The Colts made a flurry of roster moves Wednesday, including placing DT Eric Foster on injured reserved following his gruesome ankle injury suffered Monday night against the Buccaneers.

LB Nate Triplett was waived and OG Ben Ijalana was also placed on injured reserved.

Additionally, OG Jaimie Thomas, who is already on injured reserved, was suspended for four games for violation of the steroid policy.

To replace Foster, Triplett and Ijalana on the roster, the Colts signed OTs Michael Toudouze and Quinn Ojinnaka, and promoted DT Ricardo Mathews from the practice squad to the active roster.

The way wesee it

It was busy in Indianapolis on Wednesday morning, as the Colts continue to deal with injuries across the roster. They are in need of depth along both lines and these moves reflect that.
