Colts placed WR Brian Tyms (ribs) on injured reserve.

It’s the second straight year he’ll miss after sitting out 2015 with a torn Achilles. The Colts signed Andre Dubose to replace Tyms.

Per the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer, Colts WR Brian Tyms "especially stood out" at OTAs.

Tyms has long flashed in offseason practices, but he's never been able to stay healthy or translate it to real football games. He dominated in the 2014 preseason for the Patriots but ended up being inactive much of the season and missed all of last year with an Achilles' injury. He's competing for the No. 4 job in Indy.

Colts signed WR Brian Tyms, formerly of the Patriots.

Tyms briefly made noise in 2014 before missing all of last season with an Achilles' issue. He'll battle for the Colts' fourth receiver job behind T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett.

The Patriots will not tender restricted free agent Brian Tyms.

Tyms never saw the field last year after suffering an Achilles' injury at training camp. He's only played 190 snaps in two NFL seasons.
Wed, Mar 2, 2016 03:43:00 PM

Patriots waived/injured WR Brian Tyms.

Tyms hurt his foot in practice last week and will head to injured reserve, assuming he clears waivers. It's been all downhill for the 26-year-old since his electric preseason last year. He caught just five passes across 11 games in 2014.
Mon, Aug 24, 2015 06:12:00 PM

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports Patriots WR Brian Tyms' season is "in jeopardy" after suffering a foot injury.

Since Tyms' monster 2014 preseason, he hasn't made much noise. He appeared in 11 games last season after serving a four-game suspension, catching five passes for 82 yards and one touchdown. His main contributions came on special teams as a gunner. Tyms was competing for a final receiver spot.

Patriots WR Brian Tyms didn't suffer any major damage when he hurt his shoulder at Tuesday's practice.

There's no exact timetable for his return, though the Patriots hope to have him back later this preseason. Backups Brandon Gibson and Aaron Dobson will get more run in his absence. Tyms was only targeted 12 times in 11 games last season and won't be a fantasy factor in 2015.
Thu, Aug 6, 2015 10:54:00 AM

Patriots WR Brian Tyms was carted off the field with an apparent arm injury in Tuesday's practice.

According to the Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young, "several teammates gathered when he went down." ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports Tyms took a "big hit" in 1-on-1 tackling drills, and his injury "looked significant." Anything more than a day-to-day issue would threaten to send the 2014 preseason star to I.R.
Tue, Aug 4, 2015 03:15:00 PM

Patriots re-signed WR Brian Tyms.

The 26-year-old preseason sensation finished 2014 with five catches for 82 yards and a touchdown. The Pats will hope Tyms' development continues in his second year with the organization. Tyms has plus size and leaping ability.
Wed, Mar 11, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Patriots declined to extend a qualifying offer to WR Brian Tyms, making him a free agent.

Tyms was arguably the first star of the 2014 preseason, posting an 11-188-2 line while grading out as PFF's No. 1 wideout. Still just 26 years old and now free to pick his landing spot, he's a name to monitor.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 04:51:00 PM

Patriots WR Brian Tyms is inactive for Super Bowl XLIX.

Tyms wound up appearing in 11 regular season games for the Pats, securing five balls for 82 yards and a touchdown. He didn't show enough special teams value to crack the Super Bowl game-day roster. Turning 26 in February, Tyms remains a player to monitor in Dynasty leagues after ripping up the 2014 preseason. He's 6-foot-1, 203 with a top-flight athletic profile.
Sun, Feb 1, 2015 06:03:00 PM

Brian Tyms caught 4-of-6 targets for 39 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

Tyms had three early catches from Tom Brady in the first quarter, but was completely shut down by the Bills secondary after that. After lighting up the preseason, Tyms finished the regular season with just five catches for 82 yards.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:10:00 PM

Brian Tyms wasn't targeted in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets.

Tyms' 43-yard touchdown was one of the biggest plays of New England's Week 6 win over the Bills, while he spent the whole week getting showered with praise from the coaching staff. Alas, he's a situational deep threat who apparently isn't ready for a bigger role. Tyms should remain stashed in Dynasty formats, but isn't much of a threat to come into re-draft value.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 12:27:00 AM

WR Brian Tyms earned "rave reviews" from Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels earlier this week.

Tyms only played eight snaps against the Bills last week, but made his mark with a 43-yard touchdown. Those that watched the preseason closely weren't surprised, as Tyms ripped off a 11-188-2 line while grading out as PFF's No. 1 wideout. It appears he'll be active again Thursday night, possibly at the expense of Aaron Dobson. Tyms needs to be rostered in all Dynasty formats and should at least be on re-draft watch lists.
