Colts down to 3 quarterbacks...Finger injury won’t sideline Taylor...Jets sign former KC running back West
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have signed cornerback Juante Baldwin and placed quarterback Brad Kaaya on the waived-injured list. Kaaya didn’t play in Monday night’s loss to Baltimore and missed practice yesterday with a back injury. If he clears waivers, he will revert to the injured reserve list. His absence leaves Indy with three quarterbacks available for tomorrow’s game against San Francisco — starter Andrew Luck, last year’s starter Jacoby Brissett and Phillip Walker, who spent last preseason with the Colts before he was released.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor isn’t expected to miss any time after dislocating his left pinky and bruising his hand in last night’s win over Philadelphia. Taylor appeared to hurt himself seriously when he landed awkwardly while falling out bounds in the first quarter. He immediately grabbed his non-throwing hand and ran to Cleveland’s sideline. He was treated in the locker room and returned to the game.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West. Today’s move came a few hours before the Jets’ preseason game against the Giants. West was waived by the Chiefs on Wednesday after four seasons in Kansas City. He gives the Jets seven running backs.
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Reserve Clemson defensive lineman Richard Yeargin has decided he longer wants to play football after recovering from a neck injury following a 2017 car accident. Yeargin was a steady backup who figured to see more playing time last fall. Instead, he missed the season due to the June accident.
NEW YORK (AP) — San Francisco Giants pitcher Derek Holland has apologized after a television interview during which he used a mock Asian accent. Holland made the racially insensitive joke during an appearance Wednesday on MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” as he appeared alongside Giants massage therapist Haro Ogawa. Holland told reporters he was “just trying to have some fun,” but apologized and called the incident “embarrassing.”
