Da'Rick Rogers
News
With LaVon Brazill suspended for at least a year, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen have the inside track on the Colts' final two receiver spots, reports ESPN.com. Rogers and Whalen should make the team behind Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and rookie Donte Moncrief.

Reggie Wayne
News
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne, who's coming back from a torn ACL, has been cleared for training camp, reports the team's website. Wayne showed up to camp in an Indy Car, which he said is symbolic because "he feels fast."

Wayne caught 38 passes for 503 yards and two touchdowns last year before the injury ended his season in Week 7.

Arthur Jones
News
New Colts defensive lineman Arthur Jones will line up in different positions and allow Indy to use various combinations up front, reports ESPN.com.

“I’m not going to pigeonhole by saying he’s an inside guy or an outside guy,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “He brings position flexibility to our front. He’s a sub-rusher on third down. He can give you inside push, he can beat guys one-on-one. He has sack numbers for an inside guy.”

Jones posted 53 tackles and four sacks with the Ravens last year.

The Buccaneers announced Wednesday they waived defensive end Aaron Morgan. The fourth-year pro has six career tackles in 18 games between the Jaguars and Bucs.
Delano Howell
News
The Colts will give safety Delano Howell the first crack at replacing departed veteran Antoine Bethea, ESPN reports. Howell played in a limited capacity last season and had some big plays including a touchdown against the Seahawks. 

"All I think back to is Delano Howell," Pagano said per ESPN. "We went out and beat a pretty good football team (San Francisco), I think he started at safety that game and had, I don't know, six, seven, eight tackles or something, was pretty productive in that ball game. He returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown against Seattle. He's not the only one. We've got guys in-house that will be great competition there."

Jack Mewhort
News
With the No. 59 pick in the NFL Draft, the Colts selected offensive lineman Jack Mewhort from Ohio State. This was the first pick in the draft for Indianapolis after trading its first-round pick last year to Cleveland for Trent Richardson.

Mewhort is 6-foot-6, 309 pounds. He played left tackle for the Buckeyes the past two years, but he also played guard during his tenure at Ohio State.

He has the chance to start for the Colts right away, and he should help protect Andrew Luck in 2014.

Fili Moala
News
The Colts announced Wednesday that they placed defensive end Fili Moala on injured reserve. Moala partially tore his ACL after colliding with a teammate during OTAs and his knee buckled, NFL.com reports.

The tear occurred in Moala's right knee, the same knee injury he suffered in Nov. 2012. The 28-year-old re-signed with the Colts this offseason as a rotational player.

Moala started six games in 2013 and earned the second-most snaps along the Colts' defensive front. He produced 1.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hurries.

Injury
Knee - Out for season
Jerrell Freeman
News
Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman has been a one-man wrecking crew during the team's three-game win streak, producing 29 tackles, four forced fumbles, two sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. His six forced fumbles this season are a franchise record.

"As you get seasoned, you try to bring more to your game, and that was one of the things: try to get turnovers, try to get the ball out, get interceptions," Freeman told the Indianapolis Star. "However I can get the ball and give it back to the offense."

Greg Toler
News
Because of sports hernia surgery this offseason, Colts cornerback Greg Toler is being held out of the team's offseason workouts. The trainers expect to slowly ramp him up to full speed. 

"I'm fully healthy, we're just trying to get the scar tissue to break down and then get back running again," Toler told ESPN. " ... I have a lot to prove this year. I know my 16-game stack will stack up to any 16-game stack. I just have to be healthy. That's the biggest thing."

Toler has yet to play more than 14 games in a season over his career.

Joining Moala on the inactive list are linebacker Daniel Adongo, defensive backs Sheldon Price and Cassius Vaughn, tight end Weslye Saunders and offensive linemen Khaled Holmes and Joe Reitz.  

Andy Studebaker
News
The Colts made two roster moves Wednesday. They signed running back Dan Herron off the Bengals' practice squad and signed free agent linebacker Andy Studebaker to the active roster.
Erik Swoope
News
Colts rookie Erik Swoope isn't your typical tight end -- he spent his college career playing basketball at the University of Miami. But Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has seen Swoope transition nicely to football, where he's trying to follow in the footsteps of another former 'Cane-turned-tight end in Jimmy Graham.

"It's been a pleasant surprise just to see how he's been able to acclimate himself to the game of football," Hamilton said per ESPN. "His natural-born talents show every day in practice. He does an amazing job of going up and catching the football, making difficult catches. He has a catching radius that's off the charts. It'll be interesting to see how he comes along during training camp when we put the pads on and actually start practicing football." 

