Draft Scout Dan Herron News
04/01/15 - RB Dan "Boom" Herron signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender with the Colts Wednesday (April 1).
Herron has recorded 83 rushes for 384 yards and a touchdown, as well as 22 receptions for 230 yards in 22 regular-season games (three starts) since being signed by the Colts from the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad on Oct. 9, 2013. He also contributed with 10 special teams tackles over the past two seasons.
In 2014, Herron played in all 16 games (three starts) and totaled 351 rushing yards, including a 49-yard touchdown, on 78 carries (4.5 average) and 173 receiving yards on 21 receptions.
Herron started all three postseason games, where he posted the most receiving yards (128) by a running back in a single postseason in team history.
03/08/15 - RB Daniel "Boom" Herron, restricted FA update, came up big for Indianapolis when he took over as the team's starting running back late in the 2014 season. He gave the Colts' running game a big shot in the arm, rushing for 351 yards and a touchdown while also catching 21 passes for 173 yards. Is he an every-down back? No. But he can be a pretty good change-of-pace runner. He might be in the rotation next season.
01/14/15 - RB Daniel "Boom" Herron's 31 touches in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game at Denver last week was the most for a Colts running back since Dominic Rhodes had 35 in the 2007 regular-season finale.

Herron suffered an apparent shoulder injury in the first half of the Denver game. He came out of the game briefly but then returned and played the rest of the day. Herron is expected to start Sunday at New England.
12/01/14 - RB Daniel "Boom" Herron continues to impress. Herron had a 49-yard touchdown run against Washington. He also had a fumble, his second lost possession in two games. "Yeah, he's a talented, talented guy and I think we've seen that out of him," coach Chuck Pagano said. "He's quick, he's fast to hit the hole and, once he gets outside, he's got some long speed. I think we all found that out. It's always nice to be able to get outside and get those guys loose in the secondary and have a guy that can take it the distance. It was a nice run."
