Colts waive receiver Trey Griffey off injured reserve

Wide receiver Trey Griffey's stint in Indianapolis appears to be over before it ever had a chance to get started.

The Colts reached an injury settlement with the son of baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. on Friday, waiving him from the injured reserved list. Griffey cleared waivers Monday and is a free agent.

Indianapolis signed Griffey after he went undrafted in April out of the University of Arizona. Just over two months later, Griffey finds himself a free agent once more.

Griffey played a full season just twice in his four years catching passes at the University of Arizona. The best of those years came as a sophomore in 2014, when Griffey caught 31 passes for 405 yards and one touchdown.

Injuries prevented him from having the college career he wanted, and they might prevent him from cementing a legacy as a pro the way his father did in Major League Baseball.
