Ausberry finishes the year with just two catches for 14 yards in six games.
Cornerback Jansen Watson, who was cut by Oakland before the season, has been added to the practice squad.
The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line.
Williams, an undrafted rookie running back, was signed by the Colts in late-December and made his only contributions to the stat sheet in the season finale. In his two games on the team's roster, he provided depth behind Frank Gore and Dan Herron, but will have to compete for that role again in 2016.
A reserve inside linebacker, McNary hasn't seen much of the field since Jerrell Freeman returned from an injury in Week 15. McNary finishes his season with 14 tackles in 13 appearances, after registering 28 takedowns in 15 games last season. His contract runs through 2016, but there's a good chance he'll have to compete for a roster spot next year.
With Andrew Luck (kidney) and Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) uncertain for Week 17, there's some chance Stephen Morris could get the start in a game that's unlikely to have any impact on the playoff picture. In addition to needing a win and a Texans loss, the Colts need at least six other games to go in their favor to hand them the strength-of-victory tiebreaker. Whitehurst, meanwhile, is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle. It sounds like he's on pace to return, but we'll need to see how he holds up during training camp.
Smith wasn't able to get back to full strength after knee surgery earlier in the fall. The 2015 third-round pick played just four games with one tackle in his rookie season.
Castonzo has been a starter for Indianapolis since entering the league in 2011.
Mewhort was getting these reps due to Gosder Cherilus unavailable. Mewhort entered the league as a left guard.
"Versatility is hard to find," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "So obviously him playing a bunch of spots and playing everywhere along the line is definitely the more you can do. I think everybody is well aware of that spot and us trying to fill that hole right now. I'm fully confident that we've got the guys in this building right now that we're going to be fine there."
Studebaker joined Indianapolis late last season, after playing 70 games for the Chiefs from 2008-2012. Now, the linebacker will hit the free agent market once again, as he hopes to land somewhere ahead of training camp.
After recording career-low marks for both tackles (32) and sacks (three) in his first season with Indianapolis, the 33-year-old Cole had to accept a reduced salary to avoid being released. He'll largely be limited to passing downs next season, and the Colts will probably try to secure a young pass rusher within the first two days of the 2016 NFL Draft.
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.
In his first three seasons with the Seahawks, Turbin established himself a decent handcuff for Marshawn Lynch, accumulating at least 250 yards rushing on each occasion. Turbin was also adept as a pass-catcher, with 43 receptions (on 55 targets) for 427 yards and two touchdowns during that span. However, he suffered a high-ankle sprain at the end of the preseason and promptly waived a few days later before he was plucked by the Browns. Making 10 appearances with Cleveland and Dallas thereafter, he managed nearly 4.0 yards per carry and 2.3 yards per target on 5.7 touches per game, meaning the best-case scenario in Indianapolis is a change-of-pace role behind Frank Gore.
Randall is 5'11". Out of the six cornerbacks currently on the Packers' roster, five are below six-feet tall. The sixth, Tay Glover-Wright, is six-foot even.
General manager Ted Thompson isn't concerned with the Packers' lack of height at cornerback. "We're tall enough," he said, per the Journal Sentinel.
Todman was released by the Panthers following the preseason last year, but ultimately signed with the Steelers and went on to play 11 games. While Todman managed just four carries for 22 yards in Pittsburgh, he adds depth to the Colts' backfield ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Kerr has increasingly become a significant part of the rotation on the defensive line this season as he played 37 of 72 snaps on Sunday.
Geathers had nine total tackles and played 63 snaps last week, so he'll be a strong IDP option this week. The 2015 fourth-round draft pick could be making his case to stay in the starting lineup.
The undrafted rookie wide receiver primarily served as a returner for the Colts since being signed prior to Week 8's loss to the Panthers. He finished the season with 21 kick returns for an average of 27.1 yards per return, to go along with 21 punt returns for an average of 7.9 yards per return in 9 games played. Bray has another year left on his contract with the Colts, but don't expect him to move any higher than fifth on the wide receiver depth chart, unless there's an injury to T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, Andre Johnson, or Phillip Dorsett.
