Position Listing
Chester Rogers
News
Rogers could compete with Kamar Aiken and Philip Dorsett for the third and fourth spots on the wideout depth chart, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

The Colts signed Aiken away from Baltimore to push Dorsett, but the team also has an in-house option to challenge its disappointing 2015 first-round pick for the No. 3 wideout role. Rogers was a surprise contributor last year as an undrafted rookie, catching 19 of 35 targets for 273 yards (14.4 per catch, 7.8 per target) in 14 games, also adding 13 punt returns for 119 yards. Listed at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, he doesn't impress in terms of size or speed (4.51 40 at his pro day), and yet quarterback Andrew Luck, offensive coordinator Rod Chudzinski and GM Chris Ballard all spoke highly of Rogers' continued development after the Colts' offseason program wrapped up. While he'll likely still be an underdog in the competition for the No. 3 wideout job, Rogers shouldn't have too much trouble earning a roster spot.

Jon Bostic
News
Bostic (foot) participated in Tuesday's OTAs and got work as a starting inside linebacker, the team's official web site reports.

Bostic missed last season when he suffered a fractured left foot in training camp. It looks like he's ready to practice at full speed. He'll compete for a starting inside linebacker role this summer.

Andrew Williamson
News
Williamson (knee) ended the 2016 season on injured reserve.

Williamson, who went undrafted out of Vanderbilt in 2016, suffered an unspecified knee injury over the summer and reverted to IR after being waived/injured by the Colts. While the exact nature of his injury isn't clear, and neither is his current state of health, Williamson still has another two years left on his current contract and will likely be back in Indianapolis for the start of the 2017 campaign.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Arthur Jones
News
Jones (groin) was released by the Colts on Friday.

Jones was due to count over $7 million against the cap this season, which was unpalatable for someone that played in just 17 games over the past three seasons. The 30-year-old will now look to land elsewhere and get healthy ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Kelly

Anthony Castonzo

Jack Mewhort
News
Mewhort (knee) did not practice Tuesday, George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin reports.

All reports are that Mewhort is progressing nicely from the knee injury that he sustained at the end of last season. He actually practiced Monday which suggests that his absence could be linked to a more precautionary transition back into action. By the end of the week we should have a good idea of where he stands health-wise.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Blake Muir
No Updates
Malik Hooker
News
Hooker (hip/sports hernia) is now able to weight lift for the first time since his offseason surgery, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

While Hooker won't be able to practice until training camp at the earliest, his participation in some workouts with the team is an encouraging sign. He'll continue to participate in film study and weight lifting at the Colts facilities as he recovers and seeks to be cleared for participation in practices.

Injury
Sports Hernia - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rashaan Melvin
News
Melvin (knee) has been working as the backup at left corner with rookie Quincy Wilson sidelined with a foot injury, according to the team's official web site.

Melvin missed the final game of last season with a knee injury, but it doesn't look like a concern for 2017. Melvin will battle 2017 second-round draft pick Wilson for the starting left cornerback job opposite Vontae Davis.

Colin Jeter
No Updates
Tyvis Powell
News
The Colts claimed Powell off waivers Monday.

Powell, who logged three tackles on special teams with Seahawks in 2016, was waived by the Browns over the weekend. He'll likely need to play a role on special teams with the Colts as well if he wishes to make the final 53-man roster.

JoJo Natson
No Updates
Rigoberto Sanchez
No Updates
Trent Cole
News
Cole had a sack, a tackle for a loss and four tackles in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Cole's season looked over after a back injury placed him on injured reserve after Week 3, but he's been a productive rotation at rush linebacker. He played a season-high 46 snaps in Sunday's loss. It was just his fourth sack in 18 games since joining the Colts.

Erik Swoope
News
Swoope appears to have taken hold of second-string tight end duties after the Colts didn't select a player at the position during the 2017 NFL Draft, Stephen Holder of IndyStar.com reports.

Jack Doyle is expected to open the season as the team's top tight end after the Colts sent Dwayne Allen to the Patriots in a trade back in March. That allows Swoope to push for the No. 2 role behind Doyle, despite pulling in just 15 receptions for 297 yards and a touchdown during the 2016 campaign. With the Colts not electing to draft a tight end and instead bringing in a few undrafted free agents, it appears they feel confident with what they have in Swoope, which should allow him to take on a bigger role in the offense moving forward.

