The Colts signed DB DaJuan Morgan and waived OL Joe Reitz on Wednesday.

The 6-0, 203-pound Morgan was drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft by the Chiefs. He has appeared in 28 career games, totaling 34 tackles.

Reitz, who was claimed off waivers from the Dolphins last week, spent the entire 2009 season on the Ravens' practice squad.

The way we see it

The Morgan signing comes on the heels of a report Tuesday that said SS Bob Sanders has torn a biceps tendon for the second season in a row. Sanders is getting a second opinion Wednesday from Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham. If Sanders is lost for the season, Morgan, a third-year player, becomes the most experienced backup at safety. DB Brandon King, the only other safety on the roster, made the club as an undrafted rookie out of Purdue.
