Year two with the Indianapolis Colts has come to an end for tight end Eric Ebron. After missing two practices last week with an ankle injury, Ebron is being placed on injury reserve.
Ebron recently suited up for Thursday night’s match-up against the Texans. Although he had missed two practices, the tight end still played and caught four passes for 44 yards. Still, his ankle had apparently been bothering him during the game. According to Ebron’s twitter, he has been dealing with this injury since the beginning of the season.

With Ebron set to be a free agent come the end of the 2019 season, he looks to be focused on recovering to full health before hitting the field again.
Ebron starred as a Pro-Bowl tight end in his first season with Colts last year. In 2018, he totaled 66 receptions for 750 yards. In addition, Ebron led all tight ends in receiving touchdowns with 13. As for his second year with the Colts, he has caught 31 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns.
Due to Ebron being placed on injury reserve, the Colts have signed Ross Travis to the active roster. In his 21 game career, Travis has only caught 10 passes for 21 yards. Although Travis was signed, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox will take the majority of snaps at the tight end position with Ebron out.