Troymaine Pope
News
Pope signed a contract with Indianapolis on Thursday, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Pope's signing with the Colts came in the wake of running back Christine Michael (undisclosed) being moved to injured reserve. Pope saw action in a combined four games with the Seahawks and Jets last season, totaling 44 yards on 12 attempts. He'll have a chance to earn a role as a depth running back with Indianapolis in 2017.

Harvey Binford
News
Binford was signed by the Colts on Thursday.

Binford was released by the Cardinals in May, and the 26-year-old has yet to play a down in the NFL. He'll provide depth at receiver in training camp for the Colts, but likely won't make the team's final roster.

Tyson Graham
No Updates
Johnathan Hankins
News
Hankins will sign a three-year, $30 million deal with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hankins' deal reportedly includes $14.5 million in guaranteed money. The talented defensive lineman was arguably the best defensive player left in free agency, and while the Colts were originally unlikely to sign him, they eventually decided they were willing to pay him the type money he has wanted for the past couple of months. As a player, Hankins should provide a major boost for the Colts' run defense, which was a bottom-10 group in 2016.

Lee Hightower
No Updates
Robert Turbin
News
The Colts likely will use more of a committee approach in the backfield this season, giving Turbin a heavier workload than last season's 47 carries and 35 targets, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.

Turbin only produced 3.5 yards per carry and 5.1 yards per target last season, but he found the end zone on eight of his 73 touches, including three of his his four carries from inside the 5-yard line and seven of his 14 from inside the 10. Fourth-round rookie Marlon Mack may be the flashier option to alleviate some of 34-year-old Frank Gore's workload, but Turbin's strong work in the red zone and as a pass blocker makes him the better bet to handle a significant snap count in Week 1. Turbin still doesn't offer much upside, as he failed to produce a 20-yard gain last season and has a long gain of just 26 yards on 328 career carries. He'd likely share playing time with Mack, and possibly Josh Ferguson, in the event of a Gore injury.

Nate Hairston
News
The Colts selected Hairston in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 158th overall.

Hairston was the top corner on a tough Temple defense last year. He was only a one-year starter, but Hairston's arrival was delayed by a position change from wide receiver his third year in school. Mediocre Combine testing leaves Hairston with a projection as a likely backup in the NFL.

Darryl Morris
News
Morris (hip) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin reports.

Morris suffered a hip contusion earlier in the contest, but was ultimately able to return as he'll get plenty of snaps at cornerback moving forward.

Mo Alie-Cox
No Updates
Tevaun Smith
News
Smith was waived by the Colts on Tuesday.

Smith was promoted to the active roster a little less than a month ago, but failed to record a reception in two games with the team. He'll now hit the free agent market in hopes of finding his way onto a 53-man roster or practice squad.

Al Woods
News
Woods signed a deal with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Woods spent his last three seasons with the Titans, racking up 66 combined tackles in 42 games while plugging holes along the defensive line. The Colts were 25th in opponent rushing yards per game in 2016, so Woods should provide a nice boost for their run defense going forward.

Clayton Geathers
News
Geathers is still rehabbing his neck after undergoing offseason surgery.

Geathers has been sidelined since being placed on the injured reserve following a neck injury in Week 12 of last season. Coach Chuck Pagano indicated he has "been at our facility every day during the offseason program rehabbing with our training staff." It is unclear when he will be able to transition from rehabbing to actually participating during these offseason workouts. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound safety finished the year with 59 tackles in nine games.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brian Schwenke
No Updates
Barkevious Mingo
News
Mingo signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Colts on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mingo spent last season on the Patriots after being traded from the Browns last August. The former sixth-overall pick had just 11 tackles while playing in all 16 regular season games. He'll likely be a backup linebacker for the Colts in 2017.

