Staff and wire reports


Former Warren Harding High School and Ohio State running back Daniel “Boom” Herron has a new home in the NFL.

The Indianapolis Colts signed Herron and linebacker Andy Studebaker to their active roster Wednesday.

Herron replaced Ahmad Bradshaw, who was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list because of a neck injury.

The 5-foot-10, 212-pound Herron had been on the Bengals’ practice squad. Herron was Cincinnati’s sixth-round draft pick in 2012 draft. He had five carries for five yards and blocked a punt as a rookie.

Herron rushed for 2,869 yards and 32 touchdowns with the Buckeyes. He also caught 44 passes for 309 yards and a TD.

Studebaker played in 70 games, starting eight with Kansas City, from 2008 to 2012. The 6-foot-3, 248-pound free agent had career totals of 51 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks and two interceptions before he was released by the Chiefs in April.
