Position Listing
Demarco Cox
News
The Colts released offensive tackle Demarco Cox on Friday, per radio station 1070 The Fan

Cox completed his college basketball career at Georgia Tech in March and was trying to convert to an NFL football lineman after not playing the sport at the college level.

Dwight Lowery
News
The Colts have agreed to terms with safety Dwight Lowery, according to the team's official website. Terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.

Lowery, an unrestricted free agent, is entering his eighth season in the NFL, spending time with the Jets, Jaguars and Falcons. 

The 29-year-old has recorded 259 total tackles, four sacks, 50 passes defensed, 12 interceptions, seven fumbles recovered and seven forced fumbles in his career.

Joe Reitz
News
The Colts will have a very deep offensive line for OTAs. Currently, the team's roster features 10 players that have started in the NFL, per Colts.com

The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line. 

Khaled Holmes enters the offseason as the starting center, but he'll be pushed by Jonotthan Harrison, who started 10 games last season. 

At right guard, offseason acquisition Todd Herremans has the inside track, but he'll compete with Hugh Thornton, a veteran of 20 NFL starts. 

Gosder Cherilus, returning from knee and groin injuries that landed him on injured reserve last season, will start OTAs as the right tackle. Joe Reitz and Ulrick John will compete for the job. 

Josh McNary
News
Colts owner Jim Irsay said Friday the arrest of rookie Josh McNary will be a limited distraction to the team this week and expects his team to move forward.

"We'll move forward," Irsay said. "You don't want things to happen, but it was really limited as a distraction to the team. It was dealt with and we'll move forward."

McNary was charged with rape during an incident with a woman in Indianapolis. He entered a not-guilty plea to the accusations. 

"Obviously, it's unfortunate," Irsay said. "We'll see what develops."

Reggie Wayne
News
After being told by Colts general manager Jim Irsay that he was not in the team's plans moving forward, wide receiver Reggie Wayne still wants to play one more season, reports theindychannel.com. He has received interest from teams this offseason and he is weighing his options at this point.

“Just not done, yet,” he said, adding that signing with another team “will have to make sense to me. No doubt in my mind I’ve got a minimum of one, maybe two years left in me. I ain’t done, yet.”

Wayne insisted he’s gotten “damned good” interest from teams, but declined to name them. “I’m just going to consider my options,” per the same report.

Wayne was asked if he was disappointed in the team's decision to not keep him around.

“Was I disappointed? Yeah,” Wayne said. “But did it surprise me? I’m never surprised in this league. When they get rid of Peyton Manning, you know you ain’t nothing. When you see them get rid of Marvin Harrison, who am I? They got rid of Edgerrin James.

“But yeah, I was disappointed. Who isn’t disappointed when they’re told their credit card has been declined when they know they’ve got money in the bank. That was me. I knew I still could play, but I had been declined.”

Wayne, 36, has totaled 1,070 receptions for 14,345 yards and 82 touchdowns in 14 seasons with the Colts.

Arthur Jones
News
The Patriots have run for 480 yards and 10 touchdowns in two recent meetings with the Colts. Indy defensive end Arthur Jones, a 6-3, 337-pounder, wasn't there for either.

Jones, who missed the Week 11 meeting with an ankle injury, is set to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England.

“(Jones has) made a huge impact,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano told ESPN.com. “It was too bad that we lost him early for that span. Right now he’s feeling really good and he’s very disruptive. He does a great job along with those other guys of forcing double-teams. He commands a double-team. He’s sideline to sideline. He’s a great effort, great energy guy, can give you some push in the middle of the pocket in the pass game. Certainly, it’s good to have Art playing at the level that he’s playing at.”

Without Jones this season, the Colts have given up 4.7 yards per carry. With him, they're yielding 3.7 ypc.

Indy is a 6.5-point underdog Sunday.

Delano Howell
News
The Colts have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 17 players and making other moves.

The offensive players on the list are running back David Fluellen, quarterback Chandler Harnish, wide receivers Ryan Lankford and Josh Lenz, center FN Lutz, tight ends Weslye Saunders and Erik Swoope and guard Josh Walker.

The defensive players let go by Indianapolis are ends Gannon Conway and Tyler Hoover, linebackers Rob Ruggiero, Kelvin Sheppard, Phillip Hunt and Andrew Jackson, safety Dewey McDonald, tackles Brandon McKinney and Nnamdi Obukwelu and cornerback Sheldon Price.

The Colts waived/injured tackle Matt Hall and safety Delano Howell and placed linebacker Robert Mathis on the reserve/suspended list.

D'Joun Smith
News
Some rookies might be willing to bide their time and wait for a chance to prove themselves. Colts new cornerback D'Joun Smith is not one of them.

