KJ Brent: Let go by Tampa Bay

The Buccaneers waived Brent (undisclosed) from their injured reserve list Wednesday per the NFL's official transaction page.

KJ Brent: Lands on IR

Brent (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to Tampa Bay's injured reserve Sunday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

Analysis: It's unclear what type of injury Brent is dealing with, but it's clearly serious enough to land him on injured reserve. The 26-year-old hasn't seen regular-season action since 2017, when he appeared in five games for Indianapolis but was unable to record any statistics.

Brent is not expected to play in Friday's preseason tilt against the Dolphins, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

KJ Brent: Signs future deal with Bucs

Brent signed a reserve/future contract with Tampa Bay on Monday.

Analysis: Brent spent time with the Bucs' and Colts' practice squads this season, but he was never elevated to the active roster. The third-year pro suited up in five games for the Colts last year, and he failed to haul in his only target. Brent will vie for a depth spot with the Bucs, who will likely be moving on from DeSean Jackson (Achilles) during the offseason.

KJ Brent: Signs with Bucs practice squad

Brent signed to the Buccaneers practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old wideout spent time with the Colts' practice squad earlier this season, and he'd also worked out for the Packers in mid-November. With a solid 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame, the Bucs likely view Brent as an intriguing prospect that they'll hope to begin developing over the balance of the regular season and into the offseason.

KJ Brent: Working out for Green Bay

Brent (knee) is working out for the Packers on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Brent appears to have fully recovered from the knee injury that landed him on Indianapolis' injured reserve in September. If the 25-year-old is able to earn a depth role in Green Bay, he would be unlikely to serve as more than a special-teams contributor.

KJ Brent: Not playing Saturday

Brent (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Brent suffered a knee injury on Aug. 18 that has now held him out of the Colts' past two preseason games. The third-year receiver is squarely on the roster bubble, and is at great risk of not making Indianapolis' 53-man squad if he can not get healthy and prove his ability. Look for Daurice Fountain and Cobi Hamilton to see additional looks with Brent out.

KJ Brent: Continues strong preseason

Brent had two receptions for 18 yards on three targets in Thursday's preseason win at Seattle.

Analysis: Brent has drawn praise in training camp for his performance and it looks like he has the inside track on winning a final spot on the roster as a reserve roster. He got playing time with the second-team offense during the game, which shows he could have a shot a the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver role.