Chris Milton
No Updates
Quan Bray
News
Bray (ankle) signed his exclusive rights tender with the Colts, Joe Spears of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Bray was near the bottom of the Colts' receiver depth chart last season before injuring his ankle and ending the year on injured reserve. He'll compete for return duties in 2017 and could work his way up the depth chart as well.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
T.Y. Hilton
News
Hilton is dealing with a hamstring strain and is expected to be sideline for minicamp, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

The injury does not appear to be a long term concern but Hilton will get the week off to assure he is 100 percent for training camp. Look for more updates to come once training camp gets underway.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Marlon Mack
News
Mack (undisclosed) did not participate in June minicamp, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

While there's no indication the injury is significant, it isn't ideal for a rookie to miss any time during the offseason program. Mack still figures to be ready for training camp, where he'll compete with 27-year-old Robert Turbin and 2016 UDFA Josh Ferguson for backup work behind 34-year-old Frank Gore. The fourth-round rookie is the only one of the bunch with any real upside as a runner, but Turbin's combination of size, experience and pass-blocking ability makes him the favorite to earn the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. There could be room for three players to contribute each week, as the Colts seemingly hope to ease Gore's workload in what could be his final season.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bug Howard
News
Howard has agreed to terms with the Colts.

Howard, who joins the team as an undrafted free agent, brings a 6-foot-4, 221-pound frame and good hands to the table, but his subpar wheels hampered his draft stock. Indianapolis is fairly stacked at receiver, so Howard will need to be impressive in training camp in order to make it through final roster cuts.

Antonio Morrison
News
Morrison started at inside linebacker opposite Edwin Jackson with D'Qwell Jackson suspended and had nine total tackles in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Morrison played 49 of 67 snaps on defense as it looks like he'll get the bulk of playing time at inside linebacker while D'Qwell Jackson is out another three games after a PED suspension.

D'Qwell Jackson
News
Jackson (concussion) was released by the Colts on Thursday.

Jackson had a nice season for the Colts before being suspended for its final four games due to a violation of the NFL's performance enhancing substances policy, racking up 78 combined tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles. The veteran inside linebacker would have been owed $5.5 million of non-guaranteed money in 2017 had the Colts kept him, so it is not necessarily surprising to see him released, especially taking the recent suspension into consideration. Jackson is now entering his eleventh season, but still appears to have plenty of gas left in the tank and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.

Duke Williams
News
Williams was waived by the Colts on Monday.

Williams was among 10 players cut loose Monday as the Colts opened up roster spots for the slew of undrafted rookies they signed over the weekend. The 26-year-old will try to latch on with another organization after appearing in 10 games with the Bills and Colts in 2016, logging four total tackles.

Lavar Edwards
News
Edwards was released by the Colts on Friday, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.

Edwards played in five games for the Colts this season after being claimed off waivers in mid-October, totaling four tackles and a sack in limited action. However, he's been inactive in each of the past two contests and appears to have fallen out of favor in Indianapolis. Fellow outside linebacker and second-year player Deiontrez Mount was signed in a corresponding move.

Fred Brown
No Updates
Donte Moncrief
News
Moncrief (shoulder) is healthy and hopes to earn a long-term deal with the Colts as he prepares for the final season of his rookie contract, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

A third-round selection in the 2014 draft, Moncrief has flashed the potential to become an excellent sidekick for T.Y. Hilton, but a combination of injuries -- both his own and Andrew Luck's -- and general inconsistency has combined to slow his development and largely limited his impact to the red zone. Moncrief scored on 13 of his 94 receptions in 25 games over the past two seasons, but he produced only 11.1 yards per catch and 6.5 yards per target. Everything appeared to be in place for a breakout last season, but Moncrief instead suffered a fractured scapula in Week 2 and didn't return until Week 8. Moncrief then played through a hamstring injury for much of November and December, later missing Week 17 with another shoulder injury. There's still plenty of cause for optimism in the wake of what was essentially a lost season, as he's back to full health and locked in as the No. 2 wideout in what should be a high-powered passing attack. Boasting an elite combination of size and speed, Moncrief only needs one big season on his resume to cash in with a monster contract.

Jack Doyle
News
Doyle is the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Indianapolis, Colts.com reports.

Doyle's status as the top dog was confirmed without question when the Colts traded Dwayne Allen to the Patriots shortly after signing Doyle to a sizable three-year contract. The Indy offense has always made heavy use of tight ends with Andrew Luck under center, and the team is now left with just Erik Swoope behind Doyle on the depth chart. More help is likely coming through free agency and/or the draft, but everything is in place for Doyle to play a huge role in the Colts' 2017 passing game.

