The Colts have waived Tipton, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports. In a corresponding move, the Colts signed fellow running back Trey Williams off the Dolphins practice squad to add some change-of-pace depth to the team's backfield.
Tipton signed with the Colts on Monday. Tipton re-joins the Colts after being waived by the team just last week. However, with Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) now on injured reserve, Tipton figures to see third-string running back duties behind Frank Gore and Dan Herron.
Tipton has been waived by the Colts. Tipton became the odd man out after the Colts claimed fellow RB Dan Herron on waivers from the Bills on Thursday.
Running back Zurlon Tipton was signed to the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. With the inevitable release of Vick Ballard finally arriving Tuesday, Tipton was brought back to provide additional depth at the RB position. However with running backs Frank Gore, Josh Robinson and Tyler Varga already on the roster, it's unlikely Tipton will provide much of a Fantasy impact this season.
Colts running back Trent Richardson did not make the trip with the team to New England due to personal reasons and will not play in Sunday's AFC Championship game, the team announced Saturday. Richardson also missed the divisional round of the playoffs and received zero carries in the wild card round. Richardson reportedly missed walkthroughs Saturday and did not notify the team for his reason, according to the Indianapolis Star. Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton will continue to carry the load for the Colts Sunday. Indianapolis is currently a 6 1/2-point underdog against the Patriots.