Swoope figures to begin his career on the Colts' practice squad, according to ESPN. 

Bjoern Werner
News
Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has challenged 2013 first-round pick and outside linebacker Bjoern Werner to bulk up in the offseason.

"He knows he needs to get stronger. He knows that," Grigson said in his postseason press conference.

Grigson did add that he felt Werner got better against the run as the year progressed. Werner started just one game in 2013 and managed 18 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks.

Greg Moore

Matt Hasselbeck
News
Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, whose contract expires at season's end, wants to back up Andrew Luck in 2015 and beyond. "Ideally, that would be a dream come true," Hasselbeck told the team's website.

The 38-year-old appeared in three games last season, throwing for 130 yards and an interception.

Khaled Holmes
News
The Colts have issues at center after they released Samson Satele in March, and Phil Costa retired in April, leaving Khaled Holmes, the likely starter, and Thomas Austin as the centers on the roster, reports ESPN.

The Colts could also turn to Donald Thomas, who didn't make it through two full games last season because of a torn tendon in his quad and a torn bicep. But he could be thrown in the mix if needed.

"If you go through most rosters and depth charts, you usually will have, generally, your starting center, your more true center, so to speak," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. "Then, you’ll have usually a guard who can snap, or a guy who's a guard first that can also snap and play at a winning level as your second center. We have three snappers now. We'll keep our options open.

"Like all position groups, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from, we've been pretty consistent, the best players play. Whoever is going to start for this team in 2014 has to produce and play at a winning level week in and week out, period."

Aaron Burks
News
The Colts waived suspended wideout LaVon Brazill and signed receiver Aaron Burks, an undrafted free agent from Boise State. Brazill, 25, is suspended for at least a year for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Burks caught 18 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns for the Broncos last season, averaging 17.2 yards per catch.

T.Y. Hilton
News
Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton is doing well this offseason, reports the team's official website. Quarterback Andrew Luck called Hilton "phenomenal," and the team is moving him around to learn every receiver position.

"He's played all four spots, both outside positions (and) both slots. We feel like that's important so that teams can't scheme to take him away," said offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. "We've challenged T.Y. to understand the concepts (of) all four spots. He's done extremely well."

Hilton is entering his third year in the NFL, and he's looking to build off last year's breakout campaign when he had 82 catches for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns.

Andrew Jackson
News
With the 203rd pick in the NFL Draft, the Colts drafted inside linebacker Andrew Jackson from Western Kentucky.

The 6-foot-1, 254-pound linebacker amassed 95 total tackles, including 8.5 for a loss. He also contributed with a sack and two defended passes while getting the starting nod in 10 of 11 games played in 2013.

D'Qwell Jackson

The Colts announced Thursday the signing of veteran linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, who is expected to come in and start right away in the middle of their defense. 

Jackson was a fixture in the Browns defense for many years, totaling at least 110 tackles in each of his last three seasons while contributing a number of sacks, passes defensed and interceptions along the way. He hasn't missed a game in three seasons. 

Ricky Jean Francois
News
Though the Colts entered the Wild Card game against the Chiefs with an extensive list of injured players on the defensive side of the ball, all but one was able to play Saturday. Among the 10 players listed on the injury report, only defensive lineman Fili Moala (knee) was unable to play.

The list of Colts defenders able to play through injuries reads as follows: defensive backs Sergio Brown (groin), Darius Butler (quadriceps), Vontae Davis (groin) and Greg Toler (groin); linebackers Bjoern Werner (ankle) and Robert Mathis (not injury related); and defensive linemen Cory Redding (shoulder), Ricky Jean Francois (foot) and Aubrayo Franklin (knee). 

Mike Adams

Veteran free safety Mike Adams has been signed by the Colts. Adams, who started seven games for the AFC champion Broncos last season, had previously played for San Francisco and Cleveland. He recorded 48 tackles and one interception in 2013.
Donte Moncrief
News
Colts rookie receiver Donte Moncrief had a "spectacular practice" Wednesday, reports the Indianapolis Star, and he spent "considerable time" with the first-team offense.

The report says Moncrief was able to "run by defenders with ease" and provided a huge red zone target for quarterback Andrew Luck during the practice.

