End of the Road for Ugoh?

Offensive tackle Tony Ugoh (toe) has been waived-injured. Ugoh, a second-round draft pick in 2007, was hurt in the Colts' preseason game at Green Bay two weeks ago.

Ugoh started 27 of the 37 games he played in with the team, mostly at left offensive tackle. Ugoh had been moved inside to offensive guard this past spring but was shifted back to tackle due to injuries at the position.

"Tony certainly has had one of those tough stretches here during the preseason, kind of up and down. That was it basically," Colts coach Jim Caldwell said of the decision to part ways with the former Arkansas offensive lineman.

"We're just not quite certain with his health consistently. He had some problems. We just never were quite certain when he was going to be able to get back. So we had to make a decision."

Caldwell wouldn't commit to whether the team would entertain the idea of bringing Ugoh back once he was healthy again.

"You never say never. The way this game is, you never know," he said.

Offensive tackle Joe Reitz has been signed to the roster. Reitz, who grew up in the Indianapolis area, had been waived by Miami earlier in the week. He had originally been signed as an undrafted free agent by Baltimore in 2008.

Reitz played college basketball at Western Michigan and had not played organized football since high school before he was signed by the Ravens.

"We had a chance to follow his background a little bit. Our personnel department took a good look at him and we know he has ability," Caldwell said.

"He's a guy that can obviously move his feet. He played basketball. He's got a good body and we think he's got good potential. Real good upside. So we're real anxious to have an opportunity to put him to work."
