Colts placed DE Kendall Langford (knee) on injured reserve.
His season is over. Langford bravely battled back from an August knee scope to play Week 1, but he was not the same player. The Colts eventually shut him down after Week 7, and now they are sidelining him for the rest of the season. It is possible he will need another surgery. Langford had been incredibly durable before this season, playing every game of his eight-year career. Despite the injury-driven downturn this year, Langford should be brought back at his $4 million salary next season. Sat, Nov 19, 2016 02:07:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team will shut down DE Kendall Langford "for a little bit."

Langford hurried back from a preseason knee scope and has not been the same player through seven games. The defender will sit out this week -- his first miss in 135 career games -- and looks likely to be sidelined for several weeks. Already bad against the run, the Colts will also be without DE Henry Anderson (knee) on Sunday.

Colts DE Kendall Langford (knee) will play Week 1 against the Lions.

He underwent a knee scope last month and returns just in time for the season opener. With DE Henry Anderson (knee) out, having Langford is big for the Colts.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Feb 26, 2015 04:04:00 PM

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.
