Gardner (hamstring) worked out with Indianapolis on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

The 25-year-old was waived from injured reserve by Tampa Bay in early September with an injury settlement, and it now seems as if he's had enough time to move past his hamstring issue. Gardner appeared in one game for the Buccaneers in 2022, recording no stats and playing strictly on special teams.
