-year-old cleared waivers and was placed on injured reserve, but can now sign with another team due to the injury settlement.
Brent (knee) was waived/injured by the Colts on Saturday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic Indiana reports.
Brent played well in camp prior to his knee injury but he wasn't able to get back to the field for the team's final two preseason tilts. If he goes unclaimed through the waiver process he'll revert to the Colts' injured reserve.
Brent (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.
Brent suffered a knee injury on Aug. 18 that has now held him out of the Colts' past two preseason games. The third-year receiver is squarely on the roster bubble, and is at great risk of not making Indianapolis' 53-man squad if he can not get healthy and prove his ability. Look for Daurice Fountain and Cobi Hamilton to see additional looks if Brent is indeed out.
It's notable that Brent is listed ahead of fifth-round draft pick Reece Fountain. However, that could be just because he's a veteran. Brent, an undrafted free agent from Wake Forest, played five games with the Colts last season but didn't have a reception and just one target. He's a long shot to win a significant role this summer, but the No. 3 to No. 5 wide receiver roles are wide open.
Brent was brought in as a safety measure at wide receiver, as Donte Moncrief (groin) is questionable for the contest. Brent has been with the team since signing with the practice squad Oct. 24. Prior to that he spent time with the Seahawks and Raiders.
