Indianapolis promotes WR Whalen to active roster

AP - Sports

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Colts promoted receiver Griff Whalen from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday.

Whalen has played in six games this season and has nine receptions for 102 yards. He should help a depleted receiving corps that has been without perennial Pro Bowler Reggie Wayne since Oct. 20. Backup receiver LaVon Brazill is questionable this week with a foot injury.

Whalen played with Andrew Luck at Stanford and originally signed with Indy (8-5) as an undrafted rookie. He spent last year on injured reserve. This year, he has bounced between active and inactive and from the practice squad to the active roster.

To make room for Whalen, the Colts waived backup cornerback Jalil Brown.

Indianapolis, the AFC South champs, host Houston (2-11) on Sunday.
