Seidman Heads to Injured Reserve
Earlier today, Mike Chappel at indystar.com reported that Seidman was getting a magnetic resonance imaging test to determine the extent of the damage to his knee. Seidman suffered the injury earlier this week, but it's not the first time he's had knee problems. Last October, he was sidelined with a knee injury while playing for the Carolina Panthers. But we haven't yet been able to confirm if there's any connection between the two injuries.
When a player is placed on the injured reserve list during training camp, he's finished for the season unless one of two scenarios unfold: if he's subsequently released he can play for another team, or if he reaches an injury settlement -- like WR Michael DePriest did with the team this week -- the player can return to the same club after the tenth week of the season.
Seidman was entering his fifth year in the league out of UCLA. He's started in 15 games over his last four years in Carolina, but appeared in 43 games. He has just 18 career catches for 158 yards and 2 touchdowns.
With the loss of Seidman, the Colts have Dallas Clark, Ben Utecht, Bryan Fletcher and rookies Gijon Robinson and Jonny Harline at the tight end position. Earlier this week they released former Harvard tight end Matt Farbotko.
