Ross Travis: Won't play in finale

Travis (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Travis was claimed off waivers from the Colts on Saturday, so it's confusing why he was scooped with no plans of playing in the Jets' finale. However, the Jets may have liked what they saw out of the 26-year-old Travis over three games with the Colts this season, so they could be trying to keep him with the franchise through the offseason program.

Ross Travis: Plucked off waivers

The Jets claimed Travis off waivers from the Colts on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Travis played three games with the Colts -- his first NFL action since 2017 -- and caught four of six targets for 51 yards. With Ryan Griffin (ankle) on injured reserve, Travis will add depth in the tight-end room. This will work as a tryout for Travis heading into the 2020 season.

Ross Travis: Hits waivers

The Colts cut Travis on Friday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old had suited up in three of the last four contests for the Colts, hauling in four of six targets for 51 yards. With Week 17 on the horizon, it's likely that Travis will have to wait until 2020 to latch on with another roster.

Ross Travis: Just one reception Sunday

Travis had just one reception for one yard on his only target in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay.

Analysis: A week after he had his first two receptions of the season. Travis had a much smaller role and played just five snaps. It doesn't look like Mo Alie-Cox (16 snaps) or Travis will be big factors in the passing game even with Eric Ebron on IR with an ankle injury and several other wide receivers sidelined.

Ross Travis: Two receptions Sunday

Travis had two receptions for 31 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: It's notable that Travis got the start at TE in a two-TE formation over Mo Alie-Cox. While he played on just 12 snaps compared to Mo Alie-Cox's 15 snaps, Travis went out for a pass on 12 snaps compared to three for Alie-Cox. Travis could continue to get a few targets per game if Chester Rogers, T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell all remain out with injuries.

Ross Travis: Rejoins Indianapolis

The Colts signed Travis to a contract Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Travis rejoins Indianapolis' roster with Eric Ebron (ankle) set to be placed on injured reserve. He'll provide depth at the tight end position behind Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox. Travis appeared in four games with the Colts in 2017, hauling in two of five targets for 33 yards, and he missed the 2018 season with a knee injury.

Ross Travis: Returns with TD catch

Travis (hamstring) had one reception for a 24-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

Analysis: It was Ross' first game since suffering a torn ACL in the final week of the 2018 preseason. His return had been delayed by missing the first preseason game due to a hamstring injury. While Ross looks fully healthy, he still faces an uphill battle to secure a roster spot behind Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox.

Ross Travis: Out for first preseason game

Travis (hamstring) won't dress for Thursday's preseason game against the Bills.

Analysis: Travis has been dealing with a hamstring injury during training camp, and won't see action Thursday. The Penn State product is fairly buried on the depth chart currently, so his absence won't be a notable one. With Travis sidelined, Gabe Holmes and Mo Alie-Cox should receive the bulk of the reps during Thursday's game.

Ross Travis: Nursing hamstring

Travis was sidelined for Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Travis missed the entire 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL in the final week of the preseason. His absence from practice is notable, as he is far from having a roster spot locked up. He currently sits behind Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox on a relatively deep tight end depth chart. A quick recovery will be advantageous for his chances to to make an impression at camp.

Ross Travis: Returns to full practice

Travis (knee) full participated in practice on the first day of training camp Thursday, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Travis suffered a torn ACL in the final week of the 2018 preseason. It looks like he's back to full strength, but he'll have a hard time finding playing time or even a roster spot behind a deep tight end corps that includes Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox.

Ross Travis: Staying with Indy

Travis (knee) signed a one-year contract extension with the Colts on Tuesday.

Analysis: With 21 NFL appearances and 10 career receptions to his name, Travis was on the roster bubble for Indianapolis before he suffered a torn ACL in the final week of the 2018 preseason. He should have enough time to get healthy for the start of training camp, at which point he'll compete for a spot behind Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle (hip/kidney) at tight end. Travis will duke it out with Mo Alie-Cox and Billy Brown, among others.

Ross Travis: Dealing with torn ACL

Travis is dealing with a torn ACL, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Travis went down in last week's preseason finale and has since been placed on injured reserve, where the tight end will likely remain for through the end of the 2018 campaign.

Ross Travis: Shifts to IR

The Colts placed Travis (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Travis was going to have trouble making the squad anyway, as the team had four tight ends on the roster. The third-year pro has 10 receptions for 91 yards and zero touchdowns through 21 NFL games.

Ross Travis: Hurts right knee

Travis suffered an injury to his right knee in Thursday's preseason game, CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: The Colts were going to have a hard time keeping four tight ends, so Travis' injury may land him on IR or cause him to be released.

Ross Travis: Leads team in targets Monday

Travis hauled in three catches for 29 yards in Monday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Analysis: Travis led the team with five targets Monday, but he was only able to bring in three and did most of his work on a single catch that went for 22 yards. Travis saw very limited action with the Colts last year and is fighting for a spot on the team's final roster as he enters the final season of his rookie contract.