Hilton was able to rack up 1,000 yards receiving for the third consecutive year, despite quarterback Andrew Luck (abdomen/kidney) missing a total of nine games. The small, but speedy 26-year-old has five years remaining on his current contract with the Colts, and will thus be able to improve alongside Luck in the future. As long as he remains healthy, fantasy owners wouldn't be crazy to expect Hilton to produce another thousand-yard season in 2016, but as always temper expectations for his production in the red zone.
Moore is a former third-round selection by the Raiders in 2013 that was surprisingly acquired by the Colts last September in exchange for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. When he initially arrived in Indianapolis, both inside linebacker spots were being proficiently manned by the likes of D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman. However, with Freeman now a member of the Bears, there is an open competition for the role next to Jackson between Moore and fellow ILB Nate Irving.
Johnson, who turns 35 in July, remains unsigned well after the opening of free agency, though we suppose that an offer will arrive down the road once team's wideout depth charts are solidified by the NFL Draft, or altered by injuries. In 16 games, including 14 starts for the Colts in 2015, Johnson finished with 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns.
"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."
After putting in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, he was held out of practice Friday, yet will be in the lineup at inside linebacker. After racking up 11 tackles in each of the last two games, he'll be needed to slow down TJ Yeldon and the Jaguars rushing attack.
Adams missed the last two games with the injury, but looked back to full speed.
Moncrief played with a toe injury the final month of the season and aggravated it in the last game. His return from the injury will be something to monitor this summer.
Following Coby Fleener's departure in free agency, there figures to be some added snaps available for Doyle in 2016, though Dwayne Allen remains the Colts' top option at tight end, from a fantasy perspective. Doyle finished up the 2015 season with 12 catches for 72 yards and a TD in 16 games for Indy.
Luck's 2015 season was marked by shoulder and ankle injuries before suffering a lacerated kidney and partially torn abdomen on Nov. 10, which ultimately ended his season. He had already proclaimed himself fully healthy, but it's reassuring to hear him have no problems during spring practices. It looks like he'll be fully ready for training camp this summer.
Freeman joined the Colts amid their quarterback injury crisis in late December and actually started the team's season finale just days later, completing 15-of-28 passes for 149 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Still, that performance wasn't enough to secure Freeman's future in Indianapolis, where fellow backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is set to leave this offseason as well, leaving a vacancy behind Andrew Luck on the Colts' depth chart.
McGill had the first two sacks of his NFL career as the undrafted free agent from North Carolina state saw an increased role on the defensive line. He could see a larger role in Week 17 as he auditions for a prominent job in 2016.
Morris doesn't get a chance to play this week with Freeman signed earlier this week.
Gore's finger injury contributed toward him losing three fumbles this season, when he finished with 967 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns. Now that Gore has time to have his ailment repaired, the veteran will begin his 11th offseason with finger surgery next week.
Langford has a career-high six sacks as he's getting plenty of snaps on the defensive line. He played 51 of 72 snaps on defense in Sunday's win.
The terms of his deal remain a bit unclear, but he will move from backing up one franchise quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, to another in Andrew Luck. He will need to beat out Stephen Morris for the backup job, but Tolzien's experience likely gives him the edge heading into training camp.
Guy had two tackles in the loss. It's not clear if he'll be able for a special teams role again this week.
No updates were given on the injury but it will be something to keep an eye on as the offseason progresses.
Mathis has seven sacks and 19 tackles, which is more than was expected of the 34-year old after missing a full season due to a PED suspension and Achillies injury.
Walden returned after missing a game due to a foot injury and resumed a starting role at outside linebacker.
Overton tweeted on his personal account that he will be with the Colts for another four years. In three seasons with the Colts, Overton has appeared in 48 games and has made 22 special teams tackles.
He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013.
The Colts are currently searching for Jerrell Freeman's successor at inside linebacker next to D'Qwell Jackson, and, if OTAs are any indication, the frontrunners for the gig include Irving and fellow LB Sio Moore. Both of whom have seen the most first-team reps while Jackson receives rest. However, Irving is coming off of two injury-marred seasons; his 2014 season as a Bronco ended with an ACL tear, and a wrist injury ended his most previous campaign with the Colts. Fortunately, head coach Chuck Pagano reports that Irving finally looks like he is completely over his blown-out knee from two seasons ago. If this is true, Irving should be viewed as the favorite to win this competition.
