In his two years, he has totaled 51 catches for 753 yards and three touchdowns.

New England needed more depth at wide receiver after Julian Edelman suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the first quarter of a preseason game against the Detroit Lions on August 25.

At first glance though, the biggest cuts not previously leaked for the Colts appear to be former starting nose tackle David Parry-who started all 32 games for the defense over the past two seasons, and rotational interior defensive lineman T.Y.

Dorsett was a 2015 first-round draft choice of the Colts (29th overall).

The Colts are expected to take Luck off the physically unable to perform list prior to Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline for rosters to be cut to 53.

Jacoby Brissett was traded by the Patriots to the Colts on Saturday afternoon. Coming on the heels of the acquisition of Cincinnati linebacker Marquis Flowers for similar duties, it indicated that the team was prepared to part company with some of their special-teams standbys while looking to upgrade.

Then the Patriots executed their fifth trade of the week and third of the day, sending the seventh-round draft pick they received earlier for cornerback Justin Coleman back to the Seattle Seahawks, along with a fifth-rounder, for defensive end Cassius Marsh.

There have been many National Football League trades this preseason, and most are roughly the same: a player who was on the roster bubble being shipped for a mid- or late-round pick. They also are exceptionally deep at receiver, especially since undrafted rookie Austin Carr impressed in camp and the preseason.

The Patriots and Colts are both dealing with significant injuries to start the year.

Receiver Julian Edelman, cornerback Cyrus Jones, and third-round draft pick Derek Rivers were all placed in injured reserve.
