Winn signed with the Colts on Wednesday. Even if he makes the team, Winn figures to, at best, serve as a depth running back for Indianapolis. Winn's best playing days were in 2014 and 2015 with Detroit when he appeared in 19 games.
Winn was released by the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports. Winn signed with the Giants as late-season filler for a running back position that was riddled with injuries. Now that everyone is healthy, the team has little need for Winn, who will look to catch on as a reserve running back with another team.
Winn signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports. The Giants placed Shane Vereen (triceps) on injured reserve, so Winn will be brought onto the roster to restore some depth at the position. Winn will find himself fourth on the team's depth chart, however, so it's unlikely he'll produce much in the way of fantasy value over the final two weeks of the season.
Winn was signed to the Lions' practice squad Wednesday. Winn had been released from the team's practice squad earlier in September, but they'll bring him back after fellow running back Ameer Abdullah (foot) was placed on IR. Winn could be in line for a spot on the 53-man roster eventually, but Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington will lead the backfield in the meantime.
Winn was released from the Lions' practice squad on Friday. Winn was likely Detroit's fourth or fifth option at running back and he wasn't likely to be promoted to the active roster unless injuries forced the team to do so. His release cleared the way for the team to sign offensive lineman Chase Farris to the practice squad.