Herron came over to Indianapolis from the Bills for the final seven games of the season, primarily providing depth in the Colts' backfield. The 26-year-old will be a restricted free agent, and likely won't see much of an increased role if he remains on the Colts roster in 2016.
Bradshaw suffered a wrist injury during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and will now land on season-ending IR for the third straight season. In just six games played this term, the 29-year-old managed only 85 yards on 31 carries, but caught three touchdown passes on 10 receptions. With Bradshaw out, expect the Colts to rely on the combination of Frank Gore and Dan Herron going forward.
The Colts lost both Andrew Luck and Anderson for the season during a Week 9 win versus the Broncos, but the defensive end's injury was lost in the wake of the franchise quarterback's ordeal. In any case, Anderson has embarked on his second ACL recovery -- the other occurred in high school -- as he attempts to show that his impressive rookie campaign wasn't a fluke. In parts of nine games before the injury, he notched one sack among 31 tackles (19 solo).
Mitchel is out for the year with a shoulder injury. He was placed on the waived/injured list Wednesday after having been drafted in the sixth round.
Smith is an undrafted rookie who played at Clemson.
Butler moved from nickelback to starting opposite Vontae Davis with Greg Toler out. Butler played 73 of 76 snaps on defense and could continue to see an expanded role if Toler remains out.
McAfee would have been an unrestricted free agent if he didn't sign the deal by Tuesday.
Davis was ProFootballFocus.com's sixth highest-graded player in the entire NFL throughout the 2014 season, but dealt with a pesky foot injury in 2015 that hindered his week-to-week performance. Reportedly, however, Davis was nearly declared an injury scratch prior to multiple contests. Thus, the fact that he did play all 16 games may say more about his toughness than his 2015 performance may say about any sort of decline in ability. Now nearing full health, look for Davis to return to shut-down form in 2016.
Filling an obvious need opposite standout corner Vontae Davis, Robinson is coming off a 49-tackle, one-pick campaign with the Chargers, his sixth in the NFL. In addition to the output, the 28-year-old Robinson allowed just 8.9 YPC, which was the second-best mark of 118 corners who logged at last 25 percent of their team's snaps last season, according to Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site.
Despite catching just 16 passes in 13 games last season, Allen recently re-signed with the Colts for $29.4 million over four years. He's a strong inline blocker with solid receiving skills, but he never topped 66 targets while sharing playing time with Coby Fleener the past four years. If Fleener isn't re-signed, Allen could see a major bump in targets next season, potentially filling a three-down role.
Ridgeway (6-foot-3, 303) had some injury troubles at Texas, but he was generally productive and certainly has good athleticism for his position, highlighted by a 32-inch vertical and 113-inch broad jump. He'll likely contribute as a 3-4 end for the Colts.
Brown had been placed on injured reserve with the Colts in October and later released. He was signed last week. Brown started three games earlier in the season, so he should know the defense. He'll start opposite Vontae Davis.
After completing 10 years apiece with both the Patriots and Colts, the symmetry was there for Vinatieri to call it a career, but the 43-year-old will keep on trucking with the latter organization. Despite failing to connect on a field goal until Week 4 this past season, he amassed 100-plus points for the 18th time on the backs of 25 field goals. Moreover, he was proficient from the new extra-point distance, connecting on 32 of 35 attempts. With Andrew Luck unlikely to endure back-to-back injury-plagued campaigns, Vinatieri could be among the elite fantasy options yet again in the fall.
It's not clear when Varga could return from a concussion, so he was placed on injured reserve to make room for Ahmad Bradshaw.
The Colts bolstered their depth at wideout Thursday by adding a pair of former New England pass-catchers to the mix, in Tyms and Josh Boyce. With the 27-year-old Tyms, the team adds a 6-foot-3, 204-pounder who brings good size and some potential as a deep threat to the table.
The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line.
