The Indianapolis Colts signed center Alex Mollette and placed offensive tackle Carter O’Donnell and wide receiver John Hurst on the injured reserve list, the team announced Tuesday.

O’Donnell left practice early on Saturday night and didn’t return. It isn’t clear what happened with Hurst, who signed with the team just before training camp started.

What is clear is that their season is over. Any player placed on the injured reserve list before roster cuts are not allowed to return unless they get waived with an injury settlement.

Mollette re-joins the Colts after being among the first wave of undrafted rookie free agents to sign with the team following the 2022 NFL draft.
