Fili Moala tears ACL, placed on Indianapolis Colts' IR

Indianapolis Colts defensive end Fili Moala's season ended before it even got started.

The team announced Wednesday it placed Moala on the injured reserve list.

Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

The defensive lineman partially tore his ACL after colliding with a teammate during OTAs and his knee buckled, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a source informed of the situation.

The tear occurred in Moala's right knee, the same knee injury he suffered in Nov. 2012.

The 28-year-old re-signed with the Colts this offseason as a rotational player.

Moala started six games in 2013 and earned the second-most snaps along the Colts' defensive front. He produced 1.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hurries, according to Pro Football Focus.

With the Colts adding Arthur Jones in the offseason -- who is expected to play multiple spots along the defensive line -- Moala's playing time likely was to decrease. However, on a thin Colts defense, every loss hurts.

The end to the latest Around The League Podcast is full of shock and awe.