Andrew Luck
News
Luck (shoulder) has yet to begin throwing as of Tuesday, Brody Miller of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Luck spoke with the media during a break in Tuesday's Change The Play camp, noting his rehabilitation is "going well," despite the lack of throwing to date. The Colts don't require veterans to report to training camp until July 29, so a month remains before his first potential reps since undergoing surgery on a "slightly torn labrum" in his throwing shoulder in January. A full recovery from such a procedure typically requires six months, which he surpassed during the waning days of the offseason program. Whether or not he begins to toss the pigskin before camp, it's in the Colts' best interest to hold off until Luck's health is pristine, keeping his status up in the air for at least the next month.

Injury
Shoulder - Labrum - Questionable for the start of training camp
Darrell Daniels
News
Daniels will compete for a reserve spot on the Colts' 53-man roster, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Daniels was scooped up by the Colts after he went undrafted this spring and the rookie now has a chance to secure a spot on the depth chart behind Erik Swoope and Jack Doyle. He'll have to beat out the likes of Brandon Williams (concussion), Mo Alie-Cox and Colin Jeter during training camp and the preseason.

T.Y. McGill
News
McGill (shoulder) injured his shoulder during Sunday's 24-20 victory over the Jaguars.

The severity of McGill's injury wasn't specified, but he will have ample time to recover from this issue in the offseason with the Colts out of playoff contention.

Jabaal Sheard
News
Sheard signed a three-year, $25.5 million contract with the Colts, The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reports.

A versatile defender who can line up at both outside linebacker and defensive end, Sheard churned out 70 tackles and 13 sacks across 28 games for the Patriots the past two seasons. He'll now look to compete for a starting role with the Colts.

Stephen Morris
News
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.

Josh Boyd
News
Boyd signed with the Colts on Friday, UPI.com reports.

The team opted to waive linebacker Curt Maggitt in a corresponding move with the addition of Boyd. The 27-year-old played 26 career games, including four starts, in three seasons with the Packers. He tallied 43 tackles and one pass defensed in the process before ultimately being waived while recovering from an ankle injury. The Mississippi State product will look to compete for a spot on the Colts' final roster.

Frank Gore
News
Gore is expected to remain the Colts' lead tailback this season, CBS 4 Indy's Mike Chappell reports.

Gore, despite being 34 years old, is anticipated to receive around 16-to-18 carries per game, which could see him move into fifth all-time in rushing yards over the course of this season. However, with Robert Turbin coming off an impressive spring, and shifty rookie Marlon Mack also in tow, the Colts have alternatives to spare the veteran Gore on occasion. In 16 games last season, Gore averaged 3.9 yards per carry en route to 1,025 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and also caught 38 passes for 277 yards and four more scores.

T.J. Green
News
Green (shoulder) has been participating in OTAs and getting time as the starting strong safety with Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker missing training camp.

Green sprained his shoulder in the final game of last season, but it doesn't look like an injury to be worried about for the 2017 season. Green will likely have a reserve role, but it's possible he could be pressed into more action with both Geathers (neck) and Hooker (hip/sports hernia) sidelined in the spring due to offseason surgery.

Trey Griffey
News
Griffey (undisclosed) reverted to the Colts' injured reserve.

Griffey was waived on Monday after suffering an unspecified injury but reverts to the injured reserve list since he'd cleared waivers. Barring an injury settlement, he'll likely stay on IR all season.

Kamar Aiken
News
Aiken was told that there would be open competition for spots at wide receiver, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

T.Y Hilton and Donte Moncrief are locked in at the top, but with 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett shaping up as a disappointment, the rest of the Indianapolis wideout depth chart should be up for grabs. Aiken had to settle for a one-year deal in the wake of a disappointing 2016 season, but he did catch 75 passes for 944 yards in 2015 while serving as Baltimore's No. 1 receiver for much of the year. The Andrew Luck-led Colts could give the 27-year-old a real shot to get his career back on track, as Moncrief's injury history and Dorsett's poor performance leave the team without reliable pass-catching options behind Hilton.

The Colts selected Stewart in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 144th overall.

Stewart dominated the competition in the Southern Conference at Albany State. He was a three-time first-teamer in the Southern Conference and has good size at 6-foot-4, 334 pounds, but Stewart will have a learning curve at the next level as he adjusts to NFL competition. Stewart is a project with upside, but some may consider him a reach even at the bottom of the fourth round.