The third-round pick not only seeks playing time, he considers himself potentially the finest at his position in the NFL.

"Under the right tutelage and the right coach that's going to make my technique even better, I'm probably going to be the best cornerback to play the game," Smith told the team website."

Chuck Pagano declined to tone down the rhetoric. In fact, he welcomes the confidence.

"You don't want a meek kind of milk toast type of guy sitting there," he said. "This sucker was on the edge of his seat in his (Combine) interview. When he came in, it was all business. ... This guy truly believes. At the time we asked him who was the best corner in the draft this year, he said, 'It's me.' He plays with a chip on his shoulder. You have to have it to play that position."

It might take a while for Smith to receive the opportunity to prove his assertion. The Colts start veterans Mike Adams, Dwight Lowery, Vontae Davis and Greg Toler in the secondary. They combine for 30 years of NFL experience. Fellow veteran Darius Butler plays the nickel.

Anthony Castonzo

Sheldon Price
News
The Colts have declared the following players as inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game: Trent Richardson, Griff Whalen, Sheldon Price, Xavier Nixon, Jonotthan Harrison, Bjoern Werner and Zach Kerr.

It is the second straight week Richardson will be inactive. 

The Colts are currently 7-point underdogs against the Patriots Sunday.

Vick Ballard
News
Colts running back Vick Ballard said he's continued to stay on track with his recovery from a ruptured Achilles, according to Scout.com

Ballard has missed just about all of the previous two seasons due to injuries. He tore his Achilles before the 2014 season and was unable to play. When training camp comes around, it will mark almost a year from when he sustained the injury. 

He said he should be good to go for the start of camp, though.

“Yeah, definitely man,” Ballard said. “Training camp is a long time from now, so truth be told, I probably could participate now, but there’s no rush. Just trying to take my time with it.”

Ballard led the Colts in rushing as a rookie in 2012 with 814 yards and two touchdowns. He only played in one game in 2013 before tearing his ACL in a practice the following week. His Achilles tear came during the 2014 preseason.

Ryan Lankford

The Colts have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 17 players and making other moves.

The defensive players let go by Indianapolis are ends Gannon Conway and Tyler Hoover, linebackers Rob Ruggiero, Kelvin Sheppard, Phillip Hunt and Andrew Jackson, safety Dewey McDonald, tackles Brandon McKinney and Nnamdi Obukwelu and cornerback Sheldon Price.

The Colts waived/injured tackle Matt Hall and safety Delano Howell and placed linebacker Robert Mathis on the reserve/suspended list.

Jack Mewhort
News
The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts. 

Part of the reason for the shuffling is that a pair of linemen, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and right guard Donald Thomas, aren't taking part in OTAs.

Left guard Jack Mewhort filled in at right tackle and newly acquired Todd Herremans was at right guard. 

At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes

"We've got some guys that we're moving around," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN. "Come training camp, still going to be some competition."

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.

The three-year starter led Indianapolis in tackles in 2012 and 2013 before losing four games to a hamstring injury last year. He still finished with 95 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.

Greg Toler
News
Barring a setback before the game, Colts cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Greg Toler will play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England, sources told the NFL Network.

Shawn Loiseau
News
Only first-rounder Anthony Castonzo remains from the 2011 draft by the Colts. That's because they waived second-round tackle Ben Ijalana and third-round defensive tackle Drake Nevis on Saturday, according to NBC Sports.

The following is a list of their other cuts: linebackers Monte Simmons and Daniel Adongo, safety Larry Asante, center Thomas Austin, cornerback Marshay Green, defensive end Lawrence Guy, quarterback Chandler Harnish, fullback Robert Hughes, tight end Dominique Jones, wide receivers Lanear Sampson, Jabin Sambrano and Jeremy Kelley, tackles Lee Ziemba and Bradley Sowell and nose tackle Martin Tevaseu.

The team also waived/injured tackle Emmett Cleary, linebacker Shawn Loiseau and cornerback Dax Swanson.

News
Colts linebacker Bjoern Werner will miss Sunday's AFC Championship Game, as he has been listed as inactive for the game. Werner dealt with a shoulder injury  during the last few weeks of the regular season, but was able to play through it.

He totaled 50 tackles on the season including four sacks in 15 games.

The Colts are currently 7-point underdogs against New England.

Matt Hasselbeck
News
It looks like Matt Hasselbeck's NFL career will extend at least one more year. 

The Colts reached a one-year deal with backup quarterback Hasselbeck, the team announced on Thursday. 

Hasselbeck, 39, will enter his 17th year in the NFL. After starting out as Brett Favre's backup in Green Bay for his first two seasons in 1999 and 2000, he joined the Seahawks via a trade and quickly established himself as a starting-caliber quarterback. 

