Analysis: The Colts claimed Chase McLaughlin off waivers Wednesday. McLaughlin, a rookie from Illinois, has appeared in four games with the Chargers and three with San Francisco this season. He's made 13 of 17 field goals and all 15 extra points. The 46-year-old Vinatieri, meanwhile, has had one of the worst seasons of his career.

Kalen Ballage, Mia, RB
Ballage’s historically unproductive season ended Tuesday when he was placed on injured reserve.
Analysis: Ballage, who hurt his left leg in Sunday’s victory over Philadelphia, finishes the season with 135 yards in 74 carries. His 1.8-yard average is the worst by a running back with at least 70 carries since Phil Sarboe had a 1.2-yard average for two teams in 1936. Ballage’s long gain was 8 yards. Some 199 players have had a longer run this season.
