Morris signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts.
After spending the season on the Colts' practice squad, the second-year quarterback will now be given another chance to secure a spot on the team's 53-man roster in 2017.
He'll likely return to Indy's practice squad. He was activated from the practice squad last week with Andrew Luck sidelined with a concussion. Morris' release is a sign Luck will be able to return for Monday's game.
The Colts have promoted Morris to their active roster.
While the Colts have not ruled Andrew Luck out for Thursday's game against the Steelers, the addition of Morris suggests that Luck will not be available for the contest. In such as scenario, Morris would back up Scott Tolzien on Thursday.
Morris was signed to the Indianapolis practice squad, Indysportscentral.com reports.
Scott Tolzien will be the backup to Andrew Luck to begin the season. Morris will likely spend all season on the practice squad in the the hopes he'll develop to be more of a factor in 2017.