In 16 NFL seasons, Hasselbeck has totaled 34,948 yards, 203 touchdowns and 148 interceptions. He'll be the top candidate to back up Andrew Luck next season.

T.Y. Hilton
News
Colts standout wideout T.Y. Hilton is talking like teammate and newcomer Phillip Dorsett is after his job rather than another wide receiver that can help his team.

But what Dorsett could prove to be is insurance in case Hilton leaves. The young veteran is approaching his contract year.

"There's nothing I can do about that," Hilton told the Indianapolis Star. "That's who they picked. That's cool with me." Hilton went on to talk about his "battle" and "competition" with Dorsett.

Dorsett is certainly no immediate threat to Hilton in regard to playing time. The latter racked up a career-high 1,345 yards in receiving a year ago with seven touchdowns.

Carlos Fields
News
The Giants signed cornerback Victor Hampton and linebacker Carlos Fields to the practice squad Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.
Andre Johnson
News
Wide receiver Andre Johnson, in his first year with the Colts, said Wednesday that Andrew Luck is "probably the best quarterback I've ever played with," which makes sense given the rotating cast of signal-callers who threw passes to Johnson while he was with the Texans. 

Johnson, 33, joined the Colts this offseason after 12 campaigns in Houston, where he recorded 1,012 receptions, 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns to become one of the NFL's elite receivers. 

Jonotthan Harrison
News
The Colts will have a two-man battle for the starting center spot. 

Khaled Homes and Jonotthan Harrison are already splitting reps, and the competition will heat up as OTAs begin this week. 

"We’re rotating them through the time right now," Colts Offensive Line Coach Joe Gilbert told Colts.com. "I think they know the competition is between the two of them. ... The one good thing is they get along. They compete. They know they’re competing, but again, I think that’s the part that really pushes both of them to really hit their max."

News
The Colts announced the release of linebacker Shaun Phillips on Monday. 

Phillips appeared in five games during the 2014 season and totaled seven tackles. During his 11-year career, Phillips recorded 561 tackles and 81 1/2 sacks.

Donte Moncrief
News
Although the Colts didn't re-sign wide receivers Reggie Wayne or Hakeem Nicks, the team has been busy this offseason adding wide receivers. Through Thursday, they have signed Duron Carter, Andre Johnson and Vincent Brown.

However, despite the additions to the wide receiver corps, it appears the Colts plan to get second-year wide receiver Donte Moncrief more involved on offense in 2015, per the team's official website.

“Moncrief has big play ability and we saw him do that,” coach Chuck Pagano said at the NFL Annual Meeting in March. “He’s going to have more opportunities going forward.

“This guy can make plays. He’s big. He’s fast. He can stretch the defense, all those types of things. It’s a learning process, and he’s going to be better in Year 2 than he was in Year 1. He’s going to have more opportunities.”

Although, Moncrief will certainly have to compete for his targets in the passing game since still on the roster are playmakers like T.Y. Hilton, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.

“He’s a competitive guy and he’s not afraid of any challenge. He’s not going to back down from any challenge,” Pagano said. “Having said that, that’s obviously going to factor in as we move forward, just his mindset. He’s a great competitor. He will go back and study all that tape and see what people did to him. He’s got such a high ceiling and room for improvement. The sky’s the limit for him.”

Zurlon Tipton
News

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.

Andrew Luck
News
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck knows his weakness early on in his career has been giving the ball to the defense. Luck is working to make smarter decisions with the ball in 2015 to help improve the offense, according to ESPN.com.

"Cut down on interceptions and turnovers," Luck said. "That's sort of a no-brainer. I would love to get that touchdown-to-interception ratio very good in the touchdown sense. Then work on red zone and third-down stuff. Got to be better in those areas if we want to be an elite offense in the NFL. We've got to be top-five in the red zone and third down, so work on those."

Luck has 43 interceptions in his first three seasons in the league and also recorded a career high four fumbles in 2014.

David Arkin
News
The Colts waived running back Dion Lewis and signed defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles off the Patriots' practice squad. Indianapolis also signed guard David Arkin to its practice squad while releasing guard Josh Walker from the squad.
Frank Gore
News
Colts skill position newcomers Andre Johnson and Frank Gore have already shown a "relatively smooth" transition to their new team, Chuck Pagano told ESPN.

The wide receiver and running back performed so well in OTA work Wednesday that Pagano claimed that it appeared they had been with the organization for years.

"Pretty seamless," Pagano said about their work. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. ... They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."

Both veterans, however, have shown signs that their best days are behind them. The 33-year-old Johnson failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving last season for Houston for the first time in his last seven full seasons. The 32-year-old Gore managed another 1,000-yard performance in 2014, but his total was its lowest of any in a full season since 2008.