"He is big, fast and smart," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said of Moncrief, who is 6-foot-2. "He has the tools to be a legitimate down-the-field threat."

Chandler Harnish
News
The Colts signed guard Zach Allen, center Thomas Austin, linebacker Alan Baxter, cornerback Marcus Burley, quarterback Chandler Harnish and tight end Martell Webb to reserve/futures contracts.
Jack Doyle
News
The Colts received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's playoff loss to the Patriots.

Griff Whalen made a few big plays to stretch the field for Indianapolis and finished the game with 67 yards on five catches.

Ahmad Bradshaw
News
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he'd like to have a "bell cow" running back this season, but he's not against having a running back by committee, reports ESPN.

The Colts are expected to use Trent Richardson as the starter, but it sounds like if he struggles again then Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard could have a bigger role.

Trent Richardson
News
Colts running back Trent Richardson revealed Thursday that he played last season with a chipped collarbone and a separated AC joint, reports ESPN.com. The AC joint is where the collarbone meets the shoulder.

"Toward the end of the season I felt a lot more comfortable, but the other time I was more injured," said Richardson, who had offseason shoulder surgery.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Richardson not only is healthier, but has a much better grasp of the playbook this year.

"He’s a lot more comfortable," Pagano said. "Basically it was survival for him at first, memorization. Now he has a better understanding scheme-wise, why we’re doing things, why we’re calling certain things, how we run plays. He has a better feel for guys he’s playing with, the line, guy in front of him, the fullback. He’s obviously in a much better place."

The website said the Colts need a big year from Landry after the departure of fellow safety Antoine Bethea.

"The thing with LaRon is and I know [coach] Chuck (Pagano) alluded to it, he's a guy that his throttle is always full-bore," general manager Ryan Grigson told the website. "He's out there in parts unknown working out. We trust him in the fact that we know he's going to go harder than anyone."

The Colts have issues at center after they released Samson Satele in March, and Phil Costa retired in April, leaving Khaled Holmes, the likely starter, and Thomas Austin as the centers on the roster, reports ESPN.

The Colts could also turn to Donald Thomas, who didn't make it through two full games last season because of a torn tendon in his quad and a torn bicep. But he could be thrown in the mix if needed.

"If you go through most rosters and depth charts, you usually will have, generally, your starting center, your more true center, so to speak," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. "Then, you’ll have usually a guard who can snap, or a guy who's a guard first that can also snap and play at a winning level as your second center. We have three snappers now. We'll keep our options open.

"Like all position groups, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from, we've been pretty consistent, the best players play. Whoever is going to start for this team in 2014 has to produce and play at a winning level week in and week out, period."

Kelvin Sheppard
News
The Colts inactive list for Week 11 against the Titans did not feature much in the way of surprises Thursday, as all three players sidelined by injuries had already been ruled out: defensive backs Josh Gordy (groin), Delano Howell (neck) and Greg Toler (groin) were all inactive for the game due to injury.

They were joined on the inactive list by linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, defensive lineman Montori Hughes, wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers and offensive lineman Khaled Holmes.

 

Dwayne Allen
News
Colts tight end Dwayne Allen played just 32 snaps last season before suffering a season-ending hip injury. His loss took a lot of unique formations out of Indianapolis' playbook as they intended to use a lot of two-tight end sets and feature Allen, the official team website reports.

However, with Allen healed and ready to start training camp, the site says the "possibilities are endless" in how the Colts use Allen and teammate Coby Fleener this season. 

"It makes us a better football team," tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts said of a healthy Allen. "Getting him back is like getting a brand new player."

The Colts expect to be more creative on offense with Allen back in the fold.

Colt Anderson
News
Former Eagles safety Colt Anderson signed a contract with the Colts on Monday. The team did not reveal the terms of the deal.

Anderson is expected to fill the void for Antoine Bethea, who signed with San Francisco in the offseason. Anderson had 11 tackles and two forced fumbles in 14 games played last season for the Eagles. He has one career interception.

Coby Fleener
News
Colts tight end coach Alfredo Roberts said Coby Fleener was a different player last season than he was as a rookie. Roberts noted Fleener excelled in the postseason with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. 

"One is a trust factor," Roberts told the team's website. "He grew and he challenged himself to make plays and he showed up, especially in big games."

After catching 26 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, Fleener hauled in 52 passes for 608 yards and four scores last season. Both he and tight end Dwayne Allen, now recovered from a hip injury, are expected to be used heavily in 2014.
