Sankey signed a contract with the Lions on Thursday.
Sankey joins the Lions after finishing last season on the Ravens practice squad. As a rookie in 2017, Sankey suited up for the Colts in six games, seeing the field for 100 special teams snaps but not a single defensive play. He'll compete for a reserve linebacker and special teams role while with the Lions.
Sankley was waived by the Colts on Wednesday.
Sankey has played in six games for the Colts this season but primarily played special teams and did not record a tackle. The 23-year-old was let go to make room for linebacker Jermaine Grace.
The Colts promoted Sankey to their active roster Monday.
Sankey has spent time on both the practice squad and active roster this season. He got to see the field in Week 2 against the Cardinals. The 22-year-old will presumably help provide depth at inside linebacker and play a special teams role.
The Colts opted to waive Sankey on Monday.
Sankey was just promoted to the active roster prior to Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He will presumably clear waivers and revert back to the team's practice squad.
Sankey has been promoted to the Colts' 53-man roster, Mike Chappell of of CBS 4 News Indianapolis reports.
Sankey's upgrade from the practice squad is encouraging, but still doesn't land him on any fantasy radars. The depth linebacker figures to play mostly special teams come Sundays.
Sankey signed a contract with the Colts on Wednesday.
Sankey, a second-year linebacker who spent training camp with the Vikings, will provide depth at linebacker for the Colts.
Sankey was waived by the Vikings on Sunday.
Sankey has little experience under his belt, but given his youth and upside there's a chance that another team will give him an opportunity to earn a roster spot.
Sankey signed with the Vikings on Saturday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The Vikings waived Shaan Washington, who was on the PUP list, in a corresponding roster move. Sankey, an undrafted rookie out of Sacramento State, figures to be a long shot to make the final roster.
