Re­port: Colts meet with QB Osweiler

The Morning Call - - SPORTS -

Less than a week af­ter An­drew Luck’s abrupt re­tire­ment, the Colts ap­par­ently brought in another quar­ter­back from the 2012 draft class for a visit.

Osweiler, 29, met with the Colts on Tues­day, ESPN re­ported. The club is look­ing for a vet­eran be­hind Ja­coby Bris­sett, who is ex­pected to be the new starter. In­di­anapo­lis cur­rently has Phillip Walker and Chad Kelly back­ing up Bris­sett.

Walker has never ap­peared in a reg­u­lar-sea­son game and Kelly faces a two-game sus­pen­sion for vi­o­lat­ing the league’s per­sonal con­duct pol­icy.

Osweiler was picked by the Broncos in the sec­ond round in 2012, and has played with the Tex­ans and Dol­phins. Luck, who re­tired last Satur­day, was taken first over­all in 2012.

Hunt must stay away: Browns RB Ka­reem Hunt will not be al­lowed at the team’s fa­cil­ity while serv­ing an eightgame sus­pen­sion for off-field in­ci­dents, in­clud­ing a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion in which he punched and kicked a woman.

Hunt’s ban at the Browns’ fa­cil­ity starts at 4 p.m. Satur­day when teams must sub­mit their 53-man ros­ters. Hunt was sus­pended by the league in March.

Hunt, 24, was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2017 and led the league with 1,327 rush­ing yards while scor­ing eight TDs as a rookie. He was re­leased by the club last Novem­ber af­ter video of the in­ci­dent in­volv­ing a woman was re­leased by TMZ.

The Browns signed Hunt in Fe­bru­ary.

Set­back for McK­in­non: 49ers RB Jer­ick McK­in­non has had another set­back while he tries to come back from a knee in­jury.

Gen­eral man­ager John Lynch told a San Fran­cisco ra­dio sta­tion that McK­in­non’s re­turn to prac­tice on Tues­day was “not en­cour­ag­ing.”

McK­in­non, 27, signed a four-year, $30 mil­lion free-agent deal with the 49ers in March 2018, but tore an ACL one week be­fore the start of the reg­u­lar sea­son.

The Ge­or­gia South­ern prod­uct played the pre­vi­ous four sea­sons with the Vik­ings.

Butt hav­ing more surgery: Broncos TE Jake Butt will have arthro­scopic surgery on his trou­ble­some left knee but may still miss the 2019 sea­son.

Butt, 24, ap­peared in three games with the Broncos in 2018 be­fore tear­ing his left ACL in prac­tice.

He tore his right ACL as a sopho­more with Michi­gan and again as a se­nior in 2017, which re­sulted him miss­ing his rookie sea­son with the Broncos.

Hauschka stay­ing: The Bills signed K Stephen Hauschka to a two-year con­tract ex­ten­sion through the 2021 sea­son.

Hauschka, 34 and head­ing into his 12th sea­son, is sev­enth on the NFL’s all-time list with 86.4 per­cent of field goals made.
