Colts Re-Sign Trey Sermon

The Indianapolis Colts re-signed running back Trey Sermon to an undisclosed deal on Thursday. Sermon will return to the Colts in 2024 after carrying the ball 35 times for 160 yards and no touchdowns while catching three passes for 13 yards in 14 games in his first season with the team in 2023. Right now, the 25-year-old former third-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2021 is next in line behind starter Jonathan Taylor after Zack Moss signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in free agency, but it's likely that the Colts will add to the position through either free agency or the upcoming NFL draft. In his three years in the NFL with the Niners, Eagles and Colts, Sermon has averaged 4.4 yards per carry on 78 rushing attempts for 346 yards and only one score in 25 games (two starts).

Trey Sermon Rushes For 88 Yards In Week 15 Win

Indianapolis Colts running back Trey Sermon was a helpful boost to Indy's offense after running back Zack Moss (arm) left the game with an injury and did not return. Sermon, who hadn't eclipsed five carries in a game this season, ran the ball 17 times for 88 yards in the team's 30-13 win over the Steelers. Second-year running back Tyler Goodson was involved as well, tallying 11 carries. Fantasy managers will want to closely assess both Moss' (arm) and running back Jonathan Taylor's (thumb) injury designations moving forward. Sermon would be worth a pickup if Moss (arm) and Taylor (thumb) are both ruled out of the team's Week 16 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Trey Sermon To Serve As No. 2 Back

Indianapolis Colts head coach Shane Steichen said that running back Trey Sermon will serve as the backup behind Zack Moss with Jonathan Taylor (thumb) set to miss two to three weeks with a thumb injury that requires surgery. Sermon was the No. 2 behind Moss earlier in the year when Taylor was still on the Physically Unable to Perform list for an ankle injury that required offseason surgery, but he didn't see more than six touches in a game as the No. 2. The 24-year-old former third-rounder has eight carries for 24 yards and has caught one pass for four yards in his nine games in Indy in 2023. Moss should be the bell-cow back for the Colts for as long as Taylor is sidelined, giving him clear RB2 upside in fantasy.

Trey Sermon Handles Six Touches In Colts Debut

Indianapolis Colts running back Trey Sermon rushed five times for 17 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards in the win over the Baltimore Ravens. It was a decent showing in his first game with the Colts, especially considering he was signed to the team's practice squad just five days before the game. That said, Zack Moss is the clear lead running back in Indianapolis, at least until Jonathan Taylor (ankle) returns as soon as Week 5. Sermon likely won't be a fantasy football factor this season.

Colts Sign Trey Sermon To The Practice Squad

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent running back Trey Sermon to their practice squad on Tuesday and waived offensive tackle Ryan Hayes in a corresponding move. Sermon injured his knee in training camp while with the Philadelphia Eagles and was subsequently waived from Injured Reserve. He's likely past his injury, but only time will tell if the Colts will give him a chance on the active roster with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and rookie Evan Hull (knee) on Injured Reserve. The former third-round pick in 2021 made just two appearances with Philly last year and had two carries for 19 yards. For now, he'll just be serving as RB depth in Indy behind Zack Moss, Deon Jackson and Jake Funk.

Trey Sermon Released By Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are releasing running back Trey Sermon ahead of the 53-man roster cutdown deadline on Tuesday. Sermon had his moments this offseason, but couldn't hold onto a roster spot in a crowded running back room consisting of Rashaad Penny, D'Andre Swift, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott. The 2021 third-round pick didn't last long with the San Francisco 49ers and handled just two carries for 19 yards last season with the Eagles. His future in the NFL and as a fantasy asset is looking as bleak as ever. That said, a flurry of running back injuries around the league could spring him into action at some point.

Trey Sermon Scores For The Third Week In A Row

Philadelphia Eagles running back Trey Sermon took 16 carries for 30 yards and a touchdown while adding four receptions on six targets for an additional 24 yards during the team's 27-13 preseason loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The 24-year-old and Kennedy Brooks were the only running backs to log a carry Thursday night. Sermon didn't have a great outing. He was met at the line of scrimmage multiple times as the Eagles offensive line struggled to fend off the Indianapolis defenders, but he did find the end zone for the third week in a row. Fighting with Boston Scott for a roster spot, Sermon has put together a solid preseason backed by strong performances inside the red zone. If cut, Philadelphia will do all they can to stash the former 49er on their practice squad, but it would not be shocking to see a team scoop him up off of waivers.

Trey Sermon Scores For Second Week In A Row

Philadelphia Eagles running back Trey Sermon took five carries for 54 yards, scored a touchdown, and added a 14-yard reception during the team's 18-18 preseason tie with the Cleveland Browns. The 24-year-old fumbled on the catch-and-run deep into the second quarter but made up for it with his play during the second half. He burst up the field and evaded defenders during the third quarter's first drive for a 33-yard touchdown run. The fumble will do him no favors in making the final 53-man roster. However, it has been the lone blemish on what has been a solid preseason for the former 49er. Veteran Boston Scott has recorded only one touch all preseason and went backward one yard with it. These two seem to be in a dogfight for the final spot in the running back room, and it will be something to monitor next Thursday when the Eagles face the Colts.
