Colts Sign Receiver Devin Street – Moncrief to Miss 4-6 Weeks with Injury
The Indianapolis Colts sign third year wide receiver Devin Street off the New England Patriots practice squad before the announcement that wide receiver Donte Moncrief will miss the next four to six weeks due to a fractured scapula suffered early in Sunday’s loss to Denver.
Moncrief underwent an MRI on Monday to determine the seriousness of the injury. The results of which the team kept close to the vest until Coach Chuck Pagano’s weekly press conference with reporters late Wednesday morning.
Pagano shares that Donte Moncrief has a fractured scapula. He will be out 4-6 weeks.

Despite the diagnois, Moncrief kept his thoughts positive on Twitter ahead of the official announcement.
Staying the course… Just a bump in the road.

Street started his career as a fifth round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2014, appearing in all 16 games his rookie year, but only recording two catches for 18 yards. He saw action in 15 games last season with the Cowboys, hauling in a total of seven catches for 113 yards and one touchdown. He was cut by Dallas after the preseason during final roster cuts, and signed to the Patriots practice squad shortly thereafter.
One would expect Street to serve more as depth at the position behind T.Y. Hilton, Phillip Dorsett, Quan Bray, and Chester Rogers, then as a player the team can plug in right away. Chances are, once Moncrief is healthy enough to play, Street will more than likely be, pardon the pun, “on the street.”
