The Indianapolis Colts have claimed defensive end Simeon Rice off waivers, expecting him to fill in for injured Pro Bowler Dwight Freeney.
Rice played one season for Colts coach Tony Dungy in Tampa Bay. He signed a one-year, 3-million-dollar contract with the Denver Broncos on September 3rd, but was released on Friday.
Colts president Bill Polian says Freeney could miss four or more games because of a left foot injury during Sunday night's 23-21 loss at San Diego.
The Colts have not yet released details of the injury.
Indianapolis signed Freeney to a six-year deal in July, paying an average of 12 million dollars.
He has 32 tackles and three-and-a-half sacks on the season.
