Indianapolis Colts running back D’Onta Foreman was placed on injured reserve on Monday due to a torn biceps.

The team signed running back Charcandrick West to fill the vacancy.

Foreman was recently claimed off waivers from the Houston Texans. He had one carry for minus-1 yard and caught one pass for six yards in Saturday’s 21-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Foreman, 23, rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games as a rookie for the Texans in 2017 before suffering a torn Achilles tendon. He returned to see action in just one game last season, carrying the ball seven times for minus-1 yard.

West, 28, has rushed for 998 yards and seven touchdowns and caught 77 passes for 589 yards and six scores in 52 games (11 starts) over five seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Indianapolis also signed free agent safety Kai Nacua, undrafted free agent running back Marquis Young, waived safety Derrick Kindred and placed receiver Daurice Fountain (ankle) on injured reserve.

Nacua, 24, had 13 tackles in 16 games (three starts) for the Browns in 2017 and spent time last season on the practice squads of the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers.

Young, 24, was a college star at Massachusetts and rushed for 3,631 yards and 29 touchdowns, caught 98 passes for 671 yards and two scores and also scored on a kickoff return.

Kindred, 25, was claimed off waivers by the Colts in April. He played in 42 games (17 starts) over three seasons with the Browns and had 137 tackles and two interceptions.

Fountain, 23, played in one game last season after being a fifth-round draft choice by the Colts.
