Colts end Dickerson's suspension

November 28, 1991

The Indianapolis Colts activated running back Eric Dickerson yesterday, ending his three-week suspension.

Dickerson, the NFL's fourth all-time leading rusher, had been suspended for four weeks, but by mutual agreement his absence was cut to three weeks and he agreed to pay the club $225,000.

He was suspended without pay for what the club said was insubordination, conduct detrimental to the team and refusing to practice. However, negotiators for both Dickerson and the team agreed to terminate the suspension.

In other moves, the Colts waived running back Joe Henderson and wide receiver Reggie Thornton, who both had been on the practice squad.

Defensive back Mike Prior was removed from the injured list and assigned to the practice squad.

He is expected to be activated for Sunday's game with the Cleveland Browns at the Hoosier Dome.

Also, the Colts waived running back Brian Lattimore from the active roster and assigned him to the practice squad.

* PACKERS: Ron Wolf was named vice president of operations for the Green Bay Packers, replacing Tom Braatz, who was fired last week.

Wolf quit as New York Jets director of player personnel to take the job, and received a 5-year contract from the Packers.

Wolf, 53, has been with the Jets for a year and a half. Before that, he was the Los Angeles Raiders' player personnel chief for 12 years.
