COLTS WAIVE HEENAN, BUT HAVE PLANS FOR HIM

The NFL's Indianapolis Colts waived offensive lineman Ben Heenan - the former Roughrider from Grand Coulee, SK - on Friday but say they still have plans for him.  They have also agreed to an injury settlement however Heenan's not on his way back to Regina.  Here's an excerpt from the Colts' website on Friday:

Chuck Pagano on offensive guard Ben Heenan:

“He’s got a meniscus tear (knee) that will require surgery. We are looking at probably four-to-six weeks on him.”

Analysis: Heenan, the former Canadian Football League product, was carted off the field during Wednesday’s night practice.

Pagano provided the update on Friday morning with Heenan likely out for the rest of the preseason, and part of the regular season. The Colts signed Heenan, a former No. 1 overall pick in the CFL, back in February. Pagano said on Friday that the staff liked the toughness of Heenan and the offensive guard is someone they would like to develop post-injury.
