TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Indianapolis Colts cornerback Kelvin Hayden will miss three to four weeks after injuring his hamstring during practice Tuesday, coach Jim Caldwell said.
Hayden signed a five-year, $43 million contract during the offseason.
The Colts' other cornerback, Marlin Jackson, trimmed his workout Tuesday night because of tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee. He did finish practice.
The team also re-signed defensive end Josh Thomas, who has spent his NFL seasons with the Colts. To make roster room, the Colts released running back Walter Mendenhall.