Kendall Langford
News
Langford (knee) said Monday he'll be ready for the start of training camp, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

Langford was restricted to just 10 tackles in seven games last season due to lingering symptoms from surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his knee. Although the defensive end is still going through rehab, he guaranteed he'd be ready for camp, which would bode well for his availability ahead of the regular season. In his first season with the Colts in 2015, Langford tied for the team lead with seven sacks.

Scott Tolzien
News
Tolzien, drawing the start for the injured Andrew Luck (concussion), completed 22 of 36 passes for 205 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in Thursday's 28-7 loss to the Steelers.

Tolzien turned in a solid effort in what was his first start in exactly three years, but a combination of factors helped derail any chances of a victory. The 29-year-old was victimized by drops on several occasions and also saw T.Y. Hilton go down with a back injury on a hit deep down the middle after a drop. Tolzien also came up short of the goal line on third-down scrambles on two separate occasions, and then couldn't connect with his receivers on the subsequent fourth-down play in either instance. Luck could well be back from the Colts' Week 13 road match-up versus the Jets, but if he's unable to be cleared in time, Tolzien certainly showed enough Thursday to be considered a fairly sneaky, albeit somewhat desperate, fantasy option against New York's vulnerable secondary with 10 days of prep time.

Phillip Dorsett
News
Dorsett has been battling a hamstring injury but believes he's "good to go" now, Zak Keefer of The Indy Star reports.

It isn't clear how much practice time Dorsett may have missed due to the hamstring injury but it doesn't sound particularly serious in any case. Furthermore, there hasn't been any word that his availability for training camp is in danger.

Robert Mathis
News
Mathis announced he'll retire after the 2016 season.

Mathis will play one final game Sunday against Jacksonville. He has four sacks this season and 122 career sacks along with five Pro Bowl appearances.

Christine Michael
News
Michael was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an undisclosed injury, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Michael suffered an injury during practice Wednesday and it appears as though it was at least mildly serious. Indianapolis signed running back Troymaine Pope to take the place of Michael on the current roster.

Erik Walden
News
Walden had a sack, a tackle for a loss and five total tackles in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Walden had a career high 11 sacks as he became the clear leader of Indy's pass rush. His career year came at the right time as he's set to be a free agent. However, he never had six sacks prior to this year and was never seen as a pass rush specialist.

Henry Anderson
News
Anderson (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Anderson missed each of the Colts' past two games with a knee injury, but his unrestrained practice Wednesday points to the former first-rounder being ready to return Sunday against the Titans.

Sean Spence
News
Spence has agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Colts, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

A 2012 third-round selection, Spence has started 19 of his 46 regular-season games, recording 144 tackles (100 solo) and five sacks. He's never locked down a role as an every-week starter, but he could get that opportunity with an Indianapolis team that has a clear weakness at inside linebacker.

Edwin Jackson
News
Jackson had six total tackles in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Jackson took over as a starter at inside linebacker after several injuries and suspensions. He averaged 6.6 tackles per game over his last five games after getting more playing time and put himself in a position to contend for a starting job next season.

Tarell Basham
News
The Colts selected Basham in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 80th overall.

Basham (6-foot-4, 269 pounds) is a big, athletic edge prospect who has good upside at a position of need for Indianapolis. He logged a 4.7-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 119-inch broad jump, and he finished his final season at Ohio with 10.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss.

Josh Ferguson
News
Ferguson had five carries for 11 yards in Monday's win over the Jets.

It was Ferguson's first carries since Week 5 as he got some playing time late in a blowout win. Ferguson had a regular role in the passing game to begin the season (19 receptions in the first give games), but hasn't played much since with just one reception and no carries in his previous six games. It's not likely Monday's performance earns him a significant role like he had early in the season.

Tevin Mitchel
News
Mitchel signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts.

Mitchel has struggled with injuries throughout his young NFL career. In 2015 he missed the entire season due to a torn left labrum. The cornerback then suffered a hamstring injury in the Colts' third preseason game this past season, resulting in his release from the team. He was brought back to the practice squad in Week 8, so he has plenty of experience with the team's personnel.

