Eric Ebron's 2019 campaign is over.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Indianapolis Colts are placing Ebron on injured reserve as the tight end is set to undergo surgery on both ankles. The veteran tight end first popped up on the Colts' injury report with ankle injuries during Week 9. The Colts later officially placed Ebron on IR.

Ebron was listed as questionable heading into Week 12's matchup against the Houston Texans. He suited up, totaling four catches for 44 yards.

Ebron's sixth season prematurely ends with 31 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns. The 26-year-old entered 2019 coming off a year where he posted career-high totals of 66 receptions, 750 yards and 13 TDs, which was his first season in Indianapolis after landing there via free agency.

Colts coach Frank Reich also said running back Marlon Mack will not play again this week. Mack fractured his hand in Week 11.

"I need to be smart. If I'm not, then surgery will need to be done," Conner said. "I had a minor setback vs. Cleveland [in Week 11]. It's killing me not being out there. The ligaments need to get stronger." Conner has been dealing with the injury for a few weeks; it also sidelined him in Weeks 9 and 10.
