Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he would be "shocked" if DE Kendall Langford (knee surgery) did not play Week 1.

This matches what Pagano has said since Langford underwent a knee scope in early August. With Henry Anderson (knee) expected to miss, getting Langford back will be a big boost. Langford has never sat out a game in his eight-year career.
Sep 6 - 8:51 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said DE Kendall Langford (knee surgery) is looking good for Week 1.

Langford was given a three-to-four week timetable after undergoing a knee scope at the beginning of August. Even the back-end of that projection would put him ready for the season opener. Langford has never missed a game in his eight-year career.
Aug 23 - 11:45 AM

Colts DE Kendall Langford is out three-to-four weeks after undergoing a knee scope.

Langford has never sat out a game during his eight-year career, but this injury puts him in danger of missing Week 1. With Arthur Jones suspended and Henry Anderson (knee) still on the active/PUP list, the Colts are extremely thin on the defensive line. They will likely look to bring in some help.
Aug 9 - 11:37 AM

Kendall Langford said he chose the Colts because he prefers playing in a 3-4 scheme.

He wouldn't have gotten that opportunity with the Lions, who were also pursuing Langford in free agency. Langford looked like a fish out of water playing defensive tackle in St. Louis. He's a much better fit at five technique. Langford hasn't received a positive grade from Pro Football Focus since 2010.

Colts signed DE Kendall Langford, formerly of the Rams, to a four-year, $17.2 million contract.

With Cory Redding contemplating retirement, Langford will be a candidate to start at five-technique end opposite Arthur Jones. Langford was an early-career beast at the "five" with the Dolphins, before struggling as a 4-3 defensive tackle in St. Louis. He's 29 years old.

The Broncos have arranged a visit with free agent DL Kendall Langford.

Langford would play five-technique end in new Broncos DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 after spending the last three seasons as a 4-3 tackle in St. Louis. 29-year-old Langford began his career as a 3-4 defensive end with the Dolphins.

The Colts recently met with free agent DT Kendall Langford.

Langford would play defensive end in Indy's 3-4. The 29-year-old has also visited the Lions and Jets, and spent this weekend meeting with Saints brass.

Free agent DL Kendall Langford is scheduled to visit the Jets and Saints.

The Jets are up first after Langford visited the Lions earlier this week. In New York, Langford's former position coach with the Dolphins, Kacy Rodgers, is now the defensive coordinator under coach Todd Bowles, who also coached in Miami. Langford would be unlikely to start for either the Jets or Saints.

Free agent DT Kendall Langford is visiting the Lions Monday.

On the same day the Lions announced they won't use the franchise tag on Ndamukong Suh, they bring in Langford. Note that Nick Fairley is also a free agent. The 29-year-old Langford was released by the Rams last week, a move that saved them $6M in cap space. He had fallen behind stud Aaron Donald on the depth chart.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports the "door is open" for free agent Kendall Langford to return to the Rams at a reduced salary, but that he'll "seek a starting job first."

Langford was set to make $6 million, far too steep for the Rams after rookie sensation Aaron Donald took Langford's starting job last season. Langford has experience in both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes. He shouldn't hurt for suitors, but a starting job isn't a guarantee.

Rams released DT Kendall Langford.

The move clears $6 million in cap space. Signed to a four-year, $24 million deal in March 2012, Langford was a 16-game starter in 2012 and 2013, but was benched in favor of Aaron Donald last season. He played just 494 snaps, managing one sack. Still only 29, Langford has experience at defensive end. That versatility and relative youth should earn him some guaranteed money on the open market.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams are "making calls" about trading for Rams DT Kendall Langford.

Langford, 28, has been replaced in the starting lineup in St. Louis by first-round rookie Aaron Donald. He's never missed a game through seven seasons and is coming off a career-best 2013 that saw Langford rack up 49 tackles and five sacks. He has just eight tackles through six games this season.

Rams DT Kendall Langford was briefly forced from St. Louis' Week 3 visit to Chicago with a left shoulder injury.

Langford went down midway through the second half, but returned near the end of the fourth quarter. Although he's seen heavy snaps, Langford has just one tackle through St. Louis' first three games.

A defensive end in Miami's 3-4, Kendall Langford will transition to a three-technique tackle with the Rams.

"I don’t think it will be hard at all," he said. "We played a little over and under [in Miami]. I played some three-technique, so I think I’ll excel at it." Langford, 26, is viewed as an "ascending player" and received interest from several teams before signing in St. Louis. He will need to master leverage on the interior, because smaller guard and centers won't struggle to get underneath the 6-foot-6 Langford's pads if he comes out of his stance high.
