Colts waived RB Jeremy McNichols.

McNichols lasted four days on the active roster. His release creates a spot for Robert Turbin, who is coming off suspension. The Colts have also signed Jonathan Williams to the practice squad.
Oct 2 - 3:05 PM

Bucs signed DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, formerly of the Colts.

Nunez-Roches, 25, started 11 games for the Chiefs last season, playing 392 snaps. He was a surprise cut in May before getting claimed by the Colts and not making the team. Nunez-Roches takes the spot of DT Jerel Worthy.
Oct 1 - 7:46 PM

Colts waived TE Erik Swoope.

Even with Jack Doyle (hip) absent last week, Swoope was targeted just once on eight snaps in the loss to Philadelphia. With Swoope out of the picture, the Colts will go with Ryan Hewitt behind Eric Ebron, who will draw another start at tight end with Doyle out for the second week in a row.
Sep 28 - 4:25 PM

Colts released RB Christine Michael.

It's a likely indication that Marlon Mack (hamstring) will return this week. The Colts will move forward with Mack, Jordan Wilkins, and Nyheim Hines.
Sep 24 - 5:50 PM

Colts waived TE Erik Swoope.

The long buzzed-about ex-basketball player was active in Week 1, catching one pass. The Colts just haven't seen the development they need, and snaps and targets were going to be sparse behind Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron. Now 26, Swoope might not be a candidate for the practice squad. DT Jihad Ward has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.
Sep 13 - 4:45 PM

Raiders signed DT Johnathan Hankins, formerly of the Colts.

With both DTs P.J. Hall and Justin Ellis battling foot injuries sustained in Week 1, the Raiders need help. Hankins is a real solid get at this stage. He's just 26 and is coming off another productive year with the Colts after spending his first four years with the Giants. Hankins could see immediate snaps.
Sep 12 - 2:58 PM

Free agent RB Fitzgerald Toussaint visited the Colts Sunday.

With Marlon Mack (hamstring) highly questionable for Week 1, the Colts have only Jordan Wilkins, Christine Michael, and Nyheim Hines available. Toussaint has only handled six total carries over the past two seasons, but he's only 28 and remains experienced. Even if Mack sits Week 1, he's expected to return for the Colts' second game.
Sep 2 - 5:09 PM

Colts released OT Austin Howard.

The Colts, who just signed Howard in May, shopped Howard but couldn't find a taker. It's unclear whom Indy is moving forward with at right tackle, though it could be second-round OL Braden Smith. The team has also waived TE Mo Alie-Cox, K Mike Badgley, CB Juante Baldwin, DT Brandon Banks, C Deyshawn Bond, OG Nick Callender, LB Brandon Chubb, CB Lashard Durr, WR Reece Fountain, WR Cobi Hamilton, WR Steve Ishmael, WR Seantavius Jones, DT Tomasi Laulile, DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, CB Henre’ Toliver, OG Jeremy Vujnovich, QB Phillip Walker, CB D.J. White, WR Kasen Williams. LB Tyrell Adams, WR K.J. Brent, OT Tyreek Burwell, S Chris Cooper, S T.J. Green, WR Krishawn Hogan, CB Robert Jackson, S Ronald Martin, S Robenson Therezie and WR James Wright were waived/injured.
Sep 1 - 4:43 PM

Colts waived RB Branden Oliver.

Oliver didn't sign until Aug. 12. The Colts' chaotic backfield left an opening for him to make the 53-man roster, so it's a distressing sign for his NFL future that he could not do so.
Sep 1 - 12:12 PM

Colts waived WR Kasen Williams.

Williams didn't have a terrible preseason, but it's a bad sign he couldn't make a wide open Colts depth chart. His release likely locks Daurice Fountain and Zach Pascal into roster spots.
Aug 31 - 7:02 PM

Colts waived/injured S T.J. Green.

Green suffered a hamstring injury in the Colts' third preseason game against the Niners. He will revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. There's a strong chance he will be released with an injury settlement once he's back to full health. The 23-year-old struggled in coverage last year but impressed as a run-stopper, earning PFF's No. 10 safety grade in that category.
Aug 31 - 4:15 PM

Packers acquired LB Antonio Morrison from the Colts in exchange for CB Lenzy Pipkins.