Kendall Langford
News
Colts coach Chuck Pagano indicated the signing of defensive lineman Kendall Langford is an attempt to help shore up a defense that finished 18th against the run in 2014, per ESPN. Pagano also views Langford as a replacement for Cory Redding, who signed with the Cardinals.

“I think right now you’ve got to look at him coming in and kind of filling that void where we lost C-Redd,” Pagano said of Langford. “He’s got position flexibility. He’s a big, long, athletic type guy who’s obviously very, very durable. You get a guy I think in base defense that can line up as your 5-technique (defender lines up on a tackle's outside shoulder) and give you good football at that position. In sub, he’s a big guy that you can sit in the middle as a defensive tackle, and he can play the run as well on first and second [down] on run situations and then give you some pass rush inside.”

Phillip Dorsett
News
Burner and new Colts wideout Phillip Dorsett expressed eagerness about sharing the field with standout quarterback Andrew Luck and defended his unimpressive numbers in his final season at the University of Miami.

Dorsett, who has been clocked at 4.27 in the 40, managed just 36 receptions last season with the Hurricanes. That averages out to fewer than three per game, but he has an explanation.

"You got to look at the offense I played in and you got to look at the circumstances," he told ESPN. "You got to look at the freshman quarterback I played with. And you got to look at every time I touched the ball. If someone looks at it and says it's a bad pick, it doesn't matter to me because I know what I'm capable of."

Luck? He is no college freshman. He led the NFL with 40 touchdown passes in 2014.

"That's the best thing about it honestly," Dorsett added. "Being able to play with an amazing quarterback like this is one of the best feelings ever. He's such a great quarterback, and he makes his receivers better."

Mathis was suspended for the first four games of last season due to violating the league's substance abuse policy. He then suffered a torn achilles, forcing him to miss all 16 games of the 2014 season.

During his 11-year career with the Colts, Mathis has collected 487 total tackles, 111.0 sacks, 15 passes defensed and 48 forced fumbles.

Colts linebacker Erik Walden and his female companion were attacked, according to the Indy Star.

The Braselton Police state that Erica Palmer, who has two children with Walden, has been accused of slashing his arm with a knife and breaking the other woman's arm with a baseball bat. Palmer's children are alleged to have been in the vehicle at the scene at the time of the incident.

After a struggle ensued, Walden wrestled the gun away but Palmer reportedly broke his girlfriend's arm with the bat. She then fled the home, only to reappear from the woods with a knife and slashed Walden's arm as he and his girlfriend were leaving in his car to go to the hospital.

The Colt has since been released from the hospital. The children have been placed in Walden's care for the time being.

Palmer was arrested on numerous charges following the incident.

Todd Herremans
News
The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts.

At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was released by the Colts after the 2014 season, pleaded no contest and paid a fine Monday in an Ohio court to a charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession, per the Associated Press

Bradshaw played last two seasons for the Indianapolis Colts. He scored eight touchdowns with 725 total yards in 10 games in 2014 before suffering a season-ending fractured fibula. 

The charges arose from a Feb. 5 traffic stop in which the officer smelled "the strong odor of raw marijuana." NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the case will be reviewed "under our policies." Any potential punishment would depend on his status in the league's drug program.

Donald Thomas
News
Colts guard Donald Thomas did not play during the 2014 season due to a torn quad and Thomas said he's still recovering from the injury, reports ESPN.com.

"If I had to put a gauge on it percentage wise, I couldn't give you that right now," Thomas said. "My main thing is just I'm not 100 percent right now. The hardest thing about that is the being able to try to get back to that."

Thomas has played in two games since signing with the Colts before the 2013 season.

"At the end of the day, it's frustrating at times because nobody knows how I look 100 percent healthy," he said. "It's not an easy feeling to go through something like this, but at the same time, you have to deal with it and take it day by day and try to get back and hopefully when the dust settles show everybody what you can do."

Dwayne Allen
News
Colts tight end Dwayne Allen can become a free agent after the 2015 season, but he said he's more concerned with how he performs than how much he'll earn in the future, reports the team's official website.

"I play this game because I want to be the best, not because I want to be the highest paid or anything like that," Allen said. "With the contract looming, it is what is. Me thinking about a contract isn't going to help me play any better on the field. Me focusing on having my body in the best shape possible to go out and help the team will."

Allen dealt with a high ankle sprain during the 2014 season, but he said he's healthy heading into the 2015 season.

"I felt 70 percent for the better part of [2014]," Allen said. "Having an offseason to really train like the offseason I had my rookie year or the offseason I had going into the second year, before I was injured, was my main focus. I'm glad I was able to get away and get that taken care of."