Darius Butler
News
Butler (head) could move from safety to cornerback in 2017, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

The Colts had announced prior to the draft that Butler would stick at safety again in 2017, but the team's first-round selection of safety Malik Hooker may have changed those plans. Even if Butler ultimately ends up remaining a starting safety in name, the Colts will likely be flexible with how they use him. Expect Butler to also see some work as a slot corner in five- or six-defensive back sets.

Injury
Head - Questionable for the start of training camp
Vontae Davis
News
Davis (groin) was removed from the Colts' injury report in advance of Monday night's game against the Jets.

Suspicion of Davis' game status grew after the corner logged a limited practice Thursday, but he ended the week with full sessions both Friday and Saturday. Barring a setback prior to kickoff, Davis will be ready to play.

Akeem Ayers
News
Ayers has four tackles, a sack and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.

Ayers played just 19 snaps, but his production could earn him more playing time.

Jeremiah George
News
George was signed by the Colts on Thursday.

George appeared in 15 games for the Buccaneers last season, but recorded just seven tackles. The Colts currently have a healthy corps of linebackers, but George figures to provide depth throughout training camp with a slight chance at making the team's final roster.

Quincy Wilson
News
Wilson (foot) is participating in Wednesday's OTA, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Wilson was sidelined during last week's OTAs due to a sore foot, but the 2017 second-rounder is back out on the practice field. He'll be competing for the No. 3 spot at cornerback behind starters Rashaan Melvin and Vontae Davis.

Deiontrez Mount
News
Mount was signed to the Colts' active roster Friday, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.

Mount (6-5, 249) is a 2015 sixth-rounder from Louisville who spent his rookie season with the Titans, but only lasted four games before landing on IR and was ultimately cut in August. He's resided on the Colts' practice squad since. Now on the active roster, he looks to provide depth at outside linebacker and contribute on special teams.

Jerry Ugokwe

John Simon
News
Simon signed a three-year deal with the Colts on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Simon joins his former division rival after spending the past three seasons in Houston. He recorded 51 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two pass deflections, and one forced fumble through 11 games with the Texans last season. Simon will now look to compete with Akeem Ayers and Curt Maggitt for a starting role at outside linebacker.

Jeremy Vujnovich

Hassan Ridgeway
News
Ridgeway (undisclosed) sat out the past few weeks of the OTAs, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Head coach Chuck Pagano only revealed that Ridgeway is "on the mend", which doesn't make it sound as if the 2016 fourth-rounder is particularly close to making a full recovery. If Ridgeway is unable to take part in mandatory minicamp this month, his next opportunity to practice won't be until training camp starts up at the end of July.

Injury

Margus Hunt
News
Hunt signed a two-year contract with the Colts on Monday, NFL Network reports.

Hunt has been a disappointment in the league since the Bengals selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft, but the native Estonian emerged as a serviceable run defender this past season, albeit in a limited role. Now in Indy, he merely projects to serve as depth along the defensive line.

David Parry
News
Parry (pectoral) got time as the starting nose tackle in Tuesday's OTAs, the team's official web site reports.

Parry strained a pectoral muscle late last season, but it doesn't look like a worry for the 2017 season. However, Parry may face a suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with driving under the influence, criminal damage, auto theft, suspicion of robbery and resisting arrest in an incident in February in Scottsdale, Arizona. Parry pled guilty to one count of attempted unlawful means of transportation and one count of disorderly conduct. He still faces a DUI charge.

Adam Vinatieri
News
Vinatieri converted 27 of 31 field goal attempts and all 44 of his extra points during the 2016 season.

Vinatieri, playing at 43 years old the majority of the season, tied for the sixth-best field goal percentage in the league at 87.1 percent. He was one of the few kickers to not miss an extra point throughout the year, too, and was a fantastic 7-for-9 on kicks longer than 50 yards. Set to return for the Colts in 2017, Vinatieri is yet to show any signs of slowing down his Hall of Fame career.

Brandon Williams
News
Williams (concussion) signed with the Colts on Monday.

Williams arrives in Indianapolis after the team traded tight end Dwayne Allen earlier this offseason. With only Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope remaining at the position, Williams adds depth to the Colts' options, even though his four-year totals of six receptions for 80 yards are rather uninspiring.