Green Bay was in need of linebacker depth after losing Jake Ryan to an ACL tear. Third-round rookie Oren Burks (shoulder) is also banged up. Morrison led the Colts with 108 tackles last year despite earning PFF's second-worst grade out of 52 qualifiers at inside linebacker. Pipkins had been working with the third-team cornerbacks at Packers camp.
Aug 26 - 1:03 PM

Colts waived QB Brad Kaaya.

He was waived to make room for CB Juante Baldwin. Kaaya spent time on the Colts' active roster last year but did not see any game action.
Aug 24 - 8:57 AM

Colts coach Frank Reich said it's "no slam dunk" Marlon Mack is ready for the start of the season.

Mack has been out with a hamstring injury the last two weeks and is borderline questionable for Week 1. The team remains hopeful he can practice prior to their home opener versus the Bengals. If Mack can't go, duties would likely fall to the combination of rookies Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, and journeyman Christine Michael, the latter who's taken reps with the first-string offense during Mack's absence. Wilkins has continued to look the most impressive of the bunch, totaling 13 carries for 47 yards (3.6 YPC) on limited snaps in the preseason.
Aug 23 - 3:31 PM

Colts waived RB Tion Green.

The move opens up a roster spot for WR Cobi Hamilton. Green's tenure in Indy lasted less than a week. By waiving him, the Colts seem to be signaling that Marlon Mack's hamstring injury isn't a major concern. Green will look to latch on elsewhere as backup/change-of-pace option.
Aug 20 - 11:44 AM

Colts RB Josh Ferguson (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday.

Ferguson has missed most of camp with a hamstring injury. In his absence, the Colts added ex-Chargers RB Branden Oliver and former Lion RB Tion Green to their backfield. With Marlon Mack (hamstring) sidelined a few weeks and rookie Nyheim Hines struggling, Ferguson's camp reps can go a long way to solidifying his place on Indy's roster. Jordan Wilkins, Robert Turbin (four-game suspension), and Christine Michael round out the rest of the club's backfield.
Aug 14 - 7:37 PM

Andrew Luck completed 6-of-9 passes for 64 yards in Thursday’s preseason opener versus the Seahawks.

Luck went 5-of-7 for 55 yards on the Colts' opening drive, even taking a hit at one point when scrambling for a first down on third-and-short. HC Frank Reich took a more vanilla approach with Indy's offensive scheme Thursday, but Luck ultimately looked his normal form in his first game action in 18 months. If Luck continues to look healthy without any setbacks, both he and T.Y. Hilton's ADP's are sure to skyrocket over the next three weeks.
Aug 9 - 11:05 PM

Marlon Mack exited the Colts' preseason opener with a hamstring injury.

The extent is currently unknown, but hamstring injuries are always worth monitoring throughout the preseason once they occur. As expected, Mack started the game with Andrew Luck and the first-string offense, receiving a flip from Luck on the Colts' very first play. Robert Turbin came in the game once Mack exited.
Aug 9 - 10:45 PM

Colts owner Jim Irsay said he could see Marlon Mack "approaching 1,500 yards."

Colts used a fourth and fifth-round pick on promising rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins, but Irsay unsurprisingly touted Mack among Indianapolis' backs. "I think Mack has a chance to be a special guy this year," he said. "16-20 touches on the ground [per game] and I could see him approaching 1,500 yards [this season]. He is just better than you think he is every time you watch him." There's no denying Mack's explosiveness, but Irsay must've missed when the 2017 fourth-round pick was buried at or behind the line of scrimmage on 33% of his rushing attempts, second-most in the league. Mack will undoubtedly open Week 1 as Indy's starter but will need to improve upon his 3.8 YPC from last season if he hopes to stave off Hines and Wilkins.
Aug 4 - 12:58 PM

Andrew Luck went 19-of-22, including 12-of-14 in 11-on-11 situations, in the Colts' first full-padded practice Sunday.

It's not exactly a regular season game, but Colts beat writers raved throughout the evening as Luck returned to form. It was his first full-padded practice since the end of the 2016 season. Luck reportedly hit T.Y. Hilton in stride for two gains of 30-plus yards and had a touchdown pass dropped by Jack Doyle. If Luck continues to progress and takes the field in Indy's preseason opener, it will be his first game action in 19 months.
