With Vinatieri out, Colts sign Stover

Posted by ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky

The Colts have a new kicker for a month or two.

Here’s the short release they just sent out.

"The Indianapolis Colts have waived DT-Ed Johnson and have agreed to contract terms with K-Matt Stover. Stover joins the club after playing 1991-2008 with Cleveland and Baltimore. K-Adam Vinatieri has undergone successful arthroscopic surgery to his right knee to remove a piece of cartilage. Vinatieri is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks."

We don’t know if they’re going to offer further details on Johnson’s release. Coach Jim Caldwell will talk to the media at about 2:30 p.m. ET.
